    The 10th of Muharram ul Haram and Ashurah

    muharramandashurah - The 10th of Muharram ul Haram and Ashurah

    In 2010 Ashurah will be observed on 17th or 18th of December subject to the sighting of moon.

    The Islamic year starts with Muharram ul Haram, the first month of the Hijri Calendar. Muharram ul Haram is one of the four months of Islamic Lunar Calendar declared sacred by Allah (SWT) in the Holy Qur'an. The other three months of Islamic Lunar Calendar are Rajab al-Murajab, Dhu al-Qa'dah and Dhu al-Hijjah.

    In the Holy Qur'an verse 59 of Surah An Nisa, Allah (SWT) says:

    "O you who believe! Obey Allah, and obey the Messenger and "Ulil Amr" (Those who are authorized to command) from among you."

    While followers of other religions spend their beginning month in rubbish sort of ways to celebrate, the first month of Islam teaches us lessons of caution, good counselling, knowledge of Allah (SWT), sacrifice, selflessness, patience and seeking the pleasure of Allah (SWT).

    The tenth day of Muharram (Ashurah) has many unique virtues and characteristics. Allah (SWT) created the heavens and the earth on this blessed day. On this day He gave His countless blessings and bounties to many of His Prophets and delivered them from the command of their enemies.

    Allah (SWT) created Hazrat Adam (Alaihis-Salam) in this month, pardoned him of his mistake, and Hazrat Noah’s (Alaihis-Salam) Ark landed successfully on Mount Judi, and he saved Hazrat Ibrahim (Alaihis-Salam) from fire and rescued Hazrat Musa (Alaihis-Salam) from Pharaoh.
