Why is Dhul Hijjah Important?
- Dhul Hijjah is one of the four sacred months mentioned in the Holy Quran. The four sacred months are Dhul Qadah, Dhul Hijjah, Muharram, and Rajab.
- The first 10 days of Dhul Hijjah are considered the best days of the year and therefore, performing good deeds during these blessed days is highly encouraged! Ibn Abbas reported that our Beloved Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said: “No good deeds done on other days are superior to those done on these (first ten days of Dhul Hijjah).
- In this Holy month, one of the most important pillars of Islam the Hajj takes place where Muslims from all around the world gather to worship Allah Almighty. Many other acts of worship are also performed during this time of year such as voluntary fasts and charity, especially in the first 10 days of Dhul Hijjah.
- The day of Arafah falls on the 9th day of the month of Dhul Hijjah. On this day, non-pilgrims have the opportunity to extinguish the sins of two years by just fasting the day.
The Prophet (PBUH) said: “There is no day on which Allah frees more people from the Fire than on the day of ‘Arafah.” (Muslim)
