What are the virtues of fasting the Day of Arafah? This day in Islam is so virtuous. This day has a lot of merits in Islam whether you are a hajji or not.
A Companion asked “what do you say about fasting on the day of Arafah? The Prophet (PBUH) said: “it expiates your sins from the past year and the coming year.” So those of us not going to Hajj can get a huge reward from just fasting one day, the Day of Arafah!
May Allah accept our fasts on this holy day!
