The Blessings of the Ten Days of Dhul Hijjah
-الصــلوة والسلام‎ عليك‎ ‎يارسول‎ الله ﷺ

On the authority of Hadrat Sayyiduna Abu Hurayrah (Radi Allahu Anhu), the Messenger of (SallAllahu Alayhi waSallam) said: “There are no days more beloved to Allah that He be worshiped in them than the ten days of . Each day of fasting in it is equivalent to the fast of an entire year. And each night standing in prayer is equivalent to standing in prayer on the Night of Power (Laylat al-Qadr).” [Jaami’ al-Tirmidhi, Vol. 3, Hadith 758]

Also due to the stature and merits of these days, Allah swore by them when He said:
“By oath of the (particular) dawn. And by oath of ten nights. [al-Fajr: 1-2],”

and in them, He bestowed many of His bounties on . Hadrat Sayyiduna Ibn Abbas (Radi Allahu Anhu) relates that in the ten days of Dhul , Allah accepted the repentance of Adam (Ala Nabiyyina wa Alayhis Salam), and in it Prophet Ibrahim (Ala Nabiyyina wa Alayhis Salam) became the intimate friend (khalil) of Allah
“…And Allah made Ibrahim His close friend. [al-Nisa: 125].”

Hence, he submitted his wealth to the two noble guests (i.e. the angels sent to the people of Lut [Hud: 69-79]), his soul to the flames, his son to sacrifice, and his heart to the Most-Merciful One (al-Rahman). In it the Prophet Musa (Ala Nabiyyina wa Alayhis Salam) was also honored with the following call, “Said Allah,
“O Moosa! I have chosen you from mankind by (bestowing) My messages and by My speech; so accept what I have bestowed upon you and be among the thankful.” [al-A’raaf: 144],” and Prophet Dawud (Ala Nabiyyina wa Alayhis Salam) was granted forgiveness, “We therefore forgave him this; and indeed for him in Our presence are, surely, proximity and an excellent abode. [Saad: 25].”
