Allah’s Month: Muharram

The Significance of Muharram can be best understood by the saying of Prophet Muhammad saw narrated by Abu Huraira ra

The most excellent fast after Ramadan is in God’s month; al-Muharram, and the most excellent prayer after what is prescribed is prayer during the night.” [Muslim 6: 2661]

This does not mean that one has to fast the entire month but that each fast in Muharram holds a reward with Allah more than voluntary fasts in any other month. We must make the most of this important month in the light of this hadith

  1. Right.
    If you do a bit more research you will definitely find a correlated hadith. That is informing some more about fasting in muharram. That one should keep the fast particularly on 9th and 10th of the muharram. But not just on the 10th, as that would coincide with jews. Or if you really dig into it by consulting any of the rightly scholar then you will get to know that the one can keep the fast on 10th and 11th if was unable to do on the 9th.
    Thanks. May allah bless you for your great work.
    Your brother in islam.

  2. Further i would like to add that we have to inform people about Kufrana habits and bidaat perform by muslims.we have to inform evry body about baraakaat and holyness of this month.As most of the people doesnt know anything they all are doing what their forefather did.
