From His infinite mercy, Allah has made certain periods of time superior to others. In these periods, He multiplies the rewards of good deeds and forgives abundant sins.

The first 10 days of Dhul Ḥijjah are amongst these special periods. Unlike Ramaḍān, this season of worship is often overlooked and neglected by many of us. The Messenger of Allah ﷺ however described these days as the best days in the sight of Allah (Ibn Ḥibbān). The subsequent three days are also of great significance: days of eating, drinking and remembering Allah.

‘The Best Days of Your Life’ is a short book compiled to help you make the most of these blessed days. The book gives a detailed explanation on:

  • The virtues of these blessed days
  • How to deepen your connection with Allah
  • The Day of ʿArafah
  • The significance of qurbānī
  • The Days of Tashrīq

We ask Allah to make this book is a means of cultivating an atmosphere of worship and dhikr in our homes and communities in the blessed month of Dhul Ḥijjah.
