Significance of YOUM -E-ASHURA 1OTH MUHARRAM




Significance of Muharram

The month of Muharram is very important and respected in the opinions of great Sufis and scholars. Ghauth-e-Azam Hazrat Shaykh Abdul Qadri Jilani (ra) in his Ghunya al-Talibeen discusses the excellence of Muharram with particular reference to the day of Ashura (10th Muharram). He says “The day of Ashura possesses a very historical significance. On this day”:

• Hazrat Adam (peace be upon him) was forgiven by Allah after he was expelled from paradise.
• Allah protected Hazrat Nuh (peace be upon him) and his followers in the ark from the storm.
• Allah demolished the fire created by Nimrod to save Hazrat Ibrahim (peace be upon him), who was thrown into it.
• Allah directly interacted and spoke to Hazrat Musa (peace be upon him) and blessed him with the commandments.
• Hazrat Ayub (peace be upon him), who was suffering from leprosy was cured on this day.
• Hazrat Ya’qub (peace be upon him) was reunited with his son Hazrat Yusuf (peace be upon him).
• Hazrat Yunus (peace be upon him) was relieved from the stomach of the fish.
• Pharaoh’s army was demolished and the Bani Israel were saved from his captivity as the sea was divided.• On this day Hazrat Dawood (peace be upon him) was pardoned.
• Hazrat Suleiman’s (peace be upon him) kingdom was re-established.
• Hazrat Isa (peace be upon him) was taken into Jannah.• Hazrat Hussain (May Allah be pleased with him), the grandson of the Prophet (peace be upon him) gained the honour of Shahadat (martyrdom)

Hazrat Shaykh Abdul Qadir Jilani (ra) further states certain practices, which should be followed and performed on the day of Ashura to receive maximum benefit.

• Whoever is generous towards his relatives and family on this day, Allah, the almighty will provide for him/her throughout the year.• Whoever observes fast on this, it is as if he has fasted all his life.
• He who visits sick and ill people on this day, Allah, the merciful will bless him with rewards, which will not be deleted from his account.
• He who feeds the hungry, gives water to the thirsty or places his hands above the head of an orphan, Allah, the ultimate Provider, will provide food for him from paradise and gift him with non-intoxicating wine (salsabil)
• Those, who are suffering from sickness, illnesses, torments or health problems, should take a bath, and Allah, the Curer, will shower His mercy upon him and grant him a cure.
