THE THIRD DAY OF HAJJ 10th Zil Hajj
THE THIRD DAY OF HAJJ (10th Zil Hajj) Return in Mina After gathering pebbles in Muzdalifah and after offering Fajr prayer before sunrise return to Mina and do following after being there:
FIRST TASK Hit Seven Pebbles To Jumra Kabira (Biggest Satan).. On the locations where satan made a failure attempts to misdirect Hazrat Ibrahim Khalil ul Allah (Friend of Allah), on those places three pillars have been constructed for identification. These are called satan in public language. Take seven pebbles out of those pebbles which you have brought from Muzdalifah to hit the biggest satan. As a precautionary measure take additional one or two pebbles in case of a pebble is missed to hit satan, so in the place of it you can hit another one. Do not pick up a pebble from ground as it is accursed (mardood). Leave first two Jumrat and come in front of the largest Jumra. Stand at the distance of 3-4 feet and hit pebble one by one. Hold the pebble with the thumb and forefinger (shahadat ki ungli) and after reading the following takbeer hit the pebble: bismillahi llahu akbar wa lillahil hamd
Hit every pebble in the root of pillar in such a way that pebble fell in a cistern which is made around the pillar. If you will throw a pebble directly on pillar it will fall far from pillar and another pebble is required to be thrown in place of it. Do not say anything absurd while throwing the pebbles.
REMEMBER — It is wajib(must do) on every pilgrim to hit pebbles himself. If any pilgrim assigns another pilgrim to hit pebbles in his place then his wajib(must do) will remain, for the compensation of which a dam(sacrificing an goat or a sheep within the boundaries of Makkah) is
required. Extremely weak and feeble people can hit pebbles in the night after dawn. Only extremely disabled, blind, people bereaved from legs and hands can assign others to hit pebbles in their place.
SECOND TASK To Sacrifice.. For the pilgrims of Hajj Qiran and Hajj Tamattu, it is the responsibility to perform second task of hajj that is to sacrifice. This sacrifice of hajj is called “Dum Shukar.” You have to sacrifice with the same intention. However, pilgrims who perform hajj Ifraad are not responsible to sacrifice but it is mustahib for them which mean if they can afford then sacrifice.
THIRD TASK To Shave or Clip The Hair.. After hitting pebbles to the biggest satan and sacrificing the third task is to shave or clip the hair of head on 10th zil hajj. After this all the restrictions are finished which were imposed while you wore ehram. However, husband wife cannot get involve in physical relationship unless they do “Tawaf-e-Zayarat”.
FOURTH TASK Performing Tawaf e Ziyarat.. The fourth work on 10th zil hajj is to perform “Tawaf-e-Ziyarat”. This Tawaf-e-Ziyarat is a very important rukn (ritual) of Hajj. For this tawaf you are required to come to Makkah Mukarama in your routine dress after hitting pebbles to Jumra Kabira, sacrificing, and shaving or clipping the hair of your head. The most preferred time for Tawaf-e-Ziyarat is 10th zil hajj but if someone could not perform this tawaf-e-ziyarat on 10th zil hajj then he must do it before sunset of 12th zil hajj. If 12th zil hajj passed and tawaf-e-ziyarat was not performed then due to delay to give “dum” (sacrificing animal within the boundaries of Makkah) will remain wajib (must-do) and tawaf will remain an obligation.
TAWAF E ZIYARAT is neither elapsed in any case nor can it be compensated. Its performance remains an obligation till the end of life. Unless tawaf-e-ziyarat is performed restrictions regardinghusband and wife remain imposed. All the restrictions which were haram during ehram are halal now.
Sayee after Tawaf-e-Ziyarat.. Since, before Waqoof-e-Arafat you performed the Sayee of Umrah and not of Hajj, so after Tawaf-e-Ziayarat Sayee of Safa Marwa is wajib (must-do) on you. This sayee will be performed without ehram in your daily cloths and you will not cut hair after this as you have already cut hair after sacrifice and ehram ends before this. After getting free, you go to Mina again. It is sunnat to stay in Mina after Tawaf-e-Ziyarat and one should not unnecessarily stay in Makkah. However, if the time of prayer is near then after offering prayer in Masjid Haram return to Mina as soon as possible. The time of stay in Mina is of the remembrance of Allah, prayers of forgiveness to Allah, reading Darood sharif excessively and this time should not be spent heedlessly.
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)
