Dhul Hijja: The 10 Best Days

The month of Dhul Hijjah is one of the holiest periods of the Islamic year SubhanAllah. A month of increased spirituality, we witness two very special events (Hajj and Eid ul Adha) – all in devotion to Allah (SWT).

Many people don’t know that the first ten days of Dhul Hijjah are better than all the other days of the year, the 10 best days with no exception. They are even better than the days of Ramadan, SubhanAllah!


“There are no days on which righteous deeds are more beloved to Allah than these ten days (the first 10 days of Dhul-Hijjah).” 

Prophet Muhammad (SAW)

An opportunity for immense reward

After the holy month of Ramadan, maybe you feel that you could have done more throughout the sacred month? Perhaps you’ve since let go of that Ramadan feeling?

Well, these beloved ten days offer another chance to gain rewards, have our sins forgiven and reach great levels of piety, Insha’Allah.

A month of increased spirituality, we witness two very special events – all in devotion to Allah (SWT).

Not only is this the month of Hajj, but also the blessed day of Eid al-Adha.

On this day, each and every one of us, who is able, offers  Qurbani – just as Prophet Ibrahim (AS) did – in devotion to Allah (SWT) and to help vulnerable communities in need across the globe, including right here in SA.

The first ten days of Dhul Hijjah are often referred to as the best ten days of the year, and a second chance after Ramadan. For those of us not performing the Hajj pilgrimage this year, this is still a great time of blessing and immense reward.

Don’t be disheartened that you could not make it for Hajj this year, you can still reap the rewards by gifting a Qurbani.  We also have something special planned for all of you during these big days.
