Dua on the day of Arafah

On the day of Arafah, one should recite the following dua abundantly:

لَا إِلٰهَ إِلَّا اللهُ وَحْدَهُ لَا شَرِيْكَ لَهُ لَهُ الْمُلْكُ وَلَهُ الْحَمْدُ بِيَدِهِ الْخَيْرُ وَهُوَ عَلٰى كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيْرٌ

There is no deity besides Allah Ta‘ala alone, who has no partner. To Him belongs the kingdom (of the entire universe), and only for Him belongs all praise. In His hands (control) alone lies all good and He alone has complete power over everything.

أخبرني عمرو بن شعيب، عن أبيه، عن جده، قال: كان أكثر دعاء رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم يوم عرفة: لا إله إلا الله وحده لا شريك له، له الملك وله الحمد، بيده الخير، وهو على كل شيء قدير (مسند أحمد، الرقم: 6961)

Hazrat Abdullah bin Amr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) would recite the following dua abundantly on the day of Arafah:

لَا إِلٰهَ إِلَّا اللهُ وَحْدَهُ لَا شَرِيْكَ لَهُ لَهُ الْمُلْكُ وَلَهُ الْحَمْدُ بِيَدِهِ الْخَيْرُ وَهُوَ عَلٰى كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيْرٌ

On the day of Arafah, one should engage in dua. This day is a mubaarak day, even more blessed than the other ten days of Zul Hijjah. It is reported that Hazrat Ali (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) mentioned that on this day, Allah Ta‘ala emancipates more people from the fire of Jahannum than on any other day.

Hazrat Ali (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) would also make the following dua on the day of Arafah and encouraged some of his companions to make the same dua:

اَللّٰهُمَّ أَعْتِقْ رَقَبَتِيْ مِنَ النَّارِ وَأَوْسِعْ لِيْ مِنَ الرِّزْقِ الْحَلالِ وَاصْرِفْ عَنِّيْ فَسَقَةَ الْجِنِّ وَالْإِنْسِ

O Allah! Free my neck from the fire of Jahannum, bless me with abundant halaal sustenance, and repel from me the evil and transgressive jinn and people. (Lataaif-ul-Ma’aarif pg. 284)
