Best Acts to Do in the First 10 Days (Dhul Hijjah)

Upon us are the best 10 days of the year (Islamic Calendar) – the days of action – the days of Dhul Hijjah

Shaykh Yasir Qadhi shares with us tips on how to spend our time in these blessed days.

Dhu al-Ḥijjah (ذو الحجة) is the twelfth and final month in the Islamic calendar.

This is a very sacred month in the Islamic calendar, marking the end of the year. It is in this month in which the Hajj (pilgrimage) takes place.


"Dhu al-Hijjah" literally means "Possessor of the Pilgrimage." It is during this month that pilgrims from all around the world congregate at Mecca to visit the Kaaba. The Hajj is performed on the eighth, ninth and the tenth of this month. Day of Arafa takes place on the ninth of the month. Eid al-Adha, the "Festival of the Sacrifice", begins on the tenth day and ends on the thirteenth.



Timing


The Islamic calendar is a lunar calendar, and months begin when new moon is sighted. Since the Islamic lunar calendar year is 11 to 12 days shorter than the solar year, Dhu al-Hijjah migrates throughout the seasons.
