As salaamu 'alaykum,

Shaykh Muhammad Ali Ferkous hafidhahullaah said,
I want to draw attention to a spread mistake which consists in designating the term "Muharram" without the letters Alif and Laam (Al - a definite article in Arabic). The correct form is to say "Al-Muharram" as it is mentioned in many prophetic hadiths, and because the Arabs did not mention this month in their speeches and poetry but with the definite article "Al", which is not the case with the other months. So, this denomination is unwritten and not according to a rule.
For the full article plz. click The ruling regarding fasting in the whole month of Al-Muharram.

A hadeeth of the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم quoted by the Shaykh حفظه الله (arabic transcription available here:في حكم صيام شهر الله المحرم):
<<أَفْضَلُ الصِّيَامِ بَعْدَ رَمَضَانَ شَهْرُ اللهِ المُحَرَّمِ، وَأَفْضَلُ الصَّلاَةِ بَعْدَ الفَرِيضَةِ صَلاَةُُ اللَّيْلِ >>

Translated (from link in above post):
"The most superior fasting after (the fasting of) Ramadan is that of Allah's month of Al-Muharram and the most superior prayer after the obligatory (prayers) is the Night Prayer"

As a reminder, today is the 25th of al-Muharram.

It says in the footnotes on the webpage:
[2] Reported by Muslim, chapter of "Fasting", concerning the merit of observing fast in the month of Al-Muharram (hadith 2755), Abu Dawud, chapter of "Fasting", concerning fasting during the month Al-Muharram (hadith 2429), At-Tirmidhi, chapter of "Prayer", concerning what is reported about night prayer (hadith 438), An-Nassı'i, chapter of "Night prayers and the supererogatory prayers of the day", concerning the merit of night prayers (hadith 1613) and Ahmad in his "Musnad" (hadith 8329) on the authority of Abu Hurayra رضي الله عنه.

May Allah reward the Shaykh, his students and all those behind the site and preserve them.
