Illuminating Vision for Moderate Muslims

Virtues of Muharram ul Haram and Fasting of Ashura


Hope and pray that you all are in the best state of Emaan and Health. May Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala bestow His endless mercy and forgiveness upon all of us for the sake of Beloved Rasoolullah (Sallulaho Alaihi Wasallam) and accept every bit of our efforts during the blessed month of Muharram-ul-Harram and bless us the opportunity to continue our contemplation for the rest of the year! Ameen

Please remember to fast 10th of Muharram-ul-Harram (Yum-e-Ashura alongwith 9th or 11th) and perform Zikr abundantly. There are great virtues of fasting any day so consider making up for days missed in the month of Ramadhan. Please read follwing post in this regard and share with friends and family:


—Qur’an, Sura 9 (Al-Tawbah) Ayah 36: Indeed, the number of months with Allah has been (inscribed as) twelve in the Book of Allah (i.e., permanent Law of Nature) since the day He created the (system of) the heavens and the earth. Of these, four months (Rajab, Dhual-Qa‘da, Dhu al-Hijja and Muharram) are sacred. This is the right Din (Religion). So do not wrong your souls during these months (by involving yourselves in fighting and war), and fight against all the idolaters (in retaliation) the same way as they all (allied) have imposed war upon all of you, and bear in mind that Allah is surely with the Godfearing.

Virtues of Muharram-ul-Harram

Additional helpful resources for continuity of contemplation for rest of the year (Insha’Allah):

The blessed month of Muharram-ul-Harram is approaching us and Insha’Allah it should serve as a reminder to continue our struggle to please Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala until the last breath of our life. We as Muslims have our faith which requires a continuous commitment to our obligations of both Huqooq-ul-Allah and Huqooq-ul-Ebad.

If someone among us is participating in a Marathon and is not practicing to its needs then we all as true friends will push him to do what is needed for success. However, in the ‘Marathon of Life’ we all are in so we all need to remind and help each other to stay focused until we all win (Insha’Allah). In all our efforts our intentions should be to only gain the pleasure of Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala. We may have difference in quantity and quality of our efforts but if we keep ourselves united and focused we will Insha’Allah keep getting a push from someone going by on the track and we will all win (Insha’Allah). May the best of our thoughts reach to all friends and family who share part of our heart. Keep whole Ummah in your prayers.
