*THE MEATY DAYS.*The 11th, 12th and 13th Zul Hijjah are three days of Tashreeq. Days that meat of Qurbani were dried in the sun. Those years, there were no freezers to store meat. So they had to put salt and slice the meat to dry in the sun. These 3 days are days of eating, drinking and intimacy.مصنف ابن أبي شيبة – ()حَدَّثَنَا وَكِيعٌ , عَنْ مُوسَى بْنِ عُبَيْدَةَ , عَنْ مُنْذِرِ بْنِ جَهْمٍ , عَنْ عُمَرَ بْنِ خَلْدَةَ الأَنْصَارِيِّ , عَنْ أُمِّهِ ، قَالَتْ : بَعَثَ النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم عَلِيًّا أَيَّامَ التَّشْرِيقِ يُنَادِي ، إِنَّهَا أَيَّامُ أَكْلٍ وَشُرْبٍ وَبِعَالٍ
In the last Hajj, Rasouloullah Swalallahou `Alaihi Wasallam sent hazrat Ali r.a. during these days of Tashreeq to announce: ‘’These days are days of eating, drinking and intimacy.’’(Musannaf Ibn Abi Shaibah)

تهذيب الآثار – الطبري – )حدثنا خلاد بن أسلم ، قال : حدثنا روح ، قال : حدثنا صالح ، قال : حدثني ابن شهاب ، عن سعيد بن المسيب ، عن أبي هريرة ، أن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم بعث عبد الله بن حذافة يطوف في منى : « لا تصوموا هذه الأيام ، فإنها أيام أكل وشرب وذكر لله
In Tabari: ‘’…eating, drinking and making zikr of Allah.’’(Tabari)Prohibited to fast during these 3 days and also the Eid days.In fact we are mere automaton to listen to every command of Allah Ta`ala. See, at the time Zabah, Rasouloullah Swalallahou `Alaihi Wasallam told his daughter: ‘’O Fatimah, stand up and witness your Qurbani(sacrifice). Because the first drop of blood will erase all your sins that you committed. And say:
إِنَّ صَلاتِي وَنُسُكِي وَمَحْيَايَ وَمَمَاتِي لِلَّهِ رَبِّ الْعَالَمِينَ ، لا شَرِيكَ لَهُ ، وَبِذَلِكَ أُمِرْتُ وَأَنَا أَوَّلُ الْمُسْلِمِينَ
INNA SALATI WA NUSUKI WA MAHYAYA WA MAMATI LILLAHI RABBIL `ALAMIN, LAA SHARIKA LAH, WA BIZALIKA UMIRTOU WA ANA AWALOUL MUSLIMIN.Translation: Verily my salaah, my qurbani, my staying alive and my death are all only for Allah, Lord of universe. He has no partner. And I have been ORDERED TO PERFORM THIS and i am first to be in submission to the command.The earth is not here to be conquered. But rather to establish salaah and ibaadahs over it. Hazrat Mowlana Ibrahim Devla d.b. said so under the hadith where Rasouloullah Swalallahou Alihi Wasallam said: ‘’The whole earth has been made a place of worship for me. My ummati can pray wherever he is(on earth) if salaah time came’’(Bukhari)صحيح البخاري – ()حدثنا يزيد هو ابن صهيب الفقير قال أخبرنا جابر بن عبد اللهأن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم قال أعطيت خمسا لم يعطهن أحد قبلي نصرت بالرعب مسيرة شهر وجعلت لي الأرض مسجدا وطهورا فأيما رجل من أمتي أدركته الصلاة فليصل
 So the earth is not a fighting ground for amassing maximum of power, wealth or territory. But rather an empty place to be filled by the worship Allah Ta`ala. This is why the portion of earth where salaah was prayed will testify in favour of the musalli. The Qur-aan says that the earth will testify whatever actions have been accomplished on it:يَوْمَئِذٍ تُحَدِّثُ أَخْبَارَهَاThat day, the earth will tell all its histories.(Surah 99:3)تفسير القرطبي – ()وفي الترمذي عن أبي هريرة قال: قرأ رسول الله صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ هذه الآية يَوْمَئِذٍ تُحَدِّثُ أَخْبارَها قال: (أتدرون ما أخبارها- قالوا الله ورسوله أعلم، قال: فإن أخبارها أن تشهد على كل عبد أو أمة بما عمل على ظهرها، تقول عمل يوم كذا، كذا وكذا. قال: (فهذه أخبارها). قال: هذا حديث حسن صحيح 
 Rasouloullah Swalallahou `Alaihi Wasallam said: ‘’Its histories are its testimonies for whatever was accomplished on its back by humans…’’(Tirmizi)That is why Rasouloullah Swalallahou `Alaihi Wasallam recommended that we pray in a different places and move from the place we prayed farz salaah(Ibn Majah/Abu Dawood):
سنن ابن ماجه – (حَدَّثَنَا أَبُو بَكْرِ بْنُ أَبِي شَيْبَةَ حَدَّثَنَا إِسْمَعِيلُ ابْنُ عُلَيَّةَ عَنْ لَيْثٍ عَنْ حَجَّاجِ بْنِ عُبَيْدٍ عَنْ إِبْرَاهِيمَ بْنِ إِسْمَعِيلَ عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَعَنْ النَّبِيِّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ قَالَ أَيَعْجِزُ أَحَدُكُمْ إِذَا صَلَّى أَنْ يَتَقَدَّمَ أَوْ يَتَأَخَّرَ أَوْ عَنْ يَمِينِهِ أَوْ عَنْ شِمَالِهِ يَعْنِي السُّبْحَةَ
 Our ummah is not a stagnant ummah. Rather, we are a ummah that should travel around the world to give da`wah to others to enter the fold of Islam. In doing so, the best salaahs can be read in the path of Allah, in distant places where salaah was never read at that particular spot.سنن أبى داود – ()حَدَّثَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ عِيسَى حَدَّثَنَا أَبُو مُعَاوِيَةَ عَنْ هِلَالِ بْنِ مَيْمُونٍ عَنْ عَطَاءِ بْنِ يَزِيدَ عَنْ أَبِي سَعِيدٍ الْخُدْرِيِّ قَالَقَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ الصَّلَاةُ فِي جَمَاعَةٍ تَعْدِلُ خَمْسًا وَعِشْرِينَ صَلَاةً فَإِذَا صَلَّاهَا فِي فَلَاةٍ فَأَتَمَّ رُكُوعَهَا وَسُجُودَهَا بَلَغَتْ خَمْسِينَ صَلَاةً
 I recall of Hazrat Mowlana Tutla sahab r.a. when he was hosting Hazrat Mowlana Manzour Nu`mani r.a.in Stanger. Mowlana Tutla sahab r.a. told Mowlana Manzour Nu`mani r.a. that he would go visit a jamaat in Durban and that he will read Fajr on the way. So Hazrat Mowlana Nu`mani r.a. appreciated his initiative and told him the above hadith where the salaah in the nature or in the forest done with great devotion and sincerity is doubly rewarded than salaah in own Masjid.So during the meaty days, do eat, drink, intimate, read takbeers after farzs and do lots of Zikrullah. And  set some movements weekly to move in the path of Allah for da`wah initiative.
