Dhul-Hijjah Cheat Sheet (cheating is haram):
In the first ten days of Dhul hijjah, you should increase your
fasting: fast every day if possible
salah: pray every day if possible (no, seriously :))
sadaqah: give in silence and secrecy and also in public
Takbir: say takbir whenever you can!
Religion is good character: be on your best behavior!
Smile: smiling in a brother's (or sister's) face is charity.
Advise: Religon is to give good advice. Enjoin what is good. Give the naseeha for the sake of Allah (SWT).
Remove harms from the path of people
Help others complete their needs: help a neighbor, help a relative.
perfect your actions
qiyam al-layl: which, according to a saheeh hadith, can also cure your body from sickness. Subhanallah.
reading Quran: remember how much you used to read Quran in Ramadan? yeah, like that.
Duaa: Turn to Allah (SWT)
Sacrifice: only on the 9th on Eid
I know this will keep you busy. Alhamdulillah for that.
