A Kid was perched up on the top of a house, and looking down saw a Wolf passing under him. Immediately he began to revile and attack his enemy. ‘Murderer and thief,’ he cried, ‘what do you here near honest folks’ houses? How dare you make an appearance where your vile deeds are known?’

‘Curse away, my young friend,’ said the Wolf.

‘It is easy to be brave from a safe distance.’

Aayeshah Radiyallahu Anha reports: "The Quraysh observed the fast of Aa-shura (10th Muharram) in the days of Jaahiliyyah (pre-Islaarnic period of ignorance). Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam also observed this fast (before the Hijrah as a Nafl). (After the Hijrah) when he came to Madinah Munawwarah he observed these and commanded the Ummah also to observe it. When the command to fast in Ramadaan was revealed, it was proclaimed Fard, and the fast of Aa-shura (10th Muharram) became Nafl. Those who wished, observed them (Aa-shura (10th Muharram)) and those who did not, omitted them.

Commentary: Many narrations have been narrated on the virtues of the Saum (fast) of Aa-shura (10th Muharram). It is stated in a narration in Sahih Muslim that by observing the Saum (fast) of Arafah the sins of two years are forgiven, and by observing the fast of Aa-shura (10th Muharram) the sins of one year are forgiven. When Sayidina Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam came to Madinah Munawwarah, he observed that the Jews, who are from the Ahlul-Kitaab, also observing the fast of Aa-shura (10th Muharram). Sayidina Rasulullah Sallallahu 'Alayhi Wasallam inquired from them the reason for fasting on this day. They replied: 'Allah Ta'alah saved Musa Alayhis Salaam on this day from the oppression of Firown (Pharaoh) and also Firown was drowned on this day. In gratitude and happiness Musa Alayhis salaam fasted on this day'. Sayidina Rasulullah Sallallahu 'Alayhi Wasallam replied: "We are more entitled to follow Musa Alayhis Salaam". Therefore, Sayidina Rasulullah Sallallahu 'Alayhi Wasallam himself fasted on this day and commanded the Ummah also to fast on this day. This incident is mentioned in the Sahih Muslim.

MAS-ALAH: The original day for the observance of the fast of Aa-shura (10th Muharram) is the tenth. In the early periods of Islaam, Sayidina Rasulullah Sallallahu 'Alayhi Wasallam was in agreement with the Ahlul-kitaab, as their belief was also from the heavenly revealed religions, and was better than the religion of the Mushrikeen (the Polythiests), but in the later years the Ahlul-Kitaab were also opposed in words and deeds, which was necessary due to many factors. Once a Sahabi brought this to the notice of Sayidina Rasulullah Sallallahu 'Alayhi Wasallam were upon he replied: "If I remain alive next year I will surely fast on the ninth next year". Therefore, it is advisable not to observe the fast of the tenth only; it is preferable that the fast of the ninth be also added to it, so that one will be fulfilling the commands of both Hadith. If the ninth could not be observed then the eleventh should be added.
