If you are not amongst those, who by Allahs grace have been able to attend this great act of worship, then do not despair!!

       The first ten days of the sacred month of Thul-Hijjah represents a great opportunity to invest in the way of good deeds.

        Narrated Ibn Abbaas: The Prophet, sallallaahu álayhi wa sallam , said:  No good deeds done on other days are superior to those done on the first ten days of Thul-Hijjah.  Then some of the companions of the Prophet, pbuh, asked:  not even Jihad? he replied:  not even Jihad, except that of a man who does it by putting himself and his property in danger for Allahs sake and does not return with any of these things. (Al-Bukhaari)

        Even, by just abstaining from cutting ones hair or clipping ones nails during these days, for the person who intends to sacrifice in Al Adha Eid, is an act of Sunnah and, Insha-Allah, will be rewarded accordingly.  May Allah help us to be amongst those who make the most of those blessed days?  Being a pilgrim or otherwise.  Ameen
