Hajj – Minaa [contd.] (Ahadith 1499 – 1501)


Volume 2, Book 26, Number 799:

Narrated Ibn ‘Umar (radiallaahu `anhu):

The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) permitted (them).

Volume 2, Book 26, Number 800:

Narrated Ibn ‘Umar (radiallaahu `anhu):

That the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) allowed (as above).

Volume 2, Book 26, Number 801:

Narrated Ibn ‘Umar (radiallaahu `anhu):

Al-Abbas (radiallaahu `anhu) asked the permission from the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) to stay at Mecca during the nights of Mina in order to provide water to the people, so the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) allowed him.

Previously discussed here.

Staying overnight in Mina during the Days of Tashreeq is obligatory according to the majority of fuqahaa’; the one who fails to do that with no excuse is obliged to offer a sacrifice. According to the majority of scholars one should stay there for most of the night.

(al-Mawsoo’ah al-Fiqhiyyah, part 17, p. 58).

Not staying overnight in Mina during the Days of Tashreeq may be one of the following cases:

The first case: when a person does not stay overnight in Mina because he has an excuse.

Shaykh Ibn Baaz was asked about the ruling on a person who does not stay overnight in Mina during the Days of Tashreeq. He said:

He is not obliged to offer any sacrifice because Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning): ‘So keep your duty to Allaah and fear Him as much as you can’ [al-Taghaabun 64:16] – whether he did not stay overnight at Mina because of sickness or because there was no room, of for some similar legitimate excuse such as those who bring water to the pilgrims and those who tend sheep, and whatever else comes under the same rulings.

The second case: when a person does not stay overnight (in Mina) during the days of Tahsreeq with no excuse.

The Shaykh (may Allaah have mercy on him) said:

Whoever does not stay overnight in Mina during the Days of Tashreeq with no excuse has failed to do something which was prescribed by the Messenger of Allaah SAWS (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) in both word and deed, and by the fact that he made a concession for some of those who have excuses such as shepherds and those who bring water to the pilgrims. Concessions can only be made when there is something which has to be done. Hence staying overnight in Mina during the Days of Tashreeq is considered to be one of the obligatory duties of Hajj, according to the more correct of the two scholarly views, and whoever does not do that and has no legitimate excuse has to offer a sacrifice, because it was reported that Ibn ‘Abbaas (may Allaah be pleased with them both) said: “Whoever fails to do one of the rituals [of Hajj] or forgets it, let him offer a sacrifice.” It is sufficient to offer one sacrifice for not staying overnight in Mina during the days of Tashreeq.”

(Majmoo’ Fataawa al-Shaykh Ibn Baaz – may Allaah have mercy on him – vol. 5, p. 182)

He should offer the sacrifice and share out its meat among the poor in the Haram, and he should not eat any of it. And Allaah knows best.

Sheikh Muhammed Salih Al-Munajjid [IslamQA]

Slaughtering Place (Manhar) of the Prophet [sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam] (Ahadith 1468 – 1469)


Volume 2, Book 26, Number 768:

Narrated Nafi’:

‘Abdullah (bin ‘Umar) (radiallaahu `anhu), used to slaughter (his sacrifice) at the Manhar. (‘Ubaidullah, a sub-narrator said, “The Manhar of Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam).”)

Volume 2, Book 26, Number 769:

Narrated Nafi’:

Ibn ‘Umar (radiallaahu `anhu) used to send his Hadi from Jam’ (to Mina) in the last third of the night with the pilgrims amongst whom there were free men and slaves, till it was taken into the Manhar (slaughtering place) of the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam).

Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) slaughtered his sacrificial animals in Mina. That’s where his ‘manhar‘ was.

Hajj – `Arafaat and the Journey to Muzdalifah (Ahadith 1421 – 1432)


Volume 2, Book 26, Number 721:

Narrated Muhammad bin Abu Bakr Al-Thaqafi:

I asked Anas bin Malik (radiallaahu `anhu) while we were proceeding from Mina to ‘Arafat, “What do you use to do on this day when you were with Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam)?” Anas (radiallaahu `anhu) said, “Some of us used to recite Talbiya and nobody objected to that, and others used to recite Takbir and nobody objected to that.”

Volume 2, Book 26, Number 722:

Narrated Salim:

‘Abdul Malik wrote to Al-Hajjaj that he should not differ from Ibn ‘Umar (radiallaahu `anhu) during Hajj. On the Day of ‘Arafat, when the sun declined at midday, Ibn ‘Umar (radiallaahu `anhu) came along with me and shouted near Al-Hajjaj’s cotton (cloth) tent. Al-Hajjaj came out, wrapping himself with a waist-sheet dyed with safflower, and said, “O Abu Abdur-Rahman! What is the matter?” He said, If you want to follow the Sunna (the tradition of the Prophet (p.b.u.h) ) then proceed (to ‘Arafat).” Al-Hajjaj asked, “At this very hour?” Ibn ‘Umar (radiallaahu `anhu) said, “Yes.” He replied, “Please wait for me till I pour some water over my head (i.e. take a bath) and come out.” Then Ibn ‘Umar (radiallaahu `anhu) dismounted and waited till Al-Hajjaj came out. So, he (Al-Hajjaj) walked in between me and my father (Ibn ‘Umar (radiallaahu `anhu)). I said to him, “If you want to follow the Sunna then deliver a brief sermon and hurry up for the stay at ‘Arafat.” He started looking at ‘Abdullah (Ibn ‘Umar) (radiallaahu `anhu) (inquiringly), and when ‘Abdullah (radiallaahu `anhu) noticed that, he said that he had told the truth.

Volume 2, Book 26, Number 723:

Narrated Um Al-Fadl bint Al Harith (radiallaahu `anhaa):

On the day of ‘Arafat, some people who were with me, differed about the fasting of the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) some said that he was fasting while others said that he was not fasting. So I sent a bowl full of milk to him while he was riding his camel, and he drank that milk.

Volume 2, Book 26, Number 724:

Narrated Salim bin ‘Abdullah bin ‘Umar:

‘Abdul-Malik bin Marwan wrote to Al-Hajjaj that he should follow ‘Abdullah bin ‘Umar (radiallaahu `anhu) in all the ceremonies of Hajj. So when it was the Day of ‘Arafat (9th of Dhul-Hajja), and after the sun has deviated or has declined from the middle of the sky, I and Ibn ‘Umar (radiallaahu `anhu) came and he shouted near the cotton (cloth) tent of Al-Hajjaj, “Where is he?” Al-Hajjaj came out. Ibn ‘Umar (radiallaahu `anhu) said, “Let us proceed (to ‘Arafat).” Al-Hajjaj asked, “Just now?” Ibn ‘Umar (radiallaahu `anhu) replied, “Yes.” Al-Hajjaj said, “Wait for me till I pour water on me (i.e. take a bath).” So, Ibn ‘Umar (radiallaahu `anhu) dismounted (and waited) till Al-Hajjaj came out. He was walking between me and my father. I informed Al-Hajjaj, “If you want to follow the Sunna today, then you should shorten the sermon and then hurry up for the stay (at ‘Arafat).” Ibn ‘Umar (radiallaahu `anhu) said, “He (Salim) has spoken the truth.”

Volume 2, Book 26, Number 725:

Narrated Muhammad bin Jubair bin Mut’im:

My father said, “(Before Islam) I was looking for my camel ..” The same narration is told by a different sub-narrator. Jubair bin Mut’im (radiallaahu `anhu) said, “My camel was lost and I went out in search of it on the day of ‘Arafat, and I saw the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) standing in ‘Arafat. I said to myself: By Allah he is from the Hums (literally: strictly religious, Quraish were called so, as they used to say, ‘We are the people of Allah we shall not go out of the sanctuary). What has brought him here?”

Volume 2, Book 26, Number 726:

Narrated ‘Urwa:

During the pre-lslamic period of Ignorance, the people used to perform Tawaf of the Ka’ba naked except the Hums; and the Hums were Quraish and their offspring. The Hums used to give clothes to the men who would perform the Tawaf wearing them; and women (of the Hums) used to give clothes to the women who would perform the Tawaf wearing them. Those to whom the Hums did not give clothes would perform Tawaf round the Ka’ba naked. Most of the people used to go away (disperse) directly from ‘Arafat but they (Hums) used to depart after staying at Al-Muzdalifa. ‘Urwa added, “My father narrated that ‘Aisha (radiallaahu `anhaa) had said, ‘The following verses were revealed about the Hums: Then depart from the place whence all the people depart–(2.199) ‘Urwa added, “They (the Hums) used to stay at Al-Muzdalifa and used to depart from there (to Mina) and so they were sent to ‘Arafat (by Allah’s order).”

Volume 2, Book 26, Number 727:

Narrated ‘Urwa:

Usama (radiallaahu `anhu) was asked in my presence, “How was the speed of (the camel of) Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) while departing from ‘Arafat during the Hajjatul Wada?” Usama (radiallaahu `anhu) replied, “The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) proceeded on with a modest pace, and when there was enough space he would (make his camel) go very fast.”

Volume 2, Book 26, Number 728:

Narrated Usama bin Zaid (radiallaahu `anhu):

As soon as the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) departed from ‘Arafat, he went towards the mountain pass, and there he answered the call of) the prayer is ahead of you (i.e. at asked, “O Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam)! Will you offer the prayer here?” He replied, “(The place of) the prayer is ahead of you (i.e. at Al-Muzdalifa).”

Volume 2, Book 26, Number 729:

Narrated Nafi’:

‘Abdullah bin ‘Umar (radiallaahu `anhu) used to offer the Maghrib and ‘Isha’ prayers together at Jam’ (Al-Muzdalifa). But he used to pass by that mountain pass where Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) went, and he would enter it and answer the call of nature and perform ablution, and would not offer any prayer till he had prayed at Jam.’

Volume 2, Book 26, Number 730:

Narrated Usama bin Zaid (radiallaahu `anhu)

rode behind Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) from ‘Arafat and when Allah’s Apostle reached the mountain pass on the left side which is before Al-Muzdalifa he made his camel kneel and then urinated, and then I poured water for his ablution. He performed light ablution and then I said to him: (Is it the time for) the prayer, O Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam)!” He replied, “The (place of) prayer is ahead of you (i.e. at Al-Muzdalifa).” So Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) rode till he reached Al-Muzdalifa and then he offered the prayer (there) . Then in the morning (10th Dhul-Hijja) Al-Fadl (bin Abbas) (radiallaahu `anhu) rode behind Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam). Kuraib, (a sub-narrator) said that ‘Abdullah bin Abbas (radiallaahu `anhu) narrated from Al-Fadl (radiallaahu `anhu), “Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) kept on reciting Talbiya (during the journey) till he reached the Jamra.” (Jamrat-al-Aqaba)

Volume 2, Book 26, Number 731:

Narrated Ibn Abbas. (radiallaahu `anhu):

I proceeded along with the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) on the day of ‘Arafat (9th Dhul-Hijja). The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) heard a great hue and cry and the beating of camels behind him. So he beckoned to the people with his lash, “O people! Be quiet. Hastening is not a sign of righteousness.”

Volume 2, Book 26, Number 732:

Narrated Usama bin Zaid (radiallaahu `anhu):

Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) proceeded from ‘Arafat and dismounted at the mountainous pass and then urinated and performed a light ablution. I said to him, “(Shall we offer) the prayer?” He replied, “The prayer is ahead of you (i.e. at Al-Muzdalifa).” When he came to Al-Muzdalifa, he performed a perfect ablution. Then Iqama for the prayer was pronounced and he offended the Maghrib prayer and then every person made his camel kneel at his place; and then Iqama for the prayer was pronounced and he offered the (‘Isha’) prayer and he did not offer any prayer in between them (i.e. Maghrib and ‘Isha’ prayers).

  1. Talbiyah or Takbir is to be recited during the Hajj days (including 9th Dhul-Hijjah).
  2. Fasting on the 9th is mustahab (recommended).
  3. When the sun rises on the day of ‘Arafah, the pilgrim travels from Mina to ‘Arafah and stops in Namirah until the time of Zuhr (Namirah is a place just before ‘Arafah), if he can do so. If he cannot do it, it does not matter because staying in Namirah is Sunnah but it is not obligatory. When the sun passes its zenith (i.e., when the time for Zuhr prayer begins), he should pray Zuhr and ‘Asr, two rak’ahs each, and join them together at the time of Zuhr, as the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) did, so as to leave a lot of time for standing and making du’aa’.

    Then after the prayer he should devote his time to making dhikr and du’aa’ and beseeching Allaah, and praying as he likes, raising his hands and facing the qiblah even if the mountain of ‘Arafah is behind him, because the Sunnah is to face the qiblah, not the mountain. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) stood by the mountain and said, “I am standing here, but all of ‘Arafah is the place of standing.”

    Most of the Prophet’s du’aa’ in that great place of standing was: “Laa ilaaha ill-Allaah wahdahu laa shareeka lah, lahu’l-mulk, wa lahu’l-hamd, wa huwa ‘ala kulli shay’in qadeer (There is no god but Allaah alone, with no partner or associate; His is the Dominion, all praise is due to Him, and He is able to do all things).”

    If the pilgrim gets tired and wants to have a break by talking to his companions about useful things or by reading from some useful books, especially things that have to do with the generosity and great bounty of Allaah, in order to increase his hopes on that day, this is good.  Then he can go back to beseeching Allaah and praying to Him. He should strive to make the most of the end of the day by making du’aa’. The best of du’aa’ is du’aa’ made on the day of ‘Arafah.

  4. When the sun sets, the pilgrim should go to Muzdalifah. When he reaches there, he should pray Maghrib and ‘Isha’ with one adhaan and two iqaamahs. If he fears that he will not reach Muzdalifah before midnight, he should pray on the way, because it is not permissible to delay ‘Isha’ prayer until after midnight.

Going Overboard with Fiqh (Ahadith 1415 – 1419)


Hadith no. 1413 (below) is a repeat. Read it here.

Volume 2, Book 26, Number 713:

Narrated Jabir bin ‘Abdullah (radiallaahu `anhu):

The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) and his companions assumed Ihram for Hajj and none except the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) and Talha had the Hadi (sacrifice) with them. ‘Ali (radiallaahu `anhu) arrived from Yemen and had a Hadi with him. ‘Ali (radiallaahu `anhu) said, “I have assumed Ihram for what the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) has done.” The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) ordered his companions to perform the ‘Umra with the lhram which they had assumed, and after finishing Tawaf (of Ka’ba, Safa and Marwa) to cut short their hair, and to finish their lhram except those who had Hadi with them. They (the people) said, “How can we proceed to Mina (for Hajj) after having sexual relations with our wives?” When that news reached the Prophet he said, “If I had formerly known what I came to know lately, I would not have brought the Hadi with me. Had there been no Hadi with me, I would have finished the state of lhram.” ‘Aisha (radiallaahu `anhaa) got her menses, so she performed all the ceremonies of Hajj except Tawaf of the Ka’ba, and when she got clean (from her menses), she performed Tawaf of the Ka’ba. She said, “O Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam)! (All of you) are returning with the Hajj and ‘Umra, but I am returning after performing Hajj only.” So the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) ordered ‘Abdur-Rahman bin Abu Bakr (radiallaahu `anhu) to accompany her to Tan’im and thus she performed the ‘Umra after the Hajj.

Hadith no. 1414 (below) is also a repeat. Read it here.

Volume 2, Book 26, Number 714:

Narrated Hafsa (radiallaahu `anhaa):

(On ‘Id) We used to forbid our virgins to go out (for ‘Id prayer). A lady came and stayed at the Palace of Bani Khalaf. She mentioned that her sister was married to one of the companions of Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) who participated in twelve Ghazawats along with Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) and her sister was with him in six of them. She said, “We used to dress the wounded and look after the patients.” She (her sister) asked Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam), “Is there any harm for a woman to stay at home if she doesn’t have a veil?” He said, “She should cover herself with the veil of her companion and she should take part in the good deeds and in the religious gatherings of the believers.” When Um ‘Atiyya (radiallaahu `anhaa) came, I asked her. “Did you hear anything about that?” Um ‘Atiyya (radiallaahu `anhaa) said, “Bi Abi” and she never mentioned the name of Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) without saying “Bi Abi” (i.e. ‘Let my father be sacrificed for you’). We asked her, “Have you heard Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) saying so and so (about women)?” She replied in the affirmative and said, “Let my father be sacrificed for him. He told us that unmarried mature virgins who stay often screened or unmarried young virgins and mature girls who stay often screened should come out and take part in the good deeds and in the religious gatherings of the believers. But the menstruating women should keep away from the Musalla (praying place).” I asked her, “The menstruating women?” She replied, “Don’t they present themselves at ‘Arafat and at such and such places?”

Today’s Ahadith:

Volume 2, Book 26, Number 715:

Narrated ‘Abdul ‘Aziz bin Rufai:

I asked Anas bin Malik (radiallaahu `anhu), “Tell me what you remember from Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) (regarding these questions): Where did he offer the Zuhr and ‘Asr prayers on the day of Tarwiya (8th day of Dhul-Hajja)?” He replied, “(He offered these prayers) at Mina.” I asked, “Where did he offer the ‘Asr prayer on the day of Nafr (i.e. departure from Mina on the 12th or 13th of Dhul-Hijja)?” He replied, “At Al-Abtah,” and then added, “You should do as your chiefs do.”

Volume 2, Book 26, Number 716:

Narrated ‘Abdul ‘Aziz:

I went out to Mina on the day of Tarwiya and met Anas (radiallaahu `anhu) going on a donkey. I asked him, “Where did the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) offer the Zuhr prayer on this day?” Anas (radiallaahu `anhu) replied, “See where your chiefs pray and pray similarly.”

Volume 2, Book 26, Number 717:

Narrated ‘Abdullah bin ‘Umar (radiallaahu `anhu):

Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) offered a two-Rakat prayer at Mina. Abu Bakr (radiallaahu `anhu), ‘Umar (radiallaahu `anhu) and ‘Uthman (radiallaahu `anhu), (during the early years of his caliphate) followed the same practice.

Volume 2, Book 26, Number 718:

Narrated Haritha bin Wahab Al-Khuza’i (radiallaahu `anhu):

The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) led us in a two-Rakat prayer at Mina although our number was more than ever and we were in better security than ever.

Volume 2, Book 26, Number 719:

Narrated ‘Abdullah bin Masud (radiallaahu `anhu):

I offered (only a) two Rakat prayer with the Prophet (at Mina), and similarly with Abu Bakr (radiallaahu `anhu) and with ‘Umar (radiallaahu `anhu), and then you differed in opinions. Wish that I would be lucky enough to have two of the four Rakat accepted (by Allah).

  1. Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) shortened salah in Minaa. Should we do it or not? Answer here.
  2. There’s no need to fight over this issue, as Abdullah ibn Mas`ud (radiallaahu `anhu) comments in the last narration. Because the real question is whether those 2 or four rak`aat will be accepted by Allah or not?
    It often happens that we get so engrossed in Fiqh issues that the spirit in worship gets lost somewhere. Must prevent that! Yes, knowing the ‘how’ is very important, but we shouldn’t forget the ‘why’ in the process. Allahul Musta`aan!

Hajj – Minaa (Hadith No. 1399)


Hadith no. 1397 (below) is a repeat. Read it here.

Volume 2, Book 26, Number 697:

Narrated Ibn Abbas (radiallaahu `anhu):

Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) performed Tawaf (of the Kaba) ending a camel (at that time the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) had foot injury). Whenever he came to the Corner (having the Black Stone) he would point out towards it with a thing in his hand and say, “Allahu-Akbar.”

Hadith no. 1398 (below) is also a repeat. Read it here.

Volume 2, Book 26, Number 698:

Narrated Um Salama (radiallaahu `anhaa):

I informed Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) that I was sick. He said, “Perform Tawaf (of the Kaba) while riding behind the people.” So, I performed the Tawaf while Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) was offering the prayer beside the Kaba and was reciting Surat-at-Tur.

Today’s Hadith:

Volume 2, Book 26, Number 699:

Narrated Ibn Umar (radiallaahu `anhu):

Al Abbas bin Abdul-Muttalib (radiallaahu `anhu) asked the permission of Allahs Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) to let him stay in Mecca during the nights of Mina in order to provide the pilgrims with water to drink, so the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) permitted him.

A pilgrim must stay the nights of tashreeq in Mina. Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) allowed `Abbaas (radiallaahu `anhu) to stay back due to his genuine excuse.
