whos fasting with me??

Today is the day of Arafah! Jazakallah khayr to Hispanic Muslimah for the reminder and the hadiths. May Allah swt accept reward you ameen.

"The ninth day of Dhul-Hijjah (the 12th and final month of the Islamic calendar) is the day of 'Arafah. It is the day when pilgrims stand on the plain of 'Arafah to pray. On this day, Muslims all over the world who do not witness the annual hajj should spend the day in fasting, in preparation for the three days festivity following 'Eid ul-Adha (the celebration marking the end of the hajj commemorating the Prophet Ibrâhîm's willingness of sacrifice).

Abû Hafsah, may Allâh be pleased with him, reported that the Prophet, upon whom be peace, said:

"Fasting on the day of 'Arafah absolves the sins for two years: the previous year and the coming year, and fasting on 'ashûra, (the tenth day of Muharram) atones for the sins of previous years."

[Reported by all except al-Bukhârî and Tirmidhî]"
So whos with me?

May Allah swt forgive us all for our sins and accept our prayers and fasting as complete. AMEEN. Can I get an ameen?
