- Muharram (Arabic: ٱلْمُحَرَّم) is the first month of the Islamic calendar.
- It is one of the four sacred months of the year during when warfare is forbidden. It is held to be the second holiest month, after Ramaḍān. The Tenth day of Muharram is known as the Day of Ashura. Sometimes, as part of the Mourning of Muharram, Shia Muslims practice partial fasting, and Sunni Muslims practice fasting on Ashura.
Muslims mourn the martyrdom of Ḥusayn ibn ʿAlī and his family, honouring the martyrs by prayer and abstinence from joyous events. Shia Muslims fast on the 10th of Muharram but some (children, elderly or sick) don’t eat or drink until Zawal (afternoon) as a part of their mourning for Husayn.In addition there is an important ziyarat book, the Ziyarat Ashura about Husayn ibn Ali. In the Shia sect, it is popular to read this ziyarat on this date.
Al-Bukhaari (1865) frm Ibn ‘Abbaas (may Allah be pleased with him), who said,
The prophet (peace n blessings of Allah be upon him) came to Madeenah n saw the Jews fasting on the day of “Ashoora”.He said,” what is this?” They said, “This is a good day, this is the day when Allah saved the children of Israel frm their enemy n Moosa fasted on this day”. He said, We are closer to Moosa than you”. So fasted on this day n tell the people to fast.
Fasting on the day of Ashoorah
Fasting on the day if “Ashoorah”does espiate for the sin of past year, because the Prophet(peace n blessings of Allah be upon him) said:”Fasting on the day if ‘Arafah I hope Allah will expiate thereby for the year before it and the year after it.
This is the bounty that Allah bestows upon us, whereby fasting one day expiates for the sins of whole year. And Allah is the owner of great bounty.
As we all entered in the new year I request you all to read the above dua for the new year n begin the new year by praying to Allah that to keep all us away from all the evil deeds n help us to reach the goal of jannah by doing good to everyone.
In Sha Allah we will have a good year ahead filled with happiness,joy n love for all .
