Hadith of the Day

It is narrated from authentic hadith that fasting on the day of Ashoora, i.e. the 10th of Muharram in the Islamic calendar, expiates for the sins of the past year. The Messenger of Allah (pbuh) loved to fast on this day and urged others to do so as well.

It was narrated that Ibn ‘Abbaas (may Allah be pleased with him) said: I never saw the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) so keen to make sure he fasted any day and preferring it over another except this day, the day of ‘Ashoora’, and this month – meaning Ramadaan.

Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 1867.
