1st Dhul Hijjah 1427 – 21st December 2006

asSalaam ‘alaykum wa Rahmatullaah,

I don’t understand arabic very well but this site according to Hood and AE says it is the 1st of Dhul Hijjah. The local Houston community hasn’t announced anything on their website (yea, pathetic, prolly cuz most of the people are gone for Hajj) and I had to take a journey to and from Dallas all day today, so didn’t hear anything at the masjid.

Virtues of the 10 days of Dhul Hijjah (IslamQA)

Practical Steps (if you arent at Hajj or Umrah):

1) Fast the days of this season

2) Make a lot of adhkaar

3) Do good deeds as they are magnified, maybe carry dates around and when the Maghrib adhaan is called, offer them to others.

4) Make sure your intentions are purified

I recieved an email form a few brothers written by Br. Hesham Ebeid and it’s parts are reproduced in the following:


1) They are the best days in the year
The Prophet Muhammad (saw) said about these first ten days: “ The best days in the world are the ten days.”

2) Righteous deeds on these days are more beloved to Allah than on any other days

Ibn `Abbas (ra) reported that the Prophet (saw) said: “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.” (Reported by al-Bukhari)

3) Allah (swt) swears by them in the Qur’an, indicating their importance

When Allah (swt) says in the Qur’an: “By the dawn; by the ten nights.” (Al-Fajr 89: 1-2)

Many scholars are of the opinion that this refers to the first ten days of Dhul-Hijjah. Ibn Kathir said: “This is the correct opinion.” (Tafsir Ibn Kathir, 8/413). Allah swears an oath by them, and swearing an oath by something is indicative of its importance and great benefit.
