On the first day of Eid al-Adha, pilgrims throw stones at Jamarat al-Aqaba

Today, Sunday, the pilgrims began throwing stones at Jamrat al-Aqaba at Mina, after they fled from Muzdalifah yesterday evening, Saturday, with the end of their stop at the Arafat level.

The journey from Arafat to Muzdalifah is the third stage of the pilgrims’ journey through the holy sites to perform their Hajj rituals.

It is prescribed for pilgrims to begin the acts of sacrifice after they have finished stoning the Jamarat. They begin by slaughtering the sacrificial animal, then shaving their heads, then circumambulating the Holy Kaaba and sa’i between Safa and Marwah.

The pilgrims continue to complete their rituals after that, as they remain the days of Tashreeq in Mina, and complete the stoning of the three Jamarat, starting with the smallest, then the middle, then the largest, each with seven pebbles.

The movement of pilgrims to the Holy House of God was characterized by “fluidity amid the efforts made by various parties concerned with Hajj affairs in the service of the guests of God to perform their rituals in peace and security,” according to SPA.

The Saudi Minister of Hajj, Tawfiq Al-Rabiah, revealed that “the total number of pilgrims for this year 1445 AH reached one million and 833 thousand and 164 male and female pilgrims, including 221 thousand and 854 from within the Kingdom.”
