Why is the 10th of Muharram called the Day of ‘Ashura’?

Q 1: why is the 10th of Muharram called the Day of ‘Ashura’?

A: Because it is the tenth day [‘Ashura’ means tenth in Arabic. ed.], just as the ninth day is called Tasu‘a’.

May Allah grant us success! May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet, his family, and Companions!
