The Prophet (peace be upon him andhis family) Dua on the Day of Arafa
The following is narrated through a chain of documents to my grandfather Abi Ja‟far al-Tusi – may God be pleased with him – in Tahzib ul-Ahkam through a chain of documents to our Master As-Sadiq (as),“God‟s Prophet (as) asked Ali (as), "Do you want me to teach you the supplications for the day of Arafa that the Prophets before me used?" Then say the following:

لا إِلهَ إِلَّا اللَّهُ‌ وَحْدَهُ‌ لا شَرِيكَ لَهُ‌ لَهُ الْمُلْكُ وَ لَهُ الْحَمْدُ
There is no God but God. He is One and there are no partners for Him. Sovereignty belongs to Him and Praise belongs to Him

يُحْيِي وَ يُمِيتُ‌ وَ هُوَ حَيٌّ لَا يَمُوتُ بِيَدِهِ الْخَيْرُ وَ هُوَ عَلى‌ كُلِّ شَيْ‌ءٍ قَدِيرٌ
He gives life and causes to die. And He is the Everlasting for Whom there is no death and in His Hands is all goodness and He has power over all things.

اللَّهُمَّ لَكَ الْحَمْدُ كَالَّذِي تَقُولُ وَ خَيْراً مِمَّا نَقُولُ وَ فَوْقَ مَا يَقُولُ الْقَائِلُونَ
my God! All praise belongs to You as we say and better than what we say, and above and beyond what the best orators say

اللَّهُمَّ لَكَ صَلَاتِي وَ نُسُكِي وَ مَحْيَايَ وَ مَمَاتِي وَ لَكَ بَرَاءَتِي وَ لَكَ [بِكَ‌] حَوْلِي وَ مِنْكَ قُوَّتِي
my God! Truly, my prayer and my service of sacrifice, my life and my death, are all for You. I abstain by You and I hold myself. I get my strength from You

اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنَ الْفَقْرِ وَ مِنْ وَسْوَاسِ الصَّدْرِ وَ مِنْ شَتَاتِ الْأَمْرِ وَ مِنْ عَذَابِ الْقَبْرِ
my God! I take refuge in You from poverty and temptations of the heart, dispersion of the affairs, and torture of the grave

اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَسْأَلُكَ خَيْرَ الرِّيَاحِ وَ أَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنْ شَرِّ مَا يَجِي‌ءُ بِهِ الرِّيَاحُ وَ أَسْأَلُكَ خَيْرَ اللَّيْلِ وَ النَّهَارِ
my God! I ask You for the best wind. And I take refuge in You from the evils of things by which winds flow in the air. And I ask You for the best night and day

اللَّهُمَّ اجْعَلْ فِي قَلْبِي نُوراً وَ فِي سَمْعِي وَ بَصَرِي نُوراً وَ فِي لَحْمِي وَ عِظَامِي نُوراً وَ فِي عُرُوقِي وَ مَقْعَدِي‌ وَ مَقَامِي وَ مَدْخَلِي وَ مَخْرَجِي نُوراً
O‟ my God! Please let a light shine upon my heart, light in my hearing and sight, light in my flesh and bones, light in my veins, position, entrance and exit.

وَ أَعْظِمْ لِي نُوراً يَا رَبِّ يَوْمَ أَلْقَاكَ‌ إِنَّكَ عَلى‌ كُلِّ شَيْ‌ءٍ قَدِيرٌ.
O my Lord! Please brighten my light on the Day I shall meet You as You have power over all things.


Imam Ali Ridha (as) dua on Arafah:

اللَّهُمَّ كَمَا سَتَرْتَ عَلَيَّ مَا لَمْ أَعْلَمْ فَاغْفِرْ لِي مَا تَعْلَمُ
"O‟ my God! As You covered from me what I do not know of, please forgive me for which You know of.

وَ كَمَا وَسِعَنِي عِلْمُكَ فَلْيَسَعْنِي عَفْوُكَ وَ كَمَا بَدَأْتَنِي بِالْإِحْسَانِ فَأَتِمَّ نِعْمَتَكَ بِالْغُفْرَانِ
As Your Knowledge encompasses me, please let Your Pardon encompass me, too.

وَ كَمَا أَكْرَمْتَنِي بِمَعْرِفَتِكَ فَاشْفَعْهَا بِمَغْفِرَتِكَ
As You initiated Your Kindness for me, please perfect the blessing of Your Bounties by forgiving.

وَ كَمَا عَرَّفْتَنِي وَحْدَانِيَّتَكَ فَأَكْرِمْنِي بِطَاعَتِكَ [لماعيتك‌]
As You let me know about Your Oneness, please honor me with Your Obedience:

وَ كَمَا عَصَمْتَنِي مَا لَمْ أَكُنْ أَعْتَصِمُ مِنْهُ إِلَّا بِعِصْمَتِكَ فَاغْفِرْ لِي مَا لَوْ شِئْتَ عَصَمْتَنِي مِنْهُ
As You protected me from what I could not protect myself except by Your support. Thus, please forgive me for what You could have protected me against if You wished!

يَا جَوَادُ يَا كَرِيمُ يَا ذَا الْجَلَالِ وَ الْإِكْرَامِ.
O‟ Munificent! O‟ the All-Generous! O‟ Lord of Majesty, Bounty and Honor!”
May God have Mercy upon you! Look at those whom you follow, are guided by their light, and try to be like them when you pray and adhere to their humble characteristics when they pray.

At the last hour of the `Arafah Day, it is recommended to say the following:

يَا رَبِّ إِنَّ ذُنُوبِي لاَ تَضُرُّكَ
ya rabbi inna dhunubi la tadurruka
O my Lord, my sins do not harm You

وَإِنَّ مَغْفِرَتَكَ لِي لاَ تَنْقُصُكَ
wa inna maghfirataka li la tanqusuka
nor will Your forgiveness to me reduce Your Grandeur.

فَأَعْطِنِي مَا لاَ يَنْقُصُكَ
fa'a`tini ma la yanqusuka
So, (please do) grant me that which does not reduce Your Grandeur

وَٱغْفِرْ لِي مَا لاَ يَضُرُّكَ
waghfir li ma la yadurruka
and forgive me that which does not harm You.


It is also recommended to say the following:

اَللَّهُمَّ لاَ تَحْرِمْنِي خَيْرَ مَا عِنْدَكَ لِشَرِّ مَا عِنْدِي
allahumma la tahrimni khayra ma `indaka lisharri ma `indi
O Allah, (please) do not deprive me of the good that You have because of the evil that I have.

فَإِنْ أَنْتَ لَمْ تَرْحَمْنِي بِتَعَبِي وَنَصَبِي
fa'in anta lam tarhamni bita`abi wa nasabi
If You do not have mercy upon me due to my fatigue and tiredness,

فَلاَ تَحْرِمْنِي أَجْرَ ٱلْمُصَابِ عَلَىٰ مُصيبَتِهِ
fala tahrimni ajra almusabi `ala musibatihi
(please) then do not deprive me of the reward of those whom are afflicted with misfortunes.


The following is narrated through a chain of documents to Muhammad ibn al-Hassan ibn al-Valid, on the authority of Al-Qasim ibn Hussein al-Nayshaburi, through a chain of narrators who said that he saw Aba Ja‟far (as) in Arafah with his hands raised towards the sky. He (as) held them up like that until he moved from Arafah towards Mina. The following is reported on the authority of Muhammad ibn al-Hassan al-saf‟far, through a chain of documents on the authority of Ali ibn Davood. “I saw Aba Abdullah (as) in Arafah while he was holding his clothes with his hands, with his head down towards the earth and pointing with the finger of his right hand and was saying, "This is all of me for all my crimes!‟” The following is reported with a chain of documents on the authority of Muhammad ibn al-Hassan ibn al-Valid, with a chain of documents on the authority of Himad ibn Abdullah. Once when I was with Abil-Hassan Musa (as) at sunset, he (as) held his robe with his left hand and said the following,

اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي عَبْدُكَ وَ ابْنُ عَبْدِكَ أَنْ تُعَذِّبَنِي فَبِأُمُورٍ قَدْ سَلَفَتْ مِنِّي وَ أَنَا بَيْنَ يَدَيْكَ بِرُمَّتِي
“O‟ my God! I am Your servant! I am the son of Your servant! If You Punish me it is for my past deeds, while I am standing right here in front of You.
وَ إِنْ تَعْفُ عَنِّي فَأَهْلُ الْعَفْوِ أَنْتَ يَا أَهْلَ الْعَفْوِ يَا أَحَقَّ مَنْ عَفَى اغْفِرْ لِي وَ لِأَصْحَابِي-
O‟ Pardoner! If You pardon me it is as You deserve since You are Lord of Pardon. O‟ He who is the best to Pardon me! Please forgive me and my companions.”
