Special Programme, at Johannesburg on September 1, 2016


Dhul Hijjah is one of the four auspicious months in which the rewards for good deeds are multiplied. Furthermore Allah SWT takes an oath on the ten nights of Dhul Hijjah emphasising the importance of this time of the year. Nabi-e-Kareem ? mentioned that there is no time of the year in which the actions are more beloved and rewarded by Allah SWT than these ten days of Dhul Hijjah, not even Jihad in the path of Allah. The fast of each of these nine days is equivalent to one year of fasting and the ibadah of each night is the equivalent of the ibadah of Laylatul Qadr. In order to uphold the importance of these ten days Nabi-e-Kareem ? told the Sahabah to excessively engage in tasbeeh, the most superior and recommended Zikrullah for these days being the third Kalimah. The ninth Dhul Hijjah known as “Yawmul Arafah” has great significance even for those not in Hajj as the fast of this day secures forgiveness from Allah SWT for the sins of the past year and the future year. The least that should be done in these nights is to perform Esha and Fajr Salaah with jamaat. Even though we may not have the stamina or the spirituality of the Pious Elders some of whom would make Nafl i’tikaaf during these days, time should be spared for additional acts of ibadah such as Zikrullah, Tilawah of Quran, Istighfaar and dua. The night of Eid is a very great night, and there are many Sunnahs of the day of Eidhul Adha which should be practised. We should be personally involved in the act of Qurbani completing the sacrifice with fervour and zeal in order to keep the spirit of this great ibadah alive.
