Wuquf 
in Arafat
byAbu Haneef On the 9
th
of 
Zul Hijjah
,
Wuquf 
in Arafat is performed from
Zuhr
to sunset.The main action in
Wuquf 
is not to pray lots of 
Nafls
but to stand facing the
Haram
asking Allah (swt) for forgiveness while recognizing Him as our Lord.The Prophet said, "
Al Hajju Arafah
," meaning that standing in
Arafat
is the
Hajj
.Why?To answer this, we must first understand the
first
Wuquf 
that all of usperformed in front of Allah (swt).

O Prophet, remind mankind about the incident
when your Rabb brought intoexistence the offspring from the loins of Adam and his descendants (
virtually each
 
single individual of mankind
) and made them testify about themselves.
Allah
 
asked them
: “Am I not your Rabb?” They all replied: “Yes! We bear witness thatYou are.” 
This We did
, less you mankind should say on the Day of Resurrection: “We were not aware of this fact that
You are our Rabb and that there will be aDay of Judgment
.” 
[7:172 Translation of meaning]
 This happened when Allah
 
(swt) gathered us all in one large assembly before thebirth of any of us.It is also very important to note that this event took place when Man was madeAllah’s vicegerent (
khalifa
) on this earth.At that time, Allah (swt) asked the rhetorical question "Am I not your Rabb?" Byreplying “Yes”, we have established a covenant with Allah (swt) to accept onlyHim as our Lord.In other words, He made sure that as
Khalifa
we don’t forget the real owner, andact as if we are the owners.Satan, the accursed, also resolved that he would persuade Man to take his owndesires as his god or have Man worship someone other than Allah (swt).Herein lies the significance of Hajj.
Wuquf 
in Arafat is really the place where wego through the process of once again recognizing our Lord. It is no coincidencethat
Arafat 
means recognition
. This is the real significance of Hajj.We assess our past. We ask for His forgiveness, and resolve to worship only Allah(swt), to stop accepting others as our Lord, and if necessary, to take action tochange those who deny Allah (swt) and worship others or enforce other unjustsystems.
