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.

  • long journey but Hajj is a journey that every Muslim with the means to, must make before they die if possible.

    My comment on this point (The pilgrim returns from his hajj clean with no SINS AT ALL) 

    The majority of scholars that Hajj expiate minor sins, and the a major sin need separate repentance. 

    Thank you
