[B]The dates of the Blessed 10 days & nights of Dhul Hijjah 2014[/B]
Dhul Hijjah is the last month of the Islamic calendar and also the sacred month of Hajj. So blessed are the first 10 days of Dhul Hijjah that according to a large group of commentators of the Qur’an, Allah swears by these 10 days in Surah Fajr:
Allah the Most High & Exalted says: By the Dawn; By the ten Nights; [B](89:1-2)[/B]
The Prophet (Sallahu Alaihi Wassalam) has said regarding these Blessed days:
"There are no days in which righteous deeds are more beloved to Allah than these ten days."The people asked , "Not even Jihad for the sake of Allah?" He said, "Not even Jihad for the sake of Allah, except in the case of a man who went out, giving himself and his wealth up for the cause (of Allah), and came back with nothing." (Reported by Al-Bukhari)
Many great scholars say that the first 10 days of Dhul Hijjah are even more superior than the days of Ramadan. It is clear then that these 10 days possess tremendous blessings and excellence.
Therefore we should spend these 10 blessed days & nights in intensive worship & virtuous acts. How can we possibly afford to miss out on such immense rewards for surely we would be of those in utter regret in the Hereafter!
