Why Fast the Day of ‘Arafah?

The Prophet (ṣallallāhu ʿalayhi wa-sallam) was asked about fasting on the day of ’Arafah, so he said, “It expiates the sins of the past year and the coming year.” [4]

It is on this day that the pilgrims gather at the mountain plain of ’Arafah, praying and supplicating to their Lord. It is mustahabb (highly recommended) for those who are not pilgrims to fast on this day.
Likewise, the Prophet (ṣallallāhu ʿalayhi wa-sallam) said, ‘There is no day on which Allāh frees people from the Fire more so than on the day of ’Arafah. He comes close to those (people standing on ’Arafah), and then He reveals before His Angels saying, ‘What are these people seeking.” [5]

Imām al-Tirmidhī (d.275H) – raḥimahullāh – said,

“The People of Knowledge consider it recommended to fast on the day of ’Arafah, except for those at ’Arafah.” [6]

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

Chapter Nine : On the Day of ‘Arafah

There is no doubt that the day of ‘Arafah is a great day from the blessed days of Allaah and is a large gathering from the gatherings of goodness, Eemaan and Taqwaa. It is a season which is welcomed with great importance. A season from the seasons of obedience and worship, a day where the shedding of tears increases, where there are continuous supplications, where mercy descends and shortcomings are rectified, a day where mistakes are forgiven, a day of hope and humility, submissiveness and humbleness.

Indeed it is a noble blessed day. The sun never rose on a day better than the day of ‘Arafah. Indeed it has been specified with noble merits, great privileges and important characteristics. It is no easy…

Chapter Nine : On the Day of ‘Arafah

There is no doubt that the day of ‘Arafah is a great day from the blessed days of Allaah and is a large gathering from the gatherings of goodness, Eemaan and Taqwaa.

Indeed it is a noble blessed day. The sun never rose on a day better than the day of ‘Arafah. Indeed it has been specified with noble merits, great privileges and important characteristics. It is no easy task to encompass all its characteristics, nor is it possible to fully investigate them all.

Indeed it is the day on which Allaah completed this Deen for the Ummah and completed His favour for them, as on that day the saying of Allaah Ta’ala was revealed:
