Al salaamo Alekum Brothers and Sisters
The first ten days of Dhu’l-Hijjah Allah has favoured them over other days. Therefore, take the chance to do more righteous deeds during theses days.
It was narrated from Ibn ‘Abbaas (may Allah be pleased with him) that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: “There are no days on which righteous deeds are more beloved to Allah than these ten days.” They said: “Not even jihad for the sake of Allah?” He said: “Not even jihad for the sake of Allah, unless a man goes out himself for jihad taking his wealth with him and does not come back with anything.” Narrated by al-Bukhaari
It is recommended to do the following as the prophet peace be upon him encouraged us to do during the first ten days of Dhu’l-Hijjah,
1- Fasting the first nine days of Dhu’l-Hijjah.
2- Reciting tahmeed, tahleel and takbeer a great deal
Takbeer (saying Allaahu akbar (Allaah is most great)), tahmeed (saying al-hamdu Lillah (praise be to Allah)), tahleel (saying Laa ilaaha ill-Allah (There is no god but Allah)) and tasbeeh (saying Subhaan-Allah (Glory be to Allah)), saying these words out loud in the mosques, homes, streets and every place in which it is permissible to remember Allah, to perform this act of worship openly and proclaim the greatness of Allah.
For women in low voice.
3- Doing Hajj and ‘Umrah if possible.
4- Udhiyah (sacrifice)
