Importance Of Zul Hijjah

Importance Of Zul Hijjah: There is no such month in the whole world that can match its significance with the importance of Zul Hijjah. This month holds the basic importance for the fact that during this whole month the Muslim gets the chance to get hold over the house of Allah in Saudia Arabia.

This month marks the arrival of the Hajj happenings. The whole month of Zul Hijjah brings along the passion and zeal in the Muslims for getting closer to the God and makes a fresh and everlasting relationship with the God and Holy Prophet. Those people who perform the Hajj have been named as Pilgrims. This month is even considered to be the month of blessings.

The increased significance of this month is much evident from the fact that those Muslims who cannot offer the prayers or the Hajj they can get the blessings of the God in the first three days because those ten days of the starting are measured to be scared and blissful.

Holy Prophet (PBUH) has stated that: There are no days in which righteous deeds are more beloved to Allah than these ten days.” The people asked, “Not even Jihad for the sake of Allah?” He said, “Not even Jihad for the sake of Allah, except in the case of a man who went out to fight giving himself and his wealth up for the cause, and came back with nothing (Bukhari).

This month even holds the importance of the fasting as well. The process of the fasting is undertaken on the ninth day of the Zul Hijjah. This fast will help the Muslim to clear out all the sins for the next two years. Holy Prophet used to perform the fast each year.

This month even symbolizes the arrival of the festival Eid ul Azha that is the day of the sacrifice in the remembrance of the Abraham readiness to sacrifice his own son. In other words, Hajj is the sacrifice of personal comfort and wealth that the pilgrims offer.

On the whole after this detail discussion it has been concluded that all the wholesome experiences of the month of Zul Hijjah are beyond descriptions and discussion as the person would certainly fall short of the words by describing the significance of this month.

It is just about the total and actual purification inward and outward. When the Muslim returns to the sea of daily corruption and impurities ha can easily sail on the boat of faith to the everlasting life of the heaven because God is with him.
