Mark the Sacred month of Allah to build a well in the name of your loved one and receive the never-ending rewards of Sadaqah Jariyah. Allah’s Sacred Month of Muharram is a blessed and important month. It is the first month of the Hijri Calendar and is one of four sacred months where good deeds carry a special weight.
Allah (SBT) says:
“Verily the number of months with ALLAH is twelve months (in a year) so it was ordained by ALLAH on the Day when He created heavens and the earth; of them four are sacred. This is the right religion, so wrong not yourselves therein […]’’ (Al-Qur’an 9:36)
Muharram is not only a sacred & blessed month, but it is also a month of reflection for the whole Muslim Ummah. It was in the month of Muharram this month the family members of our beloved Prophet (SAW) and their companions went through unthinkable trials on the land of Karbala 1400 years ago: Imam Hussain (RA) witnessed the loss of his younag child Imam Asghar (RA) during the month of Muharram who died in his arm as he was denied access to water. Let’s reflect & recognize the sacrifice of Imam Hussain (RA) by giving a gift of water to one of the 1000 children that are still dying today due to the consumption of dirty water. Even though water is a necessity of life, to this day there are still 700 million people who don’t have access to clean water. Let’s start the month of ALLAH by giving Sadaqah Jariyah and donating a water well on the name of your loved one!
The Day of Ashura - the 10th Muharram - is a day of significant importance as Allah (SBT) bestowed salvation on ten of his prophets on that day. Here are these pivotal events which were due to change the course of humanity:
Our Beloved Prophet Muhammad (SAW) stated: “On the Day of Ashura Allah (SWT) created the seven heavens, seas, mountains, the Pen, Lawh-e-Mahfuz (the preserved tablet), the stars, the Throne of Allah (SBT), Angel Gibreel and all other angels. The first rain fell from the sky on the Day of Ashura.
Also, Ashura is the day in the time of our beloved prophet Muhammad (PBUH) Kaaba's covering used to be renewed on the Ashura day of every year. It was narrated from Hazrat Aisha(R.A): "Ashura is the day which Kaaba is covered." (Muslim, Abu Dawud)
