August 01, 2022, 08:48:12 pm Ruhi_Rose: As-Salam Alaykum MV guests. Just a reminder how time flies. We're already in the Islamic new year of 1444 month of Muharram, a very tragic time of our history. May The Almighty grant Hussein bin Ali and his comrades the best spot in Paradise for their unflinching courage to uphold the values of the Final Message, The Noble Quran.  Please read our post Ashura - who was Hussein? Also explore its related links.

July 07, 2022, 04:02:47 pm Zainab_M: Eid-al-Adha expected on 10th Dhul Hijja 1443 (July 9th 2022, Saturday) Insh'Allah,.
June 30, 2022, 05:37:22 pm Heba E. Husseyn: Salaam all.  Today is 1st Dhul Hijja 1443 (corresponding to June 30, 2022).  Day of Arafah will be on 9th Dhul Hijja (July 8th) and Eid-al-Adha on 10th Dhul Hijja (July 9th). Fasting on the Day of Arafah is not obligatory, however it's a good day to observe a nafl fast for those healthy enough to do so.  Insh'Allah.

Salam to all. 
I am getting very muddled up with all the varying things our people keep putting on the table.  Okay, I knew 9th Dhul Hijja or day of Arafat is recommended to keep nafl fast.  Today in a newsletter from another Islamic center, someone says the first 9 days of Dhul Hijja to be observed for nafl fast.  Please clarify.

Another topic confusing me is the ten nights as stated in Surah Al-Fajr is sometimes explained by our scholars as referring to the last 10 nights of Ramadan.  At other times they say it refers to the first 10 days of Dhul Hijja.   As we are now in the month of Dhul Hijja, recently someone quoted the Quran Verse   “By the dawn; And [by] the ten nights.” (89:1-2) and they interpreted by saying that the ten nights of Dhul Hijja are so important that Allah swears by these 10 nights in the Quran.  But I have also heard others claiming that these ten nights refer to the odd nights in the last 10 nights of Ramadan.  Which is the right interpretation?

Walaykum As-Salam.



I am getting very muddled up with all the varying things our people keep putting on the table.  Okay, I knew 9th Dhul Hijja or day of Arafat is recommended to keep nafl fast.  Today in a newsletter from another Islamic center, someone says the first 9 days of Dhul Hijja to be observed for nafl fast.  Please clarify.

These conflicting information are common within the traditionalist Hadithist society.  Not much to worry about.  Just keep in mind, the Noble Quran makes it obligatory to fast during the 30 days of Ramadan only.  Other than that, it's up to every individual which days they want to observe nafl fasts, if they wish to.  The Day of Arafah is undoubtedly a very suitable day to observe a nafl fast.  Mount Arafah is the spot from where the beloved Final Messenger (pbuh) delivered his final sermon shortly before his passing. On the 9th day of Hajj (day of Arafah) those of us performing Hajj visit Arafah and supplicate in plenty as it's a wonderful day of supplicate and make every heartfelt du'a.  Those on Hajj generally don't fast on this day because of their hectic schedule.  But many of those not performing Hajj do like to fast on this day, if they are physically and mentally healthy.  But this is not obligatory.  Fasting during the other 8 days of Hajj is also entirely up to every person.  No compulsions at all.  Usually those interested in nafl fasting during Dhul Hijja observe it only on the 9th day of Hajj, the Day of Arafah. 



Another topic confusing me is the ten nights as stated in Surah Al-Fajr is sometimes explained by our scholars as referring to the last 10 nights of Ramadan.  At other times they say it refers to the first 10 days of Dhul Hijja.   As we are now in the month of Dhul Hijja, recently someone quoted the Quran Verse   “By the dawn; And [by] the ten nights.” (89:1-2) and they interpreted by saying that the ten nights of Dhul Hijja are so important that Allah swears by these 10 nights in the Quran.  But I have also heard others claiming that these ten nights refer to the odd nights in the last 10 nights of Ramadan.  Which is the right interpretation?

The Verses in Surah Al-Fajr neither refer to the first ten days of Dhul Hijjah nor the last ten nights of Ramadan.  Ten Nights refer to every group of 10 nights & days of every month of 30 days.  In 30 days there will be 3 groups of 10 nights, that's simple maths.  In each of these 10 nights, alternatingly one will be an odd number and the other an even number.  It is this remarkable phenomenon the every 30 days of a month divided into groups of 10 that The Almighty is taking an oath on.  To read the complete interpretation of the ten nights, please visit this post and scroll down to the hyperlink that reads "Ten Nights, the Even and the Odd."
