The Day of Arafah is the ninth day of the twelfth month of the Muslim lunar calendar Zul Hij. This holiday is one of the most memorable days of Allah, when the performance of good deeds is rewarded many times, as well as the weight of sins increases significantly. The most important act that brings believers closer to Allah is fasting on the day of Arafat. From Abu Qatada, may Allah be pleased with him, it is reported that regarding fasting on the Day of ‘Arafah, the Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said: "It serves as an atonement for [the sins] of the past year and the next year!" (Muslim reports).

Pilgrims pray at the foot of Mount Arafat near Mecca, where, according to legend, Eve and Adam met after the expulsion them from Paradise. Participants of the Hajj perform a mass ritual: they stand until sunset and pray for the forgiveness of their sins. During the reading of the dua, they are not limited solely to themselves, but mention relatives, friends and all Muslims.

Performing the Hajj requires a number of conditions: reaching the age of majority; mental health; practicing Islam; sufficient funds to ensure the pilgrimage and the maintenance of the family left at home; awareness of the obligation of the Hajj; early departure on the road, so as not to miss the beginning of the Hajj.

In addition to the mandatory conditions, there are some other requirements for performing the Hajj. The believer must be in good health, he must have no obstacles to the pilgrimage (for example, being under criminal investigation), the woman must have an escort.


Традиции празднования

On this great day, you cannot shout at those who ask you and see someone humiliated. It is necessary to distribute alms as much as possible, performing pious deeds. The prescribed element of the Hajj is standing on Arafat at a certain time, even if the rite is short-lived. The standing period begins just after noon on the ninth day of Dhul-Hijjah and ends with the dawn of the tenth day of that month. If a person does not participate in the rite of standing, this means that he did not perform the Hajj.

During the Hajj, a Muslim must perform the following rites:

put on the robes of a pilgrim, signifying a state of purity, spiritually and physically;

make the first detour around the sacred Kaaba, towards which Muslims turn while reading a prayer;

stand in the valley of Arafat, offering prayers to Allah;

after standing in the Arafat valley, make a farewell detour around the Kaaba.

After wearing the ritual clothes, a Muslim enters a state of ritual purity, so he is prohibited from certain actions that make the Hajj invalid. These include trading, smoking, marital relations and others.
