The excellence of good deeds in the first ten days of Dhul-Hijjah
Ibn 'Abbas reports that the Prophet (saws) said: “No good deeds done on other days are superior to those done on these days [meaning the ten days of Thul-Hijjah].” The companions asked: “O Messenger of Allaah (saws), not even jihaad in the way of Allaah?” He said: “Not even jihad, save for the man who puts his life and wealth in danger [for Allaah's sake] and returns with neither of them.” [Sahih Al-Bukhari: vol.2, pp.45-6 , no. 86]
Ahmad and At-Tabaraanee record from Ibn 'Umar that the Messenger of Allaah (saws) said: “There is no day more honorable in Allaah's sight and no acts more beloved therein to Allaah than those in these ten days. So say tahleel [“There is no God but Allaah”], takbeer [Allaah is the greatest] and tahmid [“All praise is due to Allaah”] a lot [on those days].” [Irwaaul Ghaleel: vol. 3, pp. 398-9.]
