Shaikh ’Uthaimeen, may Allaah have mercy on him, said, “The Month of Allaah, al-Muharram, is the one between [the month of] Dhul-Hijjah and Safar, about which the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم said, ‘… the most excellent fast after (fasting) in the month of Ramadan is the fast in Allaah’s Month of al-Muharram …,’ and it is established that one should fast the 10th [Thu. 14th Nov. 2013], or the 10th and the 9th [Thu. 14th and Wed. 13th Nov. 2013], or the 9th, 10th and 11th [Wed. 13th, Thu. 14th, and Fri. 15th Nov. 2013] from it.”
