8. It is sunnah for those intending Qurbaani not to clip their nails nor trim their hair from the beginning of the month of Dhul Hijja till their qurbaani animal is slaughtered.

عَن أُمِّ سَلَمَة رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنهَا عَنِ النَّبِي صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيهِ وَسَلَّمَ قَالَ مَنْ كَانَ لَهُ ذِبْحٌ يَذْبَحُهُ فَإِذَا أُهِلَّ هِلَالُ ذِي الْحِجَّةِ، فَلَا يَأْخُذَنَّ مِنْ شَعْرِهِ، وَلَا مِنْ أَظْفَارِهِ شَيْئًا حَتَّى يُضَحِّيَ (مسلم 2/160)

Hadhrat Umme Salamah (Radhiallahu Anha) reports that Nabi (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: “Whoever intends making Qurbaani, then he should refrain from cutting his hair and clipping his nails from the time the crescent (of Dhul Hijja) is sighted till he completes his Qurbaani.

9. Takbeer-e-Tashreeq should be recited by both males and females from the Fajr of the 9th of Dhul Hijja till Asr on the 13th of Dhul Hijja. The males will recite it audibly while the females will recite it softly after every Fardh salaah. The Takbeer-e-Tashreeq is as follows:

اَللهُ أَكْبَر اللهُ أكْبَر، لَا إِلَهَ اِلَّا اللهُ اللهُ أكْبَر، اَللهُ أَكْبَر وَلِلَّهِ الْحَمْد

عَن عَلِيِّ بْنِ أَبِي طَالِبٍ رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنهُ أَنَّهُ كَانَ يُكَبِّرُ مِن صَلاَة ِالفَجْرِ مِن يَومِ عَرَفَةَ إِلَى صَلاَةِ العَصْرِ مِنْ آخِرِ أَيَّامِ التَّشْرِيق (كتاب الآثار ص120)


It is reported from Hadhrat Ali (Radhiallahu Anhu) that he would recite the Takbeer-e-Tashreeq from the Fajr salaah on the day of Arafa (9th Dhul Hijja) till the Asr salaah on the last day of Tashreeq (13th Dhul Hijja).

10. One should increase the recitation of the following azkaar during these days:

سُبْحَانَ الله ، الحَمْدُ لِلَّه ، لَا اِلَهَ إلَّا الله ، اَللهُ اَكْبَر

عَن ابن عَبَّاسٍ رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهُمَا قَالَ : قَالَ رَسُولُ اللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيهِ وَ سَلَّم : مَا مِن أَيَّامٍ أَعْظَمُ عِندَ اللهِ وَلَا أَحَبُّ إِلَيهِ الْعَمَلُ فِيهِنَّ مِن أَيَّامِ الْعَشرِ فَأَكْثِرُوا فِيهِنَّ مِنَ التَّسبِيحِ وَالتَّحْمِيدِ وَالتَّكْبِيرِ وَالتَّهْلِيل (الترغيب والترهيب 2/150)

Hadhrat ibn Abbaas (Radhiallahu Anhuma) reports that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: “There are no days in the year wherein the worship of Allah Ta’ala is greater (in reward) and more beloved to Him than the first ten days of Dhul Hijjah. Therefore increase the recitation of tasbeeh, tahmeed, takbeer and tahleel. i.e.

سُبْحَانَ الله ، الحَمْدُ لِلَّه ، لَا اِلَهَ إلَّا الله ، اَللهُ اَكْبَر


11. One must perform Qurbaani if Qurbaani is waajib on him.

عَن عَائِشَةَ رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنهَا قَالَت : قَالَ رَسُولُ اللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيهِ وَسَلَّمَ : مَا عَمِلَ ابْنُ آدَمَ مِن عَمَلٍ يَومَ النَّحْرِ أَحَبَّ إلى اللهِ مِن إِهرَاقِ الدَّمِ وَإنَّهُ لَيَأتِي يَومَ القِيَامَةِ بِقُرُونِها وَأشْعَارِها وَأَظْلَافِها وَإنَّ الدَّم لَيَقَعُ مِن اللهِ بِمَكَانٍ قَبْلَ أَن يَقَعَ بِالأَرْضِ فَطِيبُوا بِهَا نَفْسًا. (مشكوة المصابيح 1/128)

Hadhrat Aaisha (Radhiallahu Anha) reports that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: “There is nothing dearer to Allah Ta’ala during the days of Qurbaani than the spilling of blood (i.e. the sacrificing of animals). The sacrificed animal shall come on the Day of Qiyaamah with its horns, hair and hooves (to be weighed) .The sacrifice is accepted by Allah Ta’ala before the blood reaches the ground. Therefore carry out the Qurbaani in a condition that your heart is pleased and happy to fulfil the command of Allah Ta’ala.
