As-Salamu `alaykum. Are we allowed to hold wedding ceremony or other parties during the month of Muharram? We are told that the month of Muharram is for grief and sadness and it is not right to hold any ceremonies or parties in this month.
What is the Islamic perspective concerning the acts of the Shiite on the day of `Ashura'? We see them hurting themselves. Does this have any basis in Islam?
Dear sheikh, as-salamu `alaykum wa rahmatullah wa Barakatuh. What is the significance of fasting on the Day of `Ashura', i.e., the 10th day of Muharram? Is it to remember the martyrdom of Imam Husain, may Allah be pleased with him?
Dear scholars, as-salamu `alaykum. It was reported that when the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) arrived in Madinah and found the Jews celebrating `Ashura’ by fasting, he ordered the Muslims to fast as well. How would you explain the fact that he (peace and blessings be upon him) had forbidden Muslims before to copy the People of the Book in many things, yet he allowed this? Jazakum Allah khayran.
