‘Ashura’ commemorates the day that Allah saved the Children of Israel from Pharaoh.
Fasting on Muharram 10, known as the Day of ‘Ashura’, expiates for the sins of the past year. When the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) arrived in Madinah in 622 CE, he found that the Jews there fasted on Muharram 10 and asked them the reason for their fasting on this day. They said,” This is a blessed day. On this day Allah saved the Children of Israel from their enemy (in Egypt) and so Prophet Musa [Moses] fasted on this day giving thanks to Allah.”
The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said,
“We are closer to Musa than you are.”
He fasted on that day and commanded Muslims to fast on this day. (Al-Bukhari) The following year, Allah commanded the Muslims to fast the month of Ramadan, and the fasting of ‘Ashura’ became optional. It is also reported that the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) intended to fast on the ninth and tenth. Ibn ‘Abbas reported: The Messenger of Allah fasted on the day of ‘Ashura’ and ordered the people to fast on it. The people said, “O Messenger of Allah, it is a day that the Jews and Christians honor.” The Prophet said, “When the following year comes, Allah willing, we shall fast on the ninth.” The death of the Prophet came before the following year. (Muslim and Abu Dawud) For more on ‘Ashura’ and Muharram, please read: The Significance of Fasting the Day of ‘Ashura’ Virtues of the Month of Muharram & Fasting during It
We have a very special Aqeeqah tomorrow in the Myf on the day of Ashura at Magrib time. A lot of people will be fasting, so please join us for the Aqeeqah.
The MYF would like to take this opportunity to thank everybody that was involved in our successful open day that we hosted over the weekend.
All the volunteers worked tirelessly to ensure that everybody was welcomed and greeted with the best of greetings and manners.
We had such positive feedback and The MYF has always supported interfaith and the local community to build bridges of peace, love and respect for everybody!
What a wonderful positive day, we hope and pray that we always endeavour InshAllah to follow the best of manners and principles to convey the true peaceful message of Islam.
May the most high accept from you and from us all, Ameen.
Mashallah, our first Iftar was blessed with the many brothers and sisters that attended. It was beautiful to see the relaxed happy atmosphere that always comes with Ramadan.
Please don’t forget that Iftar and Taraweeh will be held at The MYF everynight.
Please invite your friends and family and lets all join together in peace and the remembrance of Allah in this most blessed month of Ramadan.
