The Excellence of the First 10 Days of Dhulhijjah

Labels: , ,

1. Allah says in the Qur’ân: “By the dawn and by the ten nights … “ [Al-Qur'ân 89:1-2]

Ibn Kathîr said that “the ten nights” referred to here are the ten days of Dhul-Hijjah, and this opinion was also held by Ibn Abbâs, Ibn az-Zubair, Mujâhid and others. [Tafseer Ibn Katheer, 8/413]

2. The Messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه وسلم‎ said:
“There are no deeds as excellent as those done in these ten days.” 
 They (the companions listening) said,
“Not even Jihâd?” He, peace be upon him, said, “No, not even Jihâd except a man who goes forth endangering his life and wealth and does not return with anything.”
 [Recorded by al-Imâm al-Bukhârî, 2/457]

3. The Messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه وسلم‎ said:
“There are no other days that are as great as these in the sight of Allah, the Most Sublime. Nor are there any deeds more beloved to Allah then those that are done in these ten days. So increase in tahlîl (to say lâ illaha illallah), takbîr (to say allahu akbar) and tahmîd (to say alhumdulillâh).” 
[Reported by Ahmad, 7/224; Ahmad Shaakir stated that it is saheeh]

4. Ibn Hajar رحمه الله says in Fath al-Bârî:
“The most apparent reason for the ten days of Dhul-Hijjah being distinguished in excellence is due to the assembly of the greatest acts of worship in this period, i.e. salawât (prayers), siyâm (fasting), sadaqah (charity) and the hajj (pilgrimage). In no other periods do these great deeds combine.“

5. Ibn Kathîr said:
"These ten days are better than all the other days of the year, with no exceptions, not even the last ten days of Ramadaan. But the last ten nights of Ramadaan are better, because they include Laylat al-Qadr." [Tafseer Ibn Katheer, 5/412]

6. "The happy person is the one who makes the most of these special months, days and hours and draws nearer to his Lord during these times through acts of worship; he will most likely be touched by the blessing of Allaah and will feel the joy of knowing that he is safe from the flames of Hell." [Ibn Rajab, al-Lataa’if, p.8]
