How To Observe Muharram With Fasts & 3 Misconceptions Especially on 10th Muharram / Ashura | Mufti Menk

We are in the month of Muharram , which is the first month of the Islamic calendar. It has to do with something haram, something prohibited. So what is haram and why is this month called Muharram?

 

We’re supposed to be making resolutions every night. We’re supposed to be renewing our vows to with Allah (swt) every night. We’re supposed to be seeking forgiveness every night.

We should be making peace with Allah (swt) every single day. Seek forgiveness; promise Allah you are going to be a better person. Never give up. If you’ve fallen into sin again and again, you need to go back to Allah again and again and again.

May Allah (swt) grant us a beautiful returning to Him.

Some people believe that we are not allowed to get married in the month of Muharram because it is bad luck. Unfortunately, that is totally baseless.

Some people believe we are not allowed to wear any good clothing, which is also baseless.

And some people believe the opposite, saying that we are supposed to be celebrating to the degree that we should be partying and so on this day. That is also baseless, but rather it is more about the lesson.

some people don’t realize that in the month of Muharram, Allah (Swt) has ordained certain things and Allah (swt) has chosen the month of Muharram for certain things. He calls it Shahrullahi Al-Muharram.

let’s make resolutions on a daily basis and let’s look into the resolutions we’ve made and see how best are practicing upon them. Let’s see how best we’re actually fulfilling them.

Remember, if you have bad habits, this is the time to quit those bad habits.
