The month of Muharram


السلام عليكم


What does the month of Muharram mean to you ?

Is there anything particular to know about this first month ? (like siyam etc)



Jazakallahu khairan.




Thanks my friend. Do you fast 2 days of the month ? 

Barak Allahu fik.

A lot of historical events occurred in Muharram , Moses escaped from the tyrant Pharaoh, on the tenth of Muharram .


Muharram is the great month after ramadhan. It's the best time for us to make something goodness such fast or sadakah. Fastabikul Khairat.

وعلسكم السلام

yes it is good to fast on Asyura day (10th of Muharram), plus a day before or after. So, 9&10 or 10&11th of Muharram. Fast of Ashura expiates the sins of the previous year and the coming year.

We combine the Asyura fasting plus a day before or after to distinguish from the Jews.


Abu Hurayrah رضي الله عنه narrated that the Messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه وسلم said:

أفضل الصيام بعد رمضان شهر الله المحرم وأفضل الصلاة بعد الفريضة صلاة الليل

"The best of fasting after Ramadan is the month of Allah, Muharram, and the best of salah after the obligatory salah, is the salah of the night." [Saheeh Muslim, 1163]


Thanks Malik, ippank.boy and Lia, your comments and help are all appreciated. Jazak Allahu khairan.

Al muharram is a great month , and it's the beginning of Hjri year
so we should ask Allah for forgiveness
and we fast on 9 th and 10 th of Al muharram , because Allah saved prophet Moses from the Evels ( in his time ) .  we call 10th of al muharram ( A' shouraa' )

عن أبي قتادة رضي اللَّه عنه ، أن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم قال: " صيام يوم عاشوراء، أحتسب على اللَّه أن يكفر السنة التي قبله


سئل : أي الصلاة أفضل بعد المكتوبة ؟ وأي الصيام أفضل بعد شهر رمضان ؟ فقال ” أفضل الصلاة ، بعد الصلاة المكتوبة ، الصلاة في جوف الليل . وأفضل الصيام ، بعد شهر رمضان ، صيام شهر الله المحرم ”
