Zilkad month & it’s activities

The month of Zilqad is the 11th month of Hijri. It is also the second month of 3 months of Hajj. Zilkad month is one of the 4 prohibited months in Islam. This month is very important in the history of Islam for various reasons. The beloved Prophet (PBUH) performed all the Umrah in his life in this month of Zilkad.

From the month of Rajab to the month of Shawwal, believing Muslims spend a busy time in continuous worship. For example: Rajab is the month of Allah, the month of plowing the land of worship, the month of more nafal worship. Sha’ban is the month of the Messenger of Allah (PBUH), the month of sowing the seeds of worship; Nisaf is Shaban or Shabbarat and is the month of maximum Nafl fasting and Nafl worship.

Ramadan is the month of the Ummah, the month of harvest, obligatory fasting, Taraweeh prayer, Qiyamullail; The month of the revelation of the Qur’an and the month of being busy in worship. The month of Shawwal is the month of Eid-ul-Fitr, Sadaqatul-Fitr and the prescribed Sunnah of six fasts. Similarly, the two months after the month of Zilqad, the month of Zilhaj and the month of Muharram, are busy months for worship. For example: the month of Zilhaj, the month of Hajj, Eid al-Azha and the month of Qurbani; The month of Muharram is the month of Ashura.

In other words, just as the four months before the month of Zilqad should be busy in worship, so the two months after the month of Zilqad should also be eager for worship. An intermediate month is Zilqad, since the believer gets little time to rest, so this month is called Zulqa’adh (Zilqad) or the month of rest.

Activities of the month of Zilqad: As in every month, observe Nafal fast on the 1st, 10th, 20th, 29th and 30th of the month of Zilqad. On the 13th, 14th and 15th days of the moon, the first Prophet Hazrat  Adam (A.S.), the father of Bij, observes the Sunnah fast. Observance of Sunnah Nabbi Fast every Monday and Thursday of every week.

Fasting Nafal every Friday. Salatut Tasbeeh and praying five daily prayers, Nafl prayers (Tahajjud, Ishraq, Chasht or Duha, Jawal and Awwabeen). Recitation of Quran more and Nafl prayers more. Donate more and more. As a preparation for the 9 Sunnah fasts of the month of Zilhaj and the 10 fasts of the month of Muharram, it is necessary to observe Nafal fasts in this month, and those who have the ability and opportunity, that is, those on whom Hajj is obligatory, should prepare for Hajj and prepare sacrifices.

May Almighty Allah grant us the power of worship in the month of Zilkad and deliver us from various diseases including dengue and corona. Grant us Tawfiq to learn and act from the normal practices and historical events of the month of Zilqad. Amen.
