💓❤💕 Virtues of Ashura (10 Muharram) Fasting
Abu Huraira RadiAllahu Anhu reported that Allah's Messenger ﷺ as saying: "The most excellent fast after Ramadan is Allah's month, al-Muharram, and the most excellent prayer after obligatory prayer is the prayer during the night [Tahajjud]" - Muslim
Abu Qatadah RadiAllahu Anhu narrated that the Messenger of Allah ﷺ said: "Fast on the Day of Ashura [10 Muharram], for indeed I anticipate that Allah will forgive (the sins of) the year before it." - Tirmidhi
Abdullah b 'Abbas RadiAllahu Anhu reported that the Messenger of Allah ﷺ had said: "If I live till the next (year), I would definitely observe fast on the 9th [along with 10th]", and the narration transmitted by Abu Bakr said: "He meant the day of Ashura." - Muslim
It is therefore recommended to fast on 9-10 or 10-11 or 9-10-11 of Muharram, corresponding to 19-20 or 20-21 or 19-20-21 of September 2018 (to differ with the Jews), In Sha Allah.
May Allah grant us the ability.
ordered (the #Muslims
) to #fast
on the day of #Ashura
, and when fasting in the month of Ramadan was prescribed, it became optional for one to fast on that day (Ashura) or not.
sent a messenger to the village of the Ansar in the morning of the day of 'Ashura' (10th of #Muharram
) to announce: 'Whoever has eaten something should not eat but complete the fast, and whoever is observing the fast should complete it.' "She further said, "Since then we used to fast on that day regularly and also make our boys fast. We used to make toys of wool for the boys and if anyone of them cried for, he was given those toys till it was the time of the breaking of the fast."

Abu Qatada (radi Allahu anhu) relates that the Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said that the fast on the 10th of Muharram atones for the sins of the preceding year. [Sahih Muslim]
It is reported from Abu Hurairah (radi Allahu anhu) that the Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said that after Ramadan, the fasts of Muharram have the greatest excellence. [Sahih Muslim]
The 10th of Muharram was the day that Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) delivered Musa (alaihis salam) and the Bani Israil from Egypt and drowned Firaun and his people. Musa (alaihis salam) thus observed fast on this day out of gratitude to Allah (subhana wa ta’ala). When the Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) came to Madina he found the Jews fasting on this day for this reason. Because Muslims follow unaltered revelation, they are closer to Musa (alaihis salam) than the Jews are. Thus, Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) inspired Rasul Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) to fast on the tenth of Muharram too and tell the Muslims to fast on that day as well. But to distinguish ourselves from the Jews, Rasul Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) told us to fast on either the 9th or the 11th along with the 10th. [Sahih Bukhari]
9th Muharram-Weds 19th Sept
10th Muharram-Thurs 20th Sept
11th Muharram- Fri 21st Sept
It's all about tolerance for discomfort.
If you tense up during a massage, and continuously resist the masseur's pressure, it doesn't matter if you spend hours there, you've not gotten a massage, and you might even leave from there tighter rather than looser!
Likewise, if you stand in prayer, and do not allow the rememberance of God and His words to penetrate your soul, to seep into your heart, then you've not prayed, and have missed the overarching benefits, no matter how many times you've prayed, and no matter how long.
You must embrace the discomfort that comes with letting go during prayer. Letting go of all your worries, letting go of all your desires, and focusing only on Him (swt). Putting your ultimate trust in Him alone (swt). Only then, will you gain the benefits of prayer.
Only then will you slowly but surely begin to soften the hardness of your heart, increase your eeman, your sense of peace, and your ability to practice tawwakkul and sabr in the face of adversities in life.

Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported:
The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said, "He who utters a hundred times in a day these words: 'La ilaha illallahu, wahdahu la sharika lahu, lahul-mulku wa lahul-hamdu, wa Huwa 'ala kulli sha'in Qadir (there is no true god except Allah. He is One and He has no partner with Him; His is the sovereignty and His is the praise, and He is Omnipotent),' he will have a reward equivalent to that for emancipating ten slaves, a hundred good deeds will be recorded to his credit, hundred of his sins will be blotted out from his scroll, and he will be safeguarded against the devil on that day till the evening; and no one will exceed him in doing more excellent good deeds except someone who has recited these words more often than him. And he who utters: 'Subhan-Allahi wa bihamdihi (Allah is free from imperfection and His is the praise)' one hundred times a day, his sins will be obliterated even if they are equal to the extent of the foam of the ocean." [Al-Bukhari and Muslim].
