Fasting On Ashurah 1436 AH/2014

Question: Can I keep fast on 9.10,11 of Muharram? Is it Saturday, Sunday and Monday in Trinidad?

Answer: Assalamu Alaikum,

The 10th of Muharram in Trinidad will be on Tuesday 4th November 2014. Based on the guidelines of the Prophet (s.a.w), one may either fast on the 9th and 10th of Muharram or the 10th and 11th of Muharram. Hence, you may observe the fast on Monday 3rd November and Tuesday 4th November (which will be the 9th and 10th of Muharram) or Tuesday 4th November and Wednesday 5th November (which will be the 10th and 11th of Muharram).

And Allah Knows Best.
