Q: I would like to know if it is a Sunaah to keep ten fast for the first ten days of Muharram?
A: No it is not a sunnah. However it is sunnah for one to fast on the 9th and 10th or 10th and 11th of Muharram. For further details refer to http://muftionline.co.za/node/12250.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
