The Dates for the 9th & 10th of Muharram 2013

The 9th of Muharram is on Wednesday 13th November

The 10th of Muharram (Day of Ashura) is on Thursday 14th Nov.*

The Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said regarding the day of Ashura:

"It is a great day when Allah saved Musa (As) & his people & drowned Pharaoh & his people".(Muslim)*

The Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) also said: "Fasting on it expiates the previous year of sins." (Muslim)*

It is recommended to fast a day before or after the day of Ashura in order to differ from the Jews who also fasted on this day. Therefore we should fast either the 9th & 10th of Muharram (Wed 13th Nov & Thurs 14th Nov) or the 10th & 11th of Muharram (Thurs 14th & Fri 15th Nov). Alternatively one may fast on all 3 days.

Therefore let us make the best of this opportunity to fast on this auspicious occassion and to fulfill this Sunnah and gain immense rewards as well as a years sins forgiveness.

Surely we are all in dire need of as many good deeds as possible in our accounts before our imminent departure from this world which could be at any second.*
