Al-Muharram, the First Sacred Month in the Year

muharram

We are now in the month of Muharram. The first month of Hijri calendar system. The month of Muharram is one of four holy months in Islam.

A hadith from Abu Bakrah (may Allah blesses him), that the Prophet ﷺ says:

السَّنَةُ اثْنَا عَشَرَ شَهْرًا، مِنْهَا أَرْبَعَةٌ حُرُمٌ، ثَلاَثَةٌ مُتَوَالِيَاتٌ ذُو الْقَعْدَةِ وَذُو الْحِجَّةِ وَالْمُحَرَّمُ، وَرَجَبُ مُضَرَ الَّذِي بَيْنَ جُمَادَى وَشَعْبَانَ

“… The year is twelve months, of which four are sacred: three consecutive months, Dhulqa’dah, Dhulhijjah and al-Muharram, and Rajab of Mudar which comes between Jumada and Sha’ban.” [Saheeh al-Bukhari].

The reward will be multiplied in this sacred month. So pay attention to what you do.
