FASTING 9TH & EID SUNNAH 

Salaam All,

Takbeer of Tashreeq:
After each Fardh Salaah Recite from Fajr of 9th Dhul Hijjah until Asr of 13th Dhul Hijjah

"There are No days in which righteous deeds are more beloved to Allaah than these 10 days." [Bukhaari]

"There are No days greater in the sight of Allaah (including Ramadhaan) & in which righteous deeds are more beloved to Him than these 10 days, so during this time recite a great deal of Tahleel ("La ilaaha ill-Allaah"), Takbeer (Allaahu Akbar) and Tahmeed (Al Hamdu Lil-laah)." [Ahmad]

A Sunnah of the Prophet s.a.w: "When you see the new moon of Dhul-Hijjah, if any one of you wants to offer a sacrifice, then he should stop cutting his hair and nails until he has offered his sacrifice." [Muslim]

A Sunnah: "The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) used to fast on the first 9 days of Dhul-Hijjah and the day of ‘Ashoora’, and 3 days each month - the first Mondayand 2 Thursdays of the month". [Nasaa’i, Abu Dawood]

Fasting on the Day of ‘Arafaah(9th Zilhijjah). He s.a.w said, "It expiates for the sins of the previous year and of the coming year." [Muslim]

"There is no day on which Allaah frees more people from the Fire than the Day of ‘Arafaah. He comes close and expresses His pride to the angels, saying, ‘What do these people want?’" [Muslim]

FIRST TOPIC:

Importance: The Night Preceding Eid-ul-Fitr/Eid-ul-Adha - Ibadat and Asking Forgiveness - Chand Raat (Night before EID)

Even though this N
ight has been named Lailatul Jaiza (the night of reward), it is unfortunate that us Muslims do not take advantage of such an opportunity to gain reward and blessings. Rather, at times we get so engaged in renting cars, shopping for nice clothes, applying henna etc., that we become negligent of the commands of Allah (swt).

The scholars have stated that Allah (swt) rewards His fasting slaves on this very night, by accepting one's du‘as. Thus a person's every wish and prayer will be granted. Therefore one should perform nafl, recite Qur'an and perform zikr on this night

Our Beloved Prophet Muhammed (Sullull La Ho Alihai Wassalum) said, "The one who on Eid's day recites SUBHANALLAHI WABIHAMDIHI “300” times and gives its blessings as a gift to the muslims who have died, then 1,000 enlightened blessings will enter the grave of every Muslim. And when he dies Allah will send 1000 enlightened blessings in his grave.(mukaashifa-tul-quloob by Imam Ghazali).
