Reward of Fasting on the Day of Aashura

عن أبي قتادة رضي الله عنه أن رجلا سأل النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم، فقال: يا رسول الله، أرأيت رجلا يصوم يوم عاشوراء؟ قال: ذاك صوم سنة (صحيح ابن حبان رقم 3631)

Hazrat Abu Qataadah (Radhiyallahu Anhu) reports that once a Sahaabi asked Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam), “O Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam), what is the reward for a person who fasts on the day of Aashura?” Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) replied, “It carries the reward of fasting for an entire year.”

Hazrat Abdullah bin Amr bin Aas (radhiyallahu ‘anhuma) reported, “Whoever sends salutations upon Nabi (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) once, Allah Ta‘ala and His angels will send seventy mercies and blessings upon him in return of his one Durood. Hence, whoever wishes to increase his Durood should increase it, and whoever wishes to decrease his Durood should decrease it (i.e. if he wants to earn great rewards, then he should increase his Durood).”
