Ten Blessed Days of Dhul Hijjah

Categories: Articles

I swear by the dawn, [89:1] and by the Ten Nights, [89:2].

Sayyidina Abu Hurayrah (Ra) said that the Messenger of Allah Salallahualayhewasalam said: ” There are no days on which Allah likes better to be worshipped than the ten days of Dhul Hijjah. Fasting observed on each of these days is equivalent to a Year’s fasting, and salah during each of these nights is equivalent to salah during Laylatul Qadr.”

(Tirmidhi Shareef)

Narrated Ibn Abbas (RA): The Prophet said, “No good deeds done on other days are superior to those done on these (first ten days of Dhul Hijja).” Then some companions of the Prophet said, “Not even Jihad?” He replied, “Not even Jihad, except that of a man who does it by putting himself and his property in danger (for Allah’s sake) and does not return with any of those things.”
