Fasting on The "Day of Ashura" :)

10th Muharam is a very special day for Muslim all over the world. It's known as "Day of Ashura." In Muslim History, there were so many significant events occurred on this day. The list is as follows:

  1. Sayyidina Hussain was killed in Karbala'. He was the grandson of Prophet Muhamaad p.b.u.h
  2. Prophet Adam p.b.u.h was created by Allah S.W.T
  3. Prophet Adam p.b.u.h was sent to Paradise
  4. Prophet Adam p.b.u.h was forgiven by Allah S.W.T
  5. Prophet Abraham p.b.u.h was born
  6. Prophet Abraham p.b.u.h was saved from the fire of Namrud
  7. Prophet Moses p.b.u.h and his followers was saved from danger
  8. Prophet Jesus p.b.u.h was born
  9. and the LIST GOES ON!
Thus, we are encouraged to fasting on either the 9th and the 10th or the 10th and the 11th of Muharam as a way to honor this very special day. The reason for us to fasting a day before or after this Ashura Day is to differentiate between Jews and our way of fasting.
