The incredible day of Arafah is right around the corner. Allah has promised to extinguish a lifetime worth of sins for the pilgrims. However for those who don’t get the chance to make the pilgrimage, Allah has promised an alternative reward. By simply fasting the day of Arafah, Allah removes two years worth of sins from that individual who indeed fasted on that day.
So with the day of Arafah around the corner is to come Eid Al-Adha, the second of the two Islamic festivals. Eid al-Adha celebrations start after the descent of the Hujjaj, the pilgrims performing the Hajj, from Mount Arafat.
