Invocation to be recited on the day of arafat
Not everyone can go on Hajj, and certainly not every year, but this Day of Arafa is one of the great gifts of Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) that people all over the world can benefit from. On this day, Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) grants fasting Muslims forgiveness for their faults of two years, if they have committed any, if not, Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) elevates their degree in Paradise. The Muslims should celebrate the day of Arafa by restraining themselves from committing sins and iniquities in order that Allah may forgive them.
The Prophet of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “On this day (of Arafa) whomsoever holds his hearing, sight, and tongue (from committing sins), he will be forgiven by Allah.” [Ahmad] Muslims should say the Tahlil (La ilaha il Allah), Tasbeeh (Subhanallah) and Takbeer (Allahu Akbar). It is also recommended to do as much dua (supplication) as possible on this day, since “there is no other day on which Allah frees a larger number of His slaves from the Fire of Hell than the Day of Arafah.” [Sahih Muslim]
The Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “The best supplication is on the day of Arafa, and the best remembrance that I and the prophets before me (made) is: “There is no god but Allah, the only true God, who has no partner. To Him belongs the kingdom (of the universe) and to Him all praises are due. And He has the power to do every thing.” [Tirmidhi]
