The Islamic year begins with Muharram Ul Haram, the first month of the Hirji Calendar. Muharram teaches lessons of sacrifice, selflessness; patience, seeking the pleasure of Allah Taala etc., Muharram is so called because it is a sacred month. The tenth day of Muharram, known as Ashurah, has many distinctive features.

Allah created the heavens and the earth on this blessed day. He gave His infinite blessings and bounties to many of His prophets and delivered them and the children of Israel from the clutches of their enemies. He created Hazrat Adam in this month and pardoned him of his mistake.

Hazrat Noahs Ark landed safely on Mount Judi and Noah fasted on this day in thanksgiving. Allah saved Hazrat Ibrahim from fire and rescued Hazrat Moosa and his people from Pharaoh.

The Islamic holy scriptures mention the following desirable acts on this day of Ashurah: Observing fast; giving in charity as much as one can afford; performing Nafi Salat prayers; reciting Surah Ikhlas 1000 times; spending time in the company of pious Ulema; tending an orphan; being generous to one''s relatives; visiting the sick; making friends with enemies; reciting Dua-e-Ashurah and visiting the holy shrine, mosques and the sacred tombs of Muslims.
