Hazrat Musa (A.S), History & Biography

On the instruction of Hadhrat Shuayb (alayhis salaam), his daughter went to call Hadhrat Musaa (alayhis salaam). When she reached the place where the well was, she found him sitting under the same tree where he had earlier rested. Describing the scene, the Qur’aan says: “Then one of the two daughters (of Shuayb- alayhis salaam) came walking bashfully. She said: ‘My father calls you so that he may remunerate you for having watered our goats.”

The Rami of the 13th Zilhijja stands obligatory only when the dawn of the 13th appears in Mina. In this case as well, if a person abandoned the Rami of the 13th Zilhijja, a Dam would be obligatory (Zubda).

The 2nd Wajib of 10th ZilHijja

Fiqh, Hajj - Merits and Precepts

The Rami At Jamrat-Ul-Aqaba
Today on reaching Mina, the first thing to do is the Rami at Jamarat-ul-Aqaba which is Wajib on this very day. It may please be noted that there are three such places in Mina which are called as Jamarat. Seven pebbles are pelted on each of these Jamarat. The first Jamra is near the mosque of Mina i.e. Masjid-e-Khaif. It is called Jamrat-ul-‘Ola. The 2nd Jamra is next to the first and is called Jamrat-ul-Aqaba is situated at the end of Mina. Today on the 10th Zilhijja, you are to perform Rami with seven pebbles on Jamrat-ul-Aqaba only. Rami literally means pelting of stones or pebbles. This Rami is observed as a memorial of that approved action of Hazrat Ibrahim (Abraham) which he did at the time he took his son Hazrat Isma’il (Ishamel) for offering him as sacrifice and the satan tried to mislead him. At that time Hazrat Ibrahim repelled the satan by throwing pebbles at him.

A short while before the sunrise which may be equivalent to the time sufficing two Rak’ats of prayers, you are to proceed to Mina from Muzdalifa. Delaying your proceeding is contrary to Sunnat (Hayat-ul-Qulob). It is also a Sunnat to collect from Muzdalifa seven pebbles equal to a big gram or a date-stone in size for the purpose of Rami at Jamarat-ul-Aqaba.

Acts that are Makruh in Salaat

Bahishti Zewar, Fiqh, Part 2-Salat and its virtues

1. Makruh is that act with which salaat does not break
but the reward diminishes and it is sinful.

2. It is makruh to play with one’s clothing, body,
jewellery, or to remove pebbles. However, if one cannot make sajdah
because of the pebbles, he could move them once or twice with his hands.

3. It is makruh to do the following in salaat: to
crack one’s fingers, to rest one’s hands on one’s hips, to turn one’s head and
look to the left or right. However, if one looks at something by glancing
sideways without turning one’s head, then this is not makruh. However, to
do this without any real need is also not good.
