Dahw al-ardh day

Dahwa al-Ardh is a day to seek forgiveness and repent: Imam Khamenei

The 25th day of this the month of Dhul-Qa'dah is Dahwa al-Ardh which is a blessed day. The 15th of Dhul-Qada eve is one of the blessed nights of the year when certain religious acts are practiced. Dhul-Qada Sundays are days to seek forgiveness and repentance.

These days have coincided with the auspicious days of the month of Dhul-Qa’da. The blessings of the month of Dhul-Qada are many. The auspicious month of Dhul-Qada is the first haraam month. The 11th day of this month is the birthday anniversary of the eighth Imam—Imam Ali Ibn Musa al-Ridha (May thousands of greetings and praise be upon him) and the beginning of the ten-day Veneration Celebration. The 23rd day of this month is the day to visit the shrine of Imam Ridha (peace and greetings be upon him). The 25th day of this month is Dahwa al-Ardh which is a blessed day. The 15th of Dhul-Qada eve is one of the blessed nights of the year when certain religious acts are practiced. Dhul-Qada Sundays are days to seek forgiveness and repentance.

On these days, there is a recommended religious ritual that the late Hajj Mirza Jawad Aqa Maleki quotes in al-Muraqibat. In this book, he narrates the Holy Prophet (s.w.a.) as saying to his companions, "‘which one of you is willing to repent?' Everyone said that they are willing. Apparently, it was the month of Dhul-Qada." According to this narration, the Prophet then says, "You should perform this prayer on every Sunday of this month."

What I want to say is that, the month of Dhul-Qada - which is the first haraam month - is full of blessings. There are very blessed and auspicious days and nights in the next three months. Therefore, we should benefit from them.
