Abu Dhabi: The Arafat Day sermon will be translated into ten languages for broadcast on two platforms, said the chairman of the General Affairs of the Grand Mosque and the Prophet’s Mosque Sheikh Dr. Abdul Rahman bin Abdulaziz Al Sudais. The sermon last year was translated into five languages. Dr. Al Sudais said the sermon of the Arafat Day for this year will be in English, Malay, Urdu, Persian, French, Mandarin, Turkish, Russian, Hawsawi and Bengali.

Arafat Day marks the second day of Hajj

The occasion also marks the day when a verse of the Quran revealed that Islam was perfected, and when Allah’s blessings were completed.

Mount Arafat is the site where Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) gave his farewell sermon. Arafat day occurs the day before the start of Eid Al Adha.

Arafat day falls on the ninth day of Dhu Al Hijja according to the ‘hijri’ calendar. It occurs around over two months after Ramadan, which was observed in June earlier this year.
