Ibn Abbas reported: “The Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, said, ‘No good deed done on other days is superior to what is done on these first ten days of Dhul-Hijjah.’ Then some companions of the Prophet said, ‘Not even struggling (jihad) in the cause of Allah?’ The Prophet said, ‘Not even struggling in the cause of Allah, except in the case of a man who goes out with his life and wealth in danger and returns with nothing.’ ”

The first ten days of Dhul Hijjah are the best days of the year and days in which good deeds are most beloved to Allah (swt).
The Messenger of Allah ﷺ said, "There are no days in which righteous deeds are more beloved to Allah than these ten days (i.e. The first ten days of Dhul Hijjah)." [Al-Bukhârî, 2/457]
We ask Allah (swt) to bless us all abundantly, to keep us all firm as we uphold the difficult tasks that have been placed upon the leaders of the community, and to accept our deeds in these noble first ten days of Dhul-Hijjah

The Islamic Council of Victoria has been collecting Zakat for the past 2 years for local distribution. We are experiencing an ever growing need from local Muslims from all quarters who are facing economic hardship. In particular in the year to date (2013) there has been an incredible influx of refugees released into the community with very little financial capacity. The Muslim community via the ICV is attempting to assist as much as we can.
Please consider contributing part of your Zakat to local Muslims through the ICV Zakat Fund. Please enquire further at the ICV Office (03 9328 2067) or simply transfer funds to BSB: 063122 – Account Number: 10 701 107 – CBA.
