Common Mistakes During The First Ten Days Of Dhul-Hijja
The first ten days of Dhul-Hijja are the days of blessings and mercy. From their very beginning we should increase our worship and do our best to get closer to the Almighty. However, it is paramount to avoid falling in the following common mistakes during these days.
1 - Not to pay attention to the importance and blessings of these days and let them pass as any casual days. Muslims should know that there are no days in which righteous deeds are more beloved to Allah than these ten days.
2 - To be indifferent and not to praise ,pray and supplicate. Many people fall in this mistake and they do not increase their supplications , Tasbeeh and Dhikr as well as night prayers . However, from the very beginning of these days Muslims should increase their Du'aa and prayers for the Almighty says ( and mention the Name of Allah on appointed days (i.e. 10th, 11th, 12th, and 13th day of Dhul-Hijjah)," ('Al-Hajj : 28).
3 - Women should avoid Takbeer loudly for it has not been reported that the mothers of the previous believers used to do so. Their voice must be unheard and we should avoid falling in such a mistake.
4 - New manners to say Tkbeer have been introduced as false innovations, one has to avoid saying Takbeer as instructed by these formulae. There is only one manner to say Takbeer that is:
" Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, la ilaha illa Allah wallahu akbar ,walillah alhamd ".
Allah is the greatest, Allah is the greatest, there is no god but Allah, and Allah is the greatest and to Allah is all praise.
5 - fasting the days of Tachrik, and this is undesirable as it has been reported that the Prophet ( peace and blessings of Allah be upon him ) said that these days are a the Muslims Eid, thus we should eat and drink during them.
6 - fasting a day or two or three days before paying a penalty of the days that we did not fast during Ramadan. We should pay the penalty and fast the days we missed in Ramadan before fasting during these days .
