Fasting in the Month of Muharram
The blessed month of Muharram is upon us. There are two things we should do in this month. One is to fast on the 10th of Muharram and the other is to spend on family on the 10th of Muharram. Some scholars even say these are sunnah actions of Muharram. As far as fasting goes we shouldnt fast just on the 10th because other people also fast on this day, but we should fast on either the 9th or the 11th along with the 10th. Meaning, either fast 9th and 10th of Muharram or fast 10th and 11th of Muharram. Also, spend on your family, especially with regards to their needs, on the 10th of Muharram. The person who spends on his family members on this day will see blessings in his sustenance throughout the rest of the year.
