PostHeaderIcon The month of Dhul Hijjah

Dear Brothers and Sisters
 Assalaamu'alaykum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh .The month of Dhul Hijjah is one of the most blessed months in the Islamic calendar. In a hadith reported by Ibn Abbas, the Holy Prophet (PBUH) is reported to have said that:


“There are no days in which righteous deeds are more beloved to Allah than these ten days.” The people asked, “Not even jihad for the sake of Allah?” He said, “Not even jihad for the sake of Allah, except in the case of a man who went out to fight giving himself and his wealth up for the cause, and came back with nothing” (Bukhari 2:457).
There are certain things that one must do in the first 10 days of this beloved month so as to be able to reap as many rewards as possible
Fasting
 The first ten days are of significance when it comes to fasting but the 9th day which is the day of Arafah is of even greater significance. It is Sunnah to fast on the 9th day and Prophet (PBUH) encouraged us to keep fast and do good deeds especially on this day.  All the deeds of the son of Adam are for him, except for fasting, which is for Me and I am the One Who will reward him for it” (Bukhari 1805).
Offer a sacrificial animal
“Their meat will not reach Allah, nor will their blood, but what reaches Him is piety from you. Thus have We subjected them to you that you may glorify Allah for that [to] which He has guided you; and give good tidings to the doers of good” (Quran 22:37).
 The sacrifice must be given on between the 10th to 12th Dhul Hijjah, as these are the designated and preferred dates – sacrifice on any other days of the month do not hold the same kind of significance. here are many rewards for performing good deeds during these ten days and so one should try and give as much in charity as possible.


“If you loan Allah a goodly loan, He will multiply it for you and forgive you. And Allah is Most Appreciative and Forbearing” (Quran 64:17).   good loan means a charitable deed.  Hence the first ten days of Dhul Hijjah are the best days to make up for lost time with the Lord.
Remember Allah
. In Surah Baqarah the Lord says:  And when My servants ask you, [O Muhammad], concerning Me - indeed I am near. I respond to the invocation of the supplicant when he calls upon Me. So let them respond to Me [by obedience] and believe in Me that they may be [rightly] guided” (Quran 2:186).
Remembrance of Allah can be in many forms, read Quran , thikri  etc.
