The ninth of Dhu’l-hijjah is one of the great days in Islam. On this day, Almighty Allah commanded His servants to obey and worship Him. He thus extended for them the tables of His benevolence and magnanimity. On this day too, Satan becomes abject, lowly, expelled, and angry more than any other day. The conditions for fulfillment or what hinders the acceptance of prayers, are that you must be clean of all things that make you blameworthy when you appear in front of God to pray. The intellect shows that when you want to enter the presence of one of the kings of the time, meet the Prophet (as), or visit someone who is of a high rank, you should prepare yourself in the best way that helps you get closer to them. You should put on your best clothes, show the best temper, and stand or sit in front of them in a way that pleases them. You do your best even though they have no knowledge of your inner thoughts. With these characteristics, this shows how you should deal with the King of your world and your afterlife Who is aware of all the secrets.
Your needs to Him are greater than all that are present in front of you. Once you cleansed yourself and purified your intellect with the water from the clouds of turning to Your Master, and purified your heart with tears of reverence and humbleness for what is yours in this world and the Hereafter, you should make major ritual ablutions as prescribed for the Arafa day as it is one of the most important issues for this day. Make intention for all the ablutions that you may need on this day. Make intention for repentance since you may still have some faults and illnesses of sins, intention for the Arafa day, for demands, for fulfillment of prayers, ec. You should do so before noon so that you may do the noon prayer and the recommended prayers in this state.
You should be more careful about deeds for the Hereafter than deeds for this life. If a king sets an especial day for the people to appear in front of him and presents their needs to him and his chosen servants teach the people what to say and how to act on that day, then the people will make their utmost effort to learn what the chosen servants have taught them with kindness.
Now you are guided by the light of the intellect, the narrations and the guidance of the Prophet. You should know that when you learn all that you need to know when you want to appear in front of the Most Majestic Lord! If you say the supplications when you meet Him but you are thinking about other things then you have surely indicated your ignorance of Him. Then you should be ready for deprivation and condemnation.
Thus you should enter His Presence with the heart and the tongue and all the your parts and organs. When you are in the presence of Him who knows all secrets, your mind and heart should be present when you express these words and you should try that what you say be in line with what you do.
When you exalt Him it should be clear in your thoughts and appearance. It should show that nothing is greater that the Almighty God whom you exalted. Nothing else should be in your mind. When you praise him by saying "Praise be to God‟ you bear witness that praise belongs to Him and He is the most deserved to be praised.
You should try not to have anyone else praised in your mind who may have done you good in this world.When you glorify Him you should not think of glorifying anyone else. Do not let anyone else in your mind. When you exalt Him and recite the Ayat al-Kursi and “Say: He is Allah, the One and Only”1 you should acknowledge that you are confessing to Him and that He is your Lord and you are not concerned with this world.
You should know that you are His servant and are badly in need of Him. You should be so engaged in Him that your inner thoughts indicate it. When you bestow blessings on the Prophet (as), remember that they do not need your bestowal of blessings in your payers after realizing that the Almighty God and the angels bestow blessings upon them. However, it has been reported in the narrations that the gates to the acceptance of prayers and fulfillment of demands is bestowal of blessings upon them in supplications. Once the Almighty God begins to accept your bestowal of blessings upon them, He would be more Merciful and Kind than to not fufill the needs and important issues for which you prayed afterwards.
If you do as we recommended, then you can hope to be a servant who has recognized the rights of his master, confessed to Him, and you may attain His Pleasure and become prosperous in this world and the Hereafter Before Aamal salat ettiquette
The two units of prayer is found in the book of Abi Ali Hassan ibn Muhammad ibn Ismael ibn Muhammad ibn Ashnas Al-Bazzaz – may God have mercy on him. It has been narrated that our Master As-Sadiq Ja‟far ibn Muhammad (as) said, “Whoever says two units of prayer beneath the sky on the Arafa day before leaving the house and confesses to his sins shall attain the salvation which those who pray at Arafa attain and all his past and future sins shall be forgiven.
Another 12 Rakat Salat is reported with Hamd Ayatul kursi & Ikhlass in each rakat then recite some quran & prostrate &
Raise your hands and say the following dua,
“Glory be to Him who is adorned with Might and Prosperity! Glory be to Him who is Kind with Forebearnace! Glory be to Him who counts all things and is aware of all of them. Glory be to Him that glorifications belong to none but Him. Glory be to Lord of Honor and Power! Glory be to the Greatest Great! O‟ Lord! I ask You by the juncture of the Might of Your Throne. And I ask You by Your Grand Name and by the prayers that have been fulfilled. By the Light of Your Face to bestow blessings on Muhammad and his Progeny.”

The Prophet (peace be upon him andhis family) Dua on the Day of Arafa
