Importance of Arafat for Pilgrims:

Standing at the Arafat has vital importance for the pilgrims as the Holy Prophet (S.A.W) has said,

“Hajj is Arafat.” [al-Hakim].

Hazrat Aisha (R.A) has narrated that Allah’s last Prophet Hazrat Muhammad Mustafa (S.A.W) said,

“There is no day in which Allah sets free more souls from the fire of hell than on the day of Arafat. And on that day Allah draws near to the earth and by way of exhibiting His Pride remarks to the angels, ‘What is the desire of these (servants of mine)?’” [Muslim]

Significance of Arafat:

Jabal Arafat is an important place for making Du’a. Pilgrims (Hujjaj) make du’as for themselves and ask for forgiveness from the Almighty Allah. It is an important place and an important part of Hajj as Hazrat Ibrahim (A.S) and the Holy Prophet ( S.A.W) had also made du’a on the mount of Arafat.
