The First Day of Hajj (8th Zil Haj) Yaum-al-Tarwiah
Ehram and Intention.. generally, on 8th zil hajj determinants of hajj start to move towards Mina early in the morning after offering fajr prayer. So, on 8th zil hajj ehram for hajj is wore in Makkah Mukarama. (Because of crowd, it is fine to wear ehram on 7th zil hajj and move towards Mina). It is preferred to wear the ehram of hajj from Masjid Haram and offer two nafal with the intention of ehram of hajj. Read Surah Al kafiroon in first rakat and Surah Al ikhlas in second rakat as it is preferred. However, other surah can also be recited. Pray to Allah after offering nafal. Intend for hajj after reading the following prayer in heart:allahumma inni yuridul hajja fayasiruhuli wataqabbalahu minniI intend to perform Hajj; make it easy for me and accept it from me.” Read talbiyah after intending for hajj: Labaik allahumma labaik,labaik la sharikalak labaik,innal hamd wan naymata lakaval mulk ,la sharikalak
Here I am O Allah, (in response to Your call), here I am. Here I am. You have no partner, here I am. Verily all praise, grace, and sovereignty belong to You. You have no partner.Now, the ehram of hajj has started and the same restrictions are imposed on you which were imposed during the ehram of Umrah.
Five Prayers in Mina.. after wearing the ehram of hajj, you will go to Mina on 8th zil hajj. It is sunnat to offer 5 prayers in Mina today which means Dhuhr, Asr, Maghrib, isha’a of 8th zil hajj and Fajr of 9th zil hajj. Remain busy in remembrance of Allah, offering nawafil, reading darood pak, and reciting Holy Quran during other time. Try to offer some prayers in Masjid Khaif because according to some sayings seventy thousands Prophets (A.S) has offered prayers in this Masjid. This is the masjid of Mina and according to some sayings, seventy thousand Prophets (A.S) buried here.
When I want to talk to allah I say prayers and when I want that he talk to me I recite quran- Hazrath Ali(ra)
