The most beloved and blessed Prophet (SallAllahu Alayhi wa Sallam) is reported to have said:

 

» The Fast of every day of Muharram is equivalent to the Fasts of one month. [Tabarani, Mu’jam al-Saghir, Vol. 2, Page 87,  Hadith 1580]
 
» After Ramadan, the Fast of Muharram is the most superior, and the most superior Salah after the Fard Salah is Salat al-Layl (i.e. Nawafil offered during the night). [Sahih Muslim, Page 591, Hadith 1163]
 
» Whoever fasted for three days, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, during the month of Muharram, the reward of two years’ worship will be recorded for him. [Tabarani, Mu'jam al-Awsat, Vol. 2, Page 219, Hadith 1789]
 
» Whoever fasts three days, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, during the holy months (i.e. Dhul-Qa'dah, Dhul-Hijjah and Muharram), the reward of 900 years’ worship will be recorded for him. [Ghazali, Ihya Uloom al-Deen, Vol. 1, Page 237]
 
» Whoever fasts three days, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, during the holy months (i.e. Dhul-Qa'dah, Dhul-Hijjah and Muharram), Allah will bless him with the reward of 700 years’ worship. [Bayhaqi, Fada'il al-Awqat, Vol. 1, Page 538, Hadith 289]
