The Best Days are yet to come…

by Umm Muawiyah

Assalamu Alaikum.

It’s true, you know.

Best Days of the Year = The First Ten Days of Dhul Hijjah.

And we’re still in Dhul Qaaidah.

[Oh, you thought that I meant something else? Sorry.]

So, what do we do? Well, how about if we start preparing for it? You know, so that we can squeeze these 10 days for all they are worth?

See, these 10 days are almost like a mini-Ramadan (talk about recovering Ramadan, huh?). The only reason that we don’t think that way is because they’re not as heavily advertised as Ramadan.

What’s the first thing to do? Well, we need to read about the virtues of these great days, of course.

Here’s a really nice treatise on this matter that discusses their virtues as well as the recommended deeds to be done during them (no, Hajj is not the only recommended deed that can be done in them):

Virtues of the First Ten Days of Dhul Hijjah and Recommended Deeds to be Performed During Them

    Jazakillahi kheiran for this post (and all the others during & after Ramadan)… Would you happen to know of any articles I can read on Dhul Hijjah because if I’m ever in a rush an article is usually more covenient…it doesn’t need to load and I can just print it off to carry with my and read at leisure..

    Thanks, Jazakilliahi again!!
