What to do on the Day of ‘Arafah

Imam Nawawi (rh) mentions in his book “al Adkhar” page 333, that the day of ‘Arafah is the best day of the year for du’a. So, a person should free themselves up and increase in making du’a, doing dhikr and reading Qur’an. One should make du’a with many different types of supplication and many different types of dhikr.

One should make du’a for themselves, their parents, those close to them from their family, their teachers, their companions, their friends, those whom they love, whoever has done good for them and for all the Muslims.

They should also take extra precautions of falling short in any of these as this day isn’t something to be missed out on and it can’t be made up.


Hastening Towards Good Deeds

Imam Nawawi (rh) mentions hastening to do good deeds.

Scholars mention that a person should hasten to do good deeds whilst the opportunity is there, as they mention the opportunity may be taken away and may not return again.

Remember, if one person acts upon the good you call them to or a project you are involved in, inshaa’Allah you have a world of good to look forward to in the next life!
