This week marks the ten blessed days of dhul-hijjah in the Islamic tradition in which Muslims undertake the holy pilgrimage of Hajj. Although the hajj has been limited this year due to COVID, a number of online resources have emerged to there are still many ways for Muslims to reap the blessings of this month. During this time, Dallas-based Imam Omar Suleiman from Yaqeen Institute recently launched a webinar to study the life of Prophet Ibrahim.
The first ten days of Dhul Hijjah are often referred to as the best ten days of the year. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: “There are no days on which righteous deeds are more beloved to Allah than these ten days.” [Bukhari] The eleventh day is the day of Eid al-Adha, which celebrates the sacrifice Prophet Ibrahim and his son Ismaeel had intended to make for the sake of Allah.
The webinar-lecture series led by Omar Suleiman titled “The Life and Legacy of Ibrahim (as).” In this, the viewer explores the life and legacy of Ibrahim (as) through his narrated stories found in the Quran, and learns how they can develop a personal connection to his story as we welcome dhul-hijjah. Dr. Suleiman has an international platform that reaches Muslims worldwide, and been featured on the Middle East Eye and many other platforms globally for his scholarly contributions.
