A ten on Ten: Fasting your way to success

“The Prophet Muhammad used to fast on the first nine days of Dhul Hijjah, the day of Ashura, three days each month, the first Monday of the month and two Thursdays.” [Abu Dawood]

He ﷺ was asked about fasting on the day of Arafah. He said:

“It expiates the sins (minor) of the past year and the coming year.”  [Muslim]

We all know about fasting on the Day of Arafah, but as mentioned before it’s Sunnah to fast the first eight days as well.

This year, why not set your alarm for suhoor each morning? It’s a wonderful way to stay focused and mindful of your goals during these spiritually significant days.

Here’s Your Challenge:

  • Make a firm commitment to keep fasts for all nine days.
  • Set your suhoor alarm each morning to ensure you wake up for suhoor.
  • Use this time of fasting to nourish your soul through increased acts of worship, reflection, and seeking forgiveness.
  • Take time to reflect on your fasting experience and set intentions for continued growth and spiritual development beyond Dhul Hijjah. 

Let this be a springboard for positive change in your life.

This year, let’s come together to make this Dhul Hijjah more special, one effort a day. #AZilhajjToRemember
