The Sacred Month | Dhul Qa’da

Surely, the number of months according to Allah is twelve (as written) in the Book of Allah on the day He created the heavens and the Earth, of which there are Four Sacred Months. [Quran 9:36]

The four sacred months are: Rajab, Dhul Qa’da, Dhul Hijjah, and Muharram.

Don’t Harm Others

Dhul-Qa’dah is a sacred month in which we are encouraged to be at peace with each other.

Let Dhul-Qa’dah be a month of healing your relationships, whether at home or work. Try not to be irritable, short-tempered, or resentful. Be someone who stays in a place of peace rather than participating in negativity, even if it’s just by saying Salam to people.

Good deeds are more rewardable at the Ka’bah and sins are more serious; in the same way, our deeds are heavier on the scales in the sacred months like Dhul Qa’dah.

“Injustice during the Sacred Months is worse and graver than injustice in other months. Verily, injustice is always wrong, but Allah makes things graver than others as He will.” [Tafsir Ibn Kathir]
