Allaah Swears by these 10 Days, odd and even

Allaah swears by these days.

1. By the dawn;
2. By the ten nights (i.e. the first ten days of the month of Dhul-Hijjah),
3. And by the even and the odd .

[al-Fajr, ayat 1-3]

The Prophet (salallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) said,

The ten are the ten days of Dhul-Hijjah and the odd is the Day of Arafah and the even is the Eid.

[Ahmad 3/327, and Bazzar 2286]. Ibn Rajab (rahimahullaah) graded the isnad of this hadeeth as being Hasan.
