Dear Brothers and Sisters, Assalamu alaykum wa rahmatullah wa barakatuhu!
Based on completing 30 days of Dhul-Qadah, the month of Dhul-Hijjah started on the evening of July 10th, and Yaum-e-Arafat will be on Monday, July 19, 2021. Accordingly, Eid-ul-Adha will be on Tuesday, July 20, 2021.
The Prophet Mohammed (peace and blessings be upon him) said the following about the first ten days of Dhul Hijjah: “There are no days in which righteous deeds are more beloved to Allah than these ten days." The people asked, "Not even Jihad for the sake of Allah?" The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) responded, "Not even Jihad for the sake of Allah, except in the case of a man who went out to fight, giving himself and his wealth up for the cause, and came back with nothing.” (Bukhari).

(Allah is great, Allah is great. There is no god but Allah. Allah is great, Allah is great. And all praises are for Allah).
The Prophet (PBUH) said, "There is no deed that is better in the sight of Allah or more greatly rewarded than a good deed done in the (first) ten days of Dhul Hijjah:". It was asked, "Not even Jihad for the sake of Allah?" The Prophet (PBUH) replied, "Not even Jihad for the sake of Allah, unless a man goes out himself for Jihad taking his wealth with him and does not come back with anything."
