"It is not their meat, nor their blood, that reaches Allah, It is their piety that reaches Allah" (22:37) The Prophet (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) says regarding the Qurbani:
“There is nothing dearer to Allah during the days of Qurbaani than the sacrificing of animals.
The sacrificed animal shall come on the Day of Judgement with its horn, hair, and hooves (to be weighed). The sacrifice is accepted by Allah before the blood reaches the ground.
Therefore sacrifice with an open and happy heart.”
(Tirmidhi V1 pp275, Ibne Maajah V1 pp226) Tip 3: Doing Qurbani is very easy nowadays: Doing Qurbani during the days of sacrifice is a means of getting closer to Allah and gaining immense rewards. Nowadays it is much easier for us to fulfill this sacred act by the mere click of a button over the internet where we can buy an animal to be sacrificed on the various established Muslim charity websites.
4. Doing more good deeds than usual:
The Prophet (Sallahu Alaihi Wassalam) said: "There are no days in which righteous deeds are more beloved to Allah than these ten days (Dhul Hijjah)." (Bukhari) Therefore we should increase the amount of good deeds we do in order to take advantage of this blessed time where good deeds are increased significantly. Tip 4: Complete all tasks beforehand & do not waste this precious time: Make arrangements to clear as many of your pending tasks as possible or make a plan for tackling them later. This way, one is free to worship during the 10 days and nights without being distracted by worldly tasks. We must make a firm intention that during these blessed 10 days, we will not take part in idle talk, watch TV, play computer games or spend time on the social media. There are 355 days in the year for all that
if you really cannot resist. This is just 10 days! There will be indeed an utter loss and regret for those of us who waste these blessed 10 days.
The following 7 deeds are amongst the best actions we can do during these blessed 10 days:
1. Reciting the Qur‟an abundantly:
Whoever reads a letter from the Book of Allah, he will have a reward. And that reward will be
multiplied by ten. I am not saying that “Alif, Laam, Meem” is a letter, rather I am saying that “Alif” is a letter, “laam” is a letter and “meem” is a letter.” So
increase your recitation of the
Qur‟an to gain these merits, and to gain the following merit as well.
(At-Tirmidhi) So if one letter of the Qur'an is equivalent to ten good deeds then imagine how much reward there is for reading each letter during these blessed 10 days which are said to be the best days
