Day of Ashura - 10th of MuharramPosted on Tuesday, August 17, 2021 10:30 pm
InshaAllah the 10th day of Muharram (Day of Ashura) will be Thursday, August 19th. The preferred Sunnah is to fast the day of Ashura and before or the day after with it.
Ibn Abbas (ra) said:
“I do not know Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) singling out any day's fast and considering it more excellent than another, except this day (the Day of Ashura) and this month, meaning the month of Ramadan. (Muslim)
Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) also said,
“For fasting the Day of Ashura, I hope that Allah will accept it as expiation for the previous year.”* (Muslim)
Before the Prophet of Allah (ﷺ) left this world, he expressed his desire, that if is alive next year, he would fast a day before or the day after the Day of Ashura.

Narrated 'Umar bin Al-Khattab: I heard Allah's Messenger saying, "The reward of deeds depends upon the intentions and every person will get the reward according to what he has intended. So whoever emigrated for worldly benefits or for a woman to marry, his emigration was for what he emigrated for."”
