The day of Arafah

The Day of Arafah (Arabic: يوم عرفة‎) is an Islamic holiday that falls on the 9th day of Dhu al-Hijjah of the lunar Islamic Calendar. It is the second day of the Hajj pilgrimage and the day after is the first day of the major Islamic holiday of Eid al-Adha. At dawn of this day, Muslim pilgrims will make their way from Mina to a nearby hillside and plain called Mount Arafah and the Plain of Arafah. It was from this site that Muhammad gave one of his last famous sermons in the final year of his life. Muslims hold that part of the Qur'anic verse announcing that the religion of Islam had been perfected was revealed on this day.

Commemoration of Muhammad's final sermon and completion of the message of Islam. Marks the second day of the Pilgrimage or Hajj for the millions of Muslims who make the trip to Makkah each year. A day on which Muslims who did not go to Hajj fast to repent for their sins.

يوم عرفة هو يوم التاسع من شهر ذي الحجة، ويعد من أفضل الأيام عند المسلمين إذ أنه أحد أيام العشر من ذي الحجة. فيه يقف الحُجّاج على جبل عرفة حيث أن الوقوف بعرفة يعد أهم أركان الحج، ويقع جبل عرفة شرق مكة على الطريق الرابط بينها وبين الطائف بحوالي 22 كم، وعلى بعد 10 كيلومترات من مشعر منى و6 كيلو مترات من مزدلفة، وهو المشعر الوحيد الذي يقع خارج حدود الحرم.
