    Wa salaam,

    The Companions who could not perform hajj, tried to increase their worship during these ten days of hajj, whether it meant more prayers or increased fasting. It has become especially common over here at least, that people at least fast in the Day of Arafat, which is the day that precedes eid-ul-adha.

    Also, you should pay special attention to performing your qurbani. This is a very strong sunnah and should never be missed, provided one can afford it.

    1. The pilgrimage occurs from the 8th to 12th day of Dhu al-Hijjah. This Monday, we are in the 3rd of Dhu al-Hijjah.

    2. Arafat is the last day before the Eid of Adha begins. This eid is actually 3 days.

    3. Qurbani is the sacrifice that takes place on Eid. Since the time of Prophet Ibrahim (AS) onwards, the pilgrims brought their sacrificial animals to Mecca. This act symbolizes the momentous event when Ibrahim (AS) brought his son Ishmael (AS) before the Kaaba to sacrifice him for God. God, in turn, saved the son of Ishmael (AS) abd blessed Ibrahim (AS) to such extents that God made him Imam or the religious leader of all mankind. This act is meant to serve as a reminder that man is ever ready to sacrifice his most blessed possessions for the sake of God ALmighty.

    Those that are not at hajj, the Prophet (S) told them to sacrifice an animal on the day of Eidh as well. It is for this very same purpose.

    4. You should avoid sins no matter what. A sin is a sin.
