Eid Al Adha And Fasting On The Day Of Arafah
As we are approaching the blessed day of Eid Al Adha, on the evening of 20th August 2018, it is worth to remind ourselves of the rewards of fasting on the day of ‘Arafah. (Fasting from dawn till sunset on the 20th August 2018, 9th day of Dhul Hijjah )
Our Prophet (Sallallahu ‘Alaihi wa Sallam) said, “Fasting on the Day of ‘Arafah absolves the sins for two years: the previous year and the coming year, and fasting on ‘Ashura, (the tenth day of Muharram) atones for the sins of previous years.” Reported by all except Al-Bukhari and At-Tirmidhi.
May Allah gives us the opportunity to perform the Sunnah of our beloved Prophet Muhammad ((Sallallahu ‘Alaihi wa Sallam).
