A Month of Increased Reward

During Muharram, good deeds carry even more weight, offering a golden opportunity to increase your blessings. Every act of charity, every kind word, every prayer holds the potential for a greater reward.

Abu Hurayrah reported:

“I asked the Prophet: ‘Which Prayer is the best after the obligatory Prayers?’ He said: ‘Prayer during the mid of the night.’ I asked: ‘Which fasting is the best after that of Ramadan?’ He said, ‘The month of Allah that you call Muharram’”

– Ahmad, Muslim, and Abu Dawud

Making The Most Of Muharram

Fasting on Ashura

The 10th of Muharram, known as Ashura, holds a particular significance. It is recommended to fast on Ashura, a tradition that predates even Ramadan. Muslims commemorate the parting of the Red Sea by Prophet Musa (AS) and how Allah (SWT) rescued him and his people from the Pharaoh. Ashura serves as a powerful reminder of resilience, faith, and Allah’s (SWT) mercy.

A Time to Reflect

Muharram is a perfect time for introspection. Reflect on the past year and set goals for the year ahead. How can you become a better Muslim? How can you be of greater service to your community?

An Abundance of Spiritual Rewards


While there are no mandatory fasts during Muharram, it is highly recommended to fast on the 9th and 10th of Muharram (Ashura) or the 10th and 11th. These voluntary fasts can expiate sins from the previous year.

Deepen Qur’an Recitation

Dedicating time to reciting and reflecting on the Quran is a powerful way to connect with Allah (SWT) and gain spiritual nourishment.

Amplify Dhikr

Engaging in frequent remembrance of Allah (SWT) through Dhikr purifies the heart and brings you closer to Him.

Embrace Sadaqah (Charity)

Muharram marks the beginning of a new Islamic year. What better way to start it than by establishing a habit of regular charity? Giving Sadaqah not only benefits those in need but also purifies your own wealth and increases your blessings.
