Days after Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) had left his home in Makkah and migrated to Yathreb, the town which later became known as Al-Madina Al-Munawarah (Enlightened City), he was settling in when he saw a group of Jews fasting on a day known as Ashoura. They were thanking God for Prophet Moses’ escape from the Pharaoh. The Prophet thereafter mandated that Muslims fast on that day out of respect to Prophet Moses (PBUH). It was the first year of the Hijrah, and it was the first obligatory fasting for Muslims.
