 (9009)-The Virtues of Muharram and Fasting on Aashooraa
Muharram is so called because it is a sacred month and to confirm its sanctity.
Al-Qaari said: “The apparent meaning is all of the month of Muharram.” But it was proven that the Prophet sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam never fasted any whole month apart from Ramadaan, so this Hadeeth is probably meant to encourage increasing one’s fasting during Muharram, without meaning that one should fast for the entire month.
If a person does not know when Muharram began, and he wants to be sure of fasting on the tenth, he should assume that Dhu’l-Hijjah was thirty days – as is the usual rule – and should fast on the ninth and tenth.
