Salaam Alaikum Sis Heba. 

I too am keen to know the Quraanic reference to this conclusion.  I don't know of any verses in the Quraan that make this connection directly.  The direct reference comes only from hadith.  I received a newsletter from Islamic Tube which I quote below.

"Ibn ‘Abbaas, Ibn al-Zubayr, Mujaahid and others of the earlier and later generations said that this refers to the first ten days of Dhu’l-Hijjah. Ibn Katheer said: “This is the correct opinion.” (Tafseer Ibn Katheer, 8/413).

The Prophet (sa) commanded us to recite a lot of Dhikr (remembrance) of Allah, example – Allahu Akbar, La elaha illallah, Alhamdulillah, Subhaanallah

These days include the pilgrims (hujjaj) performing Hajj in Mecca.

These days include the Day of Arafaah, on which Allaah perfected / completed the religion of Islaam and fasting on this day will expiate for the sins of two years

These days include the Day of Sacrifice – Eid ul Adha."



Thus, except for the above source (hadith) outside the Quraan, I cannot see any direct connection within the Quraan of the of first 3 verses of Surah Al-Fajr with the first 10 days of Hajj.  Nonetheless, based on the various instructions of the Noble Quraan about the reverence of this important month, (along with my common sense) I fully agree that these first 10 days of the respected month of Zil-Hajj are very special indeed.  Extra worship throughout this period and fasting on the day of Arafah will only be a source of immense good for our souls and might atone for some of our sins, if Allah wills.

Like br. TS wrote, surely the "Ten Nights" as mentioned in verse 2 of Surah Al-Fajr must be having a meaning.  It might very well mean the first 10 Nights of Zil-Hajj but only Allah knows best the truth of it.
