The 9th of Dhul Hijjah – Tuesday, June 27th, 2023 – is the Day of Arafah.

No deeds are better or more beloved to Allah (swt) than the deeds on the day of Arafah.

– Fast

The hadith of the Prophet (PBUH) teaches us:
“Fasting on the Day of Arafah expiates the sins of the past year and the coming year.” ~ Muslim

– Recite the Dua’a of Arafah

The hadith of the Prophet (PBUH) teaches us:
“The most excellent Dua’a is the Dua’a on the Day of Arafah, and the best of what I and the prophets before me have said, is “There is nothing that deserves to be worshiped in truth except Allah, He is Alone and has no partner, to Him belongs the dominion and to Him belongs all praise, and He is All-Powerful over all things.'” ~ Muwatta

لا إلَه إلَّا اللهُ وحدَه لا شَريكَ له، له المُلكُ وله الحمدُ، وهو على كلِّ شيءٍ قديرٌ

Spend the day in worship, and don’t miss the opportunity of forgiveness as a reward for your fasting!

The Day of Arafah

The Day of Arafah is significant in Islam and is observed on the 9th day of the month of Dhu al-Hijjah in the Islamic calendar. It is the day that Muslims worldwide observe the annual pilgrimage to Mecca, known as the Hajj.

The Day of Arafah is an important day of spiritual reflection and devotion for Muslims. It is the day when Muslims stand on the plain of Arafah, a location just outside of Mecca, and perform a series of rituals to seek forgiveness from God and express their devotion to Him. These rituals include standing in silence, supplicating to God, and performing the devil ritual’s stoning.

The Day of Arafah is also a time of forgiveness and reconciliation, and Muslims seek forgiveness from one another and make amends with those with whom they have conflicts.

In addition to its spiritual significance, the Day of Arafah is also important for the global Muslim community. It marks the culmination of the annual Hajj pilgrimage. Millions of Muslims from around the world come together on this day to perform the rituals of the Hajj, creating a sense of unity and solidarity among believers.
