Making The Most Of The Blessed Days Of Dhul-Hijjah‏

Below is a transcription of a lecture on how to benefit from the blessed days of Dhul-Hijjah by Umm ‘Abdur-Rahmân. May Allâh reward the sister who transcribed the lecture.

“By the ten nights.” [Al-Fajr 89:2]

The “ten nights” which Allâh [subhâna wa ta’âlâ] is swearing by here, are the first 10 days of Dhul-Hijjah. [1] Allâh [subhâna wa ta’âlâ] swears an oath by them, and swearing an oath by something is indicative of its importance and great benefit.


Last Year…
1000’s of animals were sacrificed on your behalf in countries around the world. Meat was distributed in packets. As a result 1000’s of people who are too poor to consume meat were given a chance to incorporate the nutritional benefits of fresh meat into their diet. This year Minhaj Welfare Foundation is performing Qurbani’s {cows, sheep, and goats} in 18+ Countries Worldwide.

The angel knocked again and again,

Friend! I'll take your life without a pain,

Tis your soul Allah requires,

I come not with my own desire.

Bewildered, the man began to cry,

O Angel I'm so afraid to die,

I'll give you gold and be your slave,

Don't send me to the unlit grave.

Let me in, O Friend! The Angel said,
