Hundreds of thousands of Muslims today (Monday) performed Waqoof-e-Araftat‚ the main ritual of Hajj.
After reaching Maidan-e-Arafat from Mina this morning‚ the Hujjaj offered combined Zohar and Asar prayers led by Grand Mufti of Saudi Arabia Shaikh Abdul Aziz.
After the prayers‚ they spent the day in praying Almighty Allah for pardoning their sins‚ well-being of the ummah and glory of Islam.
Millions of Hujjaj after spending the night at Muzdalifah under open sky have started moving towards Mina to stone Satan Kabir.
The Hujjaj after sacrificing animals will shave their heads and return to Makkah to perform another main ritual of Hajj “Tawaf-e-Ziarat”.
After performing Tawaf-e-Ziarat‚ the Hujjaj will come back to Mina to perform remaining Hajj rituals.
The Saudi government has made excellent arrangements on all Hajj routes to facilitate the pilgrims.
