Blessed First Ten Days of Hajj

Bismillahirahmanirahim

Blessings be upon you O beloved Muhammad

who guides us through the Hajj of this immense Life,

                                    who guides us through the Hajj

of the seven levels of our self,

the deserts of separation

                                          and the valleys of weeping, the mountains of hope

                                         and the dawn of certainty,

to reach the Shrines of our heart and our spirit,

                           finding the One Who awaits us

and Who calls us to return

Blessings be upon your precious Family and noble

           Companions and upon all the Prophets, Mothers and

Messengers, and all the souls who have made this

            immense journey from the Source and back to the

                                  Source

 

And proclaim the Pilgrimage for humanity

They will come to thee on foot and

On every kind of mount

Lean on account of their journey

Through deep and distant mountain highways,

So that they may experience and witness the grace and blessings for them,

And celebrate the Name of Allah through the days appointed over the cattle He has provided for them.

So eat therefrom and feed the poor and distressed.                          

Hajj, 22:27-28

 

 

By the dawn

And the ten nights

And the even and the odd

And the night when it passes away...

Is there not in these a manifest promise

For those who perceive?                 

Fajr, 89:1-5

 

May we calm our hearts and focus our hearts in these blessed ten nights and ten days, culminating in the Day of Arafat and the Eid, on Thursday and Friday of next week.
