Fiqh, Hajj - Merits and Precepts / Saturday, November 7th, 2009

Out of Wajibat of Hajj now there remained only a few practices. You are to stay at Mina for to or three days and to perform Rami on all the three Jamarat. To spend the nights of these days as well in Mina is Sunnat-e-Mu’akkada while according to some others it is Wajib. It is forbidden to spend the nights anywhere out-side Mina whether in Makkah or anywhere else (Irshad-us-Sari).

You are allowed to accomplish the offering of sacrifice and Tawaf-e-Ziyarat on 11th Zilhijja, if not already done on the 10th due to some reason. It is better to be free from it before Zuhr prayers. After midday and Zuhr prayers you should proceed for the purpose of Rami on all the three Jamarat, The Mustahab time for today’s Rami is from after the moon to sunset. After sunset is stands Makroh, but if it is performed before the rising of Fajr on the 12th Zilhijja, it stands accomplished without falling under the obligation of any Dam. In case the Fajr has already expired. Its Qadha has now become obligatory and in expiation a Dam has also stood Wajib. Now on the 12th Zilhijja you are to perform a Rami for his particular day and a further Rami as a Qadha of the Rami missed on the 11th. At the same time you are to offer a Dam for your missing the Rami on the 11th Zilhijja. To day the Rami of the 11th Zilhijja is to be so arranged that first you perform Rami on the first Jamra with seven pebbles as you have already performed on the 10th Zilhijja at Jamrat-ul-Aqaba. On being free from this Rami you should move aside from the crowd and should pray to Allah with raised hands and with your face towards Ka’ba. This invocation should last at least as long as it becomes equal to the recitation of 20 verses of the Holy Quran. During this period you are to remain busy in Takbir, Tahlil, Istighfar and Darod. You may pray to Allah for your friends and Muslims in general as this is also a place of approbation of prayers (Zubda).

Thereafter you are to reach Jamrat-ul-Wusta where you are to throw the seven pebbles at the bottom of the Jamra in the same way as you have already done. This time as well you are to move aside from the gathering and remain busy in Istighfar and invocations with your face towards Ka’ba. You are then to reach Jamarat-ul-Aqaba and here as well you are to perform Rami with seven pebbles as before. Here you should not stay for invocation as it is not proved by Sunnat. For today, this was all which you have since accomplished. The rest of the time should be spent in Mina at your own place while remaining busy with invocations, recital of the Holy Quran and pronouncing the name of Allah. This time should not be wasted in useless engagements or carelessness.
