Dua on the day of Arafah
Expand
لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا اللهُ ، وَحْدَهُ لَا شَرِيكَ لَهُ ، لَهُ الْمُلْكُ وَلَهُ الْحَمْدُ ، وهُوَ عَلَى كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيرٌ
Translation
The best of supplications is the supplication on the day of AAarafah and the best which I and the Prophets before me have said (is):

“None has the right to be worshipped except Allah, alone, without partner. To Him belongs sovereignty and all praise and He is over all things omnipotent.”

Dua at the Jamarat
Expand
اللهُ أَكْبَرُ
Translation
Every time the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) threw a pebble at any of the three jamarat, he would say:

“Allah is the greatest.”

…on completion of the first jamarah, he advanced a little, stood facing the qiblah, raised his hands and supplicated. He also did this after the second jamarah but not the third.

Note: Jamarat are the three stoning (of the devil) areas at Mina during Hajj.
