Charity on ‘Aashura


One should ensure that he distributes charities on ‘Aashura, the 10th Muharram, because Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

“Whoever gives charity on the 10th of Muharram will be rewarded for never ever rejecting a beggar.”



This is part of a lengthy narration which has been declared a fabrication by the Muhaddithun. The narration is therefore not suitable to quote.

And Allah Ta’ala  Knows best.
