Benefit: The Virtue of Fasting the Day of ʿĀshūrāʾ

In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy

Muḥammad ibn Shihāb al-Zuhrī (رحمه الله) fasted on the day of ʿĀshūrāʾ whilst travelling. So he was asked: Why do you fast on the day of ʿĀshūrāʾ and break your fast in Ramaḍān [during travels]?

He replied: Verily, Ramaḍān has many days whilst the day of ʿĀshūrāʾ departs [in one day].
[Shuʿab al-Īmān lil-Bayhaqī, 3518]

Shaykh ʿAbd al-Razzāq al-Badr comments: This is from the pious predecessors devotion to this blessed time [the day of ʿĀshūrāʾ]. May Allāh enrich us with its goodness and blessings.
