It is also recommended to fast the day preceding `Ashura’ which is the ninth day of the month Al-Muharram as it is mentioned in the hadith of Ibn `Abbâs رضي الله عنهما who said: “When the Messenger of Allah observed fast on the day of `Ashura, and ordered Muslims to fast on it, they said to him: “O Messenger of Allah! This is a day which both the Jews and the Christians venerate. Upon this, the Messenger of Allah said, “When it is the next year, Allah willing, we would observe fast on the ninth day (of Al-Muharram besides that day)”. But, it was not until the next year that the Messenger of Allah صلَّى الله عليه وسلَّم had died”(Reported by Muslim), and in another narration: “If I survive to the coming year, I would surely observe fast on the ninth (day of Al-Muharram)”(Reported by Muslim).

Narrated Ibn `Abbas (May Allaah be pleased with him):

When the Prophet (ﷺ) came to Medina, he found (the Jews) fasting on the day of ‘Ashura’ (i.e. 10th of Muharram). They used to say: “This is a great day on which Allah saved Moses and drowned the folk of Pharaoh. Moses observed the fast on this day, as a sign of gratitude to Allah.” The Prophet (ﷺ) said, “I am closer to Moses than they.” So, he observed the fast (on that day) and ordered the Muslims to fast on it.

 [ Sahih al-Bukhari 3397]

▪ Taasu’a (9th of Muharram) will be on Sunday 2nd November 2014.

▪’Aashooraa (10th of Muharram) will be on Monday 3rd November 2014.

The Virtue of Fasting on `Aashooraa’◆



The Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم: “The most excellent fast after the month of Ramadan is (the fasting in) the month of Allaah, Al-Muharram…” [Saheeh Muslim]

After Ramadhaan, the best month for fasting is al-Muharram
And the best day in it…is the Day of `Aashooraa’

The Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم was asked about fasting on `Aashooraa’. So he  صلى الله عليه وسلم  said: “I hope from Allaah that fasting on the day of Aashooraa’ may atone for the sins of the preceding year.” [Saheeh Muslim]

And fasting on the 9th Muharram along with the 10th is better.

اللهم انصر اخوانا المسلمين المظلومين في سوريا وفي دماج وفي كل مكان
اللهم كن لهم ولا تكن عليهم
اللهم انصرهم ولا تنصر عليهم
وامكر لهم ولا تمكر عليهم
اللهم إن الروافض قد طغوا وبغوا وأفسدوا وأرشدوا
اللهم أحصهم عددا واقتلهم بددا ولا تبق منهم أحدا
يا رب العالمين

What follows is a summary of the story concerning the events that occurred at the time of Musa عليه السلام; the victory Allah provided to His messenger and the destruction of the Pharoah. It is summarised from a khutba delivered by Shaikh Mohammad bin Salih al-Uthaymeen.

“In this month of Muharram was the salvation of Musa عليه السلام and his people from Pharoah and his army. Allah سبحانه و تعالى had sent him with clear evidences and proofs upon his prophethood, yet the Pharoah was arrogant and haughty and claimed, “I am your lord, most high” [An-Naazi’aat:24]. Musa عليه السلام came to him with great signs and called him to tawhid, to the tawhid of the Creator of the Heavens and the Earth yet Pharoah said in arrogance, “And what is the Lord of the ‘Alamin (mankind, jinns and all that exists)?”[Ash-Shu’ara:23].  (more…)
