hajj prayers

Dhul Hajj is a very sacred month in Islam, we have been guided by Allah to perform hajj which is an act of worship and also the fifth pillar of Islam. Followed by it is Qurbani/sacrifice that we make in the way of Allah. The first ten days of this month are very sacred, holy, and hold immense importance so one must fast and spend as much time in the ibadat of Allah as one can. These days are a way to turn towards Allah, ask for His forgiveness, and put forward all your desires and wishes that you want fulfilled. On the tenth of dhul hajj, the Muslim community celebrates Eid-ul-Adha and those who can afford to slaughter an animal in the way of Allah then distribute the meat among their Muslim brothers.

Those who are unable to perform hajj can seek Allah’s immense blessings and forgiveness by spending most of the time, of the first ten days of dhul hajj, in the remembrance of Allah. These days are referred to as the most sacred and best days of the year. So here are some duas that should be constantly read to seek Allah’s mercy and blessings.

Reciting Takbeer

اللَّهُ أَكْبَرُ اللَّهُ أَكْبَرُ لَا إلَهَ إلَّا اللَّهُ وَاَللَّهُ أَكْبَرُ اللَّهُ أَكْبَرُ وَلِلَّهِ الْحَمْد

Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, Laa ilaaha illallahu Wallahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, Wa lillahil Hamd

This is one of the most powerful Sunnah and should be recited constantly during these ten days. By spending most of the time praising Allah and thanking Him for His blessings one can make the most of Allah’s blessings,

Dua for forgiveness

رَبَّنَآ إِنَّنَآ ءَامَنَّافَٱغْفِرْ لَنَا ذُنُوبَنَا وَقِنَا عَذَابَ ٱلنَّارِ

“Rabbanaaa innanaaa aamannaa faghfir lanaazunoobanaa wa qinaa ‘azaaban Naar”

Allah is the most merciful and the most giving so when one supplicates and asks sincerely for forgiveness from Allah, He surely extends His rewards and mercy upon the believer.

Dua for protection

اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَسْأَلُكَ رِضَاكَ وَالجَنَّةَ ، وَأَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنْ سَخَطِكَ وَالنَّارِ

“Allaahumma innee as-aluka Ridaaka wal Jannah wa a’audhu’bika min sakhatika wan-naar”
