Muharram 2023 | 20 July to 18 August 2023

Muḥarram is the first month of the Islamic calendar. Muharram 2023 starts from 20 July to 18 August 2023. It is one of the four sacred months of the year when warfare is forbidden. The Tenth day of Muharram is known as the Day of Ashura

The Islamic calendar is lunar and months begin when the first crescent of a new moon is sighted. The Islamic calendar year has 354 or 355 days in a year, which is 11 to 12 days shorter than the Gregorian calendar. The Gregorian calendar is a solar calendar based on the earth's revolution around the sun.

In the month of Muharram, one should worship Allah a lot. For information, worship of Allah should be done at all times and while sleeping or awake. There is no particular month or day for the worship of Allah. The worship of Allah can be done by the method of spiritual practice prescribed by the true spiritual saint, who is said to be Bakhbar in Surat Al-Furqan 25:59 of the Quran . Muharram, a famous mourning celebration celebrated in Muslim society, is based only on folk beliefs. Hazrat Muhammad ji never said that one should shed blood for Allah or hurt oneself. Nor is there any evidence of this in the holy scriptures of Muslim society

Fasting on first Muharram is highly recommended to seek fulfillment of needs

اللَّهُ أَكْبَرُ اللَّهُ أَكْبَرُ اللَّهُ أَكْبَرُ رَبِّي وَ رَبُّكَ اللَّهُ لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا هُوَ رَبُّ الْعَالَمِينَ الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ الَّذِي خَلَقَنِي وَ خَلَقَكَ وَ قَدَّرَكَ فِي مَنَازِلِكَ [وَ قَدَّرَ مَنَازِلَكَ‌] وَ جَعَلَكَ آيَةً لِلْعَالَمِينَ يُبَاهِي اللَّهُ بِكَ الْمَلَائِكَةَ

Allah is the Great! Allah is the Great! Allah is the Great! Allah is my Lord and your Lord! Allah is the Lord of the worlds. There are no Gods but Allah. Praise be to Allah, Who created me, created you, destined Your Path and established you as a sign for the people of the world. Allah takes pride in you near the angels.

اللَّهُمَّ أَهِلَّهُ عَلَيْنَا بِالْأَمْنِ وَ الْإِيمَانِ وَ السَّلَامَةِ وَ الْإِسْلَامِ وَ الْغِبْطَةِ وَ السُّرُورِ وَ الْبَهْجَةِ وَ ثَبِّتْنَا عَلَى طَاعَتِكَ وَ الْمُسَارَعَةِ فِيمَا يُرْضِيكَ

O' Allah! Please let this month be a period of peace, faith, safety and total submission to Your will for us plus happiness, pleasure and joy. Please establish us firmly in Your obedience and make us walk apace swiftly to that which You like and approve.

اللَّهُمَّ بَارِكْ لَنَا فِي شَهْرِنَا هَذَا وَ ارْزُقْنَا خَيْرَهُ وَ بَرَكَتَهُ وَ يُمْنَهُ وَ عَوْنَهُ وَ فَوْزَهُ وَ اصْرِفْ عَنَّا شَرَّهُ وَ بَلَاءَهُ وَ فِتْنَتَهُ بِرَحْمَتِكَ يَا أَرْحَمَ الرَّاحِمِينَ.
