    Ten Points for the First Ten days of Dhi Al-Hijjah



    1. The ten days is actually nine plus the day of Eid. It is called the first ten days of Dhul-Hijah, but only nine of it is for fasting as the tenth day is the beginning of eid. It is impermissible to fast on the day of Eid, this is a consensus amongst the people of knowledge.

    2. It is permissible to fast the first nine days of Dhul-Hijah with the last day being the day of Arafat for those not doing Hajj. The Prophet صلى الله عليه و سلم said in a hadith narrated by ibn Abbas رضي الله عنهما (in at-Tirimidhi); There arent any days that good deeds are more beloved to Allah than those done in these ten days.

    3. In these days, it is recommended that there is a lot of remembrance of Allah سبحان و تعالى - this is for all of the ten days.

    4. In these days, it is recommended that one makes takbir of Allah (saying Allahu akbar) - this is for all of the ten days.

    5. In these days, it is recommended to read the Quran as much as possible and give charity this is for all of the ten days.

    6. The ninth day is the day of Arafat. The Messenger of Allah said in an authentic narration; Verily on the day of Arafat there is expiation of sins for the year before and the year after, (narrated by Abi Qatada رضي الله عنه, reported in Sahih Muslim and At-Tirmidhi), so therefore it is a great day, so it is recommended to fast that day for those not doing Hajj. Fasting is only permissible for the first nine days as the tenth day is the day of Eid.

    7. Allah Tala said: That they may witness things that are of benefit to them (i.e. reward of Hajj in the Hereafter, and also some worldly gain from trade), and mention the name of Allah on appointed days (i.e. 10th, 11th, 12th, and 13th day of Dhul-Hijjah), over the beast of cattle that He has provided for them (for sacrifice). (Surah al-Hajj: 28). Ibn Abass رضي الله عنهما said: The appointed days are the days of Arafat(9th) ,an-Nahr(10th) and the days of Tashreeq (the 11th, 12th and 13th ).

    8. Whoever wishes to slaughter in these days it is not allowed to cut any hair from his body or his nails, but this does not apply to his family, only the head of the family who is doing the slaughtering.

    9. The ruling regarding slaughtering:

    a. An individual who slaughters from his own wealth on behalf of himself and his family - It is not permissible for this individual to shave any hair from his body, remove any part of his skin or cut his nails.

    b. An individual who slaughters from his own wealth for others e.g. he wishes to slaughter for his father or his mother - He too must not cut his hair, take from his skin or cut his nails.

    c. Somebody who wishes to slaughter with somebody else wealth, for somebody else .e.g. Somebody who has been trusted by somebody else to slaughter cattle for him - This individual is allowed to cut his hair, nails and skin etc.

    10. Eid Al-Adha are four days in total; the tenth (the day of Eid prayer) and the days of tashreeq (the eleventh , twelve and thirteenth days of Dhi Alhijah). It is impermissible to fast in these days for those not doing Hajj. The Messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه و سلم said: The days of Tashreeq are days for eating, drinking and remembering Allah عز و جل (naraated by Abi al Maleeh رضي الله عنه, reported in Sahih Al-Muslim). Allah subahanwataala said : And remember Allah during the appointed Days. (Surah Al-Baqarah: 203).

    و الحمد لله رب العالمين



    Taken from the works of Al-Imam Al-Baghawee, Al-Alaamah bin Baz and Al-Alaamah Ibn Uthaymeen, may Allah have mercy on them all and all the scholars of the Sunnah.
