The 10 Days of Dhul-Hijjah and Eid

Posted by admin on 22/11/2009

The Gifts of the Ten Days of Dhul-Hijjah

It has been said that Allah (Exalted is He) will bestow ten charismatic gifts upon anyone who treats these Ten Days of Dhul-Hijjah with all due honour and respect, namely: 

  1. Blessed grace -baraka in his earthly life.
  2. Increase in his property and wealth. 
  3. Safekeeping for his dependents. 
  4. Decrease of his misdeeds. 
  5. Multiplication of his good deeds. 
  6. Easing of his agonies-Sakarat in the throes of death. 
  7. Illumination of his darkness and gloom in the grave. 
  8. Favourable weighting of his balance at the Resurrection. 
  9. Salvation from the descending layers-darakat of Hell. 
  10. Promotion to the ascending levels-darajat of Paradise.

If someone makes a charitable donation-sadaqah to a needy person-Miskin, during these Ten Days, it will be as if he had presented charitable donations to all His Prophets -Anbiya and His Messengers-Rusul (peace be upon them).

If someone visits a sick person, it will be as if he had paid such visits to all the saints-awliya of Allah, and to all His spiritual deputies-Abdals.

If someone attends a funeral service-Janaza, it will be as if he had attended the funeral services of all His martyrs-shuhada.

If someone clothes a true believer-mu'min, Allah will clothe him from His store of fine garments.

If someone treats an orphan kindly, Allah (Exalted is He) will treat him kindly on the Day of Resurrection-Yawm al-Qiyama, beneath the shadow of His Heavenly Throne-‘Arsh.

If someone attends one of the sessions of religious learning-majalis al'ilm, it will be as if he had attended the sessions held by all of Allah's Prophets-Anbiya and Messengers-Rusul (peace be upon them).

Foward this link to your friends for if they perform these Ibaadah-Worships, you'll also benefit as Sadaqhah-Jariyah works just like Network Marketing once in motion you sit back and take rewards too! But for the Next world!
