9 th day arafah

9th Day - Arafah

The time of Arafah starts after Dhuhr/Asr

Start of 10 th of dhul hijjah sunset

Start of 10th of Dhul-Hijjah (Sunset):

  • Going to Muzdalifah

  • Leave Arafat for Muzdalifah soon after sunset.

  • Perform the Maghrib and the Isha prayer combined (Isha is shortened to two Rak’ahs).

  • Try to collect 70 pebbles to use for stoning the Jamarat. At a minimum, collect 7 pebbles.

  • Stay overnight and perform the Fajr Prayer.

10 th dhul hijjah at night muzdalifah

10th Dhul-Hijjah (at night) - Muzdalifah

Pray Maghrib/Isha when you arrive at Muzdalifah

Muzdalifah is a desert location approximately midway between Mina and Arafah. The pilgrim spends the night of the 10th of Dhul-Hijjah here.

Toilets and ablution facilities are available. Naturally, they are very crowded at all times. The pilgrims must be patient, courteous, and understanding to other fellow pilgrims.

Common mistakes mina arafah muzdalifah

  • Do not waste your Hajj time in vain chatting.

  • Do not push anyone when you are in a crowd.

  • Women should avoid getting into a crushing crowd, like in Masjid Namirah.

  • Many people do not confirm if where they are located is inside or outside the borders of the holy sites. Confirm.

  • Spending the 8th day in Mina is the Sunnah of Rasul Allah (sallahu 'alaihi wa salaam). Many people skip this and go to Arafah.

  • Only in Arafah and Muzdalifah do you shorten and combine prayers. In Mina only shorten your prayers, but pray them at the correct time.

  • Do not reserve a place that is more than you need. Many people are looking for places to sit down and sleep.

  • You do not have to go to the Mt. Of Mercy (Mt. Rahmah) in Arafah. Many people hurt themselves and others to be there even though it is not a wajib thing to do.

  • Mt. Rahmah is not a holy mountain. Do not wipe its sand and rocks for barakah.

  • You do not have to pray Dhuhr and Asr on Arafah day in the Masjid of Arafah (Masjid Namirah). You may pray in your tent with your group.

  • Do not leave Arafah before Maghrib time.

  • Do not face Mt.Rahmah on Arafah day when you make Du’a. You should face the Qiblah.

  • You should not treat your time in Arafah like any other day. You should realize the significance and pray to Allah in humility.

  • At Maghrib time in Arafah, do not pray Maghrib and Isha’ until you reach Muzdalifah, even it you reach there at 11:00 at night. However, if you see half the night approaching, pray where you are on the road.

  • Make sure you are in Muzdalifah before you stop and rest. Many people think they are in Muzdalifah but they are not. Look for the border signs. If you have not seen one, chances are you are still not in Muzdalifah even if you see others sleeping on the road.

  • After praying Maghrib and Isha in Muzdalifah, go to sleep immediately, this is what Rasul Allah (sallahu 'alaihi wa salaam)did.

  • Through all of this, continue doing your Talbiyah.

Common Mistakes- Mina- Arafah - Muzdalifah

Sunrise on the 10 th of dhul hijjah

Sunrise on the 10th of Dhul-Hijjah:

10 th mina

10th - Mina

On this day you have 4 missions:

Mission 1: Stone the large Jamarat

Mission 2: Slaughter the Hady

Mission 3: Shave/Trim your hair

Mission 4: Tawaf Al-Ifaadah

Mission 1 stone the big jamaraat

Mission 1 – Stone the big Jamaraat

Common mistakes jamaraat

Common Mistakes [Jamaraat]

  • The Jamaraat are not Devils, and Shaytaan is not tied up for the stoning of himself. Hajjis that hold this misconception end up cursing, swearing, throwing sandals, etc. It is a commandment from Allah to glorify Allah by saying ‘Allahu Akbar’ with each pebble.

  • You do not have to wash your stones.

  • Do not throw sandals or wood or big rocks. This is all against the Sunnah.

  • Do not stone the Jamaraat before it is time.

  • Throw seven pebbles, not more or less.

  • Throw the pebbles separately.

  • Throw the pebbles from small to medium to large. Not the other way.

  • Say Allahu Akbar with each pebble. Do not say Bismillaah.

  • Do not hurt/shove when at the Jamaraat.

  • If someone is throwing on your behalf, you must be unable to throw yourself.

  • If someone is throwing on your behalf, you do not have to collect the stones yourself and hand the stones to that thrower.

Mission 2 slaughter the hady

Mission 2 – Slaughter the Hady

  • Most people will not slaughter the hady by themselves. Instead, when you first arrive in Madinah/Makkah, go to the bank & purchase a coupon for someone to slaughter the hady on your behalf.

Mission 3 shave trim hair

Mission 3 – Shave/Trim Hair

  • Shave your complete head, do not leave parts unshaved.

  • If you trim, take from all sides of your head.

  • Do not take off your Ihraam until you have shaved or trimmed. You are still in Ihraam until you do so.

  • Do not shave your beard.

Mission 4 tawaf al ifaadah

Mission 4 – Tawaf al Ifaadah

  • You can do this tawaf anytime from the 10th through the 13th of Dhul-Hijjah: you’re not required to do it on the 10th

  • After tawaf al ifaadah, you make sa’ee between Safa and Marwah

  • The ground floor will most likely be busy.

  • You can do Tawaf on the second floor or the roof.

Sa ee between safa and marwah

Sa’ee between Safa and Marwah

  • If you are tired after performing tawaf al ifaadah, you don't have to proceed to perform the sa'ee immediately. You can rest and perform the sa'ee later.

  • Sa'ee consists of 7 rounds of walking between As-Safa and Al-Marwah. One round is completed when you begin from As-Safa and end at Al-Marwah. The return from Al-Marwah to Al-Safa completes the second round and so on.

  • Men should jog between the two green lights (located on the right side of the walls nearer to As-Safa). Women should not run.

  • Wudu is not required for sa'ee. It is, however, preferable to be in wudu as you may have to interrupt your sa'ee to join the congregational prayer.

  • Sa'ee must be interrupted for the congregational prayer. After the end of the prayer, you must start your sa'ee from the place where you stopped.

  • Do not engage in idle chat.
