Fasting on Ashura

Posted on Friday, September 6, 2019 10:46 am

Ashura commemorates the Day that Allah saved the Children of Israel from the Pharaoh.  Fasting on the day of Ashura expiates the sins of the past year.  When the Prophet (PBUH) arrived in Madina, He found that the Jews fasted on this day.  They said, "This is a blessed day.  On this day Allah saved the Children of Israel and Prophet Musa (AS) fasted on this day to give thanks to Allah."  The Prophet said "We are closer to Musa than you are."  Muslims fast on the 9th and 10th of Muharram to distinguish ourselves (At-Tirmidhi).

The Prophet (PBUH) said:
"Fasting the day of Ashura, I hope that Allah will accept it as an expiation for (the sins commited in) the previous year." (Muslim)

It is recommended to fast the 9th/10th of Muharram.  If that is not possible, then the 10th/11th of Muharram.

9th of Muharram: Sun. Sept 8
10th of Muharram: Mon. Sept 9
11th of Muharram: Tues. Sept 10
