The Day of Arafah is 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.
Day of Arafah for all
Non-pilgrims have their share of the day’s blessings as well. They are recommended to fast on it. According to an authentic hadith, fasting the day of Arafah erases the sins of the past year and the next on.
The day is an important occasion for extra devotion, duaa, remembrance of Allah and prayers.
