Question 5: Why are some of the lunar months called "haram" months? Why is the blood money (diyah) doubled in this month?
Answer 5: In pre-Islamic days many tribes banned war in Mecca as a place where conflict was “haram” (forbidden) and four months of the year were also set aside as haram months when all conflict and battles between them were suspended. Prophet Mohammad (pbuh) continued these conventions and sanctified them. Diyah increases in this month to 1/3 because these months are considered as noble by Islam also.
