What are these 10 nights

The Ten Nights of Dhul Hijjah mark a sacred period in the Islamic calendar, occurring during the final month and culminating in the celebration of Eid al-Adha. These nights hold immense significance, particularly the last ten days, as they encompass the apex of devotion, reflection, and spiritual significance for Muslims worldwide. Among these, the ninth day, known as the Day of Arafah, is esteemed for the pilgrimage to Mount Arafat during Hajj, while the tenth day is celebrated as Eid al-Adha, commemorating Abraham’s willingness to sacrifice his son as an act of obedience to God.

Why they're important

The significance of the Ten Nights of Dhul Hijjah lies in their spiritual potency and the convergence of pivotal events in Islamic history.

The Prophet (saw) said, ‘There are no days in which righteous deeds are more beloved to Allah than in these (ten) days’. (Abu Dawud).

How to participate arafah

Participating in Arafah, especially for those not performing Hajj, involves engaging in heightened acts of worship, supplication, and seeking forgiveness. Observing fasting on the Day of Arafah (the 9th day of Dhul Hijjah) is highly recommended for those not undertaking the pilgrimage. Spending the day in prayer, recitation of the Quran, making du’a (supplications), and seeking forgiveness are encouraged practices. It’s an opportune time to reflect on one’s deeds, seek spiritual elevation, and embrace the essence of this significant day. Additionally, acts of charity and kindness towards others are highly recommended, contributing to the overall spiritual significance of the day.

Why doing charity is good during these days

Charity during these days aligns with the spirit of generosity and goodwill, magnifying the rewards of good deeds. It reflects the essence of selflessness and compassion, amplifying the blessings received during this spiritually significant period.

“There is no day in which Allah sets free more souls from the fire of hell than on the day of ‘Arafat. And on that day Allah draws near to the earth and by way of exhibiting His Pride remarks to the angels, ‘What is the desire of these (servants of mine)?” (Muslim)
