The first ten days of Dhul Hijjah are venerated days. Allah swore by them in His Book, and swearing by a thing is indicative of its importance and great benefit. Good deeds during these days are beloved to Allah.

Allah ﷻ says,

وَالْفَجْرِ ۞ وَلَيَالٍ عَشْرٍ ۞

❝By the dawn; By the ten nights (i.e. the first ten days of the month of Dhulhijjah).❞ [al-Fajr 89:1-2].
