"There is no deed that is better in the sight of Allah or more greatly rewarded than a good deed done in the (first) ten days of Dhul-Hijjah." (Narrated by Ibn 'Abbas [Bukhari Volume 2, Book 15, Hadith 86)

Alhamdulillah, the blessed season of Hajj, the great spiritual journey, is once again upon us. This is the time when we commemorate and reflect upon the great sacrifices of our Prophet Ibraheem عليه السلام and his family. To gain the most of these ten days, please read The Significance of the 10 Days of Dhul Hijjah

We take this opportunity to ask Allah سبحانه و تعالى to accept their Hajj, forgive them of their sins, make them strong believers, and return them safely to their families. Ameen
