The Prophet ﷺ said:

“For fasting the day of ‘Ashoora, I hope that Allah will accept it as expiation for the year that went before.”

[Reported by Muslim, 1976]

Don’t forget to fast on the day of Ashoora (10th of Muharram) plus to fast a day before it  which is the (Taasu’a: 9th of Muharram) or after which is the (11th  of Muharram) to be different from the Jews.

:

Ibn `Abbas (May Allah be pleased with them) reported: The Messenger of Allah ﷺ said, “If I remain alive till the next year, I shall also observe fast on the ninth of Muharram.” [Muslim].

Imam An-Nawawi said commenting on this hadeeth: Some people think these words stand to mean that `he will observe Saum on the 9th of Muharram only. But this interpretation does not agree with other Ahadith. In order to oppose the Jews, he ﷺ resolved to observe one more Saum with that of 10th of Muharram and ordained it for the Muslims.

NOTE: The 10th of Muharram (‘Ashoora) 1435H will fall on Thursday 14th, November 2013:

The Prophet ﷺ encouraged us to fast on this day to have last year’s sins, as well as this year’s*,, forgiven. We should fast it and a day before it, or a day after it, to oppose the practice of the Jews who fast on this day alone. [Arabic message from the Muftee of Saudi Arabia.] 

*CORRECTION: Fasting on the Day of ‘Arafah expiates two years’ sins, not the Day of ‘Aashooraa’.

Bismillahi wal Hamdullillah was Salaatu Was salaamu ‘alaa rasoolillahi,
Ammaa Ba’d:

Since this fast of Aashooraa falls within the beginning of the winter months here is a benefit concerning the virtue and blessing of fasting during winter.

Upon the authority of Anas ibn Maalik – Radhiyallahu Anhu – who said that the Messenger – Sallallahu ‘alahi was Salam said:
“Fasting during winter is the Cool Ghaneemah (spoils of war)”
(Collected by Imaamut Tabaraani in ‘Mu’jam Al Awsat’ and declared ‘Hasan’ By Shaikh Al Albaani in Silsilatul Ahaadeethus Saheehah: 1922)

Concerning the meaning of the Hadeeth Imaam Manaawi mentioned:
“Meaning it is that thing by way of which one may recieve pardon (from Allah) without difficulty, due to the shortness of the days and their coolness and there being no (pressing) need for food and drink (as is the case in the winter months)”
(At Tayseer 2/208)

He mentions elsewhere:
Meaning that fasting during winter is resemblant to recieving spoils of war in cool periods. The factor that is present within both affairs is that one obtains benefit without effort
(At Tayseer 2/320)

Therefore let us capitalise upon this great blessing from Allah Subhaanah and take the ease that Allah has blessed us with from his mercy.

Wa Sallallahu ‘Alaa Nabiyinaa Muhammad

Ashoorah on Tuesday


Ref:  http://www.saudigazette.com.sa/index.cfm?method=home.regcon&contentID=20111202113101

” Sheikh Abdul Aziz Bin Abdullah Aal Al-Sheikh, Grand Mufti of the Kingdom, has said the day of fasting for Ashoura,
Muharram 10, falls on Tuesday, Dec. 6. Sheikh Aal Al-Sheikh called this a way out of arguments that the crescent
was not sighted to mark the beginning of Muharram.
He said Saturday therefore was the last day of Dhul Hijjah and Sunday the first of Muharram.

Hence, the 9th and 10th of Muharram – days on which Muslims are recommended to fast –
fall on Monday (Dec. 5) and Tuesday (Dec. 6) respectively.”

9th Muharram 1433= Monday 5th December 2011
10th Muharram 1433 = Tuesday 6th December 2011
11th Muharram 1433= Wednesday 7th December 2011

Abu Hurairah said that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wassallam said:

‘The best fasting after Ramadhaan is the month of Allah, Muharram, and the best prayer after the obligatory prayer is prayer at night.’

[Muslim, 1163]

Q: What is the ruling on observing Sawm (Fast) on the Day of ‘Ashura’ (10th of Muharram)? Is it better to observe Sawm on the day that precedes it, the day that succeeds it, all the three days, or on the Day of ‘Ashura’ only? Please clarify the matter. May Allah reward you with the best!

A: It is a Sunnah (supererogatory act of worship following the example of the Prophet) to observe Sawm on the Day of ‘Ashura’ for the authentic Hadiths in which the Prophet (peace be upon him) stated so. The Prophet (peace be upon him) mentioned that the Jews used to observe Sawm on that Day because it was the day on which Allah (Exalted be He) rescued Prophet Musa (Moses, peace be upon him) and his people and destroyed Pharaoh and his people. Our Prophet Muhammad thus, observed Sawm on the Day of ‘Ashura’ to express his gratitude to Allah, advised Muslims to do so, and directed us as well to observe Sawm on the day preceding or succeeding it. However, observing Sawm on the ninth and tenth of Muharram is better than doing so on the tenth and eleventh. The latter form is also sufficient for it contradicts the practice of the Jews as well. One may also observe Sawm on all three days, i.e. the ninth, the tenth, and the eleventh of Muharram as is reported in some narrations: Fast a day before (the Day of ‘Ashura’) and a day after it. But, it is Makruh (reprehensible) to observe Sawm on the Day of ‘Ashura’ only, i.e. without accompanying it by the preceding or the succeeding day. May Allah grant us success!

The Prophet, peace be upon him, said:

For fasting the day of ‘Ashura, I hope that Allah will accept it as expiation for the year that went before.” [Reported by Muslim, 1976]

Ibn ‘Abbas, may Allah be pleased with them both, said:

I never saw the Messenger of Allah, upon whom be peace, so keen to fast any day and give it priority over any other than this day, the day of ‘Ashura, and this month, meaning Ramadhan.” [Reported by al-Bukhari, 1867]

Abdullah ibn ‘Abbas,may Allah be pleased with them both, said:

When the Messenger of Allah,peace be upon him, fasted on ‘Ashura and commanded the Muslims to fast as well, they said, ‘O Messenger of Allah, it is a day that is venerated by the Jews and Christians.’ The Messenger of Allah,peace be upon him, said:

If I live to see the next year, insha’Allah, we will fast on the ninth day too.’

But it so happened that the Messenger of Allah, peace be upon him, passed away before the next year came.” [Reported by Muslim, 1916]

Why is it recommended to fast on this day?

It is the day on which Allah granted Prophet Musa (‘Alayhissallaam) emancipation from Pharoah and so they (the Jews) observed Sawm (Fasting) in token of their joy. On this, he (Salla Allaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) said that Muslims have greater right to observe Sawm than the Jews , consequently, he (Salla Allaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) also observed Sawm on the 10th of Muharram. Then he said that if he lived the following year, he would observe Sawm on the 9th of Muharram also, so that muslims would be different from the Jews.

Many scholars are of opinion that the fasting of ‘Ashoura was obligatory in the beginning then it was abrogated by the fasting of Ramadan.
