What is meant by Yaum-e-Arafat and what is done on that day?

The ninth day of Dhul-Hijjah is the Day of Arafah, since it is on this day the pilgrims gather at the mountain plain of Arafah, praying and supplicating to their Lord. In fact, one hadith says that ‘Hajj is Arafah' (Abu Dawud). This means Arafah is the sum and substance of Hajj. 

The day of Arafah is also significant because this amazing ayah was revealed on this day:

"This day I have perfected for you your religion and completed My favour upon you and have approved for you Islam as religion." (Surah al Maa'idah 5:3)
