Making the Most of Dhul Hijjah 2018
4 ways to make the most of Dhul Hijjah
First 10 Days of Dhul Hijjah
In reference to the first ten days of Dhul-Hijjah, The Prophet(saw) has said:
“There are no days in which righteous deeds are more beloved to Allah than these ten days.” [Sahih Al-Bukhari]
It is clear then that these 10 days are extra special.
We present four things to do to make the most out of these special days:
1. Offering Qurbani
Qurbani is a great sacrifice in which we remember the great Prophet Ibrahim (as). It’s also a highly recommended Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad (saw). In fact, our Prophet (saw) would cherish this act so much that he thought of you when doing it, by making the sacrifice on behalf of the entire Ummah.
You can give your Qurbani through Penny Appeal for just £29.
We’ll make sure that 100% of your Qurbani goes directly to those most in need across Asia, Africa and the Middle East.
2. Fasting the 9 days of Dhul Hijjah
It is recommended to fast on the first nine days of Dhul Hijjah, especially on the 9th which is the blessed day of Arafah.
Abu Qatadah Al-Ansar(radhiallah Anha) narrated:
“The Messenger of Alla(saw) was asked about fasting on the day of Arafah. He replied: “Fasting on the day of Arafah is an expiation for the preceding year and the following year.”
3 . Reciting tasbeeh, tahmeed, tahleel and takbeer abundantly
These words should be recited abundantly in the masajid, homes, streets and in every place where it is permissible to remember and glorify Allah.
4. Doing more good deeds than usual & give to charity
The Prophet(saw) said: “There are no days in which righteous deeds are more beloved to Allah than these ten days (Dhul Hijjah).” [Ibn Majah]
Therefore we should increase the amount of good deeds we do in order to take advantage of this blessed time where good deeds are increased significantly.
One of the most blessed acts is to give charity. At Penny Appeal, we take your small change and make a BIG difference with it.
