Practices | 9th and 10th Muharram

Asslamu Alaykoum Smile

The first month Muharram, is a month of great reward and virtue. Muharram itself means `sacred' and is from those months which have been mentioned as sacred in the Holy Quraan.

Almighty Allah states in the Holy Quraan:

"Four of them ( Zil-Qadah, Zil-Hijjah, Muharram and Rajab) are sacred."
(Surah At-Tawbah:36)

From out of the four sacred months, Muharram has been blessed with certain specific virtues:-
The Holy Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu-Alayhi-Wasallam) said:

"The best of fasts besides the month of Ramadhan is the fasting of Allah's month of Muharram."

In The Name Of Allah...

Asslamu'Alaykoum Biggrin

Just had to share some of these: Please take the time to read it all, jazakhallah..

The Beloved Prophet(saw) said;

> "If you read the Kalimah with conviction just once, Jannah becomes upon you

> "I only curse 3 types of people;"

1) Those who do not look after their parents when they are in old age
2) Those people who do not take the full advantage of the blessed month of Ramadan
3) Those people who do not say 'Saalallahu-Alayhay-wa-aalahay-wassalam' when my name is mentioned

> An intelligent person is one who is constantly thinking about and preparing for death

Isn't it funny?

Funny how we believe what the newspapers say.... but question what the Qur'an says...

Day Of Arafah | The Best Day Of The Year

Asslamu'Alaykoum Biggrin

The Best Day of the Year:

The magnificent ten days of Dhu’l-Hijjah are almost over and we are approaching their climax, which is the Day of Arafah (9th Dhu’l-Hijjah). On this day there is an immense outpouring of divine mercy and bounty and it is considered by many scholars to be the best day of the year.

The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said there is no day in which Allah saves more people from the fire than the Day of Arafah.[1] It has also been narrated that anyone who has an atom’s weight of faith in their heart will be forgiven by Allah on this day, whether or not they actually stand at Arafah.[2]
