We would like to announce that Ashura is on Thursday 14th November (10th Muharram 1435). We advise all Muslims to fast on Wednesday and Thursday, in order to ensure Ashura is not missed. Our warm greetings to fellow Muslims around the world in arrival of the new Islamic year.

The Virtues of Fasting 'Ashura'

Ibn 'Abbas (may Allah be pleased with them both) said: "I never saw the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) so keen to fast any day and give it priority over any other than this day, the day of 'Ashura', and this month, meaning Ramadan." [Reported by al-Bukhari]
