Hadeeth on the Rewards of fasting on the Day of 'Arafah
It was reported from Abu Qataadah that the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) was asked about fasting on the Day of 'Arafah (9 Zil Hijjah). He said, "It atones for the sins of the previous year and of the coming year." (Hadith-Muslim)
Prophet of Allah (pbuh) was asked, what is this sacrifice?" He said: "It is the way of your forefather Ibrahim (AS) ." They asked: “What (reward) is for us therein?" He replied: "There is a reward for every hair (i.e. the reward for meat and useful parts of the animal's body will be very lofty in merit" They asked: "For the wool, Ya Rasulullah?" He replied: "There is one reward for every strand of wool." (Hadith: Ahmed, Ibn Majah)
