The Day of Ashura


The Day of Ashura 
is on the 10th of the month of Muharram, the first month of the Islamic lunar calendar.
An important fast day for Muslims.  

The Day of Ashura, is marked by Muslims with a voluntary day of fasting which commemorates the day that Moses and his followers were saved from the Egyptian Pharaoh by God creating a path in the Sea. 

From that day forward Moses fasts this day, and so did our prophet Muhammad (PBUH) and advised Muslims to fast on the Day of Ashura. It is recommended to fast on the 9th and 10th of Muharram (Ashura), following prophet Muhammad’s (PBUH) Sunnah.


Qortoba Institute reminds you - if you can - fast those days.
