Salam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh My dear brothers and sisters, the first thing of Ashura the ninth and 10th of the month of Muharram is something established in authentic sunnah of the Prophet salAllahu alayhi wasallam from the Hadith with the best, or the Allahu anha. However, there are certain practices, even beliefs that have crept in, that are not from Islam, in any way, shape, or form. Certain events throughout history that may have occurred around that time, have now become the practice of certain communities. And it is important for us to adhere to the teachings of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and to fast the day and to understand the day of Ashura
correctly and not to miss out on the reward of one having one sins forgiven for the previous year for fasting, the 10th we add to that the ninth, if you're unable to do the ninth or you didn't do the ninth it is permitted for you to do the 10th and the 11th being different from a huddle kitab. So, certain practices like harming oneself or causing oneself distress in any way, shape or form is certainly not from the teachings of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam it is not the practice of the Sahaba or the allowing them to behave in such a way. Therefore Muharram must be understood in the correct way. And any form of Shabbat, any form of doubts that are put your way. It is important
to take those if you do not know the answer to 100 and to the people of knowledge so that they can be answered but isn't related. And that you can understand how to worship Allah subhanaw taala correctly on these days, other practices that have been inserted, for example, I'm going to visit the graves of certain family members on this day. It is not from the Sunnah of the Prophet Addison to specify this time to go and do that, or to have a big celebration. What we were told is too fast on these particular days. We ask Allah subhanaw taala to guide us to that which is correct. I mean, was Salam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh
