8th Dhul Hijjaj - Hajj And Umrah Guide



AlSafar Hajj Umrah Guide
to help you prepare for the sacred pilgrimage...


177. It is Sunnah for Qarin to perform Tawaful Qudum before leaving for Mina on the 8th of Dhul Hijjah, if he has not already done it. It is more virtuous for him to perform Sa’ey also after Tawaful Qudum. Before Sa’ey he should perform Tawaf with Idtiba in all the seven circuits and Ramal in first three circuits, make Du’a at Multazam, perform Rak’atain for Tawaf, drink Zam Zam water and perform Istilam for the 9th time. In this Sa’ey he should recite Talbiyah also.

But he should perform Tawaf without Idtiba and Ramal if he postpones the Sa’ey of Hajj till after Tawafuz Ziyarah. In such a case he will have to perform Tawafuz Ziyarah with Ramal and will be exempted from Idtiba because by then he would have relinquished Ihram and would have changed into the clothes of daily use.

178. A Mutamatti should assume Ihram before proceeding to Mina.

179. A Mutamatti can resume Ihram with the intention of Hajj from any place within the precincts of Haram, even from the place he is staying and not necessarily from Masjidul Haraam only. It is Sunnah to take a bath before it.

180. There is no Tawaful Qudum for Mutamatti. If he wants to perform the Sa’ey for Hajj before he proceeds to Mina, he should first perform a Nafl Tawaf with Idtiba in all the seven circuits and Ramal in only first three circuits, make Du’a at Multazam, perform Rak’atain for Tawaf, drink Zam Zam water, perform Istilam for the 9th time, and then proceed for Sa’ey. But for a Mutamatti it is most virtuous to perform Sa’ey after Tawafuz Ziyarah.

181. A Mufrid performs Tawaful Qudum soon after his arrival at Makkah Mukarramah and does not relinquish Ihram. On the 8th of Dhul Hijjah he should straight away proceed to Mina.

It is most virtuous for him to perform Sa’ey for Hajj after Tawaful Ziyarah. However, if he wants to perform Sa’ey before leaving for Mina he should do it according to the procedure explained at Serial No. 180.

182. It is Sunnah to leave the Holy City of Makkah for Mina on the 8th of Dhul Hijjah after sunrise. But a pilgrim should raise no objection if, due to rush and as arranged by the Mu’allim, he has to leave earlier for Mina.

183. On the 8th of Dhul Hijjah it is Sunnah to offer Fard Salah for Zuhr, Asr, Maghrib, Isha and after it Fajr in Mina. A pilgrim should stay at Mina during the night. While going to Mina, he should think “MY MAWLA (MASTER) IS NOW CALLING ME THERE”.

184. The recitation of Takbiratut Tashriq begins on the 9th of Dhul Hijjah after Fajr prayers. A pilgrim should recite the following loudly once after every Fard Salah at Mina, Arafat and Muzdalifah.

Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, La Ilaha Illallah Wa Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar Wa Lilla Hil Hamd

185. From 9th to 13th Dhul Hijjah, a pilgrim should recite the above mentioned Takbir first, then he should recite Talbiyah. A pilgrim stops reciting Talbiyah on the 10th of Dhul Hijjah, but Takbir should be recited till after Salatul Asr on the 13th of Dhul Hijjah.

186. In Hajj days, that is from 9th to 12th Dhul Hijjah, the night that follows the day is reckoned as a part of that day. But the night after the 13th Dhul Hijjah is not considered to be its part.
