Youm-e-Ashura New Status

Day of Ashura Introduction

Youm-e-Ashura, or the day of Ashura, is the 10th Muharram. Its meaning is derived from the word ‘asha nura’ which is translated as ‘enlightened day’.

It is a significant date in the Islamic calendar due to many events which have occurred on this particular day, including the martyrdom of Sayyidina Imam Hussain in the battle of Karbala.

Events which Occurred on the 10th Muharram

In Hazrat Sayyidina Abdul Qadir Jilani’s famous book, Ghunya li-Talibi Tariq al-Haqq, he writes of the following incidents which occurred on Ashura:

* – Allah accepted the repentance of Prophet Adam (A.S) after his exile from Paradise;

* – Allah saved Prophet Nuh (A.S) and his companions in the ark;

* – Allah extinguished the fire in which Prophet Ibrahim (A.S) was thrown into by Nimrod [Pharaoh];

* – Allah spoke directly to Prophet Musa (A.S) and gave him the Commandments.

* – On this same 10th of Muharram, Prophet Ayyub (A.S) was restored to health (from leprosy);

* – Prophet Yusuf (A.S) was reunited with his father Prophet Yaqub (A.S);

* – Prophet Yunus (A.S) was released from the belly of the fish;

* – The sea was divided as the nation of Israel was delivered from captivity, and Pharoah’s army was destroyed.

* – Ashura is also the day when Prophet Dawud (A.S) was forgiven;

* – the kingdom of Prophet Sulaiman (A.S) was restored;

* – Prophet Isa (A.S) was raised to Jannah,

* – And Sayyidina Imam Hussain , grandson of the Holy Prophet , achieved the honour of Martyrdom at Karbala.

Voluntary [Nafl] Worship on Youm-e-Ashura

– Nafl Namaaz:

Sayyidina Rasulallah SAW said, “That person who performs four Rakaats of Namaz on the day of Ashura by reciting Surah Ikhlaas 11 times after Surah Fatiha in every Rakaat, Almighty Allah will forgive fifty years of his sins, and he will blessed with a Mimbar (pulpit) of Noor (Light).”

[Nuzhat Al-Majalis Wa Muntakhab Al-Nafa’is – Vol.1, Pg. 181]

– Fasting:

Hazrat Qatadah reports that the Holy Prophet SAW said, “On the day of Ashura, I hope that Almighty Allah will make this day a means of Kafaara [expiation] for past sins.”

[Mishkat Shareef, Pg. 179]

Abu Huraira reports that the Holy Prophet SAW said that after Ramadan, the fasts of Muharram have the greatest excellence.

[Sahih Muslim]

In the year 10 A.H., the Holy Prophet SAW was kept the fast of Ashura with the Noble Companions, who enquired, “Surely, this is also the day which is honoured by the Jews and Christians.” The Holy Prophet SAW replied, “If I am alive next year, then I shall also fast on the 9th of Muharram [as well as the 10th].”

[Mishkat Shareef, Pg. 179]

Thus, the Muslims worship is kept distinguished and separate from the ways of the non-Muslims. It is for this reason that we should not only fast on the 10th, but also on the 9th of Muharram-ul-Haraam.

– Other Virtuous Acts:

* One who stays awake on the night of Ashura [10th Muharram] gains the Sawaab [spiritual Reward] of the Angels.

[Tafseer Ruhul Bayaan]

The following various deeds for Ashura are mentioned in Ghunya li-Talibi Tariq al-Haqq, by Sayyidina Abdul Qadir Jilani :

* – Whoever fasts on this day is like one who fasts all his life.

* – Whoever clothes a naked person Allah will release him from a painful punishment.

* – He who visits a sick person, Allah will grant him a reward that will not be decreased.

* – Whoever places his hand on an orphan’s head, or feeds a hungry person or gives water to a thirsty man, Allah will feed him a feast from Paradise and will quench his thirst with Salsabil (a wine that does not intoxicate).

* – And whoever takes a bath on this day will enjoy excellent health and freedom from sickness and indolence.

* – Whoever provides generously for his family on this day, Allah will be generous to him throughout this year.

* – And whoever applies Kuhl to his eyes will never suffer from eye-sore again.

Expressing Grief on Ashura

It is permissible to express sorrow and grief on Ashura in a silent or controlled manner, upon remembrance of the events of Karbala and the sacrifice made by our beloved Imam Hussain.

However, it is not permissible to express grief in the manner used by Shias, which is to beat themselves in such a disturbing manner that blood flows from their bodies while they wail and cry loudly, also known as ‘Matam’.

Astagfirullah, this is a truly misguided act and tradition that has no place in Islam.

Verily, Sayyidina Rasulallah SAW said, “He is not from our group who slaps his cheeks, tears his clothes and cries in the manner of the people of Jahiliyyah (pre-Islamic ignorance).”

[Sahih Bukhari]
