Day of “Arafah” is the 9th day of Dhu al-Hijjah, the twelfth month in the Islamic calendar and the month before Muharram.
It was narrated that on the day of “Arafah”, Imam Hussain (PBUH) along with a group of his family members and some of his followers came out the tent at the desert of “Arafat”, a place located near the city of Mecca. Imam Hussain then stood towards the Ka’bah and raised up his hands and pray to God while his face were flowed with tears.
Imam Hussain’s prayer which is called Arafah prayer (Dua Arafa) contains with the highest theological and spiritual teachings. Shia Muslim people recite this Dua on the same day each year during Haj pilgrimage or even far from Mecca at their local mosques or the holy shrines.
Arafah 2018 is on this coming Tuesday, on the 21th of Aug. So, I prepared the following image with a part of Imam Hussain’s prayer to God on the day of Arafah:
“…O’ my Lord!…and [O’] the revealer of the Torah and the Bible and the Psalms and the Furqan, and the revealer of kaf-ha-ya-`ayn-sad and Ta-ha and Ya-Sin and the Quran, full of wisdom! You are my haven when the wide courses fail to carry me and when the earth, despite its width, becomes too narrow to bear me…”
-A part of Dua Arafah by Imam Hussain(PBUH)
یا الهی… و منزل التوریة و الانجیل و الزبور و الفرقان و منزل کهیعص و طه و یس و القرآن الحکیم! انت کهفی حین تعیینی المذاهب فی سعتها و تضیق بی الارض برحبها…
دعاء الامام الحسین فی یوم عرفة
