Muharram is the first month of the Hijri calendar and is one of the four blessed and sacred months.

Allah says (interpretation of the meaning):

"Verily, the number of months with Allah is twelve months (in a year), so it was ordained by Allah on the Day when He created the heavens and the earth; of them, four are sacred. That is the right religion, so wrong not yourselves therein … " (Qur'an 9:36)

Abu Bakar pbu reported that the Prophet Mohammad saws said:

"The year is twelve months of which four are sacred, the three consecutive months of Dhul-Qa'dah, Dhul-Hijjah and Muharram, and Rajab Mudar which comes between Jumadah and Sha'ban." (Reported by al-Bukhari, 2958)

It is mustahabb to fast on the day of Ashura, (being the tenth day of Muharram) and also on the day of Tasu'a' (which is the ninth day) as our beloved Prophet Mohammad saws did.

The day of 'Ashura' is not a festival like 'Eid’, and it is not a day of mourning as some have taken it to be. Both are wrong, and both go against the Sunnah.

Neither the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) nor his followers did any of these things on the day of 'Ashura'. They neither made it a day of mourning nor a day of celebration.

As for the other things, such as cooking special dishes with or without grains, or wearing new clothes, or spending money on one's family, or buying the year's supplies on that day, or doing special acts of worship such as special prayers or deliberately slaughtering an animal on that day, or saving some of the meat of the sacrifice to cook with grains, or wearing kohl and henna, or taking a bath (ghusl), or shaking hands with one another, or visiting one another and so on … all of this is reprehensible bid'ah and is wrong. None of it has anything to do with the Sunnah of the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him). Salaam

Salam, Holy Muharram is first Islamic month, it is basically known as month of grief as on the tenth of this month but associating several Biddah with this month is not justifying and as a Muslim we should avoid such actions that add in such account.
