Coming Soon this Week. The Blessed Day of 10 Muharram. 1433H.

‘Ashura is a day of great historical significance.

On this day:

Allah (Subhanahu wa Ta’ala) accepted the repentance of Sayyidina Adam (‘Alaihis-Salaam) after his exile from Paradise;

Allah (Subhanahu wa Ta’ala) saved Sayyidina Nuh (‘Alaihis-Salaam) and his companions in the ark;

Allah extinguished the fire in which Sayyidina Ibrahim (‘Alaihis-Salaam) was thrown by Nimrod;

And Allah (Subhanahu wa Ta’ala) spoke directly to Sayyidina Musa (‘Alaihis-Salaam) and gave him the Commandments.

On this same 10th of Muharram, Sayyidina Ayyub (‘Alaihis-Salaam) was restored to health (from leprosy);

Sayyidina Yusuf (‘Alaihis-Salaam) was reunited with his father Ya’qub (‘Alaihis-Salaam);

Sayyidina Yunus (‘Alaihis-Salaam) was taken out from the belly of the fish; and the sea was divided as the nation of israel was delivered from captivity;

and Pharoah’s army was destroyed.

‘Ashura is also the day when Sayyidina Dawud (‘Alaihis-Salaam) was forgiven;

the kingdom of Sulaiman (‘Alaihis-Salaam) was restored;

Sayyidina Isa (‘Alaihis-Salaam) was raised to Jannah and

Sayyidina al-Husayn (Radiyallahu ‘anh) (the Holy Prophet’s, Sallallahu ‘alayhi wa Sallam, grandson) achieved the honor of Martyrdom.1

Let’s fast on 10 Muharram! :)

Have a blessed week ahead, and for those of you with Monday blues (including me), don’t forget to say Alhamdulillah for another Monday! For there must be a reason why you, out of all people, have been given the chance to live another day, blues and all.
