**Important Reminder**

Fast the Day of Ashura (10th of Muharram) for forgiveness for the previous 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.

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.

*Dates of fasting:*

9th Muharram - Sun 9th September

*10th Muharram (Day of Ashura) - Mon 10th September*
