The first ten days of the month of Dhul-Hijjah are the best days of the year. They are virtuous.

Allaah most loves the doing of good deeds on these days. He has taken an oath by these days in His Book saying,

By the Dawn and by the Ten Nights
—Sooratul-Fajr 89:1-2

And the Prophet (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) said, “The best days in the world are the ten days.”

We are encouraged to increase in making takbeer {saying Allaahu akbar} and in making tahleel {saying Laa ilaaha illallaah} and making tasbeeh {saying Subhaanallaah} and tamheed {saying Alhamdulillaah} during the 10 days.
