| EID Al-ADHA ON TUESDAY, AUGUST 21st
Asalamualaikum Brothers & Sisters!
The crescent for Dhul-Ḥijjah has been sighted in Saudi Arabia. Hence, today is the 1st of Dhul-Ḥijjah (August 12). The day of ʿArafah will be next Monday (August 20) and Eid al-Adha will be Tuesday (August 21). May Allah accept all of our deeds.
Blessings of the 1st 10 days of Dhul Hijjah
It is narrated from Ibn Umar that the Prophet Muhammad (Blessings of Allah and Peace be upon him) said: "There aren't any days greater, nor any days in which deeds done in them are more beloved to Allah, the Most High, than these ten days (of Dhul-Hijjah). So, increase in them the saying of Tahleel (La Ilaaha illa Allah), and Takbeer (Allah Akbar) and Tahmeed (al-Hamdu li-llah)" [Musnad Imaam Ahmad]
Virtues of Fasting on the Day of Arafah
Abu Qatada (Allah be pleased with him) related that the Messenger of Allah (blessings and peace be upon him, his family, and companions) said, "Fasting the Day of `Arafah [9th of Dhul-Hijjah] expiates for two years, one prior and one forthcoming. And fasting the Day of `Ashura [10th of Muharram] expiates for the past year."
[Reported by Muslim, Abu Dawud, Nasa'i, and Ibn Majah]
