Islamic Knowledge Center: Hi all readers! Have you ever heard at-Tasyriq days? If you have never heard of it, then you should know that at-Tasyriq days are big days for Muslims. Maybe all this time we only know that the big days for Muslims are only Eid al-Fitr and Eid al-Adhah. We are not wrong if that’s all we know, because in general only two moments are popular. But we also have to know that at-Tasyriq days are included for Muslim holidays. That’s why I will explain it in this article.
Perhaps the general question regarding at-Tasyriq days that we will ask is, when do at-Tasyriq days exist? What month? In what year? What are the virtues of at-Tasyriq days? What should we do on those days. These are all logical questions for Muslims who want to find out more in detail about at-Tasyriq days.
Do you still remember Eid al-Adhah? Eid al-Adhah was on the 10th of the month of Dhul Hijjah. The at-Tasyriq days are on the 11th, 12th and 13th of Dhul Hijjah. So, the total number of at-Tasriq days is three days. It exists every year; every 11th, 12th and 13th of the month of Dhul Hijjah!
We can find an explanation of the virtues of at-Tasyriq days in the hadith below;
عَنِ النَّبِيِّ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ , قَالَ : يَوْمُ عَرَفَةَ , وَيَوْمُ النَّحْرِ , وَأَيَّامُ التَّشْرِيْقِ أَعْيَادٌ لِأَهْلِ الْإِسْلَامِ , وَأَيَّامُ أَكْلٍ وَشُرْبٍ . رَوَاهُ أَبُوْ دَاوُدَ وَ النَّسَائِيُّ وَ التِّرْمِذِيُّ
From the Prophet (Muhammad) sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam, he said, “Arafat Day, an-Nahr day (Yaumu an-Nahri), and at-Tasyriq days, are feast days for Muslims and days for eat and drink.” The hadith is narrated by Abu Daud, an-Nasai, and at-Tirmidhi.
All Readers! If we observe the hadith above, then surely, we know, that the status of at-Tasyriq days as one of the Muslim holidays is one of the virtues of at-Tasyriq days. In those days we must not fast. It is evident that in the hadith it is explained, that these days are days for eating and drinking. Of course, that does not apply if we have promised God to fast on those days.
But what we need to know about it all is that what is meant by days to eat and drink is not a mandatory moment for partying. All we need to do is not fast these days. That is all!
All Readers! That is a brief explanation of this article. Do you understand? If you want to ask, please ask!
I think that’s enough for this article. May be useful! Amen!
See you in the next article!
