The Day of Arafat and DhulHijjah

Assalamu alaikum brothers and sisters, and I pray that all are well, in shaa Allah

Alhamdulillah, it is the Day of Arafat today. And tomorrow Eid Al Adha, in shaa Allah

Nabi (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) mentions in the hadith on the authority of ibn Abaas (may Allah be pleased with him) that, ‘There is no days greater in the sight of Allah and there are no days in which actions are beloved to Allah than 10 days of Dhul Hijjah. Hence, increase in it Tasbeeh (recitation of Subhaanallah), Tahmeed (recitation of Alhamdulillah), Tahleel (recitation of Laa ilaaha illallaah) and Takbeer (recitation of Allaahu Akbar). (Mutajirur raabih pg.418)

In another Hadith, Hadhrat Abu Hurayra narrates Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) as saying, ‘There are no days more beloved to Allah in which he is worshipped than the 10 days of Dhul Hijja – the fast of each day is equivalent to the fast of a year and standing up in worship of the night of Laylatul Qadr. (Ibid)

The day of Arafaat should be spent in condition of fasting and involved in the Dhikr of Allah Ta’ala. Nabi (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) said, ‘Fasting on the day of Arafaat is a means of wiping off the previous years as well the coming year’s sins.’ Also Nabi (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) said, ‘Fasting on the day of Arafaat is equal to fast of 1000 days.’

Remember to say much supplications today in shaa Allah.

Here’s some supplications to say:
Glory be to Allah

All praises be to Allah

Allahu Akbar
Allah is the Greatest

La illaha illAllāhu wa dāhu la shareeka lāhu wa huwa ala kulli shay’in qadīr
There is none worthy of worship but Allah alone and He is Able to do all things

La illaha illAllāh
There is no God but Allah alone

Astaghfirullah wa atubuh ilaih
I seek the forgiveness of Allah and repent to Him

Takbir (to be recited during the 1st ten days of DhulHijjah after every salah and throughout the day, continuing up to the 13th DhulHijjah, after Eid): “Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar, La ilaha illAllah, Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar, Wa Lillahi hamd”

It consists of: Takbir (Allahu Akbar); Tahlil (La ilaha illAllah); Tasbih (SubhaanAllah) and Tahmid (Alhamdulillah).

May Allah accept our fast from us and every righteous deed and may He help us to reach Eid :palms_up_together:t3:
