Ibn `Abbas (Ra) reported that the Prophet (Sallahu Alaihi Wassalam) 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, giving himself and his wealth up for the cause (of Allah), and came back with nothing." (Reported by Al-Bukhari)

The above Hadith confirm that the first ten days of Dhul-Hijjah possess tremendous blessings and excellence. The Scholars have stressed that these special and blessed days and nights should be spent in intensive worship and virtuous acts as well as contemplation. Therefore we should ensure that we make the best of these blessed 10 days. We cannot afford to miss out on such immense rewards at any cost!

Scholars also confirm that the daytimes (Fajr to Maghrib) of the first 10 days of Dhul Hijjah are more virtuous than the daytimes of Ramadan. This clearly indicates how special and blessed the first 10 days of Dhul Hijjah really are.

Let us use these blessed 10 days wisely, and gain maximum benefit from them. Certain sections of the forum are closed during Ramadhan for precisely that reason, so that we are not tempted to waste time, to help us maximise the benefit we gain from these blessed periods. Let us not underestimate the importance of these ten days, and let us not waste time in idle activities, online or offline inshaa'Allah. And I remind myself first and foremost.


P.S. Please do not move this to the Hajj, Umrah and Eid section. In the general section, perhaps more people may benefit from it inshaa'Allah.
