Are the 10 Days of Dhulhijjah More Virtuous Than the Last 10 Days of Ramadan?

Labels: ,

Ibn ‘Abbaas (may Allah be pleased with him and his father) reported that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said,
“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 to fight giving himself and his wealth up for the cause, and came back with nothing.”
 [al-Bukhari]




Shaykhul Islam Ibn Taymiyah (may Allah have mercy on him) was asked:
“Which is more virtuous & beneficial, the 10 days of Dhul Hijjah or the last 10 days of Ramadan?”
So he answered:
“The 10 days of Dhul Hijjah are more virtuous than the last 10 days of Ramadan, and the last 10 nights of Ramadan are more virtuous than the last 10 nights of Dhul Hijjah.” 
 Ibn Qayyim (may Allah have mercy on him) commented on this verdict and said:
“And if the intelligent and noble one was to reflect upon this answer, he would find it satisfactory and sufficient. For indeed there are no days (in the year) more beloved to Allah that righteous actions are done within them than the 10 days of Dhul Hijjah, since within them are the days of Arafaah (9th day of Dhul Hijjah) and the day of Nahr (10th day) and the day of Tarwiyah (8th day). As for the 10 nights of Ramadan they are the nights of revitalization which the Messenger used to be up in awakening within them all, and within it is a night which is better than 1000 months. So whoever answers without such an elaboration then he is incapable to prove his statement with authentic evidences.”

[Chapter: The Preference Between Aa’isha and Fatimah, Al-Fawaaid, Ibn Qayyim]
