Amaals (deeds) to be performed in the month of Dhul Hijjah

The first 10 days of Dhul Hijjah are the most beloved days in the sight of Allah. One can perform certain amaals in order to benefit from these blessed days. This was the custom of our pious predecessors who would capitalize on days like these, engaging in more Ibadah and contemplation.
The following are certain amaals prescribed by the Awliyah for anyone wishing to utilize these days:

AMAALS FOR FIRST 10 DAYS OF DHU’L HIJJAH 4 RAKATS (UNITS) NAFL (OPTIONAL) PRAYER INSTRUCTIONS:
• This nafl namaz should be read in the last part of the night (Tahajjud time)
• Read Suratul Fatihah in each rakat as normal
• After reciting surah Fatihah read the following:
• Ayatul Qursi (x3)
• Suratul Ikhlas (x3)
• Suratul Falaq (x1)
• Suratun Nas (x1)
• After the Nafal Namaz read some Tasbih (SubhanAllah, Alhamdulillah etc..) then Supplicate (Dua) to the Almighty.

REWARDS FOR CARRYING OUT THIS ACT
• Reward for doing Hajj
• Reward of visiting the beloved Prophet, Peace and Blessings be upon him
• Whatever he/she wants (Lawful) Allah will give them

IF PERSON IS ABLE TO READ FOR ALL 10 NIGHTS THEN THERE IS EXTRA REWARD
• He/she is given a station in Jannatul Firdous
• All his/her sins are forgiven
• He/She will start fresh as if they were just born today

FASTING
One should fast in these 10 blessed days especially:
• The day before Arafa and on the day of Arafa (8th and 9th day)
• One should Pray as much as possible
• Do as many good deeds in these 10 days
• Stop sinful acts which he/she was committing (i.e, listening to music etc.)
