What is the Day of Arafah?

The Day of Arafah is one of the most important days for Muslims.

Allah (SWT) refers to this day in Surah al-Maidah of the Holy Qu’ran.

“This day I have perfected for you your religion and completed My favour upon you and have approved for you Islam as religion.”(Quran 5:3)


It’s the day on which He perfected His religion, completed His favours upon His beloved Prophet Muhammad (SAW), and approved Islam as a way of life! SubhanAllah.

Prophet Muhammad (SAW) also said:

“There is no day on which Allah frees people from the Fire more so than on the day of ‘Arafah. He comes close to those (people standing on ‘Arafah), and then He reveals before His Angels saying, ‘What are these people seeking.” (Muslim)


When is the Day of Arafah 2022?

The Day of Arafah is on the 9th day of Dhul Hijjah, the twelfth and final month of the Islamic calendar. This year, it is expected to fall on Friday 8th July 2022.


Fasting on the Day of Arafah

For those who are unable to perform Hajj, it is highly recommended to fast on the Day of Arafah. There is great reward in doing so, as the Prophet Muhammad (SAW) also said:

“It expiates for the past and coming years.” (Muslim)


What to do on the Day of Arafah?

Be sure to ask for forgiveness – even if you’re not able to stand on the plains of Arafat like the pilgrims of Hajj do.

Make lots of du’a, asking Allah (SWT) for forgiveness. Don’t forget to include your friends, relatives, neighbours as well as the wider Ummah in your du’a on this special day.

Give your Zakat and Sadaqah during the blessed days of Dhul Hijjah and reap the rewards of this blessed month. Don’t forget though to give your Qurbani in time for Eid!
