“There are no days in which good works are more beloved to Allah than these days”.
The virtues of Dhul Hijjah are immense.
We are coming closer and closer to Dhul Hijjah, one of the four sacred months, the first ten days of which are more virtuous than those of even Ramadhan according to many scholars.
This is the month in which Hajj is performed, in which the Qurbani sacrifices are made, and in which we celebrate Eid.
Before beginning anything, it is important to make our intentions as sound as possible.
So let us enter this month with the intention of making the most out of it’s blessed days for Allah’s sake, by keeping steadfast to the remembrance of him and by fasting the Day of Arafah, seeking expiation of our sins for the previous and forthcoming year. As well as the intention of seeking increase in Taqwa through the act of Qurbani.
It is recommended to fast the first 9 days, especially the ninth (9th of Dhul Hijjah), the day of Arafah – even for pilgrims, so long as it does not weaken or tire them.
“There is no day on which Allah frees people from the Fire more so than on the day of ‘Arafah. He comes close to those (people standing on ‘Arafah), and then He reveals before His Angels saying, ‘What are these people seeking.” (Muslim)
