Good Deed Idea for Thul-Hijjah- Day #8 ~Preparing for Arafah!~

Assalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahy Wa Barakatu 🤝

Tomorrow is the BIG DAY, the 🏔 Day of Arafah! 🏔

💡 Good Deed Idea of the Day: 💡

Preparing for the Day of Arafah

#1: Try your absolute best to FAST if you are able to tomorrow! Fasting on the day of Arafah erases the sins of the previous year, as well as the coming year! What an amazing opportunity from our Most Merciful, Most Forgiving Lord 

#2: Encourage your family and friends to fast so they don’t miss this opportunity! For kids, let them pick a special snack for iftar to motivate them! If they can’t fast full day, have them at least try half day, or take a “break” in the middle of the day!

#3: Duaa, Duaa, Duaa:

  • The Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, said: “The most excellent dua is the dua on the Day of Arafah, and the best of what I and the prophets before me have said, is “There is nothing that deserves to be worshiped in truth except Allah, He is Alone and has no partner, to Him belongs the dominion and to Him belongs all praise, and He is All-Powerful over all things.'” (Muwatta)

لا إله إلا الله وحده لا شريك له ، له الملك ، وله الحمد ، وهو على كل شيء قدير

La Illah Illallah, wahda-hu, la sha-ree-ka lah, lahul mulk, wa lahul hamd, wa-hu-wa ‘ala, kully shay-in qadeer
