Significance of Aashura ~ 10th Muharram

And We had already tried before them the people of Pharaoh, and there came to them a noble messenger, [Saying], “Render to me the servants of Allah . Indeed, I am to you a trustworthy messenger,” And [saying], “Be not haughty with Allah . Indeed, I have come to you with clear authority. And indeed, I have sought refuge in my Lord and your Lord, lest you stone me. But if you do not believe me, then leave me alone.” And [finally] he called to his Lord that these were a criminal people. [ Allah said], “Then set out with My servants by night. Indeed, you are to be pursued. And leave the sea in stillness. Indeed, they are an army to be drowned.” How much they left behind of gardens and springs And crops and noble sites And comfort wherein they were amused. Thus. And We caused to inherit it another people. And the heaven and earth wept not for them, nor were they reprieved. (Holy Qur’aan ~ Surah Dukhaan ~ Ayat 17_29)
