7 Important Events in the Month of Muharram, Reminding Muslims of the Values of Perseverance and Sacrifice

"Dream - Muharram not only marks the beginning of the Islamic new year, but also reminds the community of the struggle, sacrifice, and justice. As we journey through the month of Muharram, we are invited to reflect on the universal values taught by Islam, such as justice, courage, and resilience, and how we can apply them in our daily lives."

7 Important Events in the Month of Muharram, Reminding Muslims of the Values of Resilience and Sacrifice

"Muharram is a time to remember the past, strengthen faith, and commit to becoming a better person in the new year. One of the most remembered events is the tragedy of Karbala on the 10th of Muharram, where the grandson of Prophet Muhammad, Imam Husain bin Ali, along with his family and followers, became martyrs in the struggle against tyranny and oppression. This event is not only remembered as a heartbreaking human tragedy, but also as a symbol of courage and steadfastness in upholding the truth. Here are some events in the month of Muharram along with their important and historical dates for the Muslim community."

               

1. Allah SWT Accepts the Repentance of Prophet Adam AS

The month of Muharram is a sacred month, during which Allah accepted the repentance of Prophet Adam AS. As known, Prophet Adam had sinned by disobeying Allah's prohibition to not eat from the tree of khuldi. Because of this disobedience, Prophet Adam was eventually expelled from Paradise and had to descend to Earth.

The event is recorded in the Quran, Surah Al-Baqarah verse 37, as a lesson for the Muslim community. فَتَلَقَّىٰ آدَمُ مِن رَّبِّهِ كَلِمَاتٍ فَتَابَ عَلَيْهِ ۚ إِنَّهُ هُوَ التَّوَّابُ الرَّحِيمُ. Translation: "Then Adam received words from his Lord, and He turned to him. Indeed, He is the Accepting of repentance, the Merciful." (Quran, Al-Baqarah: 37).

2. The Blessing of Prophet Noah AS from the Great Flood

In his book, Imam Ibn Kathir explains that on the 10th of Muharram, Allah SWT saved Prophet Nuh from a great flood disaster. "Prophet Nuh and his followers boarded the ark on the 10th of Rajab, they sailed for 150 days, then they anchored at Mount Judi for 1 month, and they finally exited the ark on the 10th of Muharram," writes Ibn Kathir in his book.

               

3. Prophet Ibrahim AS Saved from the Burning of King Namrud

One of the important events that occurred in the month of Muharram is the salvation of Prophet Ibrahim from the burning punishment of King Namrud. With the permission of Allah, the fire lit by King Namrud did not feel hot to Prophet Ibrahim AS, instead the fire felt cold and soothing. This historical event is recorded in the Quran, in Surah Al-Anbiya' verses 68-70.

               

4. The Migration of Prophet Muhammad SAW

One of the most important events that occurred in the month of Muharram is the Hijrah of Prophet Muhammad SAW from Makkah to Madinah. This event took place in the year 622 AD and marked the beginning of the Hijri calendar. The Hijrah was not only a physical move but also a strategic step in spreading Islam and building a strong Muslim community in Madinah. There, Prophet Muhammad SAW succeeded in creating a just and prosperous society, becoming an example for Muslims throughout history.

5. Event of the Liberation of Baitul Maqdis

During the reign of Caliph Umar bin Khattab, specifically in the month of Muharram in the 16th year of the Hijri calendar, an important event occurred, namely the liberation of Baitul Maqdis (Jerusalem) from Byzantine rule. This liberation was achieved peacefully, and Umar bin Khattab demonstrated extraordinary tolerance and justice by ensuring the safety of the local population and safeguarding the holy places of the Christian community.

6. Khaibar War

One of the important military events during the time of the Prophet Muhammad SAW that occurred in the month of Muharram is the Battle of Khaibar. Although this war lasted for several months, the initial stages and some important battles took place in the month of Muharram. This war successfully conquered the Jewish fortresses in Khaibar, which had been a threat to the Muslim community. This victory solidified the power of Islam in that region and strengthened the political and economic position of the Muslims.

               

7. The Forgiveness of Prophet Muhammad PBUH's Mistakes.

The other important event is the forgiveness of past and future mistakes by Prophet Muhammad SAW. That is why during the month of Muharram, the Prophet SAW always asked his followers to continue doing good deeds, such as charity, fasting, and increasing righteous acts.

The month of Muharram contains many important events that have had a significant impact on the history of Islam. From the migration of Prophet Muhammad SAW, the fasting of Ashura, the liberation of Baitul Maqdis, to the tragedy of Karbala and the Battle of Khaibar, each event carries deep lessons and meanings for the Muslim community. Through reflection and commemoration of these events, Muslims are reminded of the values of justice, perseverance, sacrifice, and the importance of maintaining faith and piety in facing the challenges of the times.
