Waaahh More Chance for Us

Did you miss Ramadhan? Especially the intimate last ten days of the holy month? And waiting for the next Ramdhan is too long? (Not to mention we might not be alive). And our ibadah is rollercoasting down?

Do not fret. Allah is Most Merciful. He is giving us another chance to pick up. More chances to build up on rewards.


It is reported by Abdullah Ibne Abbaas radhiyallahu anhuma that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam said, "No good deeds done on other days are superior to those done on these (first ten days of Zul Hijjah)." Thereupon, some companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam said, "Not even Jihadd ? " He replied, "Not even jihaad, except that of a man who does it by putting himself and his property in danger (for Allah's sake) and does not return with any of these things."
Sahih Bukhaari.

What can we do? What can we do?

You can fast from the 1st of Dzulhijjah all the way to the day of Arafah which is the 9th of Dzulhijjah. Sembilan hari je uols.

Tapi kalau tak mampu jugak boleh puasa on the 9th Dzulhijjah, that is the day of Arafah

The Prophet (PBUH) used to fast on the ninth day of Dhul-Hijjah and he said: “Fasting the Day of Arafah (ninth Dhul-hijjah) is an expiation for (all the sins of) the previous year and an expiation for (all the sins of) the coming year.” (Muslim)

Complete the Quran reading. Or at least do more than what you normally do.

You can try and do more nawafil prayers. 12 rakkahs a day.

You can do Qiyam.

You can do many good deeds as simple as smiling.

Wet your tongue with Dzikir.

Make good relationship with family and friends.


Sembahyang raya.

And Qurban on the Eid Adha.

Just chose one of the above or better still all of them or even more more more ibadah!

Rewardnya? The hadith explains it all.

By the way, each of the prescribed ibadah pun dah banyak reward on normal days, what more if its on virtuous days like the first ten days of Dzul Hijah.

Maka mari mari kita rebut rebut! peluang baik! Peluang baik!

p/s : I attended a talk on this topic yesterday and one thing she said in the talk that strike me most was. You said you want Jannah? You really do? But you don't even want to sacrifice your sleeping time for Qiyam?

oh and I heard something interesting masa kursus haji.
If you wish to do Qurban, from the time you niat nak Qurban sampai hari Qurban tu, you are not supposed to potong kuku or rambut.
Sunat lah kalau tak potong. Kalau potong tak berdosa.
satu lagi acara nak dapat pahala.. Insya-Allah.

friends - that's what friends are for kan? :D

elisa - what i heard was dari 1st Dzul Hijjah tu not to cut nails and hair. Sunat that is. But then I am looking for the dalil here and there tak jumpa so I takut lak nak bubuh. Kalau ada i akan letak ralat.
