The Prophet was Eager to Fast Ashura

fast ashura

The Prophet ﷺ was eager to fast the day of Ashura. Even though he is a man that forgiven by Allah all his past and future sins. Then, we should also be eager to fast the day of Ashura.

A hadith from ‘Ubaydallah ibn Abi Yazid. He says that Ibn Abbas (may Allah blesses him) says,

مَا رَأَيْتُ النَّبِيَّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ يَتَحَرَّى صِيَامَ يَوْمٍ فَضَّلَهُ عَلَى غَيْرِهِ إِلَّا هَذَا الْيَوْمَ يَوْمَ عَاشُورَاءَ وَهَذَا الشَّهْرَ يَعْنِي شَهْرَ رَمَضَانَ

I did not see the Prophet ﷺ as eager to fast a day and preferring it over others except for this day of Ashura and this month of Ramadan” [Saheeh al-Bukhari]

Tomorrow is 10th of al-Muharram inshaAllah, the day to fast Ashura. Please remind yourself and people around you.
