(An Anthology of Poems for the First Ten Days of Dhul-Hijjah)
Reminders are meant for the believers. They reap the benefits not just in this world and the hereafter. It is my pleasure to present to you this maiden publication from the stables of Ashraf’s scribbles with the theme – “Ten folds-” in commemoration of the first ten days of Dhul Hijjah, which are the best days in the sight of Allah.
Narrated by Ibn `Abbas: The Prophet ( صلى الله عليه وسلمSollah llahu alayhi wa sallam) said, “No good deeds done on other days are superior to those done on these (first ten days of Dhul Hijja).” Then some companions of the Prophet ( صلى الله عليه وسلمSollah llahu alayhi wa sallam) said, “Not even Jihad?” He replied, “Not even Jihad, except that of a man
who does it by putting himself and his property in danger (for Allah’s sake) and
does not return with any of those things.“
It is in this spirit that we made a call for submission of literary pieces that reflect the
theme and it will interest you to know that we have 32 contributors to this anthology submitting 32 wonderful poetic pieces of history, reminders, spiritual guidance, Soul up lifters, secrets of jannah, abundant blessings, shared love and the golden favour of time. These works are eye-openers and again enliven you with the aura of living in perpetual unison with Allah through HIS remembrance.
