The valley of Arafat and Mina are once again going to witness the resounding echoes of ‘Talbiyah’. The most enormous and collective of all Ibadaat, the ‘Hajj’ and ‘the month of Hajj- Dhul Hijjah’ is knocking our doors with the beautiful gift of the ten exalted days. Allah (S.W.T) has blessed us with another chance of spiritual restoration after the month of Ramadan, as stated by the Prophet (S.A.W):
“There are no days during which the righteous action is so pleasing to Allah than these days (i.e., the first ten days of Dhul-Hijjah).” He was asked: “O Messenger of Allah, not even Jihad in the Cause of Allah?” He (ﷺ) replied, “Not even Jihad in the Cause of Allah, except in case one goes forth with his life and his property and does not return with either of it.” [Al- Bukhari].
May Allah (S.W.T) make us take maximum benefit from these few ‘Appointed Days’.
