Virtues of Muharram


Monday (3rd Oct) will Inshaa'Allaah be the Islaamic New Year, 1st of Muharram 1438AH.

So Wednesday12th of Oct  will be 10th of Muharram, known as `Aashoorah.

- "Muharram is Shahrullaah, Allaah's (SWT) Month" (Bukhaari & Muslim)

- "Muharram is 1 of the 4 most sacred Months" (Soorah Taubah, Aayah 36) & (Bukhaari & Muslim)

- "The best fasts after Ramadhaan, are those in Shahrullaah (Allaah's month), Muharram" (Bukhaari & Muslim).

- "1 fast in Muharram, equals the reward of 30 fasts" (Tabraani & Targheeb).

- "1 year's minor sins are forgiven by fasting on `Aashoorah" (Bukhaari & Muslim).

- "Rasoolullaah (SAW) most preferred to fast on `Aashoorah" (Bukhaari).

- "Rasoolullaah (SAW) encouraged the fast of `Aashooraah" (Aboo Daawood)

- "To fast on `Aashoorah is also the Sunnah of Hadhrat Moosaa (AS)" (Muslim).

- "But to oppose (be different from) the Jews & Christians, one should fast on 9th & 10th of Muharram" (Muslim).

- "Or one can fast on the 9th & 10th Muharram or the 10th & 11th of Muharram" (Bayhaaqi).

- "He who is generous on his family on the day of `Aashooraah, Allaah (SWT) will increase his provisions (grant prosperity) throughout the year" (Bayhaqee, Targheeb & Ibn Hibbaan).

So to get these rewards, try to Inshaa'Allaah fast as much as possible during Muharram, keep the combination of `Aashooraah fasts and spend on your family on `Aashooraah.

Also encourage others to Inshaa'Allaah do so because Rasoolullaah (SAW) said:-

- "Whoever revives a Sunnah from my Sunnah and the people practice it, will have the same reward of those who practice it without their reward diminishing" (Ibn Maajah)

And Allaah (SWT) knows best
