04 Muharram 1433 | Hadith of the Day | More on ‘Ashura


Narrated ‘Aisha:

The people used to fast on ‘ashura (the tenth of Muharram) before the fasting of Ramadan was made obligatory. And on that day the Ka’ba used to be covered with a cover. When Allah made the fasting of the month of Ramadan compulsory, Allah’s Apostle said, “Whoever wishes to fast (on the day of ‘ashura’) may do so; and whoever wishes to leave it can do so.”

It is related that Ibn ‘Abbas (RA) said,

“The Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, came to Madina and saw the Jews fasting the day of ‘Ashura’ and said, ‘What is this?’ They said, ‘This is a holy day. This is the day when Allah rescued the Children of Israel from their enemy and so Musa fasted it.’ He said, ‘We have more right to Musa than you.’ So he fasted it and commanded that it be fasted.'”
