Question

You say in your Fatwa: 'Arafah fast is not
linked to a place but time. Could you kindly
explain? Since Prophet Muhammad said
fast on the day of 'Arafah, shouldn't it be
both time linked and place linked? How can
you separate both? As Prophet does not
give any indication of separation.

Fatwa:
All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the
Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of
worship except Allah, and that Muhammad
is His Slave and Messenger.

Our statement that the Fasting of the day of
'Arafah is linked to the time and not the
place means that the day of 'Arafah may
differ from one place to another. The
pilgrims may stand on the Mount of 'Arafah
on Friday for instance, but this day may not
be 'Arafah day for other countries, rather
'Arafah for them could be on Saturday
because the month in Makkah started before
it started in those countries. So if they fasted
on Friday, they would not really have fasted
the day of 'Arafah, rather the Sunnah in their
regard in to fast on Saturday. Therefore,
what should be taken into account is the
time in each country and not the place which
is called 'Arafah, i.e. not the time of the
country where the pilgrims stand on the
Mount of 'Arafah.

Allah Knows best.
