First 10 days of DhulHijjah

Assalamu alaikum brothers and sisters

I pray that you are well in shaa Allah

Just a reminder that the first 10 days of DhulHijjah are the best days of the year and last 10 nights of Ramadan are the best 10 nights of the year

In these 10 days; we should increase our supplications, sunnah prayers, acts of charity, taubah (seeking forgiveness of Allah) and all righteous deeds, obviously focusing on avoiding any sin and improving our obligatory actions more than anything, and getting closer to Allah by reading The Qu’ran and reflecting upon what He teaches us.

There’s also the takbir for these 10 blessed days that we, as a Muslim, must say. Men loudly; women quietly.

“Allaahu akbar, Allaahu akbar, la ilaaha ill-Allah, Allaahu akbar wa Lillaahi’l-hamd”

And hasten to forgiveness from your Lord and a garden (Paradise) as wide as the heavens and earth, prepared for the righteous (3:133)

Race toward forgiveness from your Lord and a Garden whose width is like the width of the heavens and earth, prepared for those who believed in Allah and His messengers. That is the bounty of Allah which He gives to whom He wills, and Allah is the possessor of great bounty. (57:21)

Sunan Ibn Majah states that ‘there are no days in which righteous deeds are more beloved to Allah than these ten days’.

The Prophet (ﷺ) said: “Fasting on the day of Arafah is an expiation for the preceding year and the following year.” (Ibn Majah)

For those who give in Charity, men and women, and loan to Allah a Beautiful Loan, it shall be increased manifold (to their credit), and they shall have [besides] a liberal reward. (Holy Qur’an 57:18)

A believer who performs Qurbani with sincerity will reap a reward for every hair of the animal they sacrifice. (Tirmidhi)

There’s also some recommended deeds on Islam QA:

We must also remember that any sin committed during these special days is more greater than if committed other times, so we must avoid sin as much as possible and use this opportunity to not only become closer to Allah but also to have our sins forgiven, in shaa Allah

May Allah accept it from us and forgive us all of our sins :palms_up_together:t3:

Eid Mubarak in advance
