Arafat Day

Arafat Day is an important holiday celebrated by Muslims, and it is observed on the 9th day of Dhu al-Hijjah of the lunar Islamic Calendar.

Arafat Day is the holiest day in the Islamic calendar and it is the day before the major Islamic holiday of Eid al-Adha. Arafat Day commemorates Muhammad's Farewell Sermon and the completion of the message of Islam.

Mount Arafah is a granite hill at the southeast of Mecca in the plain of Arafah, and it is at this place where Prophet Muhammad delivered the Farewell Sermon to the Muslims.

Pilgrims arrive at Arafah before noon during the holiday to seek mercy of God, while non-pilgrims are recommended to fasting.
