Assalam Alaikum

Looking for the importance of fasting on 10th Muharram, I recently found these words on a website:

‘Ashura is a day of great historical significance. On this day: Allah (Subhanahu wa Ta'ala accepted the repentance of Sayyidina Adam ('Alaihis-Salaam) after his exile from Paradise; Allah (Subhanahu wa Ta'ala saved Sayyidina Nuh ('Alaihis-Salaam) and his companions in the ark; Allah extinguished the fire in which Sayyidina Ibrahim ('Alaihis-Salaam) was thrown by Nimrod; And Allah (Subhanahu wa Ta'ala spoke directly to Sayyidina Musa ('Alaihis-Salaam) and gave him the Commandments. On this same 10th of Muharram, Sayyidina Ayyub ('Alaihis-Salaam) was restored to health (from leprosy); Sayyidina Yusuf ('Alaihis-Salaam) was reunited with his father Ya’qub ('Alaihis-Salaam); Sayyidina Yunus ('Alaihis-Salaam) was taken out from the belly of the fish; and the sea was divided as the nation of israel was delivered from captivity and Pharoah’s army was destroyed. ‘Ashura is also the day when Sayyidina Dawud ('Alaihis-Salaam) was forgiven; the kingdom of Sulaiman ('Alaihis-Salaam) was restored; Sayyidina Isa ('Alaihis-Salaam) was raised to Jannah; the Holy Prophet’s (Sallallahu ‘alayhi wa Sallam) sins were forgiven; and Sayyidina al-Husayn (Radiyallahu 'anh) (the Holy Prophet’s, Sallallahu ‘alayhi wa Sallam, grandson) achieved the honor of Martyrdom.

The overwhelming number of incidence taking place on this particular day made me a bit suspicious of the authenticity of this site. I may be absolutely wrong !!

I just want your help in finding the truth.

These are false traditions and lies by extremists who think they are doing service to Sunnah by going into excess exaggerations and misinterpretations of traditions. I did a search online and found a website which has lot of such lies refuted. We might not agree with everything they say but its surely a fresh alternative and my "fasting on ashura" query was certainly quenched here as i also found all these stories which u quoted as very suspicious!

Here you may also check the information which i discovered by accident:
