The month of Dhul Hijjah is among the most sacred times in the Islamic calendar. A month marked by greater spirituality, we experience the Hajj and Eid el Adha, two very unique occasions dedicated to Allah (SWT).
Many people are unaware that the first ten days of Dhul Hijjah are, without exception, the best ten days of the year, superior to all other days. They surpass the days of Ramadan in quality.
The Prophet (ﷺ) said: “There are no days on which righteous deeds are more beloved to Allah than these ten days” (Bukhari).
Perhaps you believe that you could have accomplished more during the holy month of Ramadan? Maybe you’ve let that Ramadan sensation goes by now.
Insha’Allah, these cherished ten days present yet another opportunity to reap enormous rewards, have our sins pardoned, and grow much in piety.
Two very important occasions occur in a month of elevated spirituality, and they are both performed in adoration of Allah (SWT).
This is not just the Hajj month, but also the glorious Eid al-Adha day.
