What is the significance of the first 10 days of Dhul-Hijjah?
Dhul-Hijjah [the Month of Hajj] is the 12th month of the Islamic lunar year. It is during this month that the annual pilgrimage to Makkah [Mecca], known as Hajj, takes place. The actual pilgrimage rites take place on the 8th to 12th days of the month.
According to the Prophet Muhammad [Peace be Upon Him], the first ten days of this month are a special time for religious devotion. During these days, preparations are underway for those who are undertaking the pilgrimage, and most of the actual pilgrimage rites occur. In particular, the 9th day of the month marks the Day of Arafah, and the 10th day of the month marks the Eid al-Adha [Festival of Sacrifice]. Even for those who are not traveling for the pilgrimage, this is a special time to remember Allah and spend extra time in devotion and good deeds.
