MUHARRAM is the first month of the Islamic calendar. Muharram means "Forbidden." Even before Islam, this month was always known as a scared month in which all unlawful acts were forbidden, prominently the shedding of blood. It is one of the four sanctified months about which Allah Ta'ala says: "The number of months in the sight of Allah are twelve, so ordained by Allah, the day He created the heavens and the earth; Of them four are sacred. That is the correct religion, so wrong not yourselves therein." (Surah Tawbah - verse 36) The four sanctified months according to authentic Ahaadeeth are the months of Zul- Qa'dah, Zul-Hijjah, Muharram and Rajab. The sanctity of these months was observed in the shariah of all the previous Prophets. "Allah Ta'ala made them (i.e. the four months) sacred and increased their sanctity. Hence He declared a sin therein more severe and increased the virtue of good deeds and the reward thereof." (Ibn Katheer Vol.2)

The best of fasts besides the month of Ramadhaan is the fast during Allah's month of Muharram and the best of Salaah besides the Faraaidh (obligatory salaah) is the Tahajjud Salaah (performed after midnight). (Muslim,Vol. 1)

The Tenth of Muharram, known as the day of Aashura, is a very significant day in the Islamic Calendar. Nabi (sallallahu alaiyhi wassallam) has exhorted the Ummah to fast on this day. Sayyadatina Aaisha (rahiyallahu anha) reports that Nabi (sallallahu alaiyhi wassallam) ordered the observance of the fast of Aashura.

Sayyadina Ibn Abbaas(radhiyallahu anhu) says: "I did not see Rasulullah (sallallahu alaiyhi wassallam) anxiously await the fast of any day, which he gave preference to (over other days), except this day of Aashura and the month of Ramadhaan." (Bukhari, Vol. 1)

Question: A drivers who was excessively speeding meets in an accident. A person loses his life. Will the driver be held responsible?

Answer: If the driver violated traffic laws and was speeding, he will be considered responsible for the death of the person. This will be considered as Qatl Khata (An Unintentional Killing). The driver will be liable to pay Diyyat (blood money) and observe Kaffarah (fast for two months continuously).

The blood money is 100 camels or 10 000 Dirhams or 1000 Dinaars. 1 Dirham is equivalent to 3.06 grams of Silver, 1 Dinaar is equivalent to 4.374 grams of Gold. The amount may be paid in cash immediately or over a period of three years.

والدية في الخطأ أخماس منها (من بنت مخاض وبنت لبون وحقة إلي جذعة) ومن إبن مخاض أخماسا أو ألف دينار من الذهب أو عشرة آلاف درهم من الورق. الدر المختار مع رد المحتار (573\6).
