This is the month of Hajj — starting today.

About this the Prophet (sallallaahu ’alayhi wa sallam) said, “The best days in the world are the ten days.” [1]

This year, the first 10 days of Dhull-Hijjah runs September 25th to October 4th. It’s good to:

  • Do good deeds
  • Avoid sins,
  • Make tawbah
  • Perform the Night Prayer,
  • Sunnah Fasts
  • Say lots of:
    • Tasbeeh [which is to say the word “Subhaanallaah”],
    • Tamheed [which is to say the word “Alhamdulillaah”],
    • Tahleel [to say “Laa ilaaha illallaah”],
    • Takbeer [saying “Allaahu akbar”]
