Month of Muharram

The IAR congratulates the community on the blessed occasion of the month of Muharram and the new Hijri year. It is encouraged to fast a great deal during the month of Muharram.

It is the Sunnah of our Prophet (peace be upon him) to fast the day of 'Aashuraa', falling on Thursday September 20, along with the day before or the day after. The Prophet (peace be upon him) says in a hadith on the reward for this fast, "It wipes away the sins of the previous year", we ask that Allah accept from us all.
