Day of Arafah

  I hope everyone had the opportunity to take advantage of the day of Arafah as we know that fasting on this day "expiates for two years, one prior and one forthcoming" [Muslim, Abu Dawud, Nasa'i, and Ibn Majah] This is highly recommended (mustahabb) and if you missed out this year, inshAllah next year you'll be able to fast and gain all the blessings this day has to offer.
  The Prophet (pbuh) said, "The best of supplications are those on the Day of Arafah." [Tirmidhi, Ahmad, Malik]  The Day of Arafah is one of the days where duaas (supplications) are more likely to be accepted, so this day weights very heavily in blessings. I pray that Allah SWT answers all the duaas we make today and accepts our fasts Ameen.

laa ilaaha ill-Allah wahdahu laa shareeka lah, lahul-mulk wa lahul-hamd, yuhii wa yomit wa huwa ala kulli shayin qadeer
