Importance of First Ten Days of the Sacred Jilhajj Month:
The first ten days of Zulhijjah are among the most magnificent days in Islamic calendar. Noor-e-Mujassam, Habeebullah, Huzur Pak Swallallahu ‘Alaihi Wa Sallam Dictated, “One fast during these days is equal to the fasting of one complete year, and the ibadah (worship) of one night during this period is equal to the Ibadah in the “Lailatul-Qadr”. Sub’haanAllah!
Al-Bukhari Rwadiallahu Ta’ala Anhu narrated from Ibn Abbas Rwadiallahu ta’ala Anhu, that Noor-e-Mujassam, Habeebullah, Huzur Pak Swallallahu ‘Alaihi Wa Sallam Dictated, “There are not any days in which righteous deeds done in them are more beloved to Allah than these days, i.e. the ten days (of Jilhajj).

Today, Muslims are being assaulted and insulted in every step due to staying away from Islam. As the large portion of the Muslims are greatly careless of acquiring `Ilm, so they lack the ‘Ilm of complete Deen. The reasons of staying away from Islam of the Muslims are the negligence of Muslims as well as the evil scheme of the Kaafir-Mushrik. The vast trap of their conspiracy is laid on our religious, economical, social, family affairs and even in all daily necessary stuffs. Day to day time of Muslims is determined by maintaining the reference of Greenwich Time of the British. Though for Muslims, Ka’aba Shareef is the guide for all the matters.
Allah Pak declares in Suratul Al-imran (Ayat 96) Verily, the first House of ibadat (worship), fixed for mankind, and was that at Bakkah (Makkah), full of blessings and guidance for the mankind and jinn.
At present, (local) time of different regions of the world has been fixed considering the time of Greenwich as the standard time; not only that, the world is divided into different longitudinal lines keeping the ‘0’ degree longitudinal line along the position of the Greenwich. The ‘0’ degree longitudinal line is called Prime Meridian. Whereas, the time of whole world should be determined by considering only the sacred Ka’aba Shareef as the centre and the position of Ka’aba Shareef will be the ‘0’ degree longitude (Prime Meridian) of the world.
So called British Royal Observatory was founded on 1675. The meridian along the Greenwich was chosen as Prime Meridian on 1884. It is not the case that the prime meridian was imagined along Greenwich as a famous and historical place. In fact, two reasons are noteworthy. At first, USA was using Greenwich as prime meridian for their time zone even before 1884. As a result, their advantage is that they acquired compliance from their trusted countries in the conference of fixing prime meridian for all. Secondly, once the British were able to extend their domination to some extent on earth and so, they, with assistance of United States, had imposed over the world the matter of determining time from Greenwich till the present time. Although, even before Greenwich, Brussels, Copenhagen, Alexandria, Jerusalem, Lisbon, Madrid, Oslo, Paris, Rome, Stockholm, Ujein- all these areas were also used as Prime Meridian. Not only that, long before all these areas, Makkah Shareef was also used as a prime meridian. It is clear that only for political cause rather than any historical reason Greenwich has been considered as Prime Meridian.
The importance of Ka’aba Shareef is boundless to all the Ahle Kitaab including the Jews and the Christians. So, considering Ka’aba
Ka’aba Shareef is the most ancient place on earth. All over the world, Ka’aba Shareef is known to everyone and is considered with significance. In different countries of the world, there are more or less Muslims who perform their Swalat facing toward the Ka’aba Shareef. Besides that, the Jews and Christians are also informed about the position, respect and reverence, historical importance of Ka’aba Shareef as there are descriptions about Ka’aba Shareef in Tawrwat Shareef and Injil Shareef.
After the flood during the time of Hazrat Noo’h ‘Alaihis Salaam, Hazrat Ibrwahim ‘Alaihis Salaam rebuilt this Sacred Ka’aba Shareef. The two respectable Awlaad(sons) of Hazrat Ibrwahim ‘Alaihis Salaam, Hazrat Ismaail ‘Alaihis Salaam and Hazrat Is-haq ‘Alaihis Salaam were also Nabee of Allah Pak. Saiyidul Mursaleen, Imaamul Mursaleen, Habeebullah Huzur Pak Swallallahu ‘Alaihi Wa Sallam makes Mubaarak Tashreef from the Respectable Descendents of Hazrat Ismaeel ‘Alaihis Salaam; and from Hazrat Is-haQ ‘Alaihis Salaam and from His Descendents was born Hazrat Moosa ‘Alaihis Salaam and later came Hazrat ‘Eesa ‘Alaihis Salaam. So, the importance of Ka’aba Shareef is unlimited to all the Ahle Kitaab including the Jews and the Christians.
Today, there are about 700 crore of people in the world. Civilizations of thousands and thousands of years have passed away on this earth. There are many countries, many nations and many languages in this world. Hazrat Aadam ‘Alaihis Salaam is the ancient father of the people of all colors, all the communities and all the nations. He is the first human being and Nabee. There is no existence of any history and there is no history older than the history of things related to Him. Hazrat Aadam ‘Alaihis Salaam first built up the sacred Ka’aba Shareef. If any place is to be selected considering its historic significance, then the first priority will be Baitullah Shareef or Ka’aba Shareef and no places on this earth can be more ancient than this place. So, not the Greenwich rather considering Ka’aba Shareef as the centre, the time regions of the world needed to be fixed.
The Custodian of the two holy Masjids should take all necessary steps for fixing up the Prime meridian over the Ka’aba Shareef and all the Muslims of the world should come forward on this issue.
