Recommended Fasts for Zul Hijjah 2010
Here are suggestions for dates for doing your fasts during the month of Zul Hijjah. Although fasting during Zul Hijjah is not mandatory on Muslims, it reaps many benefits for those doing it.
The Holy Prophet, Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam, has said:
"One fast during these days is equal to the fasting of one complete year, and the worship of one night during this period is equal to the worship in the "Lailatul-Qadr".
It has also been mentioned that there are four months that are sacred in the Islamic calendar. They are Rajab, Zul Qa'dah, the first ten days of Zul Hijjah, and Muharram.
If we are able to, then we should make the extra effort to perform the fast during Zul Hijjah.
