Day of Arafat


allahuakbarNarrated by Jabir(Radhiallaho anho):
 Allah’s Messenger (sallallaahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said “The ten days
 of the month of Dhul-Hijjah are the best days in the sight of Allah.”
 A man asked, “Are these days better than an equivalent number of days that are spent fighting for the cause of Allah?” The Prophet (peace be upon him) answered, “They are better than an equivalent number of days spent fighting in the cause of Allah. And there is no day better in the sight of Allah than the Day of Arafah. On this day Allah, the Almighty and the Exalted One, descends to the nearest heaven, and He is proud of His slaves on the earth, and says to those in heaven, “Look at My servants. They have come from far and near, with hair dishevelled and faces covered with dust, to seek My Mercy, even though they have not seen my chastisement. Far more people are freed from the Hellfire on the Day of Arafah than on any other day.”
 
Al-Mundhri said that this hadith was reported by Abu Ya’la, al-
 Bazzar, Ibn Khuzaimah, and Ibn Hibban, in whose wording it is given
 here.
