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:
