Hajj Days 4, 5 & 6

11th, 12th & 13th Dhul Hijjah: Mina

For each successive day that you stay in Mina, (you should stay for at least 2 and up to 3 days after Eid), you are to perform rami everyday. It is preferred to perform rami after noon. On these days, however, all three Jamrat are to be stoned, throwing seven pebbles at each one. A pebble cannot be reused.

The stoning is to be done in order, starting from the smallest pillar and going to the largest.

It is sunnah to face the Kaaba and perform supplications after stoning the smallest (Jamrah as Sughra) and the middle Jamrat (Jamrah al Wusta).

Last Day in Mecca

On your last day in Mina, after rami you will leave for Mecca. Before leaving Mecca, you are to perform tawaf-i-wida. Saee is not to be performed with this tawaf.

Now it’s back to Jeddah to catch your plane back home! Don’t forget to take Zamzam water with you! Be thoroughly prepared for the confusion, delays, chaos and indifference of airport personnel. This is where your hajj will really be put to the test.
