The Messenger of Allaah sallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa sallam said: "Whoever directs someone to a good, then he will have the reward equal to the doer of the action". [Saheeh Muslim]


 

(its never too late to start)

وَالْفَجْرِ .وَلَيَالٍ عَشْرٍ

“By the ten nights.” [Al- Fajr, v:2]

The “ten nights” which Allaah subhaana wa ta3alaa is swearing by here, are the first 10 days of Dhul-Hijjah. [1] Allaah [subhaanahu wa ta3alaa] swears an oath by them, and swearing an oath by something is indicative of its importance and great benefit.

Ibn 3Abbas radi Allaahu 3anhu narrated that Prophet sall-Allaahu 3Alayhi wa sallam said: “There are no days in which righteous deeds are more beloved to Allaah than these ten days”.

He was asked: “Not even jihaad for the sake of Allaah?” He said: “Not even jihaad for the sake of Allaah, except in the case of a man who went out to fight giving himself and his wealth up for the cause, and came back with nothing.” [2]

So, my sisters [and brothers] take note of the following:

Have the intention to spread this important information.

It is a great chance to collect uncountable hasanaat [rewards].

It is a great chance to renew your relation with Allaah [subhaana wa ta’alaa].

Prepare now so you can start from the first night/day of the month [i.e. as soon as Dhul-Hijjah is announced]. You don’t want to miss a moment of the best days in the sight of Allaah [subhaana wa ta3alaa].

Since the Prophet sall-Allaahu 3Alayhi wa sallam referred to the 10 days of Dhul-Hijjah as: “…no days better than these days in the sight of Allaah.” [3], the scholars have said that these are better than Ramadan. [4]

Therefore, be very vigilant and don’t waste these precious moments. Ask Allaah to help you to benefit from this period of His special Grace.

Ask yourself these questions [non-rhetorical]:

Did you intend to benefit from these days?

What have you done to prepare for these 10 days?

Did you prepare a program?

What is your plan of action?

Here is a brief guide to help you to prepare for the best days of the year
