Muharram a sacred month – Waqf a sacred institution

Hijri New Year Mubarak: May Allah grant you and your friends and families the best for the coming year. Aameen. Muharram is the first month of the Hijri calendar. This year ie 1434 the 1st of Muharram (Islamic New Year) coincides with the 15th November  2012.  The 10th day (Ashura) falls on 25 th  November  2012. Muharram literally means forbidden, but also means “sacrosanct” or “sacred”.  According to tradition,  Muharram is the Shahr Allah  – the Month of Allah – one of four sacred months after Ramadaan  in the Islamic Hijri calendar. The Noble Prophet Muhammad (peace and salutations on him and his family) recommended that Muslims fast on the  day of Ashura (10th) and also the 9th or the 11th.  It is also recommended that Muslims increase their sadaqah  or charity during this month and especially on the day of Ashura.  We also remember the ultimate sacrifices made by our predecessors in this month and on the day of Ashura.  May Allah be pleased with them.  The National Awqaf Foundation of South Africa (Awqaf SA) , in its quest to revive the sacred  institution of Waqf has chosen the sacred month of Muharram to heighten awareness and to encourage the ummah to give and sacrifice purely for  the pleasure of Allah.     What is a Waqf? A waqf  (pl: awqaf) is a  Sadaqah Jariyyah  (recurring/ongoing charity) – a  voluntary charitable endowment – a permanent , irrevocable gift to Allah from ones personal belongings or wealth in the form of ...
