Muharram

The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said:
"The best of fasting after Ramadan is fasting Allah's month of Muharram."

- Reported by Muslim

In another hadith, The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said:
“Fasting the day of `Ashura' (is of great merits), I hope that Allah will accept it as an expiation for (the sins committed in) the previous year”

- Muslim

This practice was encouraged by Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ), as narrated by Ibn 'Abbas (RA):
“The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) fasted on the day of `Ashura’ and ordered the people to fast on it. The people said, "O Messenger of Allah, it is a day that the Jews and Christians honor." The Prophet said, "When the following year comes, Allah willing, we shall fast on the ninth." The death of the Prophet came before the following year.”

- Muslim and Abu Dawud
