Moon of Muharram (Above the ‘only’ sign)


The Prophet Muhammad was asked: “Which prayer is the best after the obligatory (five daily) prayers?”

He said: “Prayer during the middle of the night.”

The Prophet was then asked: “Which fast is the best after the fast of Ramadan?”

He replied: “The (voluntary fasts during the) month of God that you call Muharram.”
