Ibn Abbas reported: "The Prophet came to Madinah and found the Jews fasting the day of Ashura. He asked them: "Why are you fasting this day?" They said: "This is a great day. Allah saved Mousa (Moses) and the tribes of Israel from their enemies on this day and therefore Mousa fasted on it. "The Prophet said: "We have more of a right to Mousa than you." So he fasted on that day also and ordered the people to fast on that day." [al-Bukhari and Muslim].

A version narrated by Imaam Ahmad adds: “This is the day on which the Ark settled on Mount Joodi, so Nooh fasted this day in thanksgiving.”

Abd-Allaah ibn ‘Abbaas (RA) said: “When the Messenger of Allaah (SAW) fasted on ‘Aashooraa’ and commanded the Muslims to fast as well, they said, ‘O Messenger of Allaah, it is a day that is venerated by the Jews and Christians.’ The Messenger of Allaah  (SAW) said, ‘If I live to see the next year, InshaAllaah, we will fast on the ninth day too.’ But it so happened that the Messenger of Allaah  (SAW) passed away before the next year came.” (Reported by Muslim, 1916).

 Al-Shafi and his companions, Ahmad, Ishaaq and others said: “It is mustahabb to fast on both the ninth and tenth days, because the Prophet  (SAW) fasted on the tenth, and intended to fast on the ninth.”

Furthermore, Rasoolillah (SAW) said: “For fasting the day of ‘Aashooraa’, I hope that Allaah will accept it as expiation for the year that went before.” (Reported by Muslim, 1976).

Imaam al-Nawawi (rh) said regarding this day: “It expiates for all minor sins, i.e., it brings forgiveness of all sins except major sins.”

Don't forget to fast tomorrow!!!


If you follow N. American sighting: http://www.crescentwatch.org/cgi-bin/Cw/cw.cgi
Crescentwatch has received several reports of sightings in North America of the new crescent for the month of Muharram 1429. Therefore, Thursday, January 10, 2008 is the 1st of Muharram, 1429H in North America, starting the Islamic New Year and one of the 4 sacred months.

If you follow Saudi http://www.saudiarabianews.net/ I think they decided that Friday is the 10th.

and I think ISNA pre-calculations http://www.moonsighting.com/ Muharram 10th is Saturday.


And it is good to fast the day before too so it'd be like:


N.American Sighting ppls ===> Fast Thurs. (& daybefore extra)

ISNA ====== Fast  Fri. (& daybefore extra)

Saudi ====> Fast  Sat. (& daybefore extra)

Ya I saw the moon on Wednesday after maghrib driving back from Troy, it was so beautiful, first time I saw a crescent right after Maghrib, really beautiful subhanAllah. I recommend all to try and watch for it, even if your in NY, its just beautiful subhanAllah.

But those who believe and work deeds of righteousness, and believe in the (Revelation) sent down to Muhammad - for it is the Truth from their Lord,- He will remove from them their ills and improve their condition. - Holy Quran (47:02)
