Wednesday, August 23, 2017

The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia declared that Wednesday, 23/8/2017, will be the first day of Dhul- Hijjah.

Dear beloved Brothers and Sisters, are there the best days in this world?

Yes!! The Best Ten days of Dhul Haj are the best ten days in the world. It starts from 23rd August, insha'Allah.

Please plan for those 10 days.

Plan what good deeds you will perform on these days.

If you are not careful, those days will run out and you won't even know. If you fail to plan, then you plan to fail.

It is the best 10 days to do business with Allah [SWT].

Grab as much rewards as possible - by doing good deeds, because any good deed "on these 10 days there is a reward better than fighting in the cause of Allah".

Below are some suggestions of some good deeds.
1. Give love to your parents, if you still have them. Make good provisions for them with a smile on your face. Make them feel special, just as they used to do when you were a kid.

2. Be careful with and dutiful to your parents - one major sin after shirk is being undutiful to parents.

3. Go out of your way to provide for "dabah" e.g. birds and other animals with water and grains.

4. Distrbute water or food to other fasting Muslims in the masjids or in your parish. You can also distribute cold satchet of water to those working under the sun - like laborers.

5. Observe congregational salat (prayer) and try to be in the first row.

6. Make sure that throughout these days you avoid back biting and slandering.

7. Try to fast all 9 days, everyday you fast is like 70 years away from Jahanam. And it will help you stay away from haram things as well.

8. If you cannot make 10 days, then fast at least on the day of Arafah. It wipes 2 years of sins.

9. On the day of Arafah, recite the dua most beloved to Allah: "Laa ilaha ill allahu, wahdahu laa sharikalahu, lahul mulku walahul hamdu yuhyi wayumitu wahuwa ala kullishaiin qadeer".

10. Give lots of sadaqa within the 10 days.

Read as much Qur'an as possible, and try to catch some of the meaning.


If you just want to listen to audio then try

11. Stay away from music and video songs and all that filth found on the web.

12. Don't waste your time on Facebook posts, etc,, it eats your time like the disease that eats healthy cells in the body.

13. Do da'wa and guide the non-Muslim brothers to the truth.

14. Visit the sick - if you don't know anyone, just visit the hospital, where many are waiting in the hospital wards wishing for someone to just give a smile. And your asking about them will make their day.

15. Do as much adhkar as you can.

Tell someone about this or simply forward this to all you know, as most people don't know about these days or are in ignorance concerning it, or are busy with unimportant things.

Rasul Allah Sallallahu alaihi wasallam said, "these are the best days in our dunya" and, insha'Allah, best days in aakhirah.

I ask Allah to bless those who feel concerned about this message.

The day of Arafa is on Thursday 31/8/2017 and Friday 1/9/2017 is the day of Eid Ul-Adha, Insha'Allah.

May Allah accept our dua', accept our good deeds, forgive our transgressions protect all Islamic countries and ease the suffering of all peoples around the globe, Aamiin!
