The 10 Days Are Here
The Prophet (pbuh) said, "There is no day more honourable in Allah's sight and no acts more beloved therein to Allah than those in these ten days (of Dhul-Hijjah)"
So with the month of Dhul-Hijjah here what kind of good deeds can you do to get the most out of these 10 days?
1. Get politically active
What better good deed can you do than get politically active to tackle Islamophobia and protect and defend your deen?
2. Fasting these 10 days
By fasting you get to experience the hunger pangs that are felt by so many of our Ummah. It should, like fasting in Ramadhan, help you empathise with the Ummah and give more for fight for our freedom.
3. Giving more charity during these 10 days
But not just charity. Give intelligent charity. Don't just send money to Palestinians to buy them plasters to cover a wound caused by a bomb but give money to the political Jihad to prevent them from being bombed in the first place.
4. Say the "Eid" Takbeers wherever you go. (Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar. Laa ilaaha illa Allah. Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar. Walillaahil hamd.)
But really think about what you are saying. Don't just say Allahu Akbar and then not lift a finger to protect and defend His religion which is constantly being attacked.
5. Try to pray more prayers in the Masjid
But don't just pray and leave - talk to Muslims about the importance of getting politically active to protect their religion. Also, get the Mosque to fulfil their role of teaching Islam properly too.
6. Increase ties of kinship (visit family, say kind words to them, help them through their troubles)
Family has always been important in Islam - and family in Islam covers everything from your mother and father to brothers and sisters all over the world.
7. Recite the Qur'an more, contemplating the meanings and act on it
The Prophet (S.A.W) was once described as the walking Qur'an and that's exactly how we should be. Don't just read the Qur'an blindly. Read, reflect and act on it.
8. Sacrifice your money and time for the Cause
Every penny and second you spend in Allah's Cause is never wasted. No good deed goes to waste so give whatever you can - it all counts.
May Allah give us all the sense to make the most of these 10 days in the correct way.
