allaah the almighty has decreed upon himself mercy and distributed it among his slaves. allaah the almighty says (what means): ‎‎‎‎‎ ‎‎‎‎‎{but my mercy encompasses all things."} [quran 7:156]‎‎‎‎‎ ‎out of his mercy, allaah the almighty granted us seasons where good deeds are multiplied, ranks are elevated and one can regain what he may have missed in the past. thus, a happy person is the one who seizes such a chance, while the wretched one is the one who is oblivious of it. ‎

among these blessed days are the first ten days of thul-hijjah as these are the best days in the year. they are better than the days of ramadhaan, while the nights of ramadhaan are better than the nights of the first ten days of thul-hijjah.‎
 
proofs of the virtues of these days:‎
first,‎ ‎allaah the almighty swore by these days and he only swears by whatever is exalted and lofty in stature. ‎‎‎‎allaah the almighty says (what means):‎‎‎‎‎ {‎by the dawn and [by] ten nights}  [quran 89:1, 2] ‎‎‎‎
these nights are the ten nights of the first ten days of thul-hijjah as stated by scholars of tafseer (exegesis).
‎‎second,‎‎ ‎‎‎‎‎it was narrated on the authority of ibn ‘abbaas  may  allaah  be  pleased  with  him that the prophet,  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  allaah exalt his mention ), said:‎‎‎‎‎ ‎‎‎‎“no good deeds done on other days are superior to those done on these days (meaning the first ten days of thul-hijjah).”then some companions of the prophet,  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  allaah exalt his mention ), said, ”not even jihaad?” he replied: “not even jihaad, except that of a man who puts himself and his property in danger (for the sake of allaah) and does not return with any of those things.”[al-bukhaari and muslim]‎‎‎‎
‎‎‎‎in another hadeeth (narration), the prophet,  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  allaah exalt his mention ), said:‎‎‎‎ ‎‎‎‎“there is no deed that is better before allaah or more greatly rewarded than a good deed done on the (first) ten days of al-adh-ha.”it was said, “not even jihaad for the sake of allaah?” he said:“not even jihaad for the sake of allaah, except for a man who goes out for jihaad taking himself and his wealth with him and does not come back with anything.”[saheeh at-targheeb wa at-tarheeb "1148"]
‎‎third,‎‎ ‎one of the virtues of these days is that acts of worship are combined during them, as these are days of perfection. these days contain the five obligatory prayers just like other days and one might pay zakaah (obligatory charity) if his property has reached the nisaab (limit) and one lunar year has passed. during these days one may fast optional fasts or if he could not slaughter a sacrifice, and people perform hajj during these days. moreover, these days entail thikr (remembrance of allaah), talbiyah and invocation which indicate tawheed (islamic monotheism). thus, the gathering of all these acts of worship is considered an honor that is peculiar to these days only.‎
‎‎fourth,‎‎ ‎these days have the day of ‘arafah, which is the ninth day of thul-hijjah.‎ ‎the day of ‘arafah is the day when sins are forgiven, people are saved from hell and allaah the almighty boasts about the people of ‘arafah. ‎‎‎it was narrated on the authority of ‘aa’ishah  may  allaah  be  pleased  with  her that the prophet,  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  allaah exalt his mention ), said:‎‎‎‎ ‎‎‎‎“there is no day when allaah sets free more slaves from hell than the day of ‘arafah." [muslim]‎‎‎‎
‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎“allaah boasts about the people of ‘arafah to the angels, saying, ‎‎‎‎ ‎‎‎‎‘just look at my slaves! they have come to me with disheveled hair and covered in dust, standing in the forenoon.’”‎‎‎‎it was narrated on the authority of jaabir  may  allaah  be  pleased  with  him that the prophet,  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  allaah exalt his mention ), said:‎‎‎‎‎‎ ‎‎‎‎“there is no better day in the sight of allaah than the day of ‘arafah. allaah the almighty descends [on that day] to the lowest heaven, and boasts about the people of the earth to the dwellers of heaven." [ibn hibbaan] the wording of another narration reads:‎‎‎‎
fifth,‎ ‎‎‎‎some of its virtues are:‎‎‎‎ ‎these days have the day of nahr (sacrifice) which is the tenth day of thul-hijjah. this is the best day as stated in the following hadeeth:‎ ‎‎‎‎"the best of days is the day of nahr." [ahmad, abu daawood: saheeh chain of narrators]‎‎‎‎
on the day of nahr, pligrims perform most of the rites, such as throwing the pebbles, shaving their heads, slaughtering the sacrifices, performing tawaaf (circumambulation), sa‘y (seven circuits between as-safa and al-marwah), performing the ‘eed prayer and slaughtering the udh-hiyah (sacrificial animal).
