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 Friday, August 2, 2019 is the first day of the month of Dhul-Hijjah 1440 AH.
Accordingly, the day of Arafat, the peak and main pillar of the Hajj will be on Saturday, August 10, 2019 the 9th of Dhul-Hijjah 1440 AH.
Eid Al Adha will be on Sunday, August 11, 2019.
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.)”
