    *Important reminder - Dates for fasting 9th & 10th Muharram 2022*

    Fasting the Day of Ashura (10th of Muharram) gains forgiveness for an entire year's sins:

    The Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: “Fasting the day of ‘Ashura’ I hope Allah will expiate thereby (erase sins) for the year that came before it.” (Muslim: 1162)

    The Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said, “Next year, if Allah wills, we will fast on the 9th day.” But by the following year he had passed away. (Muslim: 1134)

    It's recommended to fast 9th as well as 10th or 10th and 11th Muharram.

    Ibn Hajar (Ra) said this is to differ from the Jews who also venerate this day & to be sure of fasting the day of Ashura due to differences of the exact start of Muharram.

    Imam Ahmed (RA) recommended fasting all 3 days which is best. If not then the 9th & 10th or 10th & 11th. If not then at least on the 10th.

    Fasting the White days:

    The Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) commanded us to fast for three days of every month; that is on the days of the full moon; the 13th, 14th, and 15th (of the lunar month).’ (An-Nasa’i and At-Tirmidhi)
