In the Name of Allah,
Praise be to Allah,
Following after Eid-al-Fitr, we enter Eid-al-Adha, which also starts the first 10 days of Dhul-Hijjah.
Here in this article, I will be dicussing the many great things you can do in Eid-al-Adha:
Read lots of Qur'an to benefit yourself and many others on this blessed day.
You can find your local Masjid (mosque) and start praying Jummah and other prayers there.
Dhikr is one of the actions that are most beloved to Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala).
Sunnah prayers, while not obligatory, increases rewards and is what the Prophet ﷺ used to do:
Narrated 'Umar (radi allahu anhu):
Giving Zakat (charity) is a good and benefitting action. You can find lots of Muslim charities to donate to.
If you want, you can start fasting during the 10 days of Dhul-Hijjah, which increases rewards.
Preserving the ties of kinship is by visiting family even if they are not Muslims. This has high rewards.
Anas ibn Malik (radi allahu anhu) reported that the Prophet ﷺ said:
After a prayer in the Masjid is finished, the Imam will usually host a Khutbah, which the Imam speaks about important benefits.
Eid-al-Adha is a great time of the year and Alhamdulillah we have reached it! These 8 things to do will surely increase your piety.
May Allah bless you, and shukran.
