Nine Sunnahs to Follow on the First Ten Days of Dhul-Hijjah

Nine Sunnahs to Follow on the First Ten Days of

The first ten days of Dhul-Hijjah are the most virtuous days of the year, in which Allah (swt) has blessed his Ummah with opportunities to multiply their rewards through His infinite mercy. These days are so sacred that Allah swears an oath by them:‘By the dawn; by the ten nights’ [The Noble Qur’an, 89:1-2].

And Allah also reminds us: ‘Remember Allah during the appointed days’. [The Noble Qur’an, 2:203]

Therefore, we should increase our acts of worship during this sacred time. The Prophet (saw) said, ‘There are no days in which righteous deeds are more beloved to Allah than in these (ten) days’. [Abu Dawud]

Here are nine Sunnah actions you should follow to seek Allah’s forgiveness and maximise your reward during the best ten days of the year:

  1. Dhikr

Let’s begin with a simple yet effective action – increasing your dhikr. In Makkah, the Talbiyah will be on every pilgrim’s tongue throughout the day and night; those at home have also been commanded to praise Allah constantly in these ten days.

The Eid takbeer is an example of dhikr that ticks all three of these boxes – tahleel, takbeer and tahmeed.

You can also make dhikr after your five daily prayers – SubhanAllah 33 times, Alhamdulillah 33 times, and Allahu Akbar 34 times. 

Reciting SubhanAllahi wa bihamdihi (Glory be to Allah and praise Him) one hundred times a day will wipe away sins – no matter how burdensome they are.

These simple measures will ensure you are remembering Allah throughout the day and benefitting from the blessings of Dhul-Hijjah.

  1. Fast the first nine days

It is Sunnah to fast on the first nine days of Dhul-Hijjah, because fasting is one of the best of deeds. In a hadith Qudsi, Allah says, ‘All the deeds of the son of Adam are for him, except fasting, which is for Me and I shall reward for it’. [Bukhari]

If you are unable to fast for the whole nine days, try to fast on just the Day of ’Arafah, the 9th of Dhul-Hijjah. Just as Laylat al-Qadr is the most blessed night of the year, ’Arafah is the most blessed day of the year. The Prophet (saw) said, ’There is no day on which Allah frees more people from the Fire than on the day of ‘Arafah’. (Muslim)

Like Laylat al-Qadr, we should spend this day seeking forgiveness and availing ourselves of Allah’s incredible mercy. On this day, non-pilgrims have the opportunity to extinguish the sins of two years by fasting! The Prophet (saw) said, ′It (fasting on the Day of ‘Arafah) expiates the sins of the past year and the coming year’. [Muslim]

  1. Recite Qur’an

Reciting the Qur’an is one of the best acts of worship we can perform to draw closer to Allah and seek his pleasure. The Prophet (saw) said, ’Whoever reads a letter from the Book of Allah, he will have a reward. And that reward will be multiplied by ten. I am not saying that “Alif, Laam, Meem” is a letter, rather I am saying that “Alif” is a letter, “laam” is a letter and “meem” is a letter’. [Tirmidhi]

SubhanAllah, imagine the rewards you will earn from reading each letter during these blessed days when Allah has promised to multiply your reward!

  1. Remember loved ones

Many of us will try to perform a Hajj specifically for a loved one that has passed away or make du’a for loved ones during our own Hajj so that Allah will forgive them and have mercy on them on the Day of Judgement.

If you are unable to perform a Hajj for a loved one you can still honour them by giving Sadaqah Jariyah in their name on these blessed days. Prophet Muhammad (saw) said, ‘When a person dies, his deeds come to an end except for three: Sadaqah Jariyah, knowledge from which benefit is gained, or a righteous child who prays for him’. [Muslim]

Our beloved Prophet (saw) told us that giving water is the best form of Sadaqah. By building a well in the name of your loved one you will be gifting a source of life to a whole community and increasing your loved one’s record of good deeds for the Day of Judgement.

  1. Pray Tahajjud

It’s been one month since the last ten nights of Ramadan, and many of us are missing the ‘spiritual high’ of seeking out Laylat al-Qadr through our nightly worship. But did you know that praying at night for the first ten nights of Dhul-Hijjah is equivalent to praying on Laylat al-Qadr?

  1. Give Sadaqah 

Many of us maximise our Sadaqah during the last ten nights of Ramadan, but the first ten days of Dhul-Hijjah are just as valuable and present the perfect opportunity to earn extra rewards for simple good deeds!

Hasan al-Basri (rh) said, ‘Going to fulfil the need of your brother is better for you than performing Hajj after Hajj’.

Helping our brothers and sisters in need is one of the acts most beloved to Allah and we have the perfect tool to help you maximise your rewards over the blessed days of Dhul-Hijjah. The Best 10 Days allows you to automate your donations to five emergency locations, including Yemen and Syria, providing food, clean water and medical supplies to suffering families.

  1. Repent

Hajj is the ultimate act of worship we can perform as Muslims to seek forgiveness from Allah and expiate our sins, but most of us are lucky if we can go even once in our lifetime. That is why Dhul-Hijjah is the perfect gift from Allah, allowing us to repent and seek forgiveness for our sins even if we are not on pilgrimage.

Repentance brings us closer to Allah and cleanses our souls. Allah says:

‘Seek forgiveness of your Lord and repent to Him, [and] He will let you enjoy a good provision for a specified term and give every doer of favour his favour’. [The Noble Qur’an, 11:3]

  1. Pray Eid Salah

Eid Salah is one of the ways we show our Islamic identity as a community and is therefore a very important act of worship for all Muslims to partake in. The Prophet (saw) always attended Eid Salah, as did his companions after he had passed away. He encouraged everyone to attend, even menstruating women – who are unable to perform the prayer itself but can still share in the blessings of this gathering. 

  1. Give a Prophetic Qurbani

Abu Talhah (ra) reported, ‘The Prophet (saw) sacrificed for the one who could not sacrifice from his Ummah, one who bore witness to the Oneness of Allah and [his] Prophethood’. [Tabarani and Ahmad]

During Eid, the Prophet (saw) would offer an additional sacrifice on behalf of someone in his Ummah that could not afford to. Allah says, ‘There has come to you a Messenger of Allah from among yourselves, who is distressed by the losses you sustain, who is ardently desirous of your welfare and is tender and merciful to those that believe’. [The Noble Qur’an, 9:128]

SubhanAllah, this generous act of our beloved Messenger of Allah is an incredible example of His mercy to His Ummah that Allah refers to in the above ayah, to sacrifice for his Ummah and cover them till the Day of Judgement.

You too can follow this beautiful Sunnah and give an extra Qurbani to maximise your reward during Dhul-Hijjah. Not only will you be reviving a forgotten Sunnah, but you will be also doubling your impact by feeding even more families a rare meal with meat during the days of Eid-al-Adha.

In sha Allah, these nine tips will help you make the most of the first ten days of Dhul Hijjah. From everyone at AMWF, we’d like to wish you a blessed month full of good deeds, forgiveness and closeness to Allah.

Maximize your Reward during Dhul-Hijjah, Hajj, Arafah, Eid-al-Adha, with Qurbani. Not only will you be reviving a forgotten Sunnah, but you will be also doubling your impact by feeding even more families a rare meal with meat during the days of: Giving charity during Dhul-Hijjah

    Dhul-Hijjah is a holy month in the Islamic calendar. It is a month of Hajj, fasting, prayer, and charity. The first 10 days of Dhul-Hijjah are considered to be the most sacred, as Hajj, Arafah, Eid-al-Adha, with Qurbani falls within this time period.
The first 10 days of Dhul-Hijjah, Hajj, Arafah, Eid-al-Adha, with Qurbani is a time of great blessing and reward. It is said that the rewards of worship performed are multiplied many time over. Therefore, it is a time when Muslims strive to increase their worship and good deeds.
    Today marks the day of Arafah, and it presents a unique opportunity to reap the potential rewards of charity. I am personally inviting you to contribute generously to Aaron & Margaret Wallace Foundation (AMWF), allowing us to GROW our service to the OVER 30,000 people and 1,000’s of Muslims a month that depend on us to facilitate Allah’s (SWT) provisions of sustenance on this very special time, iA.
    One of the best ways to increase one’s good deeds during Dhul-Hijjah is to give charity. Charity is an act of worship that is greatly rewarded by Allah. It is also a way to help those in need and to show compassion for our fellow human beings.
    There are many different ways to give charity during Dhul-Hijjah. You can donate money to a charity, volunteer your time to a local soup kitchen or homeless shelter, or simply give food or clothing to someone in need. No matter how you choose to give, your act of charity will be rewarded by Allah.
    If you are looking for ways to increase your rewards during Dhul-Hijjah, I encourage you to give charity. It is a simple act that can have a profound impact on the lives of others.
    Here are some tips for giving charity during Dhul-Hijjah:
    •    Donate to a reputable charity like AMWF. There are many charities that do great work in the Muslim community and around the world. Do some research to find a charity that you trust and that is working on causes that are important to you like AMWF.
    •    Give what you can. Don’t feel like you have to donate a large amount of money. Even a small donation can make a big difference with AMWF.
    •    Be generous. Don’t just give to those who are in obvious need. There are many people who are struggling who may not be as obvious. Be generous with your time, your money, and your resources with AMWF.
    •    Give anonymously. There is no need to announce your donations to the world. Let your act of charity be a private matter between you and Allah.
Giving charity during Dhul-Hijjah is a great way to show your faith, your compassion, and your generosity. It is also a way to reap the many spiritual and practical benefits of giving. So this Dhul-Hijjah, make an effort to give charity and make a difference in the lives of others with AMWF.
    This is your chance to multiply the impact of your Qurbani, Zakat and Sadaqa. 
    Whenever, Wherever, Whatever concerns Muslims address in their lives, WE have been there with SUPPORT for SOLUTIONS in the way of Allah (SWT), AHDL. AMWF has been and will continue to be here to ensure that EVERYONE will thrive, iA. 
    Do not miss out on the power and promise of this Dhul-Hijjah. 
    May YOUR Dhul-Hijjah end in the best way possible by making a Generous donation to change the lives of many Muslims/People in ALL the many communities that we serve. Your reward may be greater than that of 1,000 months. 
    We invite you to give an amount that is meaningful to you, whether it’s $5, to $10,000 or any other amount you are comfortable that Allah (SWT) is comfortable with. ONLY Allah knows what you can afford, AHDL.
    Please donate an amount that reflects your LOVE for Allah (SWT).
    Your donations are tax-deductible and zakat-eligible and can be made:
    If you have donated, increase your Donation.
    Just as important, please keep AMWF, your Family, Friends, those in your community and the Needy in your duas, iA!
    May ALLAH accept your good deeds and grant you and your families salat, dua’s, forgiveness; Bless you with your BEST First 10 days of Dhul-Hijjah EVER and REWARD YOU and your Families abundantly with many more, and with Jannatul Firdaus in paradise directly under his throne, iA!”
