Fasting on the Day Arafah--before Eid ul-adha

Today is the day of Arafah, Dhulhijjah (last month in Islamic calender) 9th 1432 H just one day before Eid ul-adha. All the people who attend Hajj pilgrim are gather on the plain of Arafah, they will spend a whole day to pray. For those who do not participate hajj pilgrim are suggested to do this fasting. Because this fasting can wipe sins of both last year or next year. Abu 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 Ashura atones for the sins of the previous years." [reported by all except Al bukhari and Tirmidhi]

What s great advantage of today's fasting, but today I can't attend this fasting (sigh....)
Anyway, just like what I wrote in the beginning, about Eid ul-adha. Tomorrow (Dhulhijjah 10th) will be a festivity the end of Hajj and memorizing day of Prophet Ibrahim sacrifice willingness. So, long ago our prophet Ibrahim was examined by Alloh (God). Alloh ordered him to sacrifice Prophet Ismail ( his son), and after made a hard decision and got support from prophet Ismail also, he was going to do that task. And before he did it, God sent an angel to replace prophet Ismail with a ram. Nowadays, we are going to memorize those event, which gives us a lot of example of strong believe and faith in Alloh. We are also suggested to sacrifice cattle with sincere and share the meat to the pauper.
So, be prepared everybody for tomorrow celebration. May Alloh wipe all of our sins, and accept our sacrifice. Amiin...

happy fasting to all of you,..and of course for you dear :*
