Archive for the ‘Shaykh Saalih al-Fawzaan (may Allaah preserve him)’ Category

Al-Allaamah Shaykh Saalih al-Fawzaan (may Allaah preserve him) stated:

“Likewise (from the beneficial matters of Hajj) is the Du’aa of ‘Arafah.

The Prophet (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) mentioned:

“The best Du’aa, is the Du’aa of ‘Arafah. The best of that which myself and the Prophets before me have said is: –

Laa Ilaaha Illallaah Wahdahu Laa Shareeka Lahu, Lahul Mulk Wa Lahul Hamd Wa Huwa Alaa Kulli Shay In Qadeer

– None has the right to be worshiped except Allaah, who is alone without partners. For Him is the dominion and the praise. He is capable of doing all things.”

(Musnad of Ahmad and Sunan of At-Tirmidhee Declared good by Shaykh Al-Albaani)

This is the best of that which the Prophet (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) said and He named it the Du’aa of ‘Arafah. That is because the Du’aa is of two types:

1. Du’aa of worship. The statement ((Laa Ilaaha Illallaah)) is the Du’aa of worship and praise for Allaah. All of this is the Du’aa of worship.

2. Du’aa of request. It is that you ask Allaah to forgive you, to have mercy upon you, or that you ask that He provides for you, guides you, make you firmly established (upon the religion of Islaam), forgive your parents, forgive your children and forgive your brothers… This is the Du’aa of request and it is that you ask Allaah (for that which you are seeking).

The example of this is the statement of Allaah:

“You (Allaah) alone we worship and You (Allaah) alone we seek for help”
(Faatihah: 5)

So the statement “You (Allaah) alone we worship” this is the Du’aa of worship. The statement “You (Allaah) alone we seek for help”, this is the Du’aa of request. Therefore, we have in one verse the Du’aa of worship and the Du’aa of request.”

Pearls of a Muslim

The Noble Shaykh Saalih al-Fawzaan (may Allah have mercy upon him) stated:

This day (the Day of Arafah) has within it a tremendous virtue. When he (the Prophet) was asked about fasting on it he said: “It expiates the previous year and the remaining year,” meaning the following year. Fasting (on that day) expiates two years. This indicates the virtue of fasting the Day of Arafah. The expiation for the previous year is clear because it expiates the evil that is present and that which has taken place. However, expiation for the following year and nothing from it has taken place, this has within it a problem (for many regarding its understanding). How can it expiate that which hasn’t taken place? They (the scholars) have said, the meaning of it expiating the remaining year (meaning the following year) is that the person is given the success to keep away from…

The Noble Shaykh Saalih al-Fawzaan (may Allah have mercy upon him) stated:

This day (the Day of Arafah) has within it a tremendous virtue. When he (the Prophet) was asked about fasting on it he said: “It expiates the previous year and the remaining year,” meaning the following year. Fasting (on that day) expiates two years. This indicates the virtue of fasting the Day of Arafah. The expiation for the previous year is clear because it expiates the evil that is present and that which has taken place. However, expiation for the following year and nothing from it has taken place, this has within it a problem (for many regarding its understanding). How can it expiate that which hasn’t taken place? They (the scholars) have said, the meaning of it expiating the remaining year (meaning the following year) is that the person is given the success to keep away from the acts of disobedience in the year that comes after. Or, if there does take place from him an act of disobedience, he is given the success to make Tawbah. This is the meaning of the fast expiating the remaining year.

Question: Is the expiation of the sins something for the major sins as well as the minor sins or is it specific for the minor sins?

Answer: The expiation of the sins is specific for the minor sins. As for the major sins, nothing expiates it except for making Tawbah. This is based upon the statement of Allah: “If you abstain from the major sins that you have been prohibited from We will expiate from you your evil actions.” (Soorah an-Nisaa: 31) However, fasting on the Day of Arafah is only recommended for those not standing in it. As for the one standing in Arafah, then he should not be fasting that day, following the example of the Prophet. Indeed he stood in Arafah not fasting on this day.”
