Allah’s sacred month of Muharram is a blessed and important month. It is the first month of the Hijri calendar.
Muharram itself means `sacred’ and is from those months which have been mentioned as sacred in the Holy Quraan.
Almighty Allah states in the Holy Quraan:
“Four of them ( Zil-Qadah, Zil-Hijjah, Muharram and Rajab) are sacred.”
Sunan of Abu-Dawood 2419 (part) Narrated by Abu Qatadah
The Messenger of Allah (saws) said: ‘…..I seek from Allah that fasting on the day of ‘Arafah’ may atone for the sins of the preceding and the coming year; and I seek from Allah that fasting on the days of ‘Ashura’ may atone for the sins of the preceding year.’
We ask Allah to make us followers of the Sunnah of His Noble Prophet, to make us live in Islam and die in a state of faith. May He help us to do that which He loves and which pleases Him. We ask Him to help us to remember Him and be thankful to Him, to worship Him properly and to accept our good deeds.
