The First 10 Days of Dhul Hijjah

The first 10 days of Dhul Hijjah are of the most blessed days in the entire Muslim Calendar and are on par with the last 10 nights of Ramadan in their importance and virtue.

* For those following local moon sightings, today is 29 Dhul Qa’dah 1433 and therefore if the moon is sighted tonight (of which there is a high probability that it will be sighted)  then Dhul Hijjah will commence on Wednesday as per the Saudi Announcement. However, if for some reason the moon is not sighted locally then some people may choose to start Dhul Hijjah on Thursday 18 October 2012.
