Q: O respected Sheikh! Would you please tell me the meaning of Allah’s saying: But whosoever hastens to leave in two days, there is no sin on him and whosoever stays on, there is no sin on him?

A: This Glorious Ayah (Qur’anic verse) relates to the Days of Tashriq (11th, 12th and 13th of Dhul-Hijjah), Al-Nafr Al-Awwal (leaving Mina after throwing the stones in the 12th of Dhul-Hijjah), and Al-Nafr Al-Thani (leaving Mina after stoning on the 13th of Dhul-Hijjah). Allah (Glorified be He) says: And remember Allâh during the appointed Days. i.e. the Days of Tashriq which does not include the Day of `Eid-ul-Adha (the Festival of the Sacrifice). And remember Allâh during the appointed Days. The Day of `Eid-ul-Adha is the tenth day of Dhul-Hijjah. Muslims are commanded to pronounce Dhikr (Remembrance of Allah) during the first ten days of Dhul-Hijjah and the appointed Days of Tashriq. Dhikr is thus ordained during all the thirteen days; starting from the 1st day of Dhul-Hijjah to the 13th day. They are all days of Dhikr, Takbir (saying: “Allahu Akbar [Allah is the Greatest]”), and Tahlil (saying: “La ilaha illa Allah [There is no god except Allah]”). It is ordained that Muslims pronounce Takbir and Tahlil during these thirteen days at all times and wherever they may be. Allah (Exalted be He) says: And remember Allâh during the appointed Days. But whosoever hastens to leave in two days i.e. there is no sin on whosoever leaves on the 12th of Dhul-Hijjah, …and whosoever stays on i.e. for the 13th of Dhul-Hijjah …there is no sin on him, if his aim is to do good and obey Allâh (fear Him), and know that you will surely be gathered unto Him. Allah (Glorified be He) reminds pilgrims that as they gather in `Arafat, Muzdalifah, and Mina; He (Exalted be He) will assemble them all in the Day of Resurrection in a large gathering as He (Exalted be He) says: (And remember) the Day when He will gather you (all) on the Day of Gathering, — that will be the Day of mutual loss and gain (i.e. loss for the disbelievers as they will enter the Hell-fire and gain for the believers as they will enter Paradise). All people will be gathered on the Day of Resurrection and reckoned for their deeds.

If their deeds are good, they will be rewarded and vice versa. The large gathering at Mina, `Arafat, and Muzdalifah reminds reflective people of the Day of Resurrection so that they may prepare for this great Day. However, some pilgrims may be in need to hasten and leave Mina on the 12th of Dhul-Hijjah and some may not. Whoever hastens and leaves Mina on the 12th of Dhul-Hijjah after throwing the stones after Zawal (midday), there is no blame on them. Whoever leaves Mina on the 13th of Dhul-Hijjah after throwing the stones after Zawal (midday), there is no blame on them and it is best as this was done by the Prophet (peace be upon him). Thus it is optional either to leave Mina on the 12th or the 13th of Dhul-Hijjah. Pilgrims then proceed to Makkah where they are to perform Tawaf-ul-Wada` (circumambulation of the Ka`bah on leaving Makkah) if they are leaving or they may stay in Makkah for some days.

A pilgrim must perform Tawaf-ul-Wada` whenever they intend to depart. It should be clear that the Day of `Eid-ul-Adha is not one of the Days of Tashriq as some people wrongly think; they leave Mina on the 11th of Dhul-Hijjah and say that this is the second Day of Tashriq. This is a big mistake for the Prophet (peace be upon him) said: Days of Mina are three. Whosoever hastens to leave in two days, there is no sin on them and whosoever stays on, there is no sin on them. i.e. the 11th, the 12th, and the 13th Days of Dhul-Hijjah.

Increase in making Dua, best of dua is the dua of ‘Arafah:

 

خَيرُ الدُّعَاءِ : دُعَاءُ يَومِ عَرَفَةَ

“The best du’aa is the du’aa on the Day of ‘Arafah”
[At-Tirmidhee (#3585): Declared Hasan by Shaykh al-Albaanee. See As-Saheehah (#1503)]

Abu Musa al-Ashari (radhiAllaahu ‘anhu) said:

“The Du’aa is not rejected during these days of Dhul-Hijjah.” (Lataaif p. 377)

As for the Best Dua to say on the Day of Arafah:

The Messenger of Allaah (Sallallaahu ‘alayhi wasallam) said:

« خَيرُ الدُّعَاءِ : دُعَاءُ يَومِ عَرَفَةَ ، وَ خَيرُ مَا قُلْتُ أَنَا وَ النَّبِيُّونَ مِنْ قَبْلِي : لاَ إِلَهَ إِلاَّ اللهُ ، وَحْدَهُ لاَ شَرِيكَ لَهُ ، لَهُ المُلكُ ، وَ لَهُ الحَمدُ ، وَ هُوَ عَلَى كُلِّ شَيءٍ قَدِيرٌ »

“The best du’aa is the du’aa on the Day of ‘Arafah, and the best thing that I and the Prophets before me said is: ‘Laa ilaaha illallaah, wahdahu laa shareeka lah, lahul-Mulku wa lahul-hamd, wa huwa ‘alaa kulli shayin qadeer’.”

(There is nothing that deserves to be worshiped in truth except Allaah, 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)
[At-Tirmidhee (#3585): Declared Hasan by Shaykh al-Albaanee. See As-Saheehah (#1503)

As for the Day of Arafaah:

The Prophet (Sallallaahu ‘alayhi wasallam) said: “There is no day on which Allaah frees more people from the Fire than the Day of ‘Arafaah. He comes close and expresses His pride to the angels, saying, ‘What do these people want?’”

As for fasting on the day of Arafaah for those not performing Hajj:

The Messenger of Allaah (Sallallaahu ‘alayhi wasallam) was asked about fasting on the Day of ‘Arafaah. He said, “It expiates for the sins of the previous year and of the coming year.” Narrated by Muslim.

As for the du’aa of the fasting person:

Our Prophet (Sallallaahu ‘alayhi wasallam) said: “There are three prayers that are not rejected: the prayer of a father for his child, the prayer of the fasting person and the prayer of the traveller.”
