Any good deed done in these 10 days is better than good deeds done in any other days of the year. Let that be both a motivator to increase your acts of worship and a reminder of why it’s a good time to do so.  
Daily virtue
Daily hadith
Abu Huraira reported: The Prophet ﷺ said,
God Almighty said: O son of Adam, busy yourself with my worship and I will fill your heart with riches and alleviate your poverty. If you do not do so, I will fill your hands with problems and never alleviate your poverty.
Tirmidhi ]
Daily dhikr
Takbir!
Keep those
Allahu akbars going throughout the day today. This simple piece of dhikr is among the most beloved supplications. 
Set a goal to recite a realistic number of takbirs throughout your day. 
اللهُ أكْبرُ​​​​​​​
God is greater.

Allahu Akbar ]
Daily deed
Deliberate Actions
A famous hadith reads, 
Actions are [judged] by their intentions, and everyone will get what they intended.

If we plan to take action during these sacred days, then we first need to deliberate on our intentions. What do you hope to accomplish? How exactly will you incorporate more dhikr, fasting, and good works into this busy time before Eid? Think about it, write down your intentions and goals, and have a plan ready so you can more easily achieve them. Intentions set the tone, but actions complete the deed!
Daily charity
How often do we use our phones to access edifying content? It’s not easy; there’s a whole lot of room for distraction and not many accessible places to turn for Islamic content. But with Dhul-Hijjah upon us, it’s a good time to slow down and seek out those places so we can better spend our time learning, reflecting, and remembering God. Yaqeen offers a mobile app that makes all of its content—lectures, publications, infographics, and more—reachable right from your home screen. Download it for Dhul-Hijjah, or donate to help others benefit from Yaqeen’s content in an accessible way! 
Donate to improve our mobile app and new features.
Daily fun fact
The ayahs of Surat Al-Fajr, above, use night to refer to the 10 days of Dhul-Hijjah. The words for “day” (ayaam) and “night” (layal) are at times used interchangeably in the Qur’an.
