The virtue of fasting ‘Ashoora’
DUA OF ASHOORA - <<< Click here
Does it expiate for everything, even major sins?
What is the reason for venerating this day?.
“Fasting the day of ‘Arafah I hope Allaah will
expiate thereby for the year before it and the year after it, and fasting the
day of ‘Ashoora’ I hope Allaah will expiate thereby for the year that came
before it.” Narrated by Muslim, 1162. This is by the bounty that Allaah
bestows upon us, whereby fasting one day expiates for the sins of a whole
year. And Allaah is the Owner of great bounty.
Fasting the day of ‘Arafaah is an expiation for two years, and the day of ‘Ashoora is an expiation for one year, and if a person’s Ameen coincides with the Ameen of the angels, his previous sins will be forgiven… Each of the things mentioned may bring expiation. If he does something that expiates for minor sins he will be expiated, and if there are no minor or major sins, it will be recorded for him as good deeds and he will rise in status thereby… If there is one or more major sins and no minor sins, we hope that it will reduce his major sins. Al-Majmoo’ Sharh al-Muhadhdhab, part 6.
Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyah (may Allaah have mercy on him) said: The expiation of purification, prayer, and fasting Ramadaan, ‘Arafah and ‘Ashoora’ applies to minor sins only. Al-Fataawa al-Kubra, part 5.
