1. Allah has taken oath of ten nights in Soorah Al-Fajr. According to the majority of the commentators of Qur'ãn, the nights are those of the (first) ten days of Zul Hijjah.

2. Abdullah Ibne 'Abbãs radhiallahu anhu related that the Prophet sallalahu alayhi wasallam said, "Good deeds performed on other days are not superior to those performed on these (first ten days of Zul Hijjah)." The Companions radhiallahu anhum inquired, "Not even Jihãd?" He replied, "Not even jihãd, except for that person who goes out putting himself and his wealth in danger and does not return with anything." (Bukhãri)

The first ten days of Zulhijjah are among the most magnificent days in Islamic calendar. The Holy Prophet, Sall-Allahu alayhi wa sallam, has said, "One fast during these days is equal to the fasting of one complete year, and the worship of one night during this period is equal to the worship in the "Lailatul-Qadr".

Every Muslim should avail of this wonderful opportunity by performing during this period as much Iba'dah (acts of worship) to Allah as he or she can.

(The entire conversation, which is a must for every Haji to read, can be found in the book Virtues of Haj by Moulana Muhammad Zakariyya (R.A.) at the end of Chapter Four.)

Hdrat Abu Hurairah (RA) states that Nabi (S.A.W.) has said: “The Haji and one who performs Umrah are the Ambassadors of Allah. If they beseech Him, He responds to them, and if they seek His forgiveness He forgives them.” (Ibn Majah)

As the guest of Allah, a Haji has the distinguished status of being the ambassador of Allah. He enjoys the special mercy and forgiveness of Allah for responding to His invitation. Abu Hurairah (RA) states that Nabi (S.A.W.) has said:“He who performs Hajj without being vulgar or obscene, returns (home cleansed from all sin) as the day his mother gave birth to him.” (Bukharî & Muslim)

Abdullah Ibn Umar (r.a) reports that Rasoolullah sallallahu alayhi wasallaim said, "When you meet a Haajji (on his way home) then greet him, shake hands with him and ask him to beg forgiveness of Allah on your behalf before he enters his home, for his prayer for forgiveness is accepted since he is forgiven by Allah for his sins."
(Ahmad)
