As Salamu Alaykoum dear brothers and sisters!

As you may all be aware by now we have entered into the blessed days of Dhul-Hijjah, otherwise known as the month of Hajj.

According to our beloved Prophet Muhamamad (saaw) the first ten days of this month are a special time for devotion. It is during these days that preparations are carried out by the hujjaj (pilgrims), it is also the time in which most of the actual pilgrimage rites occur. In particular, the 9th day of the month marks the Day of Arafat, and the 10th day of the month marks the Eid al-Adha.

Even for those who are not traveling for the pilgrimage, this is a special time to remember Allah and spend extra time in devotion and good deeds.
