“1. ‘Ā’ishah radiyallāhu anhā reports that Rasūlullāh sallallāhu alayhi wasallam said, ” There is no day in which Allāh sets free more souls from the fire of hell than on the day of ‘Arafah. And on that day Allāh draws near to the Earth and by way of exhibiting His Pride remarks to the angels, ‘What is the desire of these (servants of mine)?’” (Muslim)  

2. Talhah radiyallāhu ‘anhu reports that Rasūlullāh sallallāhu alayhi wasallam said, “Apart from the day of the Battle of Badr, there is no day on which the Shaytān is seen to be more humiliated, more rejected, more depressed and more infuriated than on the day of ‘Arafah, and indeed all this is only because of beholding the abundance of descending mercy (on the day) and Allāh’s forgiveness of the great sins of the servants.” (Mishkāt)  

3. Abū Qatādah Al-Ansārī radiyallāhu ‘anhu narrated that Rasūlullāh sallallāhu alayhi wasallam was asked about the fast on the day of ‘Arafah. He said, “It compensates for the (minor) sins of the past and the coming year.” (Muslim, At-Tirmidhī, Ibn Mājah)
