ON THE IMPORTANCE OF DHUL HIJJAH
The first 10 days of Dhul-Hijjah and in specific the Day of 'Arafah are very important in our tradition. The Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessing of Allah be upon him, has said about these days "There are no days in which good works are more beloved to Allah than these days." (meaning the first ten days of Dhul Hijjah.) The Companions asked, "Not even jihad in the path of Allah, O Messenger of Allah?" He said, "Not even jihad in the path of Allah, except for the one who goes forth with his person and wealth and does not return with any of it." (Bukhari and others)
