Zilhaj in the mirror of the Quran

In the first decade of Zillhaj, Allah Ta’ala swore on these days in the greatness, greatness and superiority. He said, ‘Swearing in the morning. By oath of the night 10. ‘(Surah: Fajr, verse: 1-2)

Here are the 10 nights that have been said, through this, the first decade of Zilhaj has been mentioned. (Tafsir Ibn Kathir, Fourth volume, p. 535)

Zillhaz is one of the four holy and honorable months. Allah says, ‘Surely, in the ruling and counting of Allah, 12 months, the heavens and the earth are created from the day of creation.

In the narration of Hadith, Zillhaz’s Virtue

According to Hazrat Ibn Abbas, the Prophet (peace be upon him) said, “The time of Allah’s Day is better than any other good deeds of the first decade of Zilhaj.” Sahabara asked, O Messenger of Allah! Jihad in God’s way is not even better than this decade? The Prophet (peace be upon him) said, “Jihad is not even better than the way of Allah; But except the person who took part in jihad with his belongings and did not come back with anything. “(Abu Daud, Hadith: 2438, Bukhari, Hadith: 969)

In another hadith, the Prophet (peace be upon him) said, ‘Allah has no more than any other day’s work than the good deeds of the first decade of Zilhaj. One day fasting is equivalent to one year’s fasting and the worship of one night is worshiped by the devotees. “(Tirmidhi: 1/158)

The first decade of Zillhaz

Fast: Fasting is one of the best things to do. So it is very rewarding to keep the fast fast in these days. Hoonaida bin Khaled from his wife, he narrated from a wife of Rasulullah (pbuh), that the Prophet (peace be upon him) used to fast on the 9th of Zilhaj, on the day of Ashura and for three days of every month. (Ahmad, Abu Da’ud and Nasai )

Fasting on Arafa’s Day: It is very important to fast on Arafa’s day. As it is proved from the Messenger of Allah, he said about the fasting day of ‘Arafah,’ I am hopeful to Allah, this will be the expiation of sins of the previous year and the next one year. ‘(Muslim)

However fasting is not a mustahab for the pilgrims staying in Arafah. Because the Prophet (peace be upon him) stayed in Arafah without fasting.

Performing Hajj and Umrah: In Hajj and Umrah, the two are the greatest act of the decade. The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, ‘The expiation of the sins of the Umrah and the other between the Umrah and the other is only Paradise.’ (Bukhari, Hadith: 1773; Muslim, Hadith: 3355)

Reading Takbir and Tasbihah: Sunnat reading Takbir (Allahu Akbar), Tahmid (Alhamdu Lillah), Tahlil (La ilaha Ilallah) and Tasbih (Subhan Allah) in these days. In these days, Zikir – today has special significance. The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said, “There is no more favorite and noble act of Allah than performing righteous deeds this 10 days. So you read the Tahlil (La ilaha illallah), takbir (Allahu Akbar) and Tahmid (al-Hamdulillah) more than this time. “(Baihaqi, Shuabul Iman, Hadith: 3474)

After the rise of Zilhaj’s moon: After the light of the Zillhaj, the hair, mouches, nails, balsam and other places should not cut hair or fur. According to Hazrat Umm Salamah, the Prophet (peace be upon him) said, ‘Whoever sees the light of the Zilhaj and wants to sacrifice, do not cut hair or nails until he sacrifices it.’ Muslim, hadith: 3656)

This work is Mustahab, not Wajib. The jurists say that before halting the nails, hair, shouldache, etc., it is the wisdom to be reconciled with the pilgrims.

Ibn al-Qayyim (RA) said that this order has been given for sacrificing sacrificial animals as sacrifices for sacrifices of Allah.

Tabbir recitation of Tashrik: 9th of the month of Zillhaj, from the Fajr prayers to the 13th day of the prayer till the last 23 hours after the prayers, the reader must read Wajib.

It is obligatory for every adult male, female, mukim, traveler, villager, dude, congregation to worship, or to be lonely after the obligatory prayers – it is necessary to recite Tasrir at every time. (Fatwah Shami, Bahur Raik)

It is desirable to say that it is not more than one time. Because there is no reason to say more than one word in Islam. (Tahtabi, p. 294) The takbeer is tahirik-Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar, La ilaha illallahuallahu akbar Allahu akbar valilillaam Hamd.

Sacrificing of animals: On the tenth day of these days, the sacrifice of the Sunnat for a capable person is Sunayat Muayakkadah. Allah’s Messenger (peace be upon him) commanded to sacrifice his Prophet. It is said, ‘Pray for your Lord and sacrifice it.’ (Sura al-Kausar, verse: 2).
