First Ten Days of Dhul-Hijjah (Hadith No. 784)

Assalamu`alaykum,
Bismillah.

Hadith no. 783 is a repeat. Read it here.

Volume 2, Book 15, Number 784:

Narrated Ibn Abbas:

The Prophet said, “No good deeds done on other days are superior to those done on these (first ten days of Dhul Hijja).” Then some companions of the Prophet said, “Not even Jihad?” He replied, “Not even Jihad, except that of a man who does it by putting himself and his property in danger (for Allah’s sake) and does not return with any of those things.”

These days have great excellence and superiority over all other days. These are the days right before Eid-ul-Adha, or the Hajj days, as we know them. One should maximize their good deeds in these days to benefit most from them.

I’ve written a detailed post on it once before, taken from Dr. Farhat Hashmi’s mind-blowing lecture on the subject. Do read! :)

Wassalam.

Girl, you’re beautiful!

Dil ka parda* is more important”, they say;
Do not let their judgements sway
Your resolve and your faith,
For good comes to those who wait

This world is not the real deal,
Don’t let it from your conscience, steal
When it guides you to what is right;
There’s more to strength than physical might.

This covering up is really hard,
While society continuously whispers, “discard!”
Tell them it’s not for them to decide,
Allah is your Companion, your Guide.

They say, “you’re beautiful, can’t you see?”
But what of humility and modesty?
There’s more to beauty than what meets the eye,
That is a fact which no one can deny!

* an Urdu phrase – when literally translated means “veil of the heart” but actually refers to the concept of modesty being in the heart. It’s a phrase often used to say that it’s more important to be modest in your heart than covering yourself outwardly.
