Month of Dhul-Hijjah

Assalamu alaikum warahmahtullah wabarakatuhu (Peace and blessings of Allah be upon you all),

As you may be aware the month of Dhul-Hijjah 1431 starts today Monday 8/11/10 and thus Eid-ul-Adha is expected on the 10th of Dhul-Hijjah (Tuesday 16/11/10) with the day of Arafah on Monday 15 November 2010.

The Prophet (Peace be upon Him) has said: "There are no days in which righteous deeds are more beloved to Allaah than these ten days..." (Bukhari) so strive hard to perform as many righteous acts during these days.

The Prophet (Peace be upon Him) has also said: "There are no days greater in the sight of Allaah and in which righteous deeds are more beloved to Him than these ten days, so during this time recite Tahleel ("La ilaaha ill-Allaah"), Takbeer ("Allaahu akbar") and Tahmeed ("Alhamdulilah") abunduntly." (Ahmad).

One of the best acts of worship a muslim can do is fast for the sake of Allah which in addition will multiply the reward of his good deeds in that state; "Allaah the almighty says: ‘All the deeds of the son of Adam are for him, except for fasting, which is for Me and I am the One Who will reward him for it." (Bukhari)

These ten days include the day of Arafah on which Allaah perfected His Religion. Fasting on this day will expiate for the sins of two years (those committed in the preceding year and those that will be committed in the following) (An-Nisaa’i, Abu Dawood).

Hence dear respected brothers and sisters, hasten to perform good deeds and fast for the sake of Allah. These days only appear annually and nobody knows if they will see the following day never mind the next year.

WAllahu alam (and Allah knows Best)
