Muharram & Ashura

I pray that all of you that were able to fast or had the intention to fast will attain the rewards for fasting in this month and of the good deeds performed and forgiveness for any mistakes.

The Prophet may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him said:

“All children of Adam repetitively make mistakes, but the best of those who make mistakes are those who repent the most.” (Ibn Maajah)

“By Him in Whose Hand is my soul (i.e. God), if you did not commit sins, God would do away with you and replace you with a people that committed sins. They would seek forgiveness from God and He would forgive them. (Saheeh Muslim #4936)

  1. aameen. These last few days of fasting have been refreshing (with the exception of the dizzy spells and headaches. May they be a purification). I think i will take advantage of the next few months of short days and fast more sunnah’s, insha’Allah. I just need to be reminded from time to time. I nominate YOU!

  2. Alhamdulillah Umm Adam, you’re very kind. In sha Allah, we can remind each other. 🙂

    After Ramadan and the makeup fasts and sunnah fasts in Shawwal, I begin to miss fasting. Then Dhul-hijjah and Muharram come and I fast more again in these months.

    I’ve begun to look forward to the fasting on the 13,14, and 15 of each month. It’s an amazing reminder and humbling experience where I get to check myself.

    I haven’t had too many episodes of dizziness or headaches since I started taking proper suhur and drinking between 2-3 liters of water in the overnight period before the fast.

  3. As-salaamu’alaykum wa Rahmatu Llahi wa Barakatuhu my dear sister,

    Jazak’Allah for this post. It’s a great reminder of how important it is to ask for forgiveness…and know we will never be perfect, and are always at the mercy of Allah.

    You have a wonderful blog.. so much to read, and benefit from. Masha’Allah.

    Ma’salaama
    Farhana

  4. Asalamu alaykum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh,

    Umm Adam: I don’t know anything about nursing yet, may Allah make it easy for you.

    Farhana: Allah’s mercy is so vast, we just have to keep turning to Him in repentance for our mistakes.
