People who are not performing Hajj are supposed to fast on the “Day of `Arafah”.
What are the etiquettes of standing on Mount `Arafah and what are the best du`a’ to be said on the day of `Arafah?
Tomorrow is the Day of Arafah, one of the greatest days in the whole year. It is marked by the pilgrims’ observing the Staying at Arafah ritual, which is an essential component of Hajj, without which Hajj does not count. In this folder, we collected fatwas related to this blessed Day and its rituals.
Could you please explain the excellence of the Day of `Arafah?
Can you, please, mention the days of fasting in Dhul-Hijjah? What is the evidence?
Since these are the best days of the entire year for a Muslim, both pilgrims and those who are not performing hajj, seemingly ‘idle’ moments during them can also be spent in doing a very easy act of worship – dhikr…
Many non-Muslims or new Muslims may ask this all important question, what is the day of Arafah? In the Islamic faith it is the best day in the world!
When I was blessed to go to Hajj around twenty-five years ago, the days we spent in Makkah and Madinah were truly amazing, but the Day of Arafah was something else. The crowds were everywhere and the scene truly reminded me of the Day of Judgment, especially with the heat of the month of June.
Allah said that the best day of the year was the Day of Arafah, this is the 9th day of Dhul-Hijjah!
If we are not going to Hajj, one way to get our sins forgiven for the previous year and the next is fasting the day of Arafah! Important reminder.
