عن أبي قتادة قال قال رسول الله صلی الله عليه وسلم صيام يوم عرفة إني أحتسب علی الله أن يکفر السنة التي قبله والتي بعده
Narrated from Abu Qatadah that the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said: “Fasting on the Day of ‘Arafah, I hope from Allah, expiates for the sins of the year before and the year after.”
[Sunan Ibn-e-Majah, Chapters on Fasting, Hadith: 1730]
The day of ‘Arafaah is a day of forgiveness for sins, freedom from the Fire, and pride in the people who are there.
The Prophet (pbuh) said: “Allah expresses His pride to His angels at the time of ‘Ishaa’ on the Day of ‘Arafaah, about the people of ‘Arafaah. He says, ‘Look at My slaves who have come unkempt and dusty.’” [Ahmad]
It was narrated from ‘Abd-Allaah ibn ‘Amr ibn al-‘Aas (may Allaah be pleased with him) that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “The best of du’aa’ is du’aa’ on the day of ‘Arafah, and the best that I and the Prophets before me said is
لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا اللهُ وَحْدَهُ لَا شَرِيكَ لَهُ لَهُ الْمُلْكُ وَلَهُ الْحَمْدُ وَهُوَ عَلَى كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيرٌ
‘Laa ilaaha ill-Allaah wahdahu la shareeka lah, lahu’l–mulk wa lahu’l–hamd wa huwa ‘ala kulli shay’in qadeer
(There is no god but Allaah alone, with no partner or associate; His is the dominion, to Him be praise, and He has power over all things).” Narrated by al-Tirmidhi (3585)’ classed as hasan by al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Targheeb (1536).
May Allah accept our fasting and forgive our sins
