Good Deed Of The Day : Recitation Of The Quran
There are certain times of year in which even small acts of worship are rewarded in abundance.
These periods of the year are in reality gifts from Allah swt that he has given to us.
And from those blessed times in which worship is abundantly and hugely rewarded are the first ten days of Dhul Hijjah.
These days are a great season of worship and a great opportunity every Muslim should seize.
The truthful believer becomes more active in worship on these days.
Reciting the Qur’an abundantly !
“Whoever reads a letter from the Book of Allah, he will have a reward. And that reward will be multiplied by ten. I am not saying that “Alif, Laam, Meem” is a letter, rather I am saying that “Alif” is a letter, “laam” is a letter and “meem” is a letter.” [At-Tirmidhi] .
So if one letter of the Qur’an is equivalent to ten good deeds then imagine how much reward there is for reading each letter during these blessed 10 days which are said to be the best days of the year! Subhanallah!!
Let us recite as much of the Qur’an as we can during these 10 days and nights and aim to recite it from cover to cover if we can.
After that we should continue reciting the Qur’an throughout the rest of the year, for it is one of the excellent forms of worship!!!
Tip: Increase your recitation by adding a few minutes or pages to your usual recitation routine.
If you don’t have a routine yet, maybe this is the time for you start forming the habit.
Begin by committing to recite at least one or two pages (or for 10 minutes, if you are a slow reciter) and then work to increase on this.
Carry a small pocket mus’haf with you or install a reliable Qur’an app on a mobile device so that Shaytan cannot discourage you when you are out and about!!!
Note: It is also very relevant to read the story of Prophet Ibrahim 'alayhi'l-salām (peace be upon him) which will give one a deeper understanding of the rituals of Hajj and the qurbani.
We pray your 10 days of Dhul Hijjah will be full of prayers, prosperity and blessings.
