Abu Qatadah narrated that :
the Prophet (ﷺ) said: “Fast the Day of Arafah, for indeed I anticipate that Allah will forgive (the sins) of the year after it, and the year before it.”

The ninth day of Dhu’l-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 can 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 Ibrahim’s  (peace be upon him) willingness of sacrifice).
