The second month of the Islamic year sees the wafat of the Holy Prophet (pbuh) and Imam Ali Ar-Ridha (pbuh). It is a month in which the battle of Siffeen was fought by Imam Ali (pbuh). The ‘Arba’een of Imam Husayn (pbuh) falls in this month.
Imam Hasan Al-Askari (pbuh) has said: 5 things identify a mu’min:
i) One who prays 51 rakat of salaa in a day.
ii) One who recites Ziyara ‘Arba’een
iii) One who wears a ring on the right hand
iv) One who uses a ‘turbat’ for sajda
v) One who recites Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem loudly in salaa.
