Friday 2 August 2019 has been declared the first day of the Islamic month of Hajj, Dhū Al-Hijjah. This means that the Day of ‘Arafāt will be on Saturday 10 August 2019, and Eid al-Adhā on Sunday 11 August 2019 with Eid prayers at 7:00am, 8:00am, 9:00am, 10:00am and 11:15am.

May Allah bless all the pilgrims as they undertake the great pillar of Hajj this month.

The best 10 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, when the pilgrims on Hajj gather on the Plain of ‘Arafāt.

Qurbani (Udhiyyah)

In commemoration of the willingness of Prophet Ibrahim 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.
