So that means (inshAllah),

  • Thursday, September 25, 2014 is the first (1st) day of Dhul Hijjah (1435)
  • Thursday, October 2, 2014 – is the first day of Hajj (8th of Dhul Hijjah)
  • Friday, October 3, 2014 – is the day of Arafat (9th of Dhul Hijjah)
  • Saturday, October 4, 2014 – is Eid ul Adha (10th Dhul Hijjah)

Please visit my previous post here for a graphical calendar of dates above. Also a quick reminder from another previous post,

“It is recommended for a person who has made his clear intention to offer the sacrifice to observe” certain “restrictions from the beginning of the month of Dhul Hijjah until the sacrifice is made. He is simply required not to take anything off his hair or body. Hence, the restrictions are not to cut his hair or clip his nails.”
(excerpt from Dhul Hijjah – First Ten Days)
