There Is Not A Day In The World Where Allāh Emancipates From The Fire Like The Day Of ‘Arafah
Shaykh Ibn Bāz رحمه الله said: “So the day of ‘Arafah is a great day. There is not a day in this world where Allāh Emancipates (persons) from the fire like the day of ‘Arafah. So it is necessary to make a lot du’ā and exert one’s self in making du’ā and frequently (saying) ‘Lā Ilāha ill-Allāh since it is a du’ā.”
● [فتاوى نور على الدرب ٣٩٩/١٧]
Imaam An-Nawawee [رحمه الله] stated:
❝It has reached us from Saalim bin ‘Abdillaah bin ‘Umar [رضي الله عنه], that he saw a petitioner asking from the people on the day of ‘Arafah, so he said: ‘O feeble one! On this day is other than Allaah, The Mighty and Majestic to be asked from?’❞
● [Al-Adhkaar, (Page: 210)]
Abdullāh Ibn Mubārak رحمه الله: “I entered upon Sufyān al-Thawrī on the evening of ‘Arafah whilst he was kneeling on his knees and his eyes shedding tears, so he turned towards me and I said to him:
Do you know who the loser is today?
He replied: The one who thinks Allāh shall not forgive him!
