InshaAllaah the Islamic Month of Dhul Hijjah starts on Sunday 6th October, Arafaat Day is on Monday 14th & Eid on Tuesday 15th (subject to moonsighting).
“There are No days in which righteous deeds are more beloved to Allaah than these 10 days.” [Bukhaari]
“There are No days greater in the sight of Allaah (including Ramadhaan) in which righteous deeds are more beloved to Him than these 10 days, so during this time recite a great deal of Tahleel (“La ilaaha ill-Allaah”), Takbeer (Allaahu Akbar) and Tahmeed (Al Hamdu Lil-laah).” [Ahmad]
A Sunnah of the Prophet s.a.w: “When you see the new moon of Dhul-Hijjah, if any one of you wants to offer a sacrifice, then he should stop cutting his hair and nails until he has offered his sacrifice.” [Muslim]
A Sunnah: “The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) used to fast on the first 9 days of Dhul-Hijjah and the day of ‘Ashoora’, and 3 days each month – the first Monday and 2 Thursdays of the month”. [Nasaa’i, Abu Dawood]
*Fasting on the Day of ‘Arafaah.* Prophet Muhammed(pbuh) said, “It expiates for the sins of the previous year and of the coming year.” [Muslim]
“There is no day on which Allaah frees more people from the Fire than the Day of ‘Arafaah. He comes close and expresses His pride to the angels, saying, ‘What do these people want?’” [Muslim]
Takbeer of Tashreeq:
After each Fardh Salaah Recite from Fajr of 9th Dhul Hijjah (Mon 14 Oct) until Asr of 13th Dhul Hijjah(Fri 18 Oct)
Laa ilaaha il-lAllaahu,
