{Islamic Mailing Group} Sacred month of Muharram begins.

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 the 
four sacred months concerning which Allaah says (interpretation 
of the meaning): 

"Verily, the number of months with Allaah is twelve 
months (in a year), so it was ordained by Allaah on the 
Day when He created the heavens and the earth; of 
them, four are sacred. That is the right religion, so 
wrong not yourselves therein…" [Surah al-Tawbah 9:36] 


Abu Bakrah (may Allaah be pleased with him) reported that the 
Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: 
"The year is twelve months of which four are sacred, the 
three consecutive months of Dhu'l-Qa'dah, Dhu'l-Hijjah 
and Muharram, and Rajab Mudar which comes between 
Jumaada and Sha'baan." (Reported by al-Bukhaari, 2958) 
Muharram is so called because it is a sacred (muharram) month 
and to confirm its sanctity. 

Allaah's words (interpretation of the meaning): "…so wrong not 
yourselves therein…" mean do not wrong yourselves in these 
sacred months, because sin in these months is worse than in 
other months
