Abu ‘Ammar reported: “I asked Qais b. Sa‘d about Sadaqa-tul-Fitr. He said: ‘Allah’s Messenger (Sall Allah-o-alaihe wa sallam) commanded us (to pay this sadaqa) before (the command of) zakah was revealed. Then (the command of) zakah was revealed but he did not forbid us from it; nor did he command that to us; while we paid it.’ And I (Abu Ammar) asked him about fast of the 10th (of Muharram). He said: “Allah’s Messenger (Sall Allah-o-alaihe wa sallam) commanded us (to observe it) before (the fasts of) Ramadan were prescribed.’ Then the (fasts of) Ramadan were revealed. He did not command (to observe) that (fast) nor did he forbid us from that while we did observe that (Saum-i-‘Ashura).
