There are no days on which righteous deeds are more beloved to Allah than these ten days
It is that time of the year! The entire month of Dhul Hijjah is sacred, however as we know – the most sacred days are the first ten days.
Our Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) said: “There are no days on which righteous deeds are more beloved to Allah than these ten days [i.e., the (first) ten days of Dhul-Hijjah.]” (Bukhari).
These ten days are a great opportunity for those of us that may be feeling a bit far from the faith, to almost press reset and use this as an opportunity to get closer to our creator. Remember, these are the days of Hajj and the blessed days of Eid al Adha.
Whoever is not able to go to Hajj should use this blessed time to complete more righteous deeds than usual. These can include all good deeds from giving charity, being kind to one’s parents, upholding ties of kinship, and enjoining what is good and forbidding what is evil.
We are all in together and any good deeds done during these days will truly make a difference – Humanity Without Borders started with the sole aim of supporting those in need all whilst maintaining our strict 100% donation policy and maintaining full transparency from donation point to implementation.
During the days of Eid, our teams worldwide will be continuing the way of Ibrahim (may peace be upon him) by sacrificing animals and following the traditions of Qurbani. Whilst thousands celebrate and spend time with their families during the days of Eid al Adha, our relief teams worldwide in over eight countries will be distributing your Qurbani donations to vulnerable families in need.
How can you get involved?
- Pray for those in need, both locally in the United Kingdom and worldwide
- Automate your charity through our MyTenDays platform
We have teamed up with the MyTenDays team to allow our Humanity Without Borders family an opportunity to automate and spread their donations across the first ten days of Dhul Hijjah.
- Fundraise to help us deliver aid to those in need worldwide
