Dhul Hijjah, is the twelfth and final month in the Islamic calendar. It is a very sacred month in the Islamic calendar, one in which the Hajj (Pilgrimage) takes place as well as the Festival of the Sacrifice.
“Dhul Hijjah” literally means “Possessor of the Pilgrimage” or “The Month of the Pilgrimage”. During this month Muslim pilgrims from all around the world congregate at Mecca to visit the Kaaba. The Hajj is performed on the eighth, ninth and the tenth of this month. Day of Arafah takes place on the ninth of the month and Eid Ul-Adha, the “Festival of the Sacrifice”, begins on the tenth day.
In this unprecedented year Muslims around the world have missed many rituals such as prayers in the Mosques, Taraweeh (Night praying during the month of Ramadhan) Friday prayers and perming Hajj. There will be no overseas Pilgrimage except for resident of Saudi Arabia due to COVID19 restrictions.
It is advised to fast during the 1st nine days of Dhul Hijjah and to perform or donate your sacrifice to the poor early when most needed.
Prophet Mohammed (PBUH) said in Sahih Ul Buthari:
“There are no days during which the righteous action is so pleasing to Allah than these days (i.e. the first ten days of Dhul Hijjah).
