  • اللَّهُ أَكْبَرُ اللَّهُ أَكْبَرُ لَا إلَهَ إلَّا اللَّهُ وَاَللَّهُ أَكْبَرُ اللَّهُ أَكْبَرُ وَلِلَّهِ الْحَمْد

Arafat

It is Sunnah to perform Ghusl on the Day of Arafat. This can be done in Arafat before the Wuquf (standing) or it can be done in Mina before departing for Arafat.

  • Travelling to Arafat
  • Depart from Mina after sunrise, as this was the practice of Rasulullah ﷺ. The distance from Mina to Arafat is about 9.5 kilometres (6 miles).
  • Most pilgrims tend to reach Arafat before or after Dhuhr, although delays may occur due to traffic congestion.
  • Arrival in Arafat
  • For your Hajj to be valid, you must perform Wuquf al-Arafat in accordance with the Sunnah of the Prophet ﷺ i.e. spending any time between midday and the beginning of Fajr on the following day in Arafat.
  • During the course of the day, you should spend as much time in Dhikr and Ibadah as possible.
  • Dhuhr and Asr Salah in Arafat
  • Arrival in Arafat
  • After midday, if you haven’t already done so in Mina, perform Ghusl (shower).
  • You will then head towards Masjid al-Namirah, where you will combine the Dhuhr and Asr prayers in Qasr mode i.e. shortening them.
  • Before the Salah takes place in the mosque, there is a Khutbah (sermon). For those who manage to get a space in the Masjid, or are within hearing distance, listen to the Khutbah attentively.

The combined Salah is then performed as follows

  • There is one Adhan.
  • Iqama is made for Dhuhr.
  • Takbir is made for Dhuhr Fardh Salah and two Rakats are performed.
  • After the prayer is completed, while standing, recite Takbir al-Tashreeq.
  • Iqama is made for Asr.
  • Takbir is made for Asr Fardh Salah and two Rakats are performed.
  • After the prayer is completed, recite Takbir al-Tashreeq and Talbiyah.
  • No additional Nafl (optional) prayers are performed before or after these prayers.

After Salah, you will stay in Arafat until sunset. During your Wuquf (standing), spend your time

  • Reading the Quran.
  • Doing Dhikr.
  • Sending Salawat upon Rasulullah ﷺ.
  • Reciting Talbiyah.
  • Offering your supplications.
  • Wuquf al-Arafat
  • In the late afternoon, stand in the open and raise your hands in supplication to Allah, as Rasulullah ﷺ had done, facing the Kaaba.
  • It is recommended to do the Wuquf (standing) at the foot of Jabal al-Rahmah (the Mount of Mercy), although you can stand outside your tent if you please.
  • Leaving Arafat
  • Immediately after sunset, you will leave Arafat to make your way to Muzdalifah.
  • Before you leave for Muzdalifah, ensure you use the toilets and perform Wudhu in Arafat, as you will be performing Salah in Muzdalifah
  • It is Wajib (obligatory) to stay in Arafat until sunset
  • This journey can be a quick one or it can take some time, depending on traffic and your location in Arafat. Many pilgrims choose to journey to Muzdalifah by foot.
  • As you proceed to Muzdalifah, exercise patience and continue to recite Talbiyah and other prayers.

Muzdalifah

  • At Muzdalifah, you will stay under the night sky. There are no tents or other accommodation facilities here.
  • The boundaries for Muzdalifah are indicated by large purple sign posts.
  • If you get a chance after Salah, go for a walk around Muzdalifah. The multitudes of people within Muzdalifah is certainly an amazing sight.
  • Take great care in Muzdalifah. It’s a good idea to always carry a mobile phone and a torch (flashlight) with you.
  • Maghrib and Isha, in the form of Qasr, will be performed together at the time of Isha.

Pebbles

You need to collect a total of 49 pebbles to perform Rami over the next three days (It’s better to have more than to have less).

The breakdown is as follows

  • 7 for the 10th of Dhul Hijjah.
  • 21 for the 11th of Dhul Hijjah./li>
  • 21 for the 12th of Dhul Hijjah.

The following are some tips regarding pebbles

  • Walk to the foot of the nearby hills to find pebbles.
  • Use your torch (flashlight).
  • Pebbles should be about the size of a pea; anything beneath or exceeding this size is not desirable, although still accepted.
  • Use your torch (flashlight).
  • Collect the pebbles from a clean place.
  • Don’t collect pebbles lying around the bathroom facilities.
  • If there is no filth on the pebbles, assume they are clean and don’t need to be washed.
  • If the pebbles are visibly dirty, they should be washed.
  • You can help one another find pebbles; it doesn’t have to be an individual endeavour.
  • The Night

There are two things you can do during the night

  • Ibadah – Spending the night in worship is recommended and full of blessings.
  • Rest – Get some well-needed rest in preparation for the next three days of Hajj, as was the practice of Rasulullah ﷺ.

Fajr Salah & Wuquf

  • It is Sunnah to perform Fajr Salah at the earliest part of dawn whilst it is still dark.
  • It is also a Sunnah to perform Wuquf in Muzdalifah after Fajr Salah, even if it’s for a moment.
  • Dua should be made in the same manner as Arafat i.e. standing while facing the Qibla.

Leaving for Mina

  • Ensure you leave soon after you have done Wuquf and made your supplications.
