First Ten Days OF Dhul Hijjah: Days of Virtue and Righteous Deeds

First Ten Days of Dhul Hijjah: Days of Virtue and Righteous Deeds

On the authority of Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him) it is related that the Prophet (peace be upon him) said,

“There are no days more loved to Allah for you to worship Him therein than the ten days of Dhul Hijjah. Fasting any day during it is equivalent to fasting one year and to offer Salatul Tahajjud (late-night prayer) during one of its nights is like performing the late night prayer on the night of power. [i.e.,Lailatul Qadr].”

[Tirmidhi, Ibn Majah, and Baihaqi]

    Ibn Abbaas, may Allah be pleased with him, reported that the Prophet (sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam) said: There are no days during which good deeds are more beloved to Allah than these days; meaning the first ten days of Dhul-Hijjah. They inquired: Not even Jihad in the cause of Allah? He said: Not even Jihad in the cause of Allah, unless one goes out for Jihad sacrificing both his life and property and returning with neither. (Al-Bukhaari)
