'Umar ibn al-Khattaab (may Allaah be pleased with him) said: “There is no religion except with a jamaa’ah, and there is no jamaa’ah except with a ruler, and there is no ruler except with hearing and obeying (him).”

— [Reported by ad-Daarimee in his Sunan, 1/69, via Mu’aamalah al-Hukkaam, p. 5, of Shaykh ‘Abd as-Salaam ibn Barjis aal ‘Abd al-Kareem]

Question:
Oh noble sheikh, in a few days we wll be entering into the ten days of Dhul-Hijjah. So what is your advice for the people regarding taking advantage of them? I hope for an explanation of its’ virtues and the actions that should be performed in it.

Answer:
The ten days of Dhul-Hijjah begins with the entrance of the month and ends on the day of the ‘eid. The Messenger  may peace and blessings be upon him, said about actions in these ten days:

“There are no days wherein righteous actions are more beloved to Allaah than these ten days.” They said: Not even jihad in the way of Allaah? He said: “Not even jihad in the way of Allaah, except for a man who leaves out (for jihad) with his wealth and self and doesn’t return back with any of them.”[Ibn ‘Abbaas-Saheeh Bukhaaree]

So with this I strongly encourage my Muslim brothers to seize this tremendous opportunity  to perform many righteous actions in these ten days from recitation of the Qur’aan, remembrance of Allaah, charity, fasting, etc, strive to perform many different acts of obedience.

It’s very troubling to see that the people are heedless about these ten days. Do you not find them exerting themselves in the last ten nights of Ramadan? Na’m of course they exert themselves in them. However with the ten days of Dhul-Hijjah you will be hard pressed to find one who differentiates between them and other than them. But if a person performs righteous actions in these ten days he revives that which the Messenger, peace and blessings be upon him, instructed with doing.

Also if an individual intends to slaughter at the ending of these ten days then he shouldn’t remove anything from his hair, nails, or body.

As for someone slaughtering on his behalf, then there’s nothing wrong with him clipping his own nails or cutting his hair. And if a person wants to slaughter for himself and his household with one sacrifice as is the sunnah, then it isn’t upon his family to abide by this principle. It only pertains to the one slaughtering, in this instance that being the father.

TN: Just a reminder that Dhul-Hijjah is literally coming within the next couple of days so don’t forget inshaallaah to act upon the advice of the Sheikh, may Allaah have mercy upon all of us.

Gabriel used to descend upon the Messenger of Allah ﷺ with the Sunnah just as he used to descend with the Qur’an.

The majority of those who do not accept advice act like that because they look up to themselves.
