السلام عليكم و رحمة الله و بركاته Mufti Sahab, please let me know the Niyat of fasting on Youm E Arfa ( 9 zilhaj) in Arabic if possible. Jazak Allah khair.

الجواب حامداومصليا

The Fast of Arafah is a Nafl Fast. Therefore, you may make a general intention of observing the Fast of Arafah in any language. If you specifically wish to make intention in Arabic then you may say the following:

نويت صوم عرفة

And Allah knows best.
