Around the month of Muharram.
 Bismihi Ta`ala
 
*Around the month of Muharram:*
*The beloved prophet Swalallahou `Alaihi Wasallam said: Zul Qa`dah, Zul Hijjah, Muharram and Rajab are four sacred months.(Bukhari) Ulamas defined sacreness of these four months whereby we should take more precaution not to offend any muslim.(Shami) Muharram is the month of Allah Ta`ala.(Muslim) Its fast is best after the fasts of Ramadhaan.(Muslim)*

عن ابن أبي بكرة عن أبي بكرة
عن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم قال الزمان قد استدار كهيئته يوم خلق الله السموات والأرض السنة اثنا عشر شهرا منها أربعة حرم ثلاث متواليات ذو القعدة وذو الحجة والمحرم ورجب
بخاري
عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ رَضِيَ اللَّهُ عَنْهُ قَالَ
قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ أَفْضَلُ الصِّيَامِ بَعْدَ رَمَضَانَ شَهْرُ اللَّهِ الْمُحَرَّمُ وَأَفْضَلُ الصَّلَاةِ بَعْدَ الْفَرِيضَةِ صَلَاةُ اللَّيْلِ
مسلم
 
*Rasouloullah Swalallahou `Alaihi Wasallam said: Had you wish to fast a whole month besides Ramadhaan, then fast the whole of Muharram.(Tirmizi) During the month of Muharram, there a day (Ashoura) when Allah Ta`ala has pardoned some people in the past and He accepted the repented of some other people.(Tirmizi)*

عَنْ عَبْدِ الرَّحْمَنِ بْنِ إِسْحَقَ عَنْ النُّعْمَانِ بْنِ سَعْدٍ عَنْ عَلِيٍّ قَالَ
سَأَلَهُ رَجُلٌ فَقَالَ أَيُّ شَهْرٍ تَأْمُرُنِي أَنْ أَصُومَ بَعْدَ شَهْرِ رَمَضَانَ قَالَ لَهُ مَا سَمِعْتُ أَحَدًا يَسْأَلُ عَنْ هَذَا إِلَّا رَجُلًا سَمِعْتُهُ يَسْأَلُ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ وَأَنَا قَاعِدٌ عِنْدَهُ فَقَالَ يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ أَيُّ شَهْرٍ تَأْمُرُنِي أَنْ أَصُومَ بَعْدَ شَهْرِ رَمَضَانَ قَالَ إِنْ كُنْتَ صَائِمًا بَعْدَ شَهْرِ رَمَضَانَ فَصُمْ الْمُحَرَّمَ فَإِنَّهُ شَهْرُ اللَّهِ فِيهِ يَوْمٌ تَابَ فِيهِ عَلَى قَوْمٍ وَيَتُوبُ فِيهِ عَلَى قَوْمٍ آخَرِينَ
قَالَ أَبُو عِيسَى هَذَا حَدِيثٌ حَسَنٌ غَرِيبٌ
ترمذي
 
*On the 10th of Muharram, Allah Ta`ala saved Moussa a.s. and Bani Isra-eel and drowned Pharaoh(Ibn Majah). Some other riwayats make mention of other prophets achievements on that day. That is why we fast in gratitude on the victory of Haqq over Baatil on that day.*

عَنْ ابْنِ عَبَّاسٍ قَالَ
قَدِمَ النَّبِيُّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ الْمَدِينَةَ فَوَجَدَ الْيَهُودَ صُيَّامًا فَقَالَ مَا هَذَا قَالُوا هَذَا يَوْمٌ أَنْجَى اللَّهُ فِيهِ مُوسَى وَأَغْرَقَ فِيهِ فِرْعَوْنَ فَصَامَهُ مُوسَى شُكْرًا فَقَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ نَحْنُ أَحَقُّ بِمُوسَى مِنْكُمْ فَصَامَهُ وَأَمَرَ بِصِيَامِهِ
ابن ماجة
 
*The tragic destiny of the martyrdom of the grandson of the beloved prophet Swalallahou `Alaihi Wasallam happened historically on 10th of Muharram. But before that the greatest tragedy was to lose the beloved prophet Muhammad Swalallahou `Alaihi Wasallam during the month of Rabi`ul Awal. Only the demise of Rasouloullah Swalallahou `Alaihi Wasallam, Sahabahs could only cry silently, nothing more. On the revelation of the martyrdom of Hussein r.a., the beloved prophet Swalallahou `Alaihi Wasallam cried silently.(Ahmad; Tabrani ) So both were prophecised by the prophet Swalallahou `Alaihi Wasallam. But for none of them had we been called to lament or mourn. So it is unislamic to mourn, talk on Karbala or raise sensibilities on the issue of the martyrdom of Hussein r.a. during the days of Muharram.*

حَدَّثَنَا وَكِيعٌ، قَالَ: حَدَّثَنِي عَبْدُ اللهِ بْنُ سَعِيدٍ، عَنْ أَبِيهِ  ، عَنْ عَائِشَةَ، أَوْ أُمِّ سَلَمَةَ قَالَ وَكِيعٌ، شَكَّ هُوَ يَعْنِي عَبْدَ اللهِ بْنَ سَعِيدٍ أَنَّ النَّبِيَّ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ قَالَ لِإِحْدَاهُمَا  : " لَقَدْ دَخَلَ عَلَيَّ الْبَيْتَ

مَلَكٌ لَمْ يَدْخُلْ عَلَيَّ قَبْلَهَا، فَقَالَ لِي: إِنَّ ابْنَكَ هَذَا حُسَيْنٌ مَقْتُولٌ، وَإِنْ شِئْتَ أَرَيْتُكَ مِنْ تُرْبَةِ الْأَرْضِ الَّتِي يُقْتَلُ بِهَا " قَالَ: " فَأَخْرَجَ تُرْبَةً حَمْرَاءَ "
احمد
وعن أم سلمة قالت كان رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم جالساً ذات يوم في بيتي قال لا يدخل على أحد فانتظرت فدخل الحسين فسمعت نشيج رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم يبكي فاطلعت فاذا حسين في حجره والنبي صلى الله عليه وسلم يمسح جبينه وهو يبكي فقلت والله ما علمت حين دخل فقال ان جبريل عليه السلام كان معنا في البيت قال أفتحبه قلت أما في الدنيا فنعم قال ان أمتك ستقتل هذا بأرض يقال لها كربلاء فتناول جبريل من تربتها فأراها النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم فلما أحيط بحسين حين قتل قال ما اسم هذه الأرض قالوا كربلاء فقال صدق الله ورسوله كرب وبلاء، وفي رواية صدق رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم أرض كرب وبلاء. رواه الطبراني باسانيد ورجال أحدهما ثقات
 
*Another point is that Yazeed did not kill Hazrat Hussein r.a. Rather, it is a group of deceitful people in Iraq. Reported in Bukhari that Hazrat Ibn Umar r.a. reprimanded a haji from Iraq for holding the accusation bloodbath of Hussein r.a. So some people of Iraq that assassinated hazrat Hussein r.a.. Not Yazeed.*

 عن محمد بن أبي يعقوب سمعت ابن أبي نعم سمعت عبد الله بن عمر
وسأله عن المحرم قال شعبة أحسبه يقتل الذباب فقال أهل العراق يسألون عن الذباب وقد قتلوا ابن ابنة رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم وقال النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم هما ريحانتاي من الدنيا
بخاري
 
*In any case, the criminals of hazrat Hussein r.a. will be judged on the day of Qiyamah. So no need to darken such bright and sacred days of Muharram. One can do nikah and there is no bad omen about this month. Rather it is a month of victory for muslims. And that is why we fast during that month, and a special gratitude fasting on the 10th day(Ashoura).*
 
We will send on Ashoura soon insha Allah.
