Yawmul aashura is one of the few auspicious days in Islam. Unlike lailatul Jaaizah, Qadr and Bara’ah where the night is revered, on Aashura the day is revered. On Yawmul Aashura, do the following:

Fast: 🚫 Nabi ﷺ said, “The best fasts after Ramadân are in Allah’s month of Muharram.” The reward for fasting, is that the sins committed in the year before it will be forgiven. In addition, fast a day before or a day after too as Nabi ﷺ said, “If I live til the next year, we will inshaAllah fast on the 9th day.” (Sahih Muslim)

Be generous: 💰 Nabi ﷺ said, “Whoever increases [his expenditure] on his family on the day of Ashura, Allah will increase his sustenance for the entire year.” (Bayhaqi) Bear in mind that no amount, minimum or maximum, has been stipulated. Therefore, whether you choose to buy a scarf for your wife or a diamond ring, is up to you. Spend within your means even if it be little. If you opt to buy food, ensure that you buy it on the day of Aashura, not the night before or after.

Remember that Aashura teaches us:

📌 Allah never burdens a soul more than they can bear: 🌊 ✨ Bani Israel suffered under Firawn’s tyrannical rule for hundreds of years. When they eventually escaped Firawn chased them with his army. With the sea ahead of them and Firawn behind, they began to panic.

Allah commanded Musa عليه السلام to strike the ground with his stick, the sea miraculously split before them, and Bani Israel walked through the path to freedom. If the sea could split for them, nothing is impossible. Never lose help, take solace in the knowledge that Allah’s help is near.

📌 Evil does not last forever: ☪ 💡 Allah made Firawn the King for centuries. He drowned 300 years after Musa عليه السلام invited him to Islam, yet he was in such good health, he never experienced even a single headache! Allah gave him respite, but never assume this lasts forever. Allah soon punished him and preserved his body for us to learn – evil never lasts. All kings will eventually be defeated and humbled by Allah – the King of all Kings.

📌 Remember your humble beginnings: ⌛ ⏰ The progeny of Bani Israel are the present day Jews. They struggled under Firawn, in recent times they experienced the holocaust, yet they have forgotten and oppress Palestinians today. Sometimes when a person is abused in childhood, they become the abuser in adulthood. A harsh employer forgets how hard it was to begin as an employee. Don’t forget, don’t repeat the same mistakes you went through. Let your past make you better, not worse.

📌 Hussain رضي الله عنه: 🔟 📿 The 10th of Muharram was auspicious long before he was martyred. The Shia’s belief that we revere this day due to him is incorrect. It would be true to say that Allah loved him so much, He chose this auspicious day to bless him with martyrdom, just like we consider one who passes away on Lailatul Qadr as blessed.

Some other info:


'Aashoora’ is the 10th day of Muharram. On this day Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu `alayhi wa sallam ( may Allah exalt his mention ) fasted in Makkah with Quraish. When He migrated to Al-Madeenah, he found the Jews fasting on this day. He continued fasting on that day and ordered the Muslims to fast too. Afterward Allah legislated the fasting during the Month of Ramadan. Then, the fast of 'Aashoora’ became a supererogatory fast. But it is likable for a Muslim to fast on this day. If one fasts on this day, it is better to fast the 9th of Muharram also to oppose the Jews.

Question:
There are some Hadeeths narrated that mention the reasons for fasting on ‘Aashooraa’ and they are apparently contradictory. Some narrations, for instance, signify that Muslims observed fasting on this day in Makkah before Hijrah and that the Quraysh used to also fast on it. They also used to garment the Ka‘bah on this day, as narrated by Al-Bukhari and others. There are other Hadeeths which signify that fasting on this day was ordained after Hijrah when the Prophet sallallaahu `alayhi wa sallam ( may Allah exalt his mention ) found the Jews venerating this day on which Allah saved Moosa (Moses), may Allah exalt his mention, from Pharaoh. How can we reconcile between the versions?

Question:

Why did the Prophet sallallaahu `alayhi wa sallam ( may Allah exalt his mention ) not order the Companions to fast the ninth of Muharram except a year before his death, despite the fact that the Jews left Madeenah a long time before this?

I understand that it is preferable to avoid fasting exclusively on 10th Muḥarram. However, I have heard that according to the Ḥanafī school of thought, it is makrūh to fast exclusively on 10th Muḥarram. Please can you clarify the matter.

What is the status of the narration that suggests that a person should generously spend on the family on ʿĀshūrāʾ? Please clarify because people who do not believe in this are criticised whilst people who believe in this are accused of innovation.
