The Importance of Dhul Hijjah
July 13, 2021
The month of Dhul Hijjah is not only when the Hajj is completed and Muslims celebrate Eid al Adha but the first ten days of the month are considered the best of days in which to do good.
Prophet (PBUH), said: “There are no days in which righteous deeds are more beloved to Allah than these 10 days.” [Bukhari]
These days are considered the best time to worship, give charity and do good for others. The rewards are incalculable and there are so many ways to earn them!
- Fasting on the Day of Arafah (9th day of Dhul Hijjah)
- Giving charity in first 10 days (including Eid day)
- Completing a Qurbani
- Sharing food and gifts with others
- Being kind and making dua for others
- Worship and prayer
Gaza has experienced its fourth large scale bombardment as well as still being under siege and coping with Covid 19. The situation is dire for thousands of families and their Eid will be marred by worry and struggle.
You can earn rewards and do good for our brothers and sisters in Gaza too. Please remember them in your prayers, considering a Qurbani in Gaza or donate towards meat parcels and financial aid to bring some ease and joy to their Eid al Adha.
