Prayer for the Hajj – Day Two

Today, the second day of the three day Hajj, is the most important day. It is the day known as Wuqoof, or the day of “standing at Arafat.”
Muslim scholars say that this is the “day the religion of Islam was perfected.” The Hajj only becomes valid when the day of Wuqoof is observed, as it is on this day Muslims believe their major and minor sins are forgiven.
If they miss this day, their pilgrimage is pointless.

Today, as they stand or sit near Mount Arafat, they will cry out to Allah for mercy and forgiveness. Muslims believe that as they finish this day they are cleansed of sin, which also brings them freedom from shame.

At sunset, a cannon sounds and pilgrims leave Mount Arafat and head to Muzdalifah, where they sleep or stay up all night under the stars.
  • Pray for  Muslim pilgrims on this 2nd day of Hajj. Pray that they will come to know the truth of Jesus, the “Lamb of God, who takes away the sins of the world”
  • Pray for the many who will stay awake all night, and those sleeping under the stars, that they will have dreams and vision of the living Christ, that will cause them to seek the truth of the Gospel that alone brings life, hope and forgiveness.

John 1 vs 29: “The next day John saw Jesus coming towards him and said, ‘Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!”
