Hajj Guide: Days of Tashreeq

  1. Hajj is one of the five pillars of Islam. It is obligatory for all able-bodied Muslims who can afford it, at least once in their lifetime.

Hajj is a spiritual experience for Muslims, which involves undertaking a set of rituals performed by Prophet Mohammed PBUH centuries ago. It takes place during the first ten days of Dhu’al-Hijjah, the final month of the Islamic calendar.

Hajj lasts four to six days depending on the pilgrim’s speed. This year, Saudi Arabia announced that the first day of Eid Al Adha corresponds to June 16, 2024. This means that Hajj rituals will start on June 14.

In this regard, Leaders MENA Magazine offers a detailed guide to Hajj rituals day by day. The tenth step is performed on days of Tashreeq.

Step 10: Throwing Jamaraat

On the Days of Tashreeq, pilgrims begin throwing the three jamaraat (Rami). They start after the noon of the 11th day of Dhu’al-Hijjah, and extend until the evening of the 13th day of Dhu’al-Hijjah.

Pilgrims start with pelting Jamarah al-Ula (the small pillar) with 7 pebbles. Then they recite supplications and Du’aa. After that, they stone Jamarah al-Wusta (the middle pillar) with 7 pebbles, followed by supplication. Finally, they stone Jamarah al-Aqaba (the big pillar) with 7 pebbles with no supplication thereafter.

If someone is not able to throw jamaraat, they may delegate someone else to throw on their behalf.

On the 12th day of Dhu’al-Hijjah, pilgrims stone the three jamaraat after noon. If pilgrims want to hasten and leave Mina, they must do that before sunset. If they don’t leave before sunset, pilgrims must stay the night at Mina.

However, if pilgrims throw jamaraat and get on the bus to leave Mina and the sun sets while they are on the bus, they do not have to spend the night there.

If pilgrims are still in Mina by the start of Fajr prayers of the 13th day of Dhu’al-Hijjah, it becomes obligatory to pelt the three jamaraat.
