Hajj Series – Part 21

Going to Mina 🎪

⛅ When it has become very light, before the sun rises, he should go to Mina and hasten through Wadi Mahsar (which is a valley between Muzdalifah and Mina).

⚫ When he reaches Mina he should stone Jamarat al-‘Aqabah, which is the last one that is closest to Makkah, throwing seven pebbles⚫⚫⚫⚫⚫⚫⚫ one after another, each of which should be approximately the size of a fava bean, saying “Allaahu akbar” with each throw. (The Sunnah when stoning Jamarat al-‘Aqabah is to face the Jamarah with Makkah to one’s left and Mina to one one’s right). When he has finished this stoning, he should slaughter his sacrificial animal🐑🐪🐄, then shave his head or cut his hair if he is male; women should cut the length of a fingertip from their hair. This is the first stage☝🏻 of exiting ihraam, in which it becomes permissible to do everything except have intercourse with one’s wife.🌀 Then the pilgrim should go back to Makkah and do tawaaf and saa’i for Hajj.

✌🏻Then comes the second stage of exiting ihraam, after which everything becomes permissible which was forbidden whilst in ihraam. The Sunnah is to put on perfume when one wants to go to Makkah to do tawaaf after stoning the jamarat and shaving one’s head, because ‘Aa’ishah (may Allaah be pleased with her) said: “I used to apply perfume to the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) before he entered ihraam and when he exited ihraam, before he circumambulated the House.”

📚Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 1539; Muslim, 1189.
