Brief a’maal for Arafah Day and Night

By: Syeda Abeeda-tuz-Zahra Moosavi Advocate

9th day of Zilhajj is called Roz-e-Arafah (Day of Arafah) while the night between Zilhajj 8 and 9 is called Shab-e-Arafah (Night of Arafah). There have been reported different amaal to be performed on these occasions.

Holy Prophet Muhammad (PBUH & HP) said: “your Adiyah (prayers) are fulfilled and repentance is accepted in this night.” He who spends this night in worship will be given the reward of 170 years of worship.

To take bath and recite Ziarat-e-Imam Hussain (PBUH) are sunnat-e-Muakkada in this night.

According to reports the best amal (deed) in this day, 9th Zilhajj, is duaa. Following are some a’maal of the day as described in books of adiyah:

To take bath;

To recite Ziarat-e-Imam Hussain (PBUH) - it has great excellence, merit and reward as compared to thousand pilgrimages (Hajj), thousand off-seasonal pilgrimages (umrah) and thousand Holy wars (Jihad);

To keep fast;

To recite 47th dua’a of sahifa-e-Kamela and dua’a-e-Imam Hussain (PBUH) for Day of Arafah after asr prayer. (mafateehul Jinan may be consulted for ziarat and dua’a). 

  "Knowledge is better than wealth because it protects you while you have to guard wealth. it decreases if you keep on spending it but the more you make use of knowledge ,the more it increases . what you get through wealth disappears as soon as wealth disappears but what you achieve through knowledge will remain even after you."MORE ..
