slip-sliding away…..

Until November…

Posted by Yacoob on September 27, 2011

As mentioned in my last post, I’ll be going for Hajj very soon insha-Allah. And that means that I won’t be posting until at least late November. So until then, I wanted to leave you with something that I hope would be of benefit.

Many of you may not be fortunate enough to go on Hajj this year, but it’s an event that encompasses the entire Ummah – even those who aren’t there. Actually, more people DON’T go than those that do – since, mathematically, we’re over a billion strong in numbers, but only 3 to 5 million make it for Hajj each year.

So, to get you in the spirit, and also hopefully inspire you to make the best use of these coming days, I’d like to share with you the following:

  • Articles:
    • Shaykh Yaser Birjas – The Ten Days of Dhul Hijjah (link here)
    • Compilation – Learning more about Eid ul Adha (link here)
  • Audios: Shaykh Hussain Abdul Sattar
    • The Month of Dhul Hijjah –(Download | 34 minutes)
    • Learning from the Days of Hajj (Download | 11 minutes)

Remember that these are the best 10 days of the Islamic year (“There are no days during which righteous deeds are more beloved to Allah than these ten days…” – related by Bukhari and Tirmidhi) – so take advantage of them to boost your spirituality and draw closer to Allah. (For tips on how to do that, see the Yaser Birjas article referenced above).

Maybe you’ve slipped since Ramadan ended, or maybe you’ve maintained a steady level of consistency. But whatever the case, these coming days gives you the amazing chance to step up and recapture, in some way, the dedication and striving that Ramadan brought.

Again, thank you for reading. And do come back to visit in a few months. I hope to return to this blog in a few months with some pictures and other good things, insha-Allah.
