Day of 'Arafah - 9th Zilhajjah - Aa’maal
The day of Arafah is one of the most sacred days of the Islamic Calendar. On this day Allah invites his servants towards his worship and obedience, and spreads his bounties and blessings. Imam Zaynul Abidin (as) says about this great day: "O God, this is the day of Arafah a day which you have made noble, given honor and magnified within it. You have spread your mercy, showed kindness through your pardon, made plentiful your giving and by it you have been gracious towards your servants." (Sahifa as-Sajjadiyyah, Du'a no. 47)
It is also narrated that once Imam saw a man begging from people on the day of Arafah. & said "Woe unto you that on a day like this you are asking from other than God. This is a day when the mercy and grace of Allah reaches (even) the fetus in the womb."

O Allah! O the Most Generous who gives more than all the givers! O the Best (eternally) Besought of all those who are beseeched! O the Most Merciful of all the merciful! O Allah send blessing on Muhammad and on his children in the earlier times, and send blessings on Muhammad and on his children in the later times, send blessings on Muhammad and on his children, (in the midst of those) living in a satisfying state of the highest degree, send blessings on Muhammad and on his children in the midst of the Messengers.
O Allah give to Muhammad and his children (all) rights of being “the means of approach” (unto Thee), and abundant merits, distinctions, high ranks, and most important privileges.
O Allah I have accepted the “truth of Muhammad” (Allah’s blessings be on him and on his children), though I have not met him, therefore let it not be that I am deprived of his vision on the Day of Judgment, and let my life (in the Hereafter be spent in his company, make me follow his creed,
let me quench my thirst from his cistern (Kawthar), thoroughly, in plenty, gliding the wholesome water pleasantly down the throat, never ever to be thirsty again,
Verily, Thou art able to do all things. O Allah I have accepted the “truth of Muhammad” (Allah’s blessings on him and on his children), though I have not met him, therefore, let me remain aware of his true aspects in the Paradise. O Allah convey to Muhammad (Allah’s blessings be on him and on his children) my much compliments and salutations.

O Allah, (please) do not deprive me of the good that You have because of the evil that I have.
If You do not have mercy upon me due to my fatigue an tiredness, (please) then do not deprive me of the reward of those whom are afflicted with misfortunes.
