Ashura' - عَاشُورَاء

محرم أولُ الشهورِ القمريةِ وفيهِ أيامٌ مباركةٌ ولا سيما يوم عاشوراء، يوم العاشرِ من المحرم. وقد جعلَ اللهُ صومَ يومِ العاشرِ من محرم سُنةً ليسَ بواجبٍ، وإنما لم يجب صومُه لخبرِ الصحيحينِ: "إنّ هذا اليومَ يوم عاشوراء ولم يُكتبِ اللهُ عليكم صيامَه، فمن شاءَ فليصُمْهُ ومن شاءَ فليُفطِر".

The Messenger of Allah said:

"One Dirham surpassed one hundred thousand Dirhams." They said: "How?" He said: "A man had two Dirhams; he gave one of them in charity; and another man went to part of his money and took out of it one hundred thousand Dirhams and gave them in charity."

The man who does not have but two Dirhams and gave one of them for the sake of Allah, favoring the reward of Allah has more reward than the wealthy who gave in charity one hundred thousand, which is little compared to the plenty of money he had.

If it were not for the strong certitude of the first, he would not give half of his money. Had it not been for his strong trust in Allah, his belief in the Hereafter and the reward from Allah, and the occupation of his heart with the Hereafter, the reward of this single Dirham would have not surpassed the reward of one hundred thousand Dirhams, which the wealthy paid in charity out of his own (abundant) money.

قال رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم: ‏

"‏سَبَقَ دِرْهَمٌ مِائَةَ أَلْفِ دِرْهَمٍ.‏"‏ ‏قَالُوا وَكَيْفَ؟ قَالَ: ‏"‏كَانَ لِرَجُلٍ دِرْهَمَانِ تَصَدَّقَ بِأَحَدِهِمَا، وَانْطَلَقَ رَجُلٌ إِلَى عُرْضِ مَالِهِ فَأَخَذَ مِنْهُ مِائَةَ أَلْفِ دِرْهَمٍ فَتَصَدَّقَ بِهَا ‏"‏ ‏.‏

الرَّجُلُ الذي لا يملِكُ إلَّا دِرْهَمَيْنِ وتَصَدَّقَ بأحَدِهِمَا ابتغاءَ وَجْهِ الله إيثارًا للآخرةِ أيْ إيثارًا لما عند الله يكونُ ثوابهُ عند الله أعظمَ من ثوابِ هذا الغنيِّ الذي يَتَصَدَّقُ بمِائَةِ ألفٍ والمِائَةُ ألفٍ عندَه قليلٌ من كثير .

ذاكَ الذي تَصَدَّقَ بدرهمٍ وأبقَى لنفسهِ درهمًا لولا قُوَّةُ يقينهِ ما تَصَدَّقَ بنصفِ ما يملِك، لولا قُوَّةُ يقينهِ بالله واليومِ الآخرِ والثَّواب من الله تعالى وإقبالُ قلبهِ على الآخرةِ ما زادَ أجرُ هذا الدِّرْهَمِ الواحدِ على أجرِ مِائَةِ ألفِ دِرْهَمٍ يَتَصَدَّقُ بها الرَّجُلُ الموسرُ الغنيُّ من عُرْضِ ماله .
