Hajj (2)


The journey of the pilgrim starts from Mecca. Thulhijjah 8th , the day of irrigation, the pilgrim comes to Mecca and stays the night. At the dawn of Thulhijjah 9th, he moves to mount Arafa. Making supplication and duaa, combining the prayers of duhur and assar in advance and continuing to ask The Almighty what he wishes or wants. Before sunset, he must move from mount Arafa to Muzdalifa, another rite area where he combines Ishaa and Magrib prayers together and continues his supplication. Then he collects stones to be thrown at Satan later.

 Thulhijjah 10th  at dawn, he continues  his journey to Mena where he performs the rest of the rites. This is the day of Eid Aladha, or the big feast. The pilgrim can slaughter his sacrifice and cut or shorten his hair. He can also go to  throw the stones at Satan. After this, he can take off his Ihram, but he is not allowed to touch his wife (have sexual intercourse)  or go hunting. After Ifadah Tawaf, the hajji can lie with his woman and go hunting if he wishes. On the third day at Mena, the pilgrim can make the goodbye Tawaf and go home. Hasty pilgrims can stay two days in Mena and perform the goodbye Tawaf and go back home.  Hajj is over. The pilgrim returns from his hajj clean with no sins at all.

  • Tumhara merhbani White Knight! I really appreciate your nice comment. Thank you!

  • that was a great summarized explanation 

  • Sama sama Peppo! After I pray Assar Prayer, I am intending to write about Irrigation day. Thanks again!

  • @Misaikh Ameeen ya rabbal alamiiin.
    @Dara thank you, sir. I'll take a look^^
  • Terima iasih untuk anda Peppo dan untuk bapak Mishaikh. Seperti katanya, ini descrpsi singkat. You can see my previous blog about hajj in 2014. I talked about the different rites of hajj in details besides, thanks to Mr. Mishaikh, he is ready to answer the different questions by the readers. Our brother, Mr. Mohammed from Jordan will also give his share in replying. Thanks Peppo for your concern.

  • Peppo May Allah take you there. Ameen.

  • Dear Misaikh, Sir

    Mashaa Allah, What a wonderful experiences you shared here. It's truly fascinating to know for someone who eager to do the same. I always wonder if there many lessons behind the practicing of Hajj -for example wuquf in Arafa is resemblance of gathering people in yauml mahsyar- and you already told me one of it. I wish I could know more but I am sure one could gasp it all after experience it for real.

    Thank you!

  • @Peppo

    Hajj is completed in 5 days starting from 8th Zilhajj.

    So in writing it seems short, because Dara has described every thing in brief.

    My Allah bless every Muslim to perform Hajj.  It is really worth experiencing.  

    Every Hajji according to his monetary status can resume the journey like I did.

    I stayed in famous clock tower near Haram.  Then we moved to Madina and stayed in 3/4 star hotel.

    Then we moved to Mina (99 person tent), 

    Then Aziia (6 person sharing room)

    Muzdalfa.........................here billionaire and the poor are equal they have to stay on road or on hills.  No difference there between human.  All are equal. I was lying on the road on a sheet of cloth, and there were garbage all around me.  This is the way Allah asks to obey in the way He commands. 

  • Is that all? I think it could be longer, lol xD 

    anyway thanks for sharing! this is the shortest version of Hajj ritual, in real event looks more complicated because it involved many people, rites and places. 

    Wish someday me and my family could experience this^^

  • Vanakkam Kal! Ningal ku walary nanndree! Your comments are always meaningful. Thanks for your nice feelings.
