Today marks the Day of Arafat where millions of Hajj pilgrims have left the city of Makkah to go to Mount Arafah.
According to ancient texts, Arafah is were Adam came down from Heaven with Eve, and he repented to the Lord. For more information check out Dr Shariati’s book here.
On this day it is highly recomended to recite Imam Hussain’s dua for the Day of A’rafah. This is an absolutely stunning and powerful Du’a. I read somewhere, “Everybody knows the Hussain in Karbala, but do people know the Hussain who poured his soul to the Lord on the Day of Arafah?”
The following are beautiful extracts from the Dua of Arafah found on Twitter. – Spirituality on the internet: my kind of life

O'My God I am needy despite my richness.
O'My God I am ignorant despite my knowledge. #DuaArafah

You are my cave of refuge when the roads for all their amplitude constrict me and the lands for all it's breadth is narrow for me #DuaArafat
