Shaykh Yasir Qadhi delves into the virtues of the first ten days of Dhul Hijjah and the good deeds that can be done during the first ten days of Dhul-Hijjah.
These are the days that are more superior than the blessed month of Ramadan and Fridays.
The Prophet ﷺ 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.”
Some of the good deeds that can be performed in these blessed days are as follows:
- Performing Hajj and Umrah
- Fasting in these days
- Saying the Takbeer often
- To repent to Allah SWT from our sins
- Extra prayer, Qur’an and Dhikr
- Sacrificing an animal
- Pray the Eid prayer – it is obligatory upon every Muslim – man or woman
- Appreciate the blessings of Allah ,thank Allah for what he has given you and ask Allah for forgiveness for the sins committed.
