Following the Rochdale Council of Mosque’s meeting tonight and confirmed moon sighting it is the 1st of Dhul Hijjah tomorrow.
The day of Hajj will be on Thursday 25th Oct with
Eid ul Adha on Friday 26th Oct.
A gentle reminder of the superiority of these 10 days come from a hadith:
The Messenger of Allah, peace be upon him, said:
“There are no other days that are as great as these in the sight of Allah, the Most Sublime. Nor are there any deeds more beloved to Allah then those that are done in these ten days. So increase in tahlil (to say la illaha illallah), takbir (to say allahu akbar) and tahmid (to say alhumdulillah).” [Reported by at-Tabarani in al-Mu’jum al-Kabir]
