Woh, time flies. I’ve been blogging for nearly 3 years. My first posts were right before Dhul Hijja 1427, and now here we are, only days away from Dhul Hijja 1430. These are indeed mubarak days forthcoming, and I would be willing to bet (if that were kosher, er halal) that we tend to neglect them. Do not neglect the first 10 days of this coming month, praise your Lord often, fast and make abundant dua for those who are about to make the journey of a lifetime.
Ibn `Abbas (ra) reported that the Prophet (saws) said: “There are no days in which righteous deeds are more beloved to Allah than these ten days.” The people asked, “Not even jihad for the sake of Allah?” He said, “Not even jihad for the sake of Allah, 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.” (Al-Bukhari)
