Tomorrow is the 10th Muharram; What Is 10 Muharram? Why Is It a Great thought to Fast


Tomorrow is the 10th Muharram;  What Is 10 Muharram?
You may have heard 10 Muharram because there is not school, but you may not know what it really is.  Now, I will explain what 10 Muharram is.  You have heard the prophet Moses” Peace and mercy Allah be upon him”. Also, you know who the Pharaoh of Egypt was. As it is known, Moses had endeavored to make The Pharaoh to follow Islamic path, but we know he rejected it.  The Pharaoh said that he was a real god.  He coerced people to worship him.  The Prophet Moses did his best to convert him to Islamic religion, but because the Pharaoh was arrogant and selfish, he ignored the right path, which is Islam. Thankfully, God- Almighty rescued the Prophet.  How so?  God gave command to the prophet and his followers to leave Egypt, and they left Egypt.  When the Pharaoh of Egypt knew that the prophet and his followers run away from the country, the Pharaoh and his servants followed them. After that, the prophet and his friends knew they were followed by the pharaoh.  The prophet and his followers reached the Nile River; then they didn’t know what to do.  After awhile, The pharaoh and his brutal army were near to the prophet and his followers. The prophet invoked help of the God, and God answered his him and rescued the prophet and his followers. “God always supports the real Muslims.” “He will save you whenever you need His help if you worship Him honestly and rightfully.”  Then, Moses had a stick in his hand; he was told to hit the River by his stick.  When the Moses hit the water by his stick, the Nile River was divided to two parts, and then the prophet and his followers went to the other side of the River through very easily.  Then, the pharaoh and his servants went through the River.  Fortunately, while the Pharaoh and his servants were in the separated water, the prophet Moses was told to hit the water again, and he hit it; then the two parts of Nile River joined again while pharaoh and his army were inside the water.  Therefore, they were sunk.  All of them died in the Nile River.  This is how the Prophet Moses and his followers were rescued by God Almighty.  The day when the pharaoh and his servants were sunk is called 10 Muharram.  And, Tomorrow, is the 10th Muharram, which means the anniversary of the day when prophet Moses and his followers were rescued from the brutal.        
Dears, Don't be confused with what other are saying; Tomorrow is really the 10th Muharram.  if you fast tomorrow, you will be forgiven for what you have done in the one recent year, God willing, except the huge sins like Shirk- believing in more than one God.
