Sohbah of Hajjah Ruqqaiyah Sultan
Dated 29 July 2020 / 08 Dhul Hijjah 1441
Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem,
Tommorrow is Arafah, the day of Arafah. To first day of Arafah, Prophet Sallallahu alaihiu wa sallam said that Allah rewards as you….. forgive your sins from the year passed and year coming, your, when you fast the day of Arafah. It is the holiest day of the year. If you are, one day on Arafah, if you are on Arafah you are Haji. No other days, if you go hundred times on Arafah, if it is not Arafah day, you won’t be Haji. It is the holiest day of the year. And Sub Haan Allah this year it was, Allah’s wisdom, Allah, Allah knows better what we did, what we are still doing, Astaghfirullah al azim. We have to say Astaghfirullah until we, all our life, until we die, that may be Allah forgives us, Insha Allah. And Sub Haan Allah only few people are tomorrow on, on Arafah, but we are, we pray that Allah rise us also with them.
There is “thousand (1000) Ikhlas sharif” to read tomorrow. You can read it “from morning till evening till Eid in morning”. Thousand (1000) Ikhlas sharif.
Hundred (100) “Astaghfirullah al azeem wa atubu ilaih” and
Hundred (100) “Allahummagfirlil haj wali min Astaghfirullahul haj”. It means that Allah forgive the Hajis and forgive the people who is asking forgiveness for Hajis. If you cannot do, you make “Hundred (100) more Astaghfirullah al azim wa atubu ilaih” with the intention that Allah join us with the Hajis on Arafah, asking forgiveness.
Hundred (100) “La ilaha illallah wah dahu la sharika lah lahul mulku wala ul hamd yuhi wa yumi’tu wala kulli shai in kadeer” this also hundred (100) times.
And….. also you can read “Salawatu sharifa”…..hundred(100) or as much if you have a time you can make it until thousand(1000) time “Allahumma salli ala Mohammadin wa a’la a’li Mohammadin wa sallim kama sallaita ala Ibrahim wa a’la a’li Ibrahim fil alamin hamidun majeed” this you read ten (10) times.
And you read, the rest you read hundred (100) times “salawatu sharif “Allahumma salli ala Mohammadin wa a’la a’li Mohammadin wa sallim”.
There is a special prayer for the day of Arafah….. some, but different, different tellings. Prophet Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam was telling once two (2) rakah, you can pray two (2) rakah with one Fatiha, three (3) ‘Fatiha’, three (3) ‘Ikhlas’, three (3)’Qul auzu bi rabbi falaq’, three (3) ‘Qul auzu bi rabbin naas’. Two rakah, ‘between Zohar and Asr’. And there is also another….. version that also to pray four (4) rakah, each rakah one(1) ‘Fatiha’, fifty (50) ‘Ikhlas sharif’ and intention of day of Arafah for….. for the day of Arafah also, you can pray this also.
And there is two (2) rakah, more two rakah at night, any night from this ten nights that Allah was swearing for them “walay ilayna ashr”, that you read in each rakah you can pray tonight, you can pray tomorrow night or only one night also, it is big rewards. One(1) ‘Fatiha’, one(1) ‘Ayatul kursi’, three (3)’Ikhlas’ and three (3)’Qul auzu bi rabbil falaq’, (3) ‘Qul auzu bi rabbin naas’. You read two rakah for this at night and after salam you pray for Allah for forgiveness and for whatever you ask for duniya and akhira, Insha Allah.
Eid morning, Insha Allah before, “after morning prayer….. we read three hundred (300) “Subhan Allah wabi hamdi Subhan Allah al azim” three hundred time and we gift it to all our Muslim dead, our all deads, who passed away from Muslims and Muslimah, Muslimin wa muslimat, for all of them as Eid gift for them.
