The Best Days are yet to come…

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):
