Assalamu Alaikum Hazrat. Please confirm. Which, 10 days are more virtuous in the eyes of Allah?



In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.





Some scholars lean towards the opinion that the first 10 days of Dhul Hijjah are better, however, the majority understand that the last ten days of Ramadan are more virtuous.


Scholars, later on, provided the third understanding to balance the two aforementioned opinions: the first ten days of Dhul Hijjah are more virtuous than the last ten days of Ramadan, however, the last ten nights of Ramadan are more virtuous than the first ten nights of Dhul Hijjah.


Seeing as the last ten of Ramadan include Laylatul Qadr, and the first ten of Dhul Hijjah include The Day of Arafah.[1]



And Allah SWT knows best.
