Ten days of Zul Hijjah

PrintE-mail

The first ten days of Zul Hijjah have been accorded  great virtue in Islam. Thus one should exert oneself in Ibadah in these days.
      Hazrath Ibn Abbas (R.A.) narrates that Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) said: “On no other days are good deeds more liked by Allah than on these days (first ten days of Zul Hijjah).” The Sahaaba (R.A.) asked: “ O Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) not even Jihad in the way of Allah?” Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) replied: “Not even Jihad in the way of Allah, except for that person who goes out to fight with his life and wealth and does not return with anything.”  (Bukhari).

 


LAYLATUL QADR

In another hadith Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) is reported to have said: “On no days is the worship of Allah more desirable and pleasing to Him than in the first ten days of Zul Hijjah. The fast of each of these days is equal to the fast of a whole year and the Ibadah of each of these nights is equal to the Ibadah of Laylatul Qadr” (Tirmizi). Similarly it is related from Hazrath Ibn Abbas (R.A.) that Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam)  said: “No days are so weighty by Allah and so much liked by Him in terms of good deeds than the first ten days of Zul Hijjah. So in these days increasingly read: Tasbeeh (Subhanallah), Tahleel (La-Ilaaha-Illalla), Tahmeed (Alhamdulillah) and Takbeer (Allahu Akbar)” (Tabrani).
