Q: When should the Takbir (saying: “Allahu Akbar [Allah is the Greatest]”) restricted to after the obligatory daily Salahs (Prayers) [during the days of `Eid-ul-Adha (the Festival of the Sacrifice)] start? What is the evidence of its legality?

A: It is prescribed for pilgrims to say Talbiyah (devotional expressions chanted at certain times during Hajj and `Umrah) from the time they enter Ihram (ritual state for Hajj or `Umrah) until they throw the pebbles at Jamrat-ul-`Aqabah (the closest pebble-throwing area to Makkah). This is based on the Hadith reported on the authority of Ibn `Umar (may Allah be pleased with him and his father): We left early in the morning with the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) from Mina to `Arafah; some of us were performing Talbiyah and the others performing Takbir. Pilgrims should start restricted Takbir after offering the Zhuhr (Noon) Prayer on the Day of Nahr (Sacrifice, 10th of Dhul-Hijjah, when pilgrims slaughter their sacrificial animals) until the `Asr (Afternoon) Prayer on the last of the Days of Tashriq (11th, 12th, and 13th of Dhul-Hijjah). As for non-pilgrims, they should start Takbir starting from after the Fajr (Dawn) Prayer on the Day of `Arafah (9th of Dhul-Hijjah) until the end of the Days of Tashriq. The evidence of its legality is the Saying of Allah (Exalted be He): And remember Allâh during the appointed Days. And: …and that you must magnify Allâh [i.e. to say Takbîr (Allâhu Akbar; Allâh is the Most Great)] for having guided youThis is also supported by the fact that the Sahabah (Companions of the Prophet) used to do so.

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.”

The Prophet (ﷺ) said:

 “The best of supplication is supplication of the day of Arafat, and the best of what I and the Prophets before me said is:

Laa ilaaha illallaahu wahdahu laa shareeka lah, lahul-mulku walahul-hamdu wahuwa ‘ala kulli shay-in qadeer

( There is No deity worthy of worship other than Allaah, who is alone, having no partner. His is the dominion, and to Him belongs all praise. He is, of everything, All-Capable).”

[Narrated by al-Tirmidhi (3585) and classed as hasan by al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Targheeb, 1536.]

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…
