Ashura falls on the 10th day of Muharram, which is the first month of the Islamic Lunar Calendar. In Islam, it is considered as a month of pure sacredness and sanctity; being one of the four months that Allah chose to be sacred. In this month and the occasion of Ashura; Muslims should highly adhere to patience. The Prophet Muhammad (SAW) is reported to have said:

“The year is twelve months of which four are sacred, the three consecutive months of Dhul-Qa'dah, Dhul-Hijjah and Muharram, and Rajab Mudar which comes between Jumadah and Sha'ban" (Al-Bukhari, 2958).

This Ashura, let’s turn to Allah(SWT) and ask Him to bestow us with the ability to perform good deeds and gain His reward. Moreover, pray for this New Islamic Year to be one of peace, solidarity, harmony and cooperation for Muslims across the globe.
