Day of Arafa’h - 9th Zilhajj - Aamaal
The supplication of ‘Arafa by Imam al-Husayn (a) (Arabic: دعاء الإمام الحسين يوم عرفة) is one of Shi’a supplications which was composed and recited by Imam al-Husayn (a) on the Day of ‘Arafa in the desert of ‘Arafat. The du’a is usually recited by Shi’a on the same day.
This supplication contains some of the highest theological and spiritual teachings. Considering its valuable content, Shi’a scholars and narrators deem the supplication as being reported from Imam al-Husayn (a); however, there is a disagreement among scholars regarding its ending part and some have attributed that part to some Sufi figures.
Because of its importance and significant position among Shi’a, some scholars have written translations and expositions for it.
