    Hajj - Journey of a lifetime


    HAJ is performed from the 8-13 of Dhul-Hijjah. The Manasik (rites) of Haj At-Tamattu' are described below, and has been summarized on the right. Early on the morning of 8th Dhul Hijjah, the Day of Tarwiyah, the pilgrim assumes Ihram for Haj as he did for Umrah, but says "Labbayk Allahumma Hajjan" and begins reciting the Talbiyyah. All the rules of Ihram which applied to Umrah also hold for Haj. He then proceeds to Mina where he spends the day in worship and performs Dhuhr, Asr, Maghrib and Isha shortened but not joined. He spends the night there.

    After Fajr on 9th Dhul Hijjah, the Day of Arafah, he leaves for `Arafah. At the time of Dhuhr he prays Dhuhr and `Asr shortened and combined with one Adhan and two Iqamah. He remains there until Maghrib, standing with hands raised in supplication anywhere within the boundaries of Arafah.
    After sunset he proceeds to Muzdalifah where he performs Maghrib and Isha shortened and combined with one Adhan and two Iqamah. He then goes to sleep until Fajr. After performing Fajr at its earliest time on 10th Dhul Hijjah, the Day of Sacrifice, he leaves Muzdalifah before sunrise and returns to Mina. He continues reciting the Talbiyah.

    He collects seven pebbles and does stoning of the Big Jamarah some time between sunrise and night, standing with Makkah to his left and Mina to his right. He says "Allahu Akbar" with each stone throw. The slaughter must be done and then he may partially come out of the state of Ihram by shaving the head or cutting the hair for men and trimming the hair for women.

    Perform Tawaf Al-Ifadah walking normally, then do Sa`ee. One is now completely out of Ihram. On the 11th-13th Dhul Hijjah, the Days of Tashreeq, one stays in Mina and performs stoning of the three Jamarat each day between Zawal (sun is at its peak) and night � 21 pebbles must be collected for this. The smallest Jamarah is stoned first, then the medium, then the big one. After stoning at the first two, one may face the Qiblah and supplicate to Allah. On the 13th after stoning the Jamarat one leaves Mina.

    One must perform the Farewell Tawaf prior to leaving Makkah. This completes the Manasik of Haj. May Allah grant all pilgrims Haj Mabroor (an accepted Haj, the reward of which is nothing but Jannah).
