Virtue of the Fast of Aashura

Dec 23, 2009
 
The Prophet (sallallahu alaiyhi wassallam) has said: "The best fasts after the fasts of Ramadhan are those of the month of Muharram." Nabi (sallallahu alaiyhi wassallam) was asked with regard to the blessings of this fast, he replied:" It is a compensation for the sins of the past year." i.e. Allah will forgive the sins of the past year." (Muslim, Vol 1). Abu Qataada (radhiyallahu anhu) has related that the Prophet (sallallahu alaiyhi wassallam) has reported to have said, It is my thought that by fasting on the 10th of Muharram Allah Ta'ala will pardon the sins of the past year." (Tirmizi). Note: For the forgiveness of major sins Taubah and Istighfaar is a pre-requisite.

GENEROSITY TO ONE'S FAMILY:
Some traditions signify another feature of the day of ''Ashurah. According to these traditions one should be more generous to his family by providing more food to them on this day as compared to other days. It is mentioned in a Hadeeth: "He who will be generous to his family on the day of Aashura, Allah will be generous to him for the entire year."

EVENTS OF MUHARRAM:-

1. Sayyidina Hussain (RA), the grandson of Rasullullah (sallahu alaiyhi wassallam) was martyred in this month in Karbala.
2. Shaykhain Tirmizi and Haakim have narrated from Anas (radhiyallahu anhu) that the following verse: "Allah may forgive thee of thy sins that which is past and that which is to come. "(Al-Fath) was revealed on the 10th of Muharram.
3. Prophet Muhammed (sallallahu alaiyhi wassallam) went to defeat Bani Muhaarin and Bani Tha'laba (Tribes of Bani Gatfan) in the month of Muharram in the year 4 A.H. (Asahhus-siyar)

AASHOORAA' IN HISTORY
Ibn Abbaas (RA) said: The Prophet (sallahu alaiyhi wassallam) came to Madeenah and saw the Jews fasting on the day of Aashooraa'. He said, what is this?' They said, this is a righteous day, it is the day when Allaah saved the Children of Israel from their enemies, so Moosa fasted on this day.' He said, We have more right to Moosa than you,' so he fasted on that day and commanded [the Muslims] to fast on that day. (Reported by al-Bukhaari, 1865).

This is a righteous day in a report narrated by Muslim, [the Jews said:] This is a great day, on which Allaah saved Moosa and his people, and drowned Pharaoh and his people.Moosa fasted on this day a report narrated by Muslim adds: in thanksgiving to Allaah, so we fast on this day. According to a report narrated by al-Bukhaari: so we fast on this day to venerate it.

 
A version narrated by Imaam Ahmad adds: "This is the day on which the Ark settled on Mount Joodi, so Nooh fasted this day in thanksgiving."
