BismilLahir Rahmaanir Raheem.

A Muslim has to seize every opportunity that could bring him closer to Allah. Among the special seasons of worship are the first ten days of Dhul Hijjah which will start from tomorrow Tuesday subject to sightings of the moon and which Allah has preferred over all the other days of the year.

فعن ابن عباس رضي الله عنهما ، عن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم قال : ( ما من أيام العمل الصالح فيهن أحب إلى الله منه في هذه الأيام العشر . قالوا ولا الجهاد في سبيل الله !! قال : ولا الجهاد في سبيل الله ، إلا رجل خرج بنفسه وماله ولم يرجع من ذلك بشيء ) أخرجه البخاري 2/457 

It was narrated from Ibn ‘Abbaas (may Allaah be pleased with him) that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “There are no days on which righteous deeds are more beloved to Allaah than these ten days.” They said: “Not even jihad for the sake of Allaah?” He said: “Not even jihad for the sake of Allaah, unless a man goes out himself for jihad taking his wealth with him and does not come back with anything.” Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 2/457 

وعن عبد الله بن عمر رضي الله عنهما ، عن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم قال : ( ما من أيام أعظم عند الله ولا أحب إليه العمل فيهن من هذه الأيام العشر فأكثروا فيهن من التهليل والتكبير والتحميد ) أخرجه احمد 7/224 وصحّح إسناده أحمد شاكر

 

 It was narrated from ‘Abd-Allaah ibn ‘Umar (may Allaah be pleased with him) that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “There are no days that are greater before Allaah or in which good deeds are more beloved to Him, than these ten days, so recite a great deal of tahleel, takbeer and tahmeed during them.” Narrated by Ahmad, 7/224; its isnaad was classed as saheeh by Ahmad Shaakir. 

 

The Sunnah indicates that the one who wants to offer a sacrifice on the 10th of Dhul Hijjah must stop cutting his hair, nails and removing anything from his skin, from the beginning of the ten days until after he has offered his sacrifice that’s from tomorrow, because

The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said: “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.” 

However, if a person does any of these things deliberately, he must seek Allah’s forgiveness but is not required to offer (an extra) sacrifice in expiation. Whoever needs to remove some hair, nails, etc., because it harms him, such as having a broken nail or a wound in a site where there is hair, should do so, and there is nothing wrong with that.

May Allah aid us in our efforts to make good use of these coming days. May Allah heal and speedy recovery to all those injured in the haram accident and grant jannatul firdaus for the dead ones. Aameen
