Question: What is obligatory upon the Muslim
to do on the day of 'Aashooraa..
(tenth day of Muharram), and is Zakaat al-Fitr obligatory
(on that day)?
It is legislated for the Muslim to fast on the day of 'Aashooraa.,
for that which has been confirmed that the Prophet (sal-Allaahu
`alayhe wa sallam) ordered fasting on (the day of) 'Aashooraa.,
however, when (the fasting of) Ramadhaan was obligated, whoever
preferred to fast ('Aashooraa.)
did so and whoever preferred not to (do so) did not. And there
is no Zakaat al-Fitr (to be paid) on the day of 'Aashooraa.
as there is on `Eed
al-Fitr after the month of Ramadhaan.
with Allaah lies all the success, and may Allaah send prayers
and salutations upon our Prophet Muhammad (sal-Allaahu
`alayhe wa sallam)
and his family and his companions.
