Virtue of fasting the first ten days of Muharram

Question:

 
Are there any Hadeeths about the virtue of fasting the first ten days of Muharram? May Allah reward you.

Answer:
All perfect praise be to Allah, the Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allah, and that Muhammad  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) is His Slave and Messenger.
 
It was narrated on the authority of Abu Hurayrah, may Allah be pleased with him, that the Prophet  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) said: "The best fasting after Ramadan is the month of Muharram." [Muslim, An-Nasaa’i, Abu Daawood and others] An-Nawawi  may  Allaah  have  mercy  upon  him said that this Hadeeth is a direct indication that Muharram is the best month for fasting (after Ramadan).
The best days of the month of Muharram are the first ten days. Al-Mardaawi  may  Allaah  have  mercy  upon  him said, "The best days of Muharram are the tenth then the ninth then the rest of the first ten days of it.”
Ibn Rajab  may  Allaah  have  mercy  upon  him said, "The best days of Muharram are the first ten days." He  may  Allaah  have  mercy  upon  him quoted Abu ‘Uthmaan An-Nahdi as saying, "They (the pious predecessors) would glorify three tens: the last ten days of Ramadan, the first ten days of Thul-Hijjah and the first ten days of Muharram."
However, there is not any authentic Hadeeth regarding the virtue of fasting the first ten days of Muharram altogether.
Allah Knows best.
