month of Muharram is without any evidence or proof. It may be first or tenth of
Muharram or the events taking place during the Ashura or the whole month of
Muharram. Even there is no narration in support of serving food on tenth of
Muharram. The holy prophet, SallAllah-u-Alaihi-wa-Sallam, by declaring Muharram

all the events related to joy and happiness can be celebrated during the month
Muharram is a month of sanctity and reverence, and there ought to be no war in
