In lunar calendar, Islamic New Year starts with the month of Muharram. This month is one of the famous four months which are mention in Quran. In this month Islam has agonizing history behind this month. Grandson of Muhammad (P.B.U.H) martyred in the way of Allah just for Islam. The 10th day Muharram known as day of Ashura, in this day Muhammad (P.B.U.H)’s grand-son and all his Muslim companions killed. Sunni Muslims mourning on this day and Sunni Muslims took fast in the remembrance of that painful day.
Its religious sacredness and sanctity are written in Quran and Hadiths. In this month hide many blessings for Muslims. If you do ordinary good deeds in this month then there reward is bigger as compare to other normal month. Therefore, you should do all small deeds and never leave a chance even to get a small virtue. Due to blessing these month known as a Allah’s month and in hadith is written as:
“The Best Of Fasting After Ramadan Is Fasting Allah’s Month Of Muharram.” (Muslim)
From this hadith one thing is also clear about this month spirituality that fasting is also virtue. As we do fasting in the month of Ramadan same we should fasting in this month to get more blessing of Allah because it is the right month to gather more blessing of Allah by good deeds and fasting. You must perform Umrah in this month and turn your double rewards in thousands.
Hazrat Moosa also fasted on the 10th Muharam, because Allah saved their nation’s children. Therefore, His nation followed him and fasted in this day. Hazrat Abbas (RA) narrates:
“The Prophet (PBUH) came to Madina and saw the Jews fasting on the day of Ashoora. He said, ‘What is this?’ They said, ‘This is a righteous day, it is the day when Allah saved the Children of Israel from their enemies, so Moosa fasted on this day.’ He said, ‘We have more right to Moosa than you,’ so He fasted on that day and commanded (the Muslims) to fast on that day”
Before Islam, all before nations have a strong faith in this month. Allah blessed every before and after nations for the bounties of Muharam. Every nation gets success on this day either by saving Israel child or martyred Hazrat Husain (R.A)
Ashura is the 10th of Muharram when last Messenger’s grandson and his family sacrificed their lives just for raise Islam and remains Islam till the Dooms-day. Hazrat Husain (R.A) and his companions just follow the Hazrat Muhammad’s lesson in Karbala and get Success even after cut their heads by the Yazid people.
“I never saw the Messenger of Allah so keen to fast any day and give it priority over any other time than the day of Ashoora and the month of Ramadan.”(Bukhari)From this Hadith is clear that Messenger of Allah aware from this day before time and He took fasting and pray to Almighty for His grandsons and His Ummat. That’s why we avoid celebrating all cheerful events in this month and distributing sweet milk, sweet dishes, Haleem or other dishes for the commemoration of Karbala.
