Virtues of the First 10 Days of “Dhul-Hijja”

The Prophet Mohammed (peace and blessings be upon him) said the following about the first ten days of Dhul Hijjah: “There are no days in which righteous deeds are more beloved to Allah than these ten days.” The people asked, “Not even Jihad for the sake of Allah?” He said, “Not even Jihad for the sake of Allah, except in the case of a man who went out to fight giving himself and his wealth up for the cause, and came back with nothing (Bukhari)”.
