Dhul-Hijjah is the twelfth and final month in the Islamic calendar. It is the month in which the Hajj pilgrimage takes place.
Saudi Arabia has announced that Sunday, August 12, 2018 is the first day of the month of Dhul-Hijjah.
Accordingly, the day of Arafat, the peak and main pillar of the Hajj will be on Monday, August 20, 2018 the 9th of Dhul-Hijjah 1439 AH.
Eid Al Adha will be on Tuesday, August 21, 2018.
We pray that all the pilgrims will have a blessed and safe Hajj. We also pray that all the Muslims will benefit from these sacred days by reflecting and embracing the lessons of commitment and sacrifice from the life of Prophet Abraham (pbuh).
(O Muhammad) Proclaim the Hajj (Pilgrimage) to all people. They will come to you on foot and on every kind of swift mount, emerging from every deep mountain pass. Quran 22:27
Ibn Abbas reported that the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) said: “There are no days in which righteous deeds are more beloved to God than these ten days (first ten days of Dhul-Hijjah.)”
