Arafah Is Tuesday, Strive To Fast That Day!

Today is the 5th day of Dhul Hijjah, according to the counting of NSCIA and Haramain Sharifain. Next week, Wednesday is the day of Eid, and thus Tuesday is the day of Arafah when fasting is recommended.

It was reported from Abu Qutaadah (may Allaah be pleased with him) that the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) was asked about fasting on the Day of ‘Arafaah. He said, “It expiates for the sins of the previous year and of the coming year.” Narrated by Muslim.

Fasting on the Day of ‘Arafaah is recommended for those who are not on Hajj. However, for those who are performing Hajj, it is not Sunnah to fast on the Day of ‘Arafaah because the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) did not fast on this day in ‘Arafaah.

Please don’t forget to save it in your calendar.

May Allah accept our good deeds (Ameen).
