Salaam un alaikum,
On Friday this week will be the Yawmul Arafat. I recommend that you read more about it from various sites.
One such site is http://www.al-islam.org/index.php?sid=544016531&t=sub_pages&cat=214. It has links to various books and lectures on the topic. You can also get the aamaal that should be done on the day of Arafaat from here: http://www.duas.org/zilhajj/arafa.htm
May Allah SWT take us to another level in His proximity.
Don’t forget me in your duas!
