The family room was strewn with toys and various items of clothing.

Day of Arafah( one of the blessed days, loved by Allāh) There is no day on which Allah ransoms more slaves from the Fire than the Day of ‘Arafah 📘Ibn Majah (Sahih) Book 25, Hadith 3128 Allāh took an oath : “By the witnessing day [Friday] and by the witnessed day [the Day of Arafah]. 📖 Surah al-Burooj 85:3 Make tasbeeh, tahleel, tahmeed, & takbeer every moment. -Takbeer is to proclaim the greatness of Allah by saying Allahu Akbar (Allah is Great!) -Tahmeed is to praise Allah by saying Alhamdulillah (All Praise belongs to Allah) -Tahleel is to declare the oneness of Allah by saying La ilaaha illAllah (There is none worthy of worship except Allah) -Tasbeeh is to glorify Allah by saying SubhanAllah (Glory be to Allah) Today & tomorrow prepare a dua list, so that you do not forget asking your wishes from Allāh. 1⃣ Sleep early 💤 tomorrow(Tuesday) night to strengthen💪 yourself for the special day with a Niyyah of fasting the on the day of Arafah. 📚The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) was asked about the observance of Saum (fasting) on the day of ‘Arafah. He said, “It is an expiation for the sins of the preceding year and the current year.” [Muslim]. 📗Riyad as-Salihin Book 9, Hadith 1250 📔Ibn Majah (Sahih) Book 7, Hadith 1802 2⃣ Wake up before Fajr for suhoor(Suhoor/Sehri is a highly recommended Sunnah). However your fast is valid even without Suhoor. 3⃣ Make wudhu, while consciously remembering that your sins are being washed away till the last drop of water💧. 4⃣ Pray at least 4 rakahs(in multiples of 2 rakahs each) of Qiyam(Tahajjud) and make dua for your deen & dunya in your sujood. Cry to Allah, showing Him humility & ask Him to give you tawfeeq on this great day, and thank Him for making you of those who would experience this special occasion. 5⃣ Spend some time⌚ (10-15 mins at least) making Istighfar before Fajr, to be like the righteous whom Allah described as “seeking forgiveness before dawn.” Surah Al-Imran v17 6⃣ Repeat after Fajr adhan & make duaa. Pray Fajr Salat on time. Sit in your prayer place and do your morning adhkar & Quran recitation. Make tasbeeh, tahleel, tahmeed, & takbeer. And also increasing recite: لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا اللهُ وَحَدْهُ لَا شَرِيكَ لَهُ، لَهُ الْمُلْكُ وَلَهُ الْحَمْدُ يُحْيِي وَيُمِيتُ، وَهُوَ عَلَى كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيرٌ La ilaha illallah, wahdahu la shareeka lahu, lahul mulk wa lahul hamd, wa huwa ala kulli shay’in qadeer.” 📚Rasulullah (peace & blessings of Allāh be upon him) said whoever recites this, will get same reward as freeing ten slaves; and 💯good deeds will be written in his accounts, and 💯 sins will be deducted from his accounts, and it (his saying) will be a shield for him from Satan on that day till night. 📕Sahih Bukhari (6403) 7⃣ 15 minutes after sunrise pray 2 rakahs of Ishraaq. 8⃣ If you’re able to stay awake by all means, do so and do not waste a single minute. If you need to sleep, take a nap for an hour with the conscious intention of energizing yourself for the worship of Allah. 9⃣ When you wake up, make wudhu, recite lots of Quran and make the dhikr mentioned above in breaks in between. Pray Dhuhr Salat on time. (Make dhikr after Dhuhr as you prepare food or as you do what is absolutely necessary.) 🔟 After Asr, do lots of Dhikr. Make tasbeeh, tahleel, tahmeed, & takbeer. Then recite Quran again till about an hour before Maghrib. At that point, make LOTS of duaa till you break your fast, while having yaqeen that Allah will answer. Beg with Allāh, cry with tears, that the day will not come to an end except that Allah has forgiven you all your sins and written you among those that He has freed from the Hell Fire. Beg Allāh to write your name among the people crossing Pul-Sirat with the speed of lightning⚡ & entering Jannat-ul-Firdouse without any reckoning. Ameen
Today in sha Allah we are going to describe the history of Sacrifice that prophet Ibrahim did for Allah, we are going to understand in sha Allah the history of Dhul Hijjah month and Arafat day and the Hajj.

The people of Ahlus Sunnah Wal Jama’ah have recently been manipulated by some so-called scholars that saying “Ya RasoolAllah” is not permissible, Haraam and some even, Allah forbid!, say that it’s kufr and shirk.

Proof # 1 (from the Noble Sahaba – RadiyAllahu Anhum):
Imam Muhammad Zarqaani Ibn Abdul Baaqi writes:
