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.

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.

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

“When the ten days (of Dhū Al-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)

In these blessed days don’t miss your chance for charity – please donate to the East London Mosque to support our vital community services.
