This oath substantiates the greatness and sacredness of these ten nights in the eyes of Allah. This is an extraordinary oath; it is very reliable and significant and the wise men can understand that by this oath, Allah too attaches great importance and value to the ten nights of Dhul Hijjah.

The Prophet ṣallallāhu 'alayhi wa sallam (peace and blessings of Allāh be upon him) has said regarding these blessed days:
