“There is no day on which Allah frees more people from the Fire than the Day of Arafah. He comes close and expresses His pride to the angels, saying, ‘What do these people want?” (Muslim)
What a blessing to be able to witness another Day of Arafah, which is considered the best day of the entire Islamic calendar, offering multiplied rewards, and unparalleled mercy.
Give your Zakat, fulfil this beautiful duty, and reap Allah’s mercy.
From £26 – give your Qurbani this Dhul Hijjah, £15 - Gift an olive tree to a vulnerable family.
Sponsor an orphan - £35 per month (£1.15 per day) or £420 per year.
£200 – Give a vulnerable Palestinian with a serious health condition the surgery they urgently need.
£800 - Install a deep water well, changing the future of an entire community.
Here’s how to make the most of the blessed Day of Arafah:
Fast - A beloved act with a beautiful reward. The Messenger (PBUH) said that fasting on this day “It expiates for the sins of the previous year and of the coming year.” (Muslim)
Dua - Make dua for yourself, your family, and the ummah.
The Prophet told us of the best dua to perform on this day:
“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)
“Laa ilaaha ila-laahu, wahdahu laa shareeka lahu, lahul-mulku wa lahul-hamd, wa huwa ‘alaa kulli shayin qadeer”
Give your Zakat and reap the magnified blessings for this act. - If you’ve already given your Zakat for the year, then you can still reap Allah’s mercy through supporting any of our projects with your Sadaqah. You could provide an entire community with water for years to come, or provide oppressed Palestinian farmers with a livelihood through olive trees, or support an orphaned or street child with shelter and education for a brighter future.
Qurbani - Don’t forget to give your Qurbani to multiply your reward on this blessed day. Make sure you have fulfilled your Qurbani duty, which you can do for as little as £26, or have an even greater impact by giving an extra Qurbani on behalf those in the ummah struggling with malnutrition and extreme hunger. Give your Qurbani in Somalia for £50, in Yemen for £110, or in Syria for £235. We have a limited number of animals available. Don't miss out on the rewards of the blessed day of Arafah.
It’s the powerful day of the year where Allah promises His mercy to all who ask. Don’t let the Day of Arafah pass without making the most of Allah’s mercy.
Fast. Pray. Give. Seek the blessings of this merciful day of forgiveness.
“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
