When is the Muharram in 2015?

1 Muharram is on the 14 October, Wednesday in 2015. Also, Ashura which is the tenth day of Muharram is on the 23 October, Friday. The month of Muharram ends on the 12 December, Thursday.

Fasting in the month of Muharram

Muharram is one of the sacred months of the year. Fasting this month is highly recommended.
Abu Hurayrah narrated that the Prophet (Sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) said:
“The best fasting after the month of Ramadaan is the month of Allaah, the Muharram” [Saheeh Muslim]
Allaah's Messenger called this month the month of Allaah and as we know that when this type of idaafah is
mentioned and it is related to the name of Allaah, then it means that object has greatness, honor and deserves our
respect and veneration as is prescribed in the shariah. Like baytullah, naaqatullaah, rosuulullaah….
So, we understand the great importance of this month, however fasting in this month shouldn't be done as a whole
as we know from the sunnah that the Prophet (saw) never fasted a full whole month except the month of
Ramadaan. So, what the hadith in saheeh Muslims means is to fast a lot of days in Muharram – but not the whole
month and Allaah knows best.

Blessings of Muharram

It is the first month of the Islamic Calendar.
The meaning of the word:- The word "Muharram" means "Forbidden." Even before Islam, this month was always known as a scared month in which all unlawful acts were forbidden, prominently the shedding of blood.
A blessing of Muharram:- There are many bounties of this month, especially the tenth of Muharram.
Two of the many virtues of the 10th of Muharram:
-In this day he who spends more lavishly for the sake of his family members, Allah Taala will bestow blessing upon the sustenance of the following year.
Abu Qataada has related that the Prophet has reported to have said, It is my thought that by fasting on the 10th of Muharram Allah Taala will pardon the sins of the past year. (Tirmizi)

The Muharram month

Muharram is the month with which the Muslims begin their lunar Hijrah Calendar. It is one of the four sanctified months about which the Holy Quran says, "The number of the months according to Allah is twelve months (mentioned) in the Book of Allah on the day in which He created heavens and the earth. Among these (twelve months) there are four sanctified".
These four months, according to the authentic traditions are the months of Zulqadah, Zulhijjah, Muharram and Rajab. All the commentators of the Holy Quran are unanimous on this point, because the Holy Prophet in his sermon on the occasion of his last Hajj, has declared:
"One year consists of twelve months, of which four are sanctified months, three of them are in sequence; Zulqadah, Zulhijjah, Muharram, and the fourth is Rajab."
