Day of Ashura Iftar & Lecture
posted: 9/27/2017

Fasting is recommended (Sunnah) on this day of Ashura.
‘Ashura ‘ commemorates the day Allah saved the Children of Israel from Pharoah. Fasting on Muharram 10 (Saturday, September 30), known as the Day of 'Ashura', expiates for the sins of the past year. 

Ibn 'Abbas reported: The Messenger of Allah fasted on the day of 'Ashura' and ordered the people to fast on it. The people said, "O Messenger of Allah, it is a day that the Jews and Christians honor." The Prophet said, "When the following year comes, Allah willing, we shall fast on the ninth." The death of the Prophet came before the following year. (Muslim and Abu Dawud)
The Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) intended to fast on both the 9th and 10th of Muharram. 

A special program to reflect upon the significance of this day will be held, Insha-Allah, at the Masjid on Saturday September 30 beginning at 6 PM with a speech and Adkhar, followed by an Iftar dinner.
Maghrib Salah will be at 6:37 PM. Everyone is invited to this event.
