Day 5 Start

  • Summary
  • Stay at Mina and throw pebbles at all three Jimar.
  • Return the same day to Makkah
  • Perform Tawaf Ka’bah.
  • Drink water of Zamzam.
  • Introduction
  • On this day, you do exactly the same as the previous day i.e. pelt all three Jamarat.
  • Pelting must be performed after Zawwal (midday) on the 12th and before Fajr on the 13th
  • Ensure any remaining rites you haven’t yet performed are completed before sunset on this day or a penalty will be necessary for each one missed.
  • If you want to leave for Makkah after you have performed Rami, you should do so before sunset.
  • If you’re still within the boundaries of Mina by the start of Fajr Salah on the 13th, it becomes Wajib (obligatory) to perform Rami on this day.

Jamarat

  • Pelting must be performed after Zawwal (midday) on the 12th and before Fajr on the 13th.
  • 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.

Day 5 End

If you have performed the below activities at the end of the day than your Hajj day 5 is completed.

  • Stay at Mina and throw pebbles at all three Jimar.
  • Return the same day to Makkah
  • Perform Tawaf Ka’bah.
  • Drink water of Zamzam.

On the way back to Makkah, it is a Sunnah to stop in an area called Wadi al-Muhassab as was the practice of Rasulullah ﷺ

It’s a good idea to travel to Makkah by foot since vehicular transport is quite chaotic on this day.
