  • Staying Overnight At Minaa:

117. Then he returns to Minaa and remains there for the days of Tashreeq and their nights.

118. And he stones the three Jamaraat with seven small stones in each of those days, after noon, as has preceded concerning the stoning on the Day of Sacrifice.

119. He begins with the first Jamrah, which is the nearest to Masjid – al-Khaif, and after stoning it he moves onward and stands facing the Qiblah for a long while making du’aa while raising his hands. (100)

120. Then he comes to the second Jamrah and stones it in the same way, then he moves to the left and stands for a long while facing the Qiblah making du’aa while raising his hands. (101)

121. The he comes to the third Jamrah and it is Jamrat al-Aqabah – and he stones it in the same way – standing so that Ka’bah is to his left and Minaa to his right and does not stand there (making du’aa) afterwards. (102)

122. Then on the second day he repeats this stoning and on the third day.

123. And if he leaves after stoning on the second day not remaining for the third day’s stoning, then that is permissible as Allaah ta’ala says:

(Celebrate the praises of Allah during the Appointed Days, but if anyone hastens to leave in two days, there is no blame on him, and if anyone stays on, these is no blame on him if his aim is to do right,) However remaining for the third day’s stoning is better as it is the Sunnah.(103)

124. And the Sunnah is to do the previous actions of Hajj in order: the stoning, then slaughter, then shaving the head, then Tawaaf of Ifaada, the Sa’ee for the one doing Hajj at-Tamattu’; however if he brings something forward in the order or delays something in the order (doing things out of order) then that is permissible as the Prophet said: “There is no harm, there is no harm.”

125. And regarding stoning, the following is allowed to those who have a valid excuse:
(a) The permission not to have to spend the night in Minaa according to the hadith of Ibn ‘Umar: “Al ‘Abbaas sought permission of Rasoolullah to spend the night of Minaa in Makkah as he was responsible for supplying Zamzam water there, so he gave him the permission.”(104)
(b) To combine two days’ stoning in one day, according to the hadith of ‘Aasim ibn ‘Adiyy who said: “Rasoolullah made concession for the camel drivers in Bairootah that they could stone on the Day of Sacrifice, then combine two days’ stoning after that – performing it in one of the two days.”(105)
(c) To perform the stoning at night as the Prophet said: The shepherd may stone at night, then look after his flock in the daytime.(106)

126. And it is lawful for him to visit the Ka’bah and make Tawaaf during each of the nights of Minaa as the Prophet did so. (107)

127. And the pilgrim during the Days of Minaa must take care to pray the five daily prayers with the congregation – and it is best to pray the Masjid of Khaif if he is able to, as the Prophet said: Seventy Prophets have prayed in the Masjid of Khaif. (108)

128. So after completing the stoning on the second day or third day of the days of Tashreeq – then he has completed the rites of Hajj and therefore returns to Makkah – and remans there for as long as Allaah has written for him to remain – and he should take care to perform the prayer with the congregation – especially in the Masjid-ul-Haraam, and a single prayer in the Masjid-ul-Haraam is better than a hundred thousand prayers in other mosques. (109)

129. And he should perform much of prayer and Tawaaf at any time he pleases of the day or night as the Prophet said about the two corners – the Black Stone and Yemeni corner: “Touching them takes away sins, and he who performs Tawaaf does not raise or lower his foot (while walking) except that Allaah writes it for him as a good deed, and wipes off bad deed for him, and writes for him an extra rank and whoever does it even times round [check Sharh of at-Tirmidhee] it is as if he had freed a slave.”(110) And the Prophet said: “”O tribe of ‘Abd Manaaf! Do not prevent anyone from making Tawaaf of this house or from prayer at any hour of the day or night he pleases.””(111)

  • Innovations of Stoning:

106. Bathing in order to perforn the stoning.

107. Washing the stones before the stoning.

108. Saying “subhaanallah” or any other dhikr in place of takbeer.

109. Saying anything in addition to takbeer – such as:

110. The saying of some of the later people: “And it is sunnah to say when throwing each stone…”

111. Adhering to a particular way of throwing the stones: like the saying of some: He should put the end of his right thumb upon the center of his forefinger and he should place the stone upon the back of his thumb as if he was making the number 70 with his fingers – then he should throw it. And others say: He should make a circle with his forefinger upon the joint of his thumb as if he were making the number 10.

112. Fixing a certain place for the one stoning to stand – that there should be between him and the ppillar five arm-lengths.

113. Stoning with shoes, etc.

  • Footnotes:

100. 101. 102. 100,101,102. All of this is established in the hadith of Ibn Mas’ood reported by Bukhaaree and Muslim and others – and as for what occurs in some Hajj books that he should face the Qiblah upon stoning Jamrat-ul-Aqabah, then that contradicts this authentic hadith – and whatever contradicts it is shaadh (Glossary), or rather munkar (Glossary) as I have explained in ‘Ad-Da’eefah'(no.4864).

103. Shaikh-ul-Islaam Ibn Taimiyyah says: “So if the sun sets and he is still in Minaa – then he must remain for the stoning on the third day”. I say: And the great majority of scholars agree on that – contrary to what Ibn Hazm says in ‘Al-Muhallaa’ (7.185). And An-Nawaawi drives proof for them (the majority) from what is understood from Allaah ta’ala’s saying: faman ta’ajjala fee yaumaini falaa ithma ‘alaihi (8:283): “And the day (al-Yaum) is a name for the daytime not including the night”. And using what is confirmed from ‘Umar and his son ‘Abdullah who both said: “Whoever is at Minaa on the second day and the evening comes upon him – then let him stay until the next day and leave together with the people.” And the wording of ‘Al-Muwatta’ from Ibn ‘Umar is: “Then let him not leave until he has stoned the Jamaraat on the next day.” And Imaam Muhammad in his Muwatta (p.233) narrates it from Imaam Maalik and says: “And that is what we accept, and it is the saying of Abu Hanifah and people in general.”

104. Reported by Bukhaaree and Muslim and others – see ‘Al-Irwaa’ (no.1097). And I have pointed out there that my narrating it as being from the hadith of Ibn ‘Abbaas in the Original is a mistake.

105. Reported by Abu Dawud, At-Tirmidhi, An-Nasaa’ee and Ibn Maajah – and authenticated by a group of the scholars. See ‘Al-Irwaa’ (no.1080).

106. Hadith hasan reported by Al-Bazzaar and Al-Baihaqi and others from Ibn ‘Abbaas – Ibn Hajr declaring its isnaad to be hasan, and it has supporting narrations which I have quoted in ‘As-Saheehah’ (No.2477).

107. Reported with Mu’allaq isnaad by Bukhaaree (Mukhtasar al Bukhaaree, no.287) joined by a number of scholars whom I have named in ‘As-Saheehah’ (no.803).

108. Reported by Tabraani and Diyaa-al-Maqdisee in ‘Al-Mukhtaarah’ and ‘Al-Mundhari’ declares its isnaad to be hasan. And it is as he said as it has another chain of transmission as I have shown in ‘Tahdheer us-Saajid…’ (Pp.106-107 2nd edition).

109. Reported by AHmad and others from the hadith of Jaabir from the Prophet with saheeh isnaad – and authenticated by a number of scholars whom I have mentioned in ‘Al-Irwaa’ (no.1129).

110. Reported by Tirmidhee and others – authenticated by Ibn Khuzaimah and Ibn Hibbaan and al-Haakim and others – see ‘Al-Mishkaat’ (no.258) and ‘at-Targheeb’ (no.2/120,122).

111. Reported by Abu Dawud, Tirmidhee, an-Nasaaiee Ibn Maajah and others – authenticated by Tirmidhee and al-Haakim and adh-Dhahabee – see ‘Al-Irwaa’ (no.481).
