  • Introduction

The three days after Yawm al-Nahr are known as Ayyam al-Tashreeq due to the fact that the early pilgrims would preserve the meat that was acquired from animal sacrifices through seasoning it with salt and letting it dry in the sun, to prevent it from going rotten.

Jamarat

  • Pelting must be performed after Zawwal (midday) on the 11th and before Fajr on the 12th.
  • After Zawwal, preferably before or after Asr when there should be less of a crowd, proceed to the Jamarat with about 30 stones.
  • You will need seven stones for each pillar but keep some spare stones with you, just in case you need them.
  • It is Sunnah to pelt Jamarah al-Ula (the small pillar) first, followed by Dua, then Jamarah al-Wusta (the middle pillar), followed by Dua and finally Jamarah al-Aqaba (the big pillar), with no Dua thereafter.
  • Dua should be made standing away from the crowd, facing the Qibla.

Things to Remember

There are various times of the day where pelting is more virtuous than other times. These times are as follows

  • Before Zawwal (midday) – Not allowed to pelt.
  • After Zawwal (the beginning time of Dhuhr Salah) until sunset – Sunnah. Try to perform Rami between these times, provided it isn’t too crowded.
  • Between sunset and Fajr Salah – Disliked (Makruh) for men*, but still valid and permissible for women, the elderly and the infirm.
