30. Supplication in ‘Arafat

عَنِ الرِّضَا (ع) قَالَ: كَانَ أَبُو جَعْفَرَ (ع) يَقُولُ: مَا مِنْ بِرٍّ وَ لاَ فَاجِرٍ يَقِفُ بِجِبَالِ عَرَفَاتٍ فَيَدْعُو اللٌّهَ إِلاَّ اسْتِجَابَ اللٌّهُ لَهُ. أَمَّا الْبِرُّ فَفِي حَوَائِجِ الدُّنْيَا وَ الأَخِرَةِ وَ أَمَّا الْفَاجِرُ فَفِي أَمْرِ الدُّنْيَا.

It has been narrated from al-Ridha [Imam ‘Ali Ibn Musa] (peace be upon him): “Surely my father, Abu Ja’far (peace be upon him) used to say, ‘There is not a single righteous person or sinner who makes a sojourn at the Mountains of ‘Arafat and calls upon Allah there, except that Allah answers his call.  For a righteous person (his call is answered) in regards to the needs and necessities of the life of this temporal world and the next life; while a sinner (is answered) in regards to the affairs of the temporal world (only).”
