Waterloo Masjid: Eid ul Adha salat schedule - Fri. Nov. 27, 2009

Dhul-Hijjah & Eid ul-Adha

The moon for the month of Dhul-Hijjah has been sighted so the first of Dhul-Hijjah is on Wednesday, Nov 18th.

Hence, the Day of Arafat will be on Thursday, Nov 26th; and Eid ul-Adha will be on Friday, Nov 27th insha'Allah.

More information about Eid Prayers time and location will be updated shortly.

Virtues of the first 10 Days of Dhul-Hijjah:

Ibn 'Umar reported that the Messenger of Allaah (s) 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 tahlil (There is no deity worthy of worship but Allaah : Laa ilaaha illallaah), takbir (Allaah is the greatest : Allaahu Akbar) and tahmid (All praise is due to Allaah : alhumdulillaah) a lot [on those days]." [Reported by Ahmad]

Abu Hurairah relates that the Messenger of Allaah (s) said, "There are no days more loved to Allaah for you to worship Him therein than the ten days of Dhul Hijja. Fasting any day during it is equivalent to fasting one year and to offer salatul tahajjud (late-night prayer) during one of its nights is like performing the late night prayer on the night of power. [i.e., Lailatul Qadr]." [Reported by at-Tirmidhi, Ibn Majah, and al-Baihaqi]

Narrated Ibn 'Umar: On the Day of Nahr (10th of Dhul-Hijja), the Messenger (s) stood in between the Jamrat during his Hajj and said, "This is the greatest Day (i.e. 10th of Dhul-Hijjah)." The Messenger (s) started saying repeatedly, "O Allaah! Be Witness (I have conveyed Your Message)." He then bade the people farewell. The people said, "This is Hajjat-al-Wada." [Bukhari]

Fasting on the Day of Arafah:

Abu Qatadah reported that the Messenger of Allaah (s) said, "Fasting on the day of Arafah is an expiation for two years, the year preceding it and the year following it. Fasting the day of Ashurah is an expiation for the year preceding it." [This is related by "the group," except for al-Bukhari and at-Tirmidhi]

Hafsah reported, "There are five things that the Messenger (s) never abandoned: fasting the day of 'Ashurah, fasting the [first] 10 [days of Dhul-Hijjah], fasting 3 days of every month and praying two rak'ah before the dawn prayer." [This is related by Ahmad and an-Nasa'i]
