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]

The Best Days

قال صلى الله عليه وسلم: “أفضل أيام الدنيا أيام العشر” رواه البزار من حديث جابر بن عبدالله

Prophet sallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa sallam said: “The best days in this worldly life are the (first) ten days (of Dhul-Hijjah).” (1)

Ibn katheer said: “It has been that in general, the best days of the year are the first ten days of Dhul-Hijjah- just as the hadeeth says – and that they are far more superior than the last ten days of Ramadaan!  That is because Allaah has legislated prayer & fasting & voluntary charity etc during the month of Ramadaan, however, the first ten days of Dhul-Hijjah are distinguished for having been chosen for the performance of the rights of Hajj.” (2)

عن ابن عباس رضي الله عنهما عن النبي  صلى الله عليه وسلم قال : ” ما من أيام العمل الصالح فيهن أحب إلى الله منه في هذه الأيام العشر . قالوا ولا الجهاد في سبيل الله !! قال : ولا الجهاد في سبيل الله ، إلا رجل خرج بنفسه وماله ولم يرجع من ذلك بشيء ” أخرجه البخاري 2/457 

Ibn 3Abbaas radi Allaahu 3Anhuma reported that the Prophet sallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa sallam said: “There are no days in which righteous deeds are more beloved to Allaah than these ten days.”

The people 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.” (3)

عن عبد الله بن عمر رضي الله عنهما عن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم قال : ” ما من أيام أعظم عند الله ولا أحب إليه العمل فيهن من هذه الأيام العشر فأكثروا فيهن من التهليل والتكبير والتحميد “ . أخرجه احمد 7/224 وصحّح إسناده أحمد شاكر

3Abdullaah ibn3Umar radi Allaahu 3Anhuma reported that the Prophet sallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa sallam said: “There are no days greater in the sight of Allaah and in which righteous deeds are more beloved to Him than these ten days, so during this time recite a great deal of Tahleel (Laa ilaaha illAllaah), Takbeer (Allaahu Akbar) and Tahmeed (Alhamdulillaah)”.

    Maryam center does not have any transport facilities for students. There is a Al-khor group coming to center weekly one time, they have arranged their own bus. May be you can also do the same, make sisters from your area ready & arrange a bus to go to Maryam center.
    They have good weekly classes for English & Urdu speakers and you can still register inshaaAllaah.
