According to the Quran, Muharram itself is not explicitly highlighted as being special or significant in a distinct manner. However, Muharram holds significance within the broader framework of the four sacred months mentioned in the Quran.
“Indeed, the number of months with Allah is twelve [lunar] months in the register of Allah [from] the day He created the heavens and the earth; of these, four are sacred. That is the correct religion, so do not wrong yourselves during them…”
This verse emphasizes that Allah has chosen and designated four of the twelve lunar months as sacred. These sacred months are Rajab, Dhul-Qa’dah, Dhul-Hijjah, and Muharram. The significance lies in the fact that Allah has elevated the status of these months, and Muslims are encouraged to honor and respect them.
