مَثَلُ الَّذينَ يُنفِقونَ أَموالَهُم في سَبيلِ اللَّهِ كَمَثَلِ حَبَّةٍ أَنبَتَت سَبعَ سَنابِلَ في كُلِّ سُنبُلَةٍ مِائَةُ حَبَّةٍ ۗ وَاللَّهُ يُضاعِفُ لِمَن يَشاءُ ۗ وَاللَّهُ واسِعٌ عَليمٌ

The example of those who spend in the way of Allah is just like a grain that produced seven ears, each ear having a hundred grains, and Allah multiplies (the reward) for whom He wills. Allah is All-Embracing, All-Knowing.
(Qur’an 2:261)

The ten best days

By the dawn and by ten nights

{Qur’an 89:1–2}

Referring to the first ten days of the month of Hajj, the Prophet ﷺ said, “There are no days during which the righteous action is more pleasing to Allah than these days.”

For the first nine days, fasting is recommended, especially on the ninth day, which is the Day of ‘Arafāt.

Qurbani (Udhiyyah)

In commemoration of the willingness of Prophet Ibrahim (AS) to sacrifice his son in obedience to Allah, Muslim families across the world offer Qurbani, the sacrifice of an animal. By arranging this through one of the many Muslim charities, you can ensure that the meat of the Qurbani is given to the poor and needy.

For those who are offering Qurbani, remember the Prophet ﷺ explained we should not cut our nails or hair from the beginning of Dhūl Hijjah until the day of Eid:

“When the ten days (of Dhūl Hijjah) commence and a person has a sacrificial animal, which he intends to slaughter, then let him not cut his hair or pare his nails.” (Muslim)

Dhikr & Remembrance of Allah

Our Prophet ﷺ said:

“There are no days that are greater before Allah or in which good deeds are more beloved to Him, than these ten days, so recite a great deal of tahleel,  takbeer  and tahmeed during them.” (Ahmad)

  • Tahmeed: Al-hamdu Lillah (All praises be to God)
  • Tahleel: Laa ilaha ill-Allah (There is no god but Allah)
  • Tasbeeh: Subhaan-Allah (Glory be to God)

While there are different versions, the takbeer can also be recited as follows:

Allahu akbar, Allahu akbar, laa ilaaha ill-Allah, Allahu akbar, wa Lillaah il-hamd.

Allah is Most Great, Allah is Most Great, there is no god but Allah; Allah is Most Great and to Allah be praise.
