Assalamu alaikum Wa Rahmatu Lah wa Barakatuh,


Sunday, July 7, 2024 was the first day of Muharram and the new Islamic year 1446 Hijriah.

It is mustahabb (desirable) to fast as much as possible during the month of Al-Muharram, Abu Haraira (Allah be pleased with him) reported Allah’s Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) as saying: The most excellent fast after Ramadan is Allah’s month Al-muharram, and the most excellent prayer after what is prescribed is prayer during the night. Muslim

It is confirmed that it is also mustahabb (desirable) to fast Ashuraa on the tenth day of Al-Muharram muawiya bin Abi Sufyan on the day of ‘Ashura’ said I heard Allah’s messenger saying, ‘This is the day of ‘Ashura’. Allah has not enjoined its fasting on you but I am fasting it. You have the choice either to fast or not to fast (on this day). Muslim

Fasting the day of ‘Ashuraa’ does expiate the sins for the past year, because the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: “Fasting the day of ‘Ashuraa’ I hope Allah will expiate the sins of the year that came before it.” Narrated by Muslim.

This is by the bounty that Allah bestows upon us, fasting one day expiates for the sins of a whole year. And Allah is the Owner of great bounty.


In his well-known book, Fiqh As-Sunnah, the late Sheikh Sayyed Sabiq states:

It is noteworthy that Muslim scholars have stated that fasting of `Ashuraa’ is of three levels as follows:

  1. fasting a day before or after Ashuraa,
  2. fasting the 9th and 10th of Muharram, and
  3. fasting only the 10th of Muharram.

Al-Hafid may Allah have mercy on him said, Fasting Ashuraa has 3 levels, the lowest is to fast the 10th, upper than that is to fat the 9th with it and the highest is to fast 9th, 10th and 11th.


The day of Ashurah this year occurs on Tuesday, July 16th, 2024.


May Allah SWT accept our fasting and our good deeds.
