Is there anything forbidden during month of muharram?

is it forbidden during the entire month or only the first 10 days

Salam. During the Holy Month of Muharram and even until the 20th of Safar (Arbaeen) the Shias are in mourning for the martyrdom of Imam Hussein AS. During this time they refrain from celebrating even if something good happens. Some do not rejoice during the whole month of Safar because it also contains the sad days of when the Holy Prophet SA and Imam Hassan AS left us. Some continue the mourning until the 9th of Rabi al-Awwal (the day after the martyrdom of the 11th Imam AS). So on the 9th of Rabi al-Awwal people celebrate the Imamat of Imam Mahdi, may Allah hasten his reappearance.

If by forbidden you mean haram, then nothing is deemed haram or wajib.

There are recommendations about what one can and should do and similarly recommendations about what one should refrain from.

Fasting is haram,isn't it ?

Shias say either fasting on Ashura is haram (prohibited) or makruh (disliked or detestable). However, some Shias refuse to eat and drink (with no intention or niyyat of fasting) until afternoon. This reenactment of hunger and thirst is in remembrance of Imam Hussein AS and those with him in Karbala, and eating and drinking must be done before sunset.
