Pearl of Wisdom

'When Ibrahim [the Prophet's son] passed away, the Prophet (SAWA) cried such that tears rolled onto his beard, so people said to him, ?O Prophet of Allah, you dissuade people from crying and here you are now crying?!' to which he replied, 'This is not crying, it is compassion, for he who does not have compassion [for others] will not be treated with compassion [by Allah].'

Question: Salamu alaykum,

In regards to Ashura, is it prohibited to purchase anything new? If so, what do we define as "new" (i.e. necessary vs. luxury). Also, can you please point out the source/reference to where this issue can be supported. Much thanks.
Answer: It is Makruh or undesirable, and the 'purchased' item shall not be blessed on that day.

New may refer to a good or service that was purchased.
