Does Islam celebrate the Passover?

Answer 1Yes, Muslims observe Passover and fast it. They call it "Yum Ashura'a".Answer 2Muslims do believe in the events of the Passover and believe the event to be the Divine salvation of the Jewish people at that time. However, Muslims do not celebrate the Passover Seder in any way and do not have the restricted eating habits or holiday requirements that traditionally define Passover.A note on Answer 1: Yom Ashura has absolutely nothing to do with Passover, except it partially being a commemoration of the Exodus, and has no connection to Judaism (in terms of its religious character). In terms of historical origin and general activity it is much more similar to the Jewish Yom Kippur although the fast of Yom Ashura would be considered an unhappy fast whereas Yom Kippur is a happy fast.
