Look at their names, Maulana, Shaykh, Qadhi and Qadri :-) These Mullahs present 'jewels' from the disastrous NUMBER TWO ISLAM (N2I).
Thank you Shaykh Saheb for providing us with a great sample of N2I, the Man-made, Counterfeit, Conjecture-based, Imamist, Ajami, Alien, Irrational, Ritualistic, Superstitious, Fatalistic, Mind killer, "Thawaab"-oriented, Conterproductive, Detrimental, Good-for-Nothing Religion aptly called by Allama Mashriqi as "Maulvi Ka Ghalat Mazhab" (Mullah's wrong religion)!

Best Ten Days Of The Year
--the first ten days of Dhul Hijjah
May Allah SWT help us to make the most of these days and accept all our good deeds and reward us with Jannah al Firdaus, Ameen!
Short talk by Shaykh Yasir Qadhi explaining the merit of these days and what acts to perform:
How can we try to make the most of these days that are beloved to Allah SWT:
Try to fast from the 1st to 9th of Dhul Hijjah if you can, but if you cannot, then at least try to fast the Day of Arafat (the 9th day, day before Eid). It depends on the moonsighting, but tentatively the 1st should be on Wednesday Nov 18th, 2009. This will make Arafat Day on Nov 26th
2. Do lots of TAKBEER
Spend your time doing lots of dhikr, saying Takbeer (Allahu Akbar), Tahmeed (Alhamdulillah) , Tahleel (La ilaa ha ill-Allah) and Tasbeeh (SubhanAllah) . Also recite the takbeerat on the first ten days, as well as the three days of Eid. The takbeer is "Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, laa ilaaha ill-Allah, Allahu Akbar, wa Lillaah il-hamd (Allah is Most Great, Allah is Most Great, there is no god worthy of worship except Allah; Allah is Most Great and to Allah be praise).
3. Read as much QURAN as you can
Whatever you normally read, try to increase it and read a bit more each day. Read the translation as well if you dont understand the Arabic and take time to reflect on its meaning and see how you can apply the words of Allah SWT in your daily life
4. Make lots of DUA
Remember that Allah SWT always near and He always hears the suplication of everyone who calls on Him
5. Makes lots of ISTAGHFAR
Make sincere repentence to Allah SWT for your mistakes and give up all things that Allah SWT doesnt like
6. Increase in all general GOOD DEEDS
Give sadaqa, be good to parents and family members, help the needy, visit the sick..
7. Make a SACRIFICE
Make arrangements for the sacrifice of a cow, sheep whatever. Read the story of Prophet Ibrahim and his sacrifice and ponder on the lessons on this story
8. HAJJ AND UMRAH
Well....if you havent already made plans for this, its a little to late now
9. QIYAM AL LAYL
Try to pray at least 2 rakat in the last 3rd of the night. This is the time when Allah SWT descends down each night and says "Who is saying a prayer to Me that I may answer it? Who is asking something of Me that I may give it him? Who is asking forgiveness of Me that I may forgive him?" (hadith in Sahih Bukhari and Muslim). If you are fasting, an easy way to do it is just wake up 15 minutes earlier than usual for suhoor!
10. Encourage others to do good deeds in these days as well...Insha Allah you will share in their reward, when you call them to goodness! If these points were of any benefit for you, please make dua for me as well!!
It was narrated from Ibn ‘Abbaas (may Allaah be pleased with him) that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “There are no days on which righteous deeds are more beloved to Allaah than these ten days.” They said: “Not even jihad for the sake of Allaah?” He said: “Not even jihad for the sake of Allaah, unless a man goes out himself for jihad taking his wealth with him and does not come back with anything.” Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 2/457
