Adapted from: Perfect days for perfect Ibaadah
By Asma bint Shameem
The first ten days of Dhul-Hijjah are the most beloved to Allah .The Prophet testified to that. He said:
"There are no days in which righteous deeds are more beloved to Allah than these ten days." (Bukhaari)
Obviously, Hajj is one of the best deeds that one can do during these ten days.
However, for those of us who were not invited to His House this year, there are still many, good deeds that one can do and earn the Pleasure of Allah.
Some of these are:
1) Fast all nine days and especially fast the Day of Arafah
The Prophet (PBUH) said: "Anyone who fasts for one day for Allah pleasure, Allah will keep his face away from the (Hell) fire for (a distance covered by a journey of) seventy years." (Bukhari, Muslim)
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)
2) Do a LOT of Dhikr and Takbeer
The Prophet (PBUH) said: "There are no days on which good deeds are greater or more beloved to Allah than on these ten days", so recite much
Tahleel (saying Laa ilaaha ill-Allaah),
Takbeer (saying Allahu akbar)
and Tahmeed (saying al-hamdu Lillaah)." (Ahmad -Saheeh)
Ibn Umar and Abu Hurayrah used to go out in the marketplace during the first ten days of Dhul-Hijjah, reciting Takbeer, and the people would recite Takbeer when they heard them. (Bukhaari)
Takbeer at this time is a Sunnah.
So, recite it in the masjid, in your home, on the street and every place where it is permitted to remember Allah.
Revive the Sunnah that have been virtually forgotten and earn great rewards for doing so.
The Prophet said: "Whoever revives an aspect of my Sunnah that is forgotten after my death, he will have a reward equivalent to that of the people who follow him, without it detracting in the least from their reward." (Tirmidhi- a hasan hadeeth)
Men should recite these phrases out loud, and women should recite them quietly.
3) Stand in Night Prayers: (Tahajud, Qiyam al Layl)

Remember the virtues of spending the night in prayer, and its sweetness in Ramadan?
Why not revive this beautiful act of worship during these nights as well?
Remember, how in the last third of every night, Allah Almighty calls out to us, His servants:Is there anyone to invoke Me, so that I may respond to his invocation? Is there anyone to ask Me, so that I may grant him his request? Is there anyone seeking My forgiveness, so that I may forgive him? (Bukhaari, Muslim)
 Why do we miss this golden opportunity?
So, seize the chance NOW and expose yourself to His Divine Generosity and Mercy, ask Him to forgive you and guide you and set things aright.
He will surely listen.
4) Make Sincere Repentance.
One of the most important action during these ten days is to repent sincerely to Allah and to give up all kinds of disobedience and sin right away because we do not know when we will die and thus become unable to repent, and also because one evil deed leads to another.
But, what does 'repentance' mean ?
It means that you come back to Allah and give up all the deeds, open and secret, that He dislikes….
That you regret whatever you did in the past, giving it up immediately and be determined never ever, to return to it, and resolve to adhere firmly to the Truth by doing whatever Allah loves."But as for him who repented, believed and did righteous deeds, then he will be among those who are successful." [Al-Qasas 28:67]
5) Come back to the Noble Quraan
It is time now to dust off your copy of the Noble Quraan and return to its refuge.
Make it a daily habit, using these 10 days the beginning of a strong and beautiful relationship with it.
Read it with meaning, reflect on it, understand it, and then implement it in your daily life.
Remember that reading one letter of the Quraan earns you ten rewards.
In this way, reading Surat Al-Fatihah, which doesnt take more than two minutes, will give you more than one thousand rewards!
This is on ordinary days, so what about these magnificent days!
Certainly the reward will be far greater, Insha Allah.

6) Increase ALL the types of good deeds.
If we are unable to go to Hajj this year, we should occupy ourselves in the worship of Allah; pray extra prayers (Nafilah) recite the Quraan.
Make Dhikr of Allah, send Salaams on the Prophet, make dua, give charity, honor our parents, uphold ties of kinship, enjoin what is good and forbid what is evil, and add other good deeds and acts of worship during these days.
"So whosoever does good equal to the weight of an atom, shall see it; And whosoever does evil equal to the weight of an atom, shall see it."[Al-Zalzalah 99:7-8]
7) Get the reward of Hajj wherever you are
You may be unable to do Hajj this year, and you may feel sad.
However, you can get the reward of it right where you are.The Prophet said: "Whoever prays Fajr Prayer in congregation, and then sits and remembers Allah until the sun rises, then (after a while) prays two rakas, he will gain a reward equal to that of making perfect Hajj and Umrah." [He repeated the word "perfect" thrice.] (At-Tirmidhi)
8. Slaughter an animal and distribute the meat.
Ibn Umar said: The Prophet lived in Madeenah for 10 years and every year he slaughtered an animal." (Ahmad-Saheeh by al-Albaani)
9) Attend Eid prayers
But, remember that Eid prayer is a form of worship and we should avoid unislamic behavior (especially) in dress and in etiquette during these times.
10) Thank Allah.
One of the best forms of worshipping Allah Subhaanahu wa Taala is to thank Him, deeply, sincerely and continuously.
Alhamdulillah, there is much to be gained in these coming days.
Hasten to do good deeds and striving hard in worship .
"And worship your Lord until there comes unto you the certainty (death)." [Al-Hijr 15:99]

Mumbai rocked by attacks

Mumbai rocked by attacks

Over the past 20 years, Mumbai has suffered vicious communal riots, repeated bomb attacks, persistent gang violence, and political assassinations.
It is India's most prosperous city, its most outward-looking - and also its most volatile.
Still, the scale and sophistication of these audacious attacks will be shocking for the 20 million people who live in and around Mumbai - and for a country whose growing prosperity is in large part built on the city's commercial success.
The targets included the main rail station, one of the world's busiest, and the sort of hotels and restaurants patronised by local and visiting business leaders.
The country has been captivated and horrified by live television pictures of flames leaping from the roof of one of its grandest hotels - and of troops surrounding another Mumbai luxury hotel to root out remaining assailants.

Train attack in Mumbai, 2006

For the authorities, the immediate priority is to respond to the emergency and to free those still trapped or held hostage, rather than to attribute responsibility.
India's TV news channels have, in the initial hours of the drama, largely refrained from pointing the finger of blame.
The claim from a little-heard-of organisation, Deccan Mujahideen, may harden suspicions that Islamic radicals are involved.
Two years ago the authorities blamed a series of bomb attacks on Mumbai commuter trains on Islamic militant groups once based in Pakistan.
Back in 1993, a string of co-ordinated attacks on landmarks across Mumbai, bombings which left hundreds dead, were widely believed to have been the work of organised crime.
The Indian authorities held neighbouring Pakistan responsible for organising those bombings, an allegation angrily rejected in Islamabad.
Election disruption?
But there are other possible culprits.
Some recent bomb attacks - though on nothing like this scale - have been blamed on militant Hindu organisations.
The motive is far from clear. The choice of targets might suggest an attempt to undermine business confidence and put off foreign investors.
Some may wonder whether the attacks are intended to frustrate attempts to improve relations between India and Pakistan.
Or perhaps they are designed to destabilise the world's largest democracy.
A nationwide election is expected in the next few months, and there are regional elections currently being held in several Indian states.
One is in Indian-administered Kashmir, the Himalayan region whose disputed status has been the main cause of 60 years of tension and conflict between South Asia's two nuclear neighbours.

Indian security forces have been exchanging fire with gunmen holding dozens of hostages in two luxury hotels in the Indian city of Mumbai (Bombay). Troops surrounded the premises shortly after armed men carried out a series of co-ordinated attacks across the city, killing 101 people and injuring 287.
The hotels were among several locations in the main tourist and business district targeted late on Wednesday.
Police say four suspected terrorists have been killed and nine arrested.
The situation is still volatile in two of the most high-profile targets of Wednesday's attacks - the Taj Mahal Palace and Oberoi Trident hotels, where armed men are believed to be holding about 40 hostages.
There are reports of intermittent exchange of fire between security forces and the armed attackers barricaded inside both hotels.
Correspondents say security personnel have so far not stormed the premises perhaps for fear of endangering the lives of hostages, some of whom could be Westerners.

Flames and black smoke billow from the Taj Mahal Palace hotel, Mumbai

Police say the dead include six foreigners, 14 police officers and 81 Indian nationals.
Eyewitness reports suggest the attackers singled out British and American passport holders.
If the reports are true, our security correspondent Frank Gardner says it implies an Islamist motive - attacks inspired or co-ordinated by al-Qaeda.
A claim of responsibility has been made by a previously unknown group calling itself the Deccan Mujahideen.
Our correspondent says it could be a hoax or assumed name for another group.

In other developments:
• Fire crews evacuated people from the upper floors of the Taj Mahal Palace, where a grenade attack caused a blaze
• Israel says it is concerned for the safety of its citizens in Mumbai, as a rabbi and his family are feared captured by gunmen
• The head of Mumbai's anti-terrorism unit and two other senior officers are among those killed, officials say
• The White House held a meeting of top intelligence and counter-terrorism officials, and pledges to help the Indian government
• India's Bombay Stock Exchange and National Stock Exchange markets are closed, as the authorities urge local people to stay at home
• There are unconfirmed reports that five gunmen have taken hostages in an office block in the financial district of Mumbai.

"The terrorists have used automatic weapons and in some places grenades have been lobbed," said AN Roy, police commissioner of Maharashtra state.

The city's main commuter train station, a hospital, and a restaurant popular with tourists were among at least seven locations caught up in the violence.
Local TV images showed blood-splattered streets, and bodies being taken into ambulances.
One eyewitness told the BBC he had seen a gunman opening fire in the Taj Mahal's lobby.

"We all moved through the lobby in the opposite direction and another gunman then appeared towards where we were moving and he started firing immediately in our direction."
One British tourist said she spent six hours barricaded in the Oberoi hotel.
"There were about 20 or 30 people in each room. The doors were locked very quickly, the lights turned off, and everybody just lay very still on the floor," she said.
There has been a wave of bombings in Indian cities in recent months which has left scores of people dead.
Most of the attacks have been blamed on Muslim militants, although police have also arrested suspected Hindu extremists.
The BBC's Sanjeev Srivastava says the timing and symbolism of the latest attacks could not have been worse.
By choosing to target the richest district of India's financial capital in such a brazen and effective manner, he says those behind the attacks have perhaps dealt the severest blow to date to the morale and self esteem of the Indian authorities.
The attacks have come amidst elections in several Indian states and exposes the governing coalition to the charge that it has failed to combat terror, our correspondent says.
