Tomorrow as you know is a special day; it's the day of Ashura; the 10 th day of Muharram in the Islamic year. This day is celebrated each year as a commemoration of a very important event in history which is the martyrdom of the grandson of our prophet Muhammad (PBUH), El Husayn Ibn Ali at the battle of Karbala. Therefore, Ashura is a commemorative day where Muslims celebrate it by preparing some special dishes and other customs but most importantly by fasting on that day and the day before or after (i.e: 9th and 10th or 10th and 11th). Why fasting on Ashura? The answer is: "Some traditions are found in Sunni books to the effect that the Prophet (PBUH.) on migrating to Medina found the Jews fasting on the 10th of Muharram. He asked them why, and was told: "It is an auspicious day; it is the day when God delivered the children of Israel from their enemy (i.e. Pharaoh); and, therefore, Moses fasted on that day." The Prophet (PBUH.) said, "I am worthier of Moses than you are." Thereupon, he fasted on that day and ordered (the Muslims) to fast." (the quote is taken from www.al-islam.org/al-serat/fastofashura) Bear in mind that there is a great reward for fasting this day which is that God, the Almighty forgives our sins of a whole year so don't miss this opportunity So, are you going to fast tomorrow? If yes, then fast tomorrow and after tomorrow because you've already missed today. And how do you celebrate this special day? Do you make special dishes? and if you have some other customs on that day, then, what are they?
