The Day of Ashura (10th Muharram) Monday November 3rd

Although the month of Muharram is a sacred month as a whole, the 10th of Muharram is the most sacred among all its days. The day is named 'Ashurah'. It is one of the most important and blessed days of Allah SWT in the Islamic calendar.

Fasting

Fasting

The Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu-Alayhi-Wasallam) has exhorted and encouraged his Ummah to fast on this day.

 He said: "This fast is a compensation for the (minor) sins of the past year." (Hadith:Muslim)

 "Observe the fast of Aashora and oppose the Jews. Fast a day before it or a day after." (Hadith:Baihaqi)

 Hence, it is important to either fast on the Ninth and the Tenth or the Tenth and the Eleventh of Muharram. To fast only on the day of Aashora is Makrooh (undesirable).
