Virtues and deeds of the first 10 days of Dhul Hijjah

Bismillahir Rahmani Rahim, today’s topic of discussion is the virtues and deeds of the month of Dhul Hijjah and how many fasts of the month of Zilhajj.

Virtues of the first decade of the month of Dhul Hijjah

The first ten days of the month of Dhul Hijjah are among the most prestigious and virtuous days in Islam. There are many sayings in the Holy Quran and Hadith about its dignity. Some verses and hadiths related to this are mentioned below-

(1) Allah Rabbul Alamin has sworn by these days and nights in the Holy Qur’an. We know that when Allah Ta’ala swears something, it bears proof of its importance and dignity. He suggested—

Oath of Fajr and ten nights.

Surah Fajr: 1-2

Sahabi Ibn Abbas RA, Ibn Zubair and Mujahid RA. Many Mufassirs have said that this verse refers to the first ten nights of the month of Dhul Hijjah. Ibn Kasir Rah. He said – this view is pure. (Tafseer Ibn Kasir).

Prophet Karim s. There is no word on the explanation of these ten nights.

(2) Rasulullah SAW. He said: The first ten days of Dhul Hijjah are the best in the world. There are many hadiths about this. Some of which are highlighted-

Sahabi Ibn Abbas RA. Narrated from, Rasulullah SAW. He said: There is no good deed more beloved to Allah than doing good deeds in the first ten days of the month of Dhul Hijjah. They asked, O Messenger of God! Jihad in the way of Allah is not dearer than that?

Rasulullah s.a.w. He said: No, not Jihad in the way of Allah. However, it is different for the person who went out for Jihad in the form of Allah with his life and wealth and then nothing of his life and wealth came back.

Bukhari- 969, Tirmidhi- 757

Abdullah Ibn Umar RA. Narrated by the Prophet. He said: There is no deed dearer and greater to Allah Rabbul Alamin than performing (good) deeds in these ten days. Recite Tahlil (La-Ilaha Illallah), Takbeer (Allahu Akbar), and Tahmid (Al-Hamdulillah) more during this time.

Ahmad-132, the hadith is Sahih

There is no better day than the first ten days of Dhul Hijjah. The narrator said, a person said, O Messenger of Allah! These ten days (Amal Saleh) is better, or the preparation of Jihad in the way of Allah is better? He said It (Amal) is better than preparation for Jihad in the way of Allah.

Ibn Hibban: 3853

The meaning of these three hadiths is that each of these ten days is the best among the holy days of the year. For example, any Friday within these ten days is considered better than any other Friday.

(3) Messenger of God. He encouraged his Ummah to do good deeds on these days. His enthusiasm proves the virtue of this time.
(4) Nabi Karim s. On these days he ordered to read more Tahleel and Takbeer. As discussed above in the hadith of Ibn Abbas. Allah Rabbul Alamin says:

So that they may attend their auspicious places and remember the name of Allah on appointed days over what He has given them as sustenance from the four-footed animals.

Surah Hajj: 28

Imam Bukhari rah about which days are meant by specific ‘days’ in this verse. said-

Ibn Abbas RA. Said: ‘The first ten days of the month of Dhul Hijjah are meant by certain days.

Sahih al-Bukhari, Eid chapter

(5) The first decade of the month of Dhul Hijjah includes the days of Arafah and Qurbani. And these two days have great dignity. As mentioned in the hadith –

Ayesha. Narrated that Rasulullah s.a.w. Said: On the day of Arafa, Allah Rabbul Alamin frees so many of His servants from Hell that He does not on any other day. He approached the servants on this day and boasted about them to the angels and said – Can you tell me what these servants of mine want from me?


Arafah (the ninth day of Dhul Hijjah) is a day of forgiveness and redemption. Fasting on this day counts as expiation for two years of sins. As mentioned in the hadith –

Companion Abu Qatada RA. Narrated by Rasulullah s.a.w. Said: The fast of the day of Arafah is accepted by Allah Rabbul Alamin as an expiation for the sins of the past and future years.


However, on this day of Arafat, the pilgrims staying at the Maidan of Arafat will not fast. Hadith about the virtues of the day of sacrifice:

Sahabi Abdullah Ibn Kurta. Narrated that Rasulullah s.a.w. He said: The best days in the sight of Allah Ta’ala are the days of Qurbani and then the days of standing in Mina after the Qurbani.

Abu Dawud-1765, the hadith is Sahih

(6) These days of the first decade of the month of Dhul Hijjah are of such dignity that Salat, Sawm, Sadaqah, Hajj, and Qurbani are performed on these days. No other day is found in which so many important good deeds are combined.

A question: Are the last ten days of Ramadan are more virtuous or the first ten days of the month of Dhul Hijjah are more virtuous?

There is no difference of opinion about the first ten days of the month of Dhul Hijjah being more meritorious. Karan, there are numerous documents in this regard. However, there is room for disagreement about the virtues of the night. That is, the nights of the last decade of Ramadan are more virtuous or the nights of the first decade of Hajj are more virtuous?

The purest opinion is that the nights of the last ten days of Ramadan are more prestigious in terms of virtue. And in terms of days, the first ten days of the month of Zilhajj have more status.

Ibn Rajab. Said: When the night is mentioned then the days are counted between it. Thus, when the day is mentioned its nights are included in it—that is the rule. In this case, what the Ulama of the last era has said can be considered final. Thus, the days of the first ten days of Zilhajj are more prestigious than the days of the last ten days of Ramadan. And Lailatul Qadr in the last decade of Ramadan is the most prestigious.

Ibn al-Qayyim. In this case, he said with a beautiful explanation: The nights of the last decade of Ramadan are the most virtuous. Because it has Lailatul Qadr. On the other hand, the days of the first ten days of the month of Zilhajj are more meritorious, because these days include the days of Tarbiyah, the days of Arafah, and the days of sacrifice.

Jadul Maad: Ibn al-Qayyim

The period of the first decade of the month of Zilhajj

Repent sincerely

Repentance means returning or going back. Repentance is turning away from the words and deeds that Allah dislikes to the words and deeds that Allah likes—whether these deeds are done in public or secret. At the same time, one should repent from such actions of the past, abandon the actions and make a firm determination not to do such actions again. It is also necessary to resolve that as well as doing what Allah Ta’ala likes, I will also avoid His forbidden deeds.

Whenever a sinful act is committed a Muslim must repent from it immediately. Because he does not know when he will die and how long he will live. Remember, one sin opens the door to another sin. If you do not repent, then the number of sins increases. And the punishment of sin increases as time goes on. In more dignified or virtuous times the punishment for sin is greater. First is the punishment for sin and second is the punishment for insulting and underestimating the time full of virtues.

Imam Nawabi. Said: It is obligatory upon a Muslim to repent of all the sins he has committed. Even if he repents from one type of sin, his repentance will be valid. However, repentance for other sins will remain his responsibility. Many verses of the Qur’an, several hadiths, and ijma bear evidence that repentance is obligatory for the Ummah.

Nuzhatul Muttakin Sharhu Riyadus Salehin

Allah Rabbul Alamin says:

O believers! Repent to Allah – pure repentance; Perhaps your Lord will forgive your evil deeds and admit you to Paradise under whose feet rivers flow. On that day Allah will not shame the Prophet and his believing companions, their light will shine before them and to the south. They will say, O our Lord! Complete our light and forgive us, surely You are the All-Powerful.

Surah Tahreem: 8

Ibn Qayyim. Said: True repentance (Tawaba Nachuha) is the name of the sum of three things.

First: To repent from all kinds of sins. In order not to do so, I repented from a few sins, I left one or two, thinking that I would repent after a few more days. Doing so will be repentance, but it will not be accepted as repentance – the repentance that Allah Ta’ala has commanded in the above verse.

Second: One must honestly resolve to renounce sin completely. It should not happen that I repented and said to myself, I don’t know if I can persist in this repentance or not.

Third: Repentance should be done fearing Allah and seeking His pleasure. There will be no motive other than the pleasure of Allah.

Of course, along with this repentance, we should continuously ask for forgiveness from Allah Ta’ala and remove all sins or sins from ourselves. Only then can it be accepted as sincere repentance.

Performing Hajj and Umrah

Hajj is one of the five pillars of Islam. Allah Rabbul Alamin says:

Among the people who can afford to go there, he must perform Hajj to that house for the sake of Allah. And whoever rejects, let him know that Allah is not the watcher of the world.

Surah Al-Imran: 97

It is mentioned in the hadith –

Abdullah Ibn Umar RA. Narrated that the Prophet s.a.w. Said: Islam is founded on five things. Proclaiming that there is no true god but Allah and Muhammad s.a.w. Messenger of Allah, establish prayer, pay zakat, perform Hajj, and observe fasting in Ramadan.

Bukhari – 8 Muslim – 16

Therefore, Hajj is obligatory upon those who are able. But what is the command to do Umrah? Is it wajib or sunnah? There are two views on this. The pure view is that performing Umrah is wajib. As mentioned in the hadith:

Islam is to bear witness that there is no true god but Allah and Muhammad s.a.w. Allah’s Messenger He should perform Salat, pay Zakat, perform Hajj and Umrah, and perform ghusl after Janabat (intercourse, sexual desire, ejaculation, etc.), complete ablution, and fast.

Ibn Khuzaima, the hadith is Sahih on the condition of Muslim

This hadith proves that performing Umrah is wajib. There is more in the hadith –

Ayesha. Narrated, he said: I asked Rasulullah SAW whether there is an order for Jihad for girls. He said yes, their duty is a jihad that does not involve fighting. That is Hajj and Umrah.

Ibn Majah – 3910, the hadith is Sahih

This hadith proves that Umrah is a wajib for girls. While Umrah is wajib for women, it is obligatory for men.

Hajj is obligatory once in a lifetime. It is mentioned in the hadith:-

Ibn Abbas RA. Narrated from Companion Aqra Ibn Habis RA. The Prophet asked Karim S., O Messenger! Hajj is not only once every year? He said: Hajj is obligatory only once. So whoever performed Hajj more than once is accepted as Nafal.

Abu Dawud-1721, the hadith is sahih

Prophet Karim s. He encouraged the Ummah for these two dignified acts of worship. These two acts of worship include the purification of the soul from the evil effects of sin, through which people can be loved and respected by Allah Rabbul Alamin. So the Prophet s.a.w. Said:-

A person who performs Hajj without committing any indecency or committing sin is as innocent as the day his mother gave birth to him. 

Bukhari-1449, Muslim- 1350

There is more in the hadith –

Abu Huraira RA. Narrated that the Prophet s.a.w. Said:- From one Umrah to another Umrah is accepted as expiation for the sins in between. And the reward of Hajj without contamination is Paradise.

Bukhari, No. 1683, Muslim, No. 1349

Hajj Mabrur or Hajj without defilement is a Hajj whose Ahqams have been fully performed and no sin or obscenity has been committed during the Hajj and the Hajj was full of good deeds and good deeds.

Fathul Bari: Ibn Hajar

A Muslim must perform the Hajj as soon as possible. Because the Prophet s.a.w. Said:-

Whoever wishes to perform Hajj should perform it as soon as possible. He may be afflicted with a disease or his vehicle may be lost or some necessity may arise which will prevent him from performing Hajj.

Ibn Majah-2883, Ahmad-355, the hadith is Sahih

It is mustahab for one who has performed Hajj and Umrah once, to perform it again and again. Because there are great rewards and rewards in these two prayers. Rasool Karim s. Said:-

Try to perform Hajj and Umrah repeatedly. Because these two acts of worship remove poverty as fire removes rust from iron and gold and silver.

Ahmad – 323, Tirmidhi – 810, Nasa’i – 2467, Ibn Majah – 2883, the hadith is Sahih.

To be diligent in the fulfillment of regular duties and obligations

That is, performing duties and obligations in a timely and perfect manner. The way the beloved Prophet s. To perform all worship according to its Sunnah, Mustahab, and Adab. It is mentioned in the hadith –

Abu Huraira RA. Narrated from he said, Rasulullah s.a.w. He said: Allah Ta’ala says, I declare war on the one who has enmity with any of My saints. My servant cannot gain nearness to Me through obligatory worship. My servant always attains My nearness through Nafal Ibadah. Even at last, I have made him so dear to me that I am his ear by which he hears. I become his eyes, through which he sees. And I become his hand, with which he holds. I become his feet, by which he walks.

If he asks me for anything, I certainly give it to him. And if he seeks refuge with me, I will certainly shelter him. I do not hesitate to do anything I want to do, as much as I hesitate to take the life of a believing servant. He hates death while I hate his life.


Many issues have been discussed in Qudsi in this hadith. One of them is that obligatory worship is dearest to Allah. And nafl (that which is not obligatory) worship is a means of attaining nearness to Allah. If the obligatory and nafl acts of worship are performed carefully and properly, one can attain the closeness to Allah Rabbul Alamin that He mentioned in this hadith. Hafez Ibn Hajar explained this hadith about how we can be careful in his worship. Says: Obeying one’s duties with care means: obeying Allah’s orders, respecting His orders, giving dignity, bowing one’s head in respect to the orders, showing respect for God’s Lordship, and accepting His servitude in heart and soul. If you perform the deeds carefully in this way, you can achieve the nearness to Allah that He said in this hadith.

Fulfilling one’s obligations carefully according to the rules is a quality that Allah Almighty has praised in His Word. said-

And those who are diligent in their prayers.

Surah Marij: 34

So come! We try to get more rewards and rewards by practicing the program of gaining love and closeness to Allah on these holy days.

Do more good deeds

Good deeds are dear to Allah Rabbul Alamin in all places and at all times. However, in these blessed days, the status and reward of good deeds are much higher.

Those who got the opportunity to perform Hajj during these days are lucky – no doubt. And those who could not go to Hajj should honor these blessed days by praying more and more, reciting the Qur’an, Zikr, supplications, charity, behaving well with parents, deepening relations with relatives, and doing good deeds. Enjoining and forbidding wrongdoing and performing good deeds etc. As discussed earlier in the hadith, one can gain the special love of Allah Rabbul Alamin by doing more and more good deeds.

Zikr of Allah Ta’ala

During these days dhikr has a special status among other acts, as mentioned in the hadith: —

Abdullah Ibn Umar RA. Narrated from, the Prophet s.a.w. He said: There is no deed dearer and greater to Allah Rabbul Alamin than performing (good) deeds in these ten days. At this time, recite Tahleel (La-Ilaha Illallah), Takbeer (Allahu Akbar), and Tahmeed (Al-Hamdulillah) more.

Ahmad-132, the hadith is Sahih

Allah Rabbul Alamin says:-

So that they may attend their auspicious places and remember the name of Allah on appointed days over what He has given them as sustenance from the four-footed animals. 

Surah Hajj: 28

Most of the scholars said: In this verse, the first ten days of Zilhajj are indicated as specific days. At this time, the servants of Allah praise Allah more and more, describe His holiness, thank Him for His blessings, and recite Allah’s name, and Takbeer while sacrificing animals.

Reciting Takbeer aloud

It is Sunnah to recite Takbeer on the 11th, 12th, and 13th of these days to declare the greatness of Allah Rabbul Alamin. This Takbeer will be recited openly and loudly everywhere including mosques, houses, streets, and markets. But girls will recite in a low-pitched voice. Takbeer is:

لله أكبر الله أكبر لا إله إلا الله، والله أكبر الله أكبر ولله الحمد

Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, La ilaha illallahu, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, Walillahil Hamd.

Regarding this Takbeer of the month of Zilhajj, scholars say: There are generally two ways of performing this Takbeer.

(One) At-Takbeerul Mutlaq or the Takbeer that can be recited at all times

This Takbeer can be recited at any time of the day or night from the beginning of the month of Zilhajj to the 13th of Zilhaj.

Today this Sunnah is considered abandoned in our society. Its action is not seen. So we should promote this Sunnah. This will earn the reward of saying Takbeer and at the same time the reward of reviving a settled Sunnah. It is mentioned in the hadith:-

Rasulullah s.a.w. He said: Whoever revives the sunnah that has died after my death, he will receive the reward of those who practice this sunnah, and the reward of those who practice it will not be reduced in any way.

Tirmidhi-677 and Ibn Majah-209, the hadith is Sahih

Sahabi Abdullah Ibn Umar RA. And Abu Huraira RA. During the first ten days of the month of Zilhaj, he used to go to the bazaar and recite the Takbeer, and the people followed him and recited the Takbeer. 

Bukhari, Eid chapter

In other words, these two beloved companions of the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) used to remind people about reading Takbeer.

It should be remembered that reciting Takbeer aloud is Sunnah. But not everyone will recite the Takbeer with the Jamaat in the same voice. Because it is heresy. As one said: ‘Allahu Akbar’. All said: ‘Allahu Akbar’. Because Rasulullah s.a.w. Nor did Sahaba Keram ever do that. But everyone can recite Takbeer in different voices at the same time. However, if this form is used to teach someone Takbeer, it is different.

We must be careful that we do not indulge in Bidah while observing any Sunnah. Messenger of Allah We have to do the same as his Companions performed the Sunnahs. This is the correct following of the Messenger of Allah. If we introduce a slightly different method while performing that Sunnah, then it will be regarded as Bid’ah. It is mentioned in the hadith –

Rasool Karim s. Said: He who does what is not commanded by Us (Islam) is rejected. 

Bukhari-2698, Muslim-1718

(2) At-Takbeerul Muqayyad or Takbeer of special times

That is the Takbeer that is recited after the prayer. This second type of Takbeer which is recited after the prayer is to be recited from the ninth day of the month of Zil-Hajj to the last day of Mina i.e. the 13th.


Hafsa Ra. Narrated that the Prophet s.a.w. He never abandoned the four precepts. They are the fast of Ashura, the ten-day fast of Zil-Hajj, the three-day fast of every month, and the two rakat prayers before Zohr.

Ahmad – 287/6, Sahih Sunan Abu Dawud – 2106, Sahih Sunan Nasa’i – 2236

In this hadith, the fasting of the ten days of Zilhajj means the ninth day and the fasting before it. Because it is not permissible to fast on the tenth day, i.e. the day of Eid. Imam Nawabi. Said: Fasting on the ninth date is a very important mustahabb act. On the other hand, there is a saying of Ayesha that she said: I did not see the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) fasting during the ten days of Zilhaj.

About this saying, Imam Nawabi. Said Ayesha RA. It has an explanation of this saying. The explanation is that Rasulullah s.a.w. did not observe the fast due to some difficulty or he observed the fast but Ayesha r.a. Didn’t see it.

According to the statement of Ayesha, there is no reason for the impermissibility of fasting during the first nine days of Zilhaj. Because the previously discussed hadith of Hafsa RA establishes a Musbit i.e. an act. And Ayesha’s statement makes an act nafi (forbidden). According to the principle of Hadith, that which proves the positive action) prevails over the negative. According to this rule, the hadith of Hafsa RA will be accepted for the period.

On the other hand Rasulle Karim s. He encouraged me to do all kinds of good deeds during these ten days and fasting is one of the good deeds. Rather, among the good deeds, fasting is an important and dignified deed in the sight of Allah. It is mentioned in the hadith –

Companion Abu Umama RA. Narrated from, he said, I said: O Messenger of Allah. Command me a deed that only I shall be entitled to receive from You. Messenger of Allah He said: You will fast. And there is no precedent for this.

Hakeem and Sahih Sunan Nasa’i-2100

However, in another narration of Nasa’i, Abu Umama RA. He said: Instruct me about a deed. He said: observe the fast. There is no equivalent practice. He said again: Instruct me about a deed and the Prophet s.a.w. He gave the same answer.

Through this hadith, we can understand that fasting is an act of great dignity and is dear to Allah.

There is an idea among common people, especially women in some countries, that it is Sunnah to fast on the 7th, 8th, and 9th of the month of Zilhaj. But there is no evidence or basis for specifying these three days for fasting. Fasting can be observed on any day or full nine days from the 1st to the 9th of Zilhajj. However, there are specific instructions regarding fasting on the day of Arafah i.e. the ninth day of the month of Zilhaj.

Especially fasting on the day of Arafah

Companion Abu Qatada RA. Narrated by Rasulullah s.a.w. Said: Fasting on the day of Arafah is accepted by Allah Rabbul Alamin as an expiation for the sins of the past and future years.


However, those who are not performing Hajj will observe the fast on the ninth day of the month of Zilhaj. Fasting is not permissible for those who are busy performing Hajj on this day. Because there is a hadith:-

Imam Ahmad narrates from Ikrama that he said: I met Abu Huraira RA at his house and asked him what the ruling on fasting on the day of Arafat (on the ninth day of Zilhaj) for a person standing (performing Hajj) in the Maidan of Arafat is? He said: Messenger of Allah. On the day of Arafah, one who stays at Arafah is prohibited from fasting.

Musnad Ahmad- 204/2, Hakeem 465/1, Ahmad Shaq said this hadith is sahih.

It is in the hadith of Muslim Sharif: He ate and drank while staying at Arafa on the day of Arafa. People staying with him saw it.

Muslim 1123, 1124

to sacrifice

On the tenth day of these days, it is Muakkadah in the Sunnah to sacrifice an able-bodied person. Allah Rabbul Alamin ordered His Prophet to sacrifice. said:

Pray and sacrifice to your Lord.

Surah Kawsar: 2

In this verse, Eid prayers are ordered and animals are ordered to be sacrificed. So Rasulullah s.a.w. He was very careful about sacrifices throughout his life. It is mentioned in the hadith:-

Sahabi Ibn Umar RA. Said: Prophet Karim s. Stayed in Madinah for ten years, and performed Qurbani every year.

Ahmad and Tirmidhi, Ahmad called the hadith Sahih

Do not cut nails-hair etc

It is mustahabb for those who intend to perform Qurbani to refrain from cutting nails, hair, etc. from the first of the month of Zilhajj until Qurbani. Rasulullah (SAW) said, When the first decade of Zilhajj begins, whoever among you sacrifices should not cut his hair and nails.

Muslim, Hadith: 1977

Eid prayer

It is muakkadah in the Sunnah. One view is that the Eid prayer is obligatory. This is more powerful.

A Muslim must participate in the Eid prayer with interest, listen attentively to the sermon, and think about the purpose of the Eid observance. It should be remembered that the day of Eid is a day of expressing gratitude to Allah Ta’ala and doing righteous deeds. This day should not be turned into a day of iniquity such as music, drinking, or indecent entertainment. Because many times these actions turn out to be a waste of good deeds.

Virtues of Ayyam e Tashreek

Ayame-Tashreek is the three days following the sacrifice. That is, the eleventh, twelfth, and thirteenth dates of the month of Zilhajj are called Ayame-Tashreek. The word Tashreek means drying. These days are named ‘Ayame-Tashreek’ or ‘Meat Drying Days’ because people allow the meat to dry on these days.

All the points that have come up regarding the virtues of these days are discussed below:-

(1) These days are the days of worship, dhikr of Allah Almighty, and thanksgiving. Allah Ta’ala says:-

You will remember Allah on appointed days.

Surah Baqarah: 203

In the explanation of this verse, Imam Bukhari. Says:-

Ibn Abbas RA. Narrated by him, he said – Ayame-Tashreek is understood as certain days.

Fathul Bari, Eid chapter

Imam Qurtubi. He said: There is no disagreement in accepting this interpretation of Ibn Abbas.

Qurtubi of Tafseer

And basically, these days are the days of staying in Mina during the Hajj season. Because it is mentioned in the hadith –

The stay in Mina is three days. There is no sin on him if he comes quickly in two days. And if anyone delays, there is no sin on him.

Abu Dawud- 1949, the hadith is Sahih

It is mentioned in the hadith –

It is narrated from Nabeesha Hazali that Rasool Kareem s. Said: Tashreek is a day of eating and drinking and remembrance of Allah Rabbul Alamin.

Muslim – 1141

Imam Ibn Rajab. He said excellent things in the explanation of this hadith. He said: In Ayyam Tashreek, there are many days in which the blessings of the body and comfort of the believers have been brought together. Eating and drinking is the food of the body and dhikr and thanksgiving of Allah is the food of the heart. And this is how the fullness of blessings was attained in these days.

Latayeful Maaref: Ibn Rajab r. P-504

(2) The days of Tashreek are counted as Eid days. As mentioned in the hadith –

Sahabi Uqba Ibn Amer RA. Narrated that the Prophet s.a.w. Said: The day of Arafah, the day of Qurbani, and the days of Minar (three days after Qurbani) are Eid days for our followers of Islam.

Abu Dawud-2413, the hadith is Sahih

(3) These days are attached to the first decade of the month of Zilhaj. That decade is very virtuous. So for this reason also it has enough status.
(4) In these days some acts of Hajj are performed. For this reason, these days have virtues.

To be done in Ayyam e Tashreek

These days are the days of worship, Zikr as well as the days of rejoicing. Such as Rasulullah s.a.w. He said: Tashriq is a day of eating and drinking and remembrance of Allah.


During these days, thanksgiving and zikr are done by enjoying the blessings of Allah Rabbul Alamin. There are several methods of performing Zikr in the hadith.

(1) Reciting Takbeer after Salat. And always reciting Takbeer in addition to Salat. By saying this Takbeer we can prove that these days are the days of remembrance of Allah. And this dhikr instruction is for the pilgrims as well as for those who are not performing Hajj.

(2) Reciting the name of Allah Ta’ala and Takbeer while slaughtering animals for sacrifice and Hajj.

(3) Reciting Allah Ta’ala at the beginning and end of eating and drinking. And it is always ordered to do it, but it is given more importance these days. Thus being careful about all work and morning and evening zikrs.

(4) Reciting Takbeer of Allah while throwing pebbles while performing Hajj.

(5) In addition to these, dhikr of Allah at any time and in any condition.
