Month Muharram:

Allah Almighty says in the glorious Quran:

  • Indeed the number of months is twelve months with Allah. Since He created the heavens and the earth in the Book of Allah, four of them are forbidden; this is a straight religion. So do not wrong your soul in these months, and fight the idolaters as they always fight and know you. That Allah is with those who guard (against evil). “(Surah Al-Tawbah: 9/36)

This ayah indicates that Allah Almighty has created twelve months, from which he has made four months as holy months. He chose four months to be honored and respected.
According to Ahadith, one of these four holy months is the month of Allah. the month of Muharram.
Abu Bakarah (may Allaah be pleased with him) reported that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said:

  • “The year is twelve months, four of which are holy, the three consecutive months Dhul-Qa’dah, Dhul-Hijjah and Muharram and Rajab Mudar, which are between Jumadah and Sha’ban.” (narrated by Al-Bukhari, 2958))
    The greatness and holiness of the month of Muharram can thus be realized by the fact that in the Qur’an and Ahadith he mentioned one of the four sacred months.

More importantly, it is called the “Month of Allah”, which adds even more to its size and distinctiveness. Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him) said:

  • “The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said:” The best fasting after Ramadan is fasting in Allah’s month al-Muharram. “(Reported by Muslim, 1982).

Muharram’s Story (the 10th of Muharram):

The month Muharram and especially the 10th Muharram have a high historical significance.
When the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) moved to Medina, He saw the Jews celebrate that day.
It is reported in Hadith of Abu Musa (may Allah be pleased with him), who said:
“The Jews took the day of Ashura as a feast [according to a report by Muslims: the day of Ashura, whom the Jews loved and made it a feast].
According to another report also reported by Muslims: the people of Khaybar (the Jews) took it as a feast, and their wives symbolized their jewelry that day.
The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: “You (Muslims) should fast on this day.” (Reported by al-Bukhari)

Muharram Fasting:

Fasting the day of Ashura, the tenth of Muharram has been praised in the Hadiths.
The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “To fast the day of Ashura, I hope that Allah will accept it as compensation for the year before.” (Narrated by Muslim, 1976).

  • It is also advised to fast on the ninth of Muharram with the tenth, to oppose the practice of the Jews, because they celebrated the tenth day only.

Abdullah bin Abbas, may Allah be pleased with them:

“When the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) fasted on Ashura and he told Muslims to fast as well, they said,
“O Messenger of Allah, it is a day that loves Jews and Christians.”

The Prophet Peace Be Upon Him said:

“If I live to see the coming year, God willing, we will fast on the ninth day as well.”
But it happened that the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) died before coming next year. (Narrated by Muslim, 1916).
Thus, scientists believe that it is certain (desirable) to fast the ninth with the tenth of Muharram.


Fasting on the ninth and tenth of the Muharram will be very rewarding.
It is better to cook haleem (khichra) and Send reward virtues to Imam Hussein(may Allaah have mercy on him).

One will be at peace with the diseases because on that day the water Zam Zam reaches all the waters.

At 10 Muharram Imam al-Imam Sayyidina Imam Hussain (R.A) was martyred with the most brutal day on Dasht-e-Karbala, on the same day, after being hungry for three days with His Princes(Sons) and companions.
