Article: Spiritual Excellences of Dhū’l Ḥijjah

Those seeking spiritual perfection will prepare for Dhū’l Ḥijjah even before the month arrives – and this goes for everyone – those who are blessed to perform the ḥajj should have prepared for this journey months beforehand.

In the 12th month of the lunar calendar, Dhū’l Ḥijjah, the respected companions of the Noble Prophet used to engage in copious amounts of worship. This was not limited to those taking part in the ḥajj, but rather, even those who had not been fortunate to partake in such a life-altering experience intensified their worship of Allah during this final month of the Islamic year.

Some traditions tell us that certain days in the month of Dhū’l Ḥijjah even excel over the days of Ramaḍān and when we keep in mind the important occasions such as ʿArafah and Ghadeer when Islam was perfected and the bounties of Allah were completed, it is easy to understand why this month is so special, Allah says in the Quran:

الْیَوْمَ أَکْمَلْتُ لَکُمْ دِینَکُمْ وَ أَتْمَمْتُ عَلَیْکُمْ نِعْمَتِی وَ رَضِیتُ لَکُمُ الْإِسْلامَ دِیناً

Today I have perfected your religion for you, and I have completed My blessing upon you, and I have approvedIslam as your religion.

Those seeking spiritual perfection will prepare for Dhū’l Ḥijjah even before the month arrives – and this goes for everyone – those who are blessed to perform the ḥajj should have prepared for this journey months beforehand, and those who have not been fortunate to make the pilgrimage this year will also prepare for their own spiritual journey throughout the month of Dhū’l Ḥijjah to reap maximum benefit.
