Spending in Muharram

Q: The Hadith encourages spending on one's family on 10th of Muharram. Is this restricted to merely serving extra food at home, or can it refer to spending additionally on one’s dependents in other things as well?

A: The Hadith is general in that in mentions providing something extra or being more generous. Generally, this would apply to providing some extra food for the house. However, it could also refer to providing other items that may be needed. However, there is no concept of exchanging Ashura gifts in Islam.
