The first 10 days of Dhu al Ḥijjah are blessed days. May these days be filled with acts of worship, prayers and charity. Fasting is a recommended prophetic practice, especially the day before ‘Eid al Adḥā. This ‘Eid is also the time to share Udhiyyah/ Qurbani meats with family, friends and the poor. May Allah bless one and all with accepted worship and charity. May the world experience endless peace and harmony. May Allah accept the Hajj of the pilgrims who will assemble at the sacred lands at this blessed season.
