Alhamdulillah we are currently in the month of Muharram, the first month of the Islamic year.
The Prophet ﷺ said: “For those who fast on the day of ‘Ashura’, I hope that Allah ta’ala will accept it as expiation for the previous year”. (Muslim) [meaning this fast makes up the shortcomings of the year passed]
The day of Ashura (10th Muharram) will be on Thursday 19th August 2021 and it is recommended to fast on the 10th, combining it with either the 9th or 11th.
May Allah SWT give us the ability to take fully from the blessings of the sacred months.
