    Default Desirable acts for the Day of Ashoorah.

    Worship on the Night Before Aashura

    Hazrat Ali RadiyAllahu Anhu narrates that RasoolAllah Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam said, ‘Whosoever revives the night before Aashura with his worship, Allah will make him live as long as He wishes.’

    Bathing on Aashura

    RasoolAllah Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam said, ‘Whoever takes a bath (performs Ghusl) on the day of Aashura will be saved from all illnesses except death.’

    Good Deeds on Aashura

    RasoolAllah Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam says, ‘Whosoever applies surma made of stones on the day of Aashura, will have his eyes protected. Whosoever visits sick on this day will get reward of visiting all the sick of the world. And whosoever gives a drink to a needy person will get the reward of doing all the good deeds in the world.’

    Compassion Towards an Orphan

    Allah’s beloved Rasool Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam has said, ‘Whosoever strokes the head of an orphan with his hands (loves him and attends to his needs) on the day of Aashura, then for every hair, Allah will raise the status of that person in Jannah. [Ghunyatut Taalibeen]

    Voluntary Prayers of Aashura

    Abu Hurairah RadiyAllahu Anhu reports that one should pray four rak’ats on the day of Aashura, in each rak’at after Surah Fatiha pray Surah Zilzal, Surah Kaafiroon and Surah Ikhlaas once and after Salaam, pray Durood Sharif 70 times.

    In another narration it is stated whoever prays four rak’ats on the day of Aashura in a manner that after each rak’at pray Surah Ikhlas fifty times after Surah Fatiha then his sins of the previous fifty years as well as the fifty future years will be forgiven. [Ghunyatut Taalibeen]

    The Gatherings of Muharram

    To organise gatherings in Muharram especially on the occasion of Aashura to remember Imam Hussain RadiyAllahu Anhu and his sacrifice is recommended and rewarding as long as the narrations mentioned are authentic.
    Aa’la Hazrat Imam Ahmed Raza Khan RadiyAllahu states, ‘When the remembrance of Imam Hussain RadiyAllahu Anhu is kept free of unauthentic and fabricated narrations, it is indeed rewarding as is mentioned in a narration:
    ’Mercy descends when the pious are remembered.’
    Hazrat Allama Amjad Ali Aazmi Rehmatullah Alaih states, ‘to hold gatherings to remember Imam Hussain RadiyAllahu Anhu in Muharram is permissible as long as the traditions and stories mentioned are correct. These kind of stories teaches us patience and to submit ourselves to the Will of Allah. It also inspires us to be steadfast on the principles of Islam under all circumstances. We should also remember the companions of RasoolAllah Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam and their glorious history in order to distinguish our gatherings from that of the Shias.’

    The Niyaz (Offerings) of Imam Hussain RadiyAllahu Anhu

    Offer ‘niyaz’ (Halim or Sabil / Sharbat) for Imam Hussain RadiyAllahu Anhu & Shohda-e-Karbala (means that the reward goes to Imam Hussain RadiyAllahu Anhu).

    Khichda or Halim

    Some people also question the general custom of Muslims to make ‘Khichda’ on this day. It is reported the arc of Nooh Alaihis Salaam rested at the Mount of Joody after the mighty flood on the day of Aashura. Hazrat Nooh Alaihis Salaam mixed all the seven type of grains and cereals in a large pot and cooked it, this dish was later called Khichda. Thus it is reported that to make Khichda on this day is a sunnah of Nuh Alaihis Salaam. Moreover Hazrat Khwaja Nizamuddin Awliya RadiyAllahu Anhu narrates that whosoever mixes seven types of grain on this day will get a reward for each grain and will have a sin forgiven. [Tafseer e Roohul Bayan]

    Desirable acts for the Day of Ashoorah.

    The Ulema of Ahle Sunnat have listed the following desirable acts for the Day of Ashoorah. Some Ulema are of the opinion that these are listed in Hadith, while others attribute this to the sayings of Hazrat Ali (May Allah be pleased with him). In any case they are all good acts and as such should be practiced on this blessed day. These acts are:

    To cut one’s nails (if big)

    In some books the following 3 acts too have been added as desirable acts for the Day of Ashoorah:
    To visit the sick

    Hazrat Abdullah bin Masud (May Allah be pleased with him), a Companion of the beloved Prophet (Peace be Upon Him) reports the following saying of the Messenger of Allah:
    "Whomsoever prepares ample food an drink for his family on this sacred day and delights in feeding them generously, Almighty Allah will increase his provisions for that year, and place much blessings and good therein."
