Erased Sins by Fasting the Day of Arafah

Don’t forget to do fasting at Arafah day (9 Dhul-Hijjah). Because, fasting that day can erase two years of sins! Simple deed with such a great reward.

A hadith from Abu Qatadah, he says:

سُئِلَ عَنْ صَوْمِ يَوْمِ عَرَفَةَ فَقَالَ يُكَفِّرُ السَّنَةَ الْمَاضِيَةَ وَالْبَاقِيَةَ وَسُئِلَ عَنْ صَوْمِ يَوْمِ عَاشُورَاءَ فَقَالَ يُكَفِّرُ السَّنَةَ الْمَاضِيَةَ

The Prophet ﷺ was asked about fasting the day of Arafah and he said, “It will expiate the sins of the previous and upcoming years”. Then, the Prophet ﷺ was asked about fasting the day of Ashura and he said, “It will expiate the sins of the past year” [Saheeh Muslim].

So, the day of Arafah insha Allah will come next week, so don’t miss it. And, remind it to people around you.
