The best level of fasting for Ashura

بســـم اللــه الرحــمــن الـرحـــيــم

Answered by Shaykh Abu Hamza Hassan bin Muhammed Ba Shu’ayb – may Allah preserve him –


What is the best way and order in fasting the day of Ashura?


The best way is to fast the 10th with the 9th, and this is in accordance to the guidance of the Prophet ﷺ.

Then it’s to fast the 10th with the 11th, doing so to oppose the Jews in their singling out of the 10th.

Then the 10th by itself, while missing out on opposing the Jews.

And knowledge is with Allah the Most High.
