In the Islamic calendar, Dhu al Hajjah is regarded as a good month because of the benefits and blessings it bestows upon Muslims. The first ten days of this month are the most beneficial and offer Muslims possibilities that could change their lives. Muslims travel to the holy sites for Hajj, while those who cannot afford Hajj packages instead choose to travel to the holy places for Umrah and to receive the benefits of Islam.
The first ten days of Dhu al Hajjah are the most significant; all other days are secondary. The 10 days of worship make Muslims beloved in the eyes of Allah Almighty. The Holy Prophet advises Muslims to engage in a number of acts of worship throughout these wonderful 10 days. Muslims should practise zikr of Allah and charitable deeds now.
Dhu al Hajjah is a month for worship.
The prayers that ought to be offered during the month of Dhu al-Hijjah are listed below.
Perform Hajj to the House of Allah:
All Muslims who have the financial means to do so must perform the Hajj, which is the Fardh act. From the eighth of Dhu al Hajjah to the thirteenth of Dhu al Hajjah, the Hajj rites begin. The first ten days are regarded as being particularly significant, and Eid-ul-Adha falls inside these ten days. Muslims offer their animals as sacrifices to Allah for his pleasure. According to the guidelines of Islam and the Holy Quran, the Hajj is a chance to atone for past transgressions and to alter one’s life.
Zikr of Allah:
Zikr of Allah is obligatory for Muslims, especially during the first 10 days of Dhu al-Hijjah, which are the most fruitful days.

Every tongue should be engaged in the Zikr of the Almighty Allah and the recitation of the Holy Quran.
Change your lifestyle with the help of worships:
Muslims who make the Hajj with sincere intentions are able to atone for previous misdeeds. According to the Holy Quran, four months are holy. These are Muharram, Rajjab, Dhu al Qadah, and Dhu al Hajj. Muslims who worship throughout these months are closer to Allah and have their past transgressions forgiven since Allah is pleased with their deeds. A Muslim’s lifestyle is changed and his life experiences numerous good changes as a result of performing the Hajj and Umrah.
