Some ulamaa (scholars) are of the opinion that before the fasts of Ramazaan were made compulsory, the fast of the day of Aashurah was compulsory upon the ummah.
It is absolutely clear that the significance of the day of Aashurah is from the time of the Holy Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
Thus, to attribute the significance of Aashurah to the martyrdom of HadhratHusayn radhiyallahu anhu is baseless.

It means that one should fast two days: the 9th an 10th of Muharram or the 10th and 11th of it.
The reason of this additional fast as mentioned by the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wassallam) is that the Jews used to fast on the day of Aashurah alone, and the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wassallam) wanted to distinguish the Islamic-way of fasting from that of Jews.
Therefore, he advised the Muslims to add another fast to that of Aashurah.
