What Is The Significance Of Ashura? Why is it important?
Shaykh Waleed Basyouni explains
Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato. My brothers and sisters, it's already the month of mahalo shadow light mahalo. This is one of the secret months, one of the special month in the year and in this month, there is a very special day, the day of Ashura, the 10th Do you know that this day fasting it was obligatory upon every and each Muslim. And after that Allah Subhana Allah abrogated this rule, and only made the month of Ramadan obligated on us to fast but still fasting the day fashola. It's highly recommended for each and every one of us. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam told us it is very important for a Muslim, that if you fast this day, Allah subhana wa tada will raise the
sense of the previous year. And this sense, will not include the major since the Cabal, why we say that because Allah Subhana Allah said in AlHassan Are you gonna say good deeds will raise bad deeds, because the fasting the day for Ashura is such a great good deed. So the amount of goodness can take care of so much sense that so many sins that you have committed last year even can accommodate the sins of the whole previous year. And as much as you make this day, perfect, you're fasting in this date, perfect, and you perfectly perfect in your CRM. And this day, as much as we'll erase from the previous year, I'm saying this because you might say shefali You know what, I fasted the day of
alpha and last month, and you the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, If you fast the day of alpha, it will take care of the sins that you committed last year and upcoming year. So if my last year sins have been taking care of alpha, why would they care about fasting Ashura?
The answer for this simple as I said earlier, the more you perfect your CRM, the more you erase from the
sins of the previous year, because sometimes maybe you faster the diff autofill but your fasting was not that good was not that perfect. So it will not be a strong enough to wipe everything done in the last year. That's basically the perfect, idealistic
scenario if you have a perfect fasting, so it will erase everything in the past. But if your fasting is not that perfect, also, it will not wipe out everything in the past. So you will need another time. It's like your claws. If you wash it one time, and sometimes you wash it again and again and again until you clean it completely. That's exactly the concept here. So this the case, I will highly recommend you brothers and sisters, not to miss this day. They've been a best when he traveled when he used to travel. And the dishwasher light comes while he's traveling, he will fast the day of Ashura, but guess what? When he traveled during the month of Ramadan, he would break his
fast. So one of his students said algebra lacamas haba sola. It is so any strange, or companions of Muhammad, you break your fast from Milan while you're traveling? And you wouldn't do that for Europe. He said yes. As for the month of Ramadan, Allah said, for the two men am in Ohio, you can make up these days of Ramadan and other days in the year, but for Ashura, you don't have this chance. See the filth of the Sahaba the understanding of the companions and if it shows you anything, it shows you the importance of fasting this day. So make sure that you fast this day, avoid the hot off, do the as much as you can good deed during this day. melas parrot Allah make us
