What kinds of worship should be performed? 

While any good deed done for the sake of Allah according to the way He approves will be rewarded immensely during the first ten days, God willing, some of the more specific actions mentioned in the Traditions of the Prophet are fasting and verbal Dhikr (remembrance) of Allah.


The Prophet said,  “One fast during these days is equal to the fasting of one complete year, and the worship of one night during this period is equal to the worship in the Lailatul-Qadr”

It is particularly encouraged to fast on the ninth day of Dhul-Hijjah, known in Arabic as Yawm al-Arafa. The Prophet used to fast on this day. Fasting on this day will expiate a Muslim’s sins for two years.


Dhikr, or the verbal remembrance of Allah, is another meritorious act during these first ten days of Dhul Hijjah. The Prophet encouraged Muslims to recite a lot of Tasbeeh (saying “Subhan Allah”, which means Glory be to God), Tahmeed (saying “Alhamdu lillah” which means Praise be to God) and Takbeer (saying “Allahu akbar” which means God is Greater or God is the Greatest) during this time.

Other good deeds

Generally, all good deeds are rewarded highly at this blessed time. These actions include praying, reading the Quran, making Dua (supplication), giving in charity, and being good to our families.

In addition, seeking Allah’s forgiveness at this time is also encouraged. This means more than just a verbal expression of sorrow for past misdeeds. It also requires a firm resolution to avoid making the same mistakes in the future by giving up bad habits and behavior while sincerely turning to Allah.
