Brief digest of the laws of Tisha B'av:
The five main prohibitions of Tisha B'Av include
1. No eating or drinking
2. No wearing leather shoes
3. No washing / showering
4. No smearing oils on the body
5. No intercourse

Other actions are prohibited on Tisha B'Av because of mourning, such as: a prohibition of learning Torah, doing work, greeting people, sitting on a chair (until Sunday noon) and more.

The tractate of Ta'anit mentions that there were five cataclysmic incidents that occurred on this day: A. It was decreed upon the generation of the desert that they would not come to the Land of Israel because of the sin of the spies. B. The destruction of the First Temple. C. The destruction of the Second Temple. D. The city of Beitar was conquered by the Romans — an event that signified the failure of the Bar Kochba revolt. E. The Romans plowed over Jerusalem.

According to tradition, after the Messiah comes and the Third Temple will be built, Tisha B'Av, like the other fasts over the destruction, will become a day of celebration and joy. The Jerusalem Talmud states that the Messiah will be born on Tisha B'Av.
