Recitation of Hajj:
For Haj pilgrims wear special clothes called ihram. Men wear a 2-piece unstitched white robe. At the same time, women also wear open-colored clothes in which only their hands and face are left covered.
All travelers going to Masjid al-Haram, which houses the Kaaba, and take seven trips to the Kaaba. It is called Tawaf. After Tawaf, travelers walk back and forth between Safa and Marwah, two hills situated near the Kaaba. Which is called Say. The ritual of Tawaf and Say is called Umrah and only after this do the actual rituals of Hajj begin.
After Umrah, the next morning, after offering prayers, travelers reach Meena, a place 5 kilometers from Mecca, where they spend the rest of the day. Here he recites the four Namaz for the rest of the day.
On the second day, the passengers reach the hill of Arafat, 10 km from Meena, and offer prayers. It is necessary to spend the afternoon on the hills of Arafat, otherwise, Hajj will be considered incomplete.
After hiding the sun, Haji goes to Muzdalfa, situated between Arafat and Meena. They stay there till midnight. At the same time, they collect stones to kill the devil.
On the third day, the first passenger goes to Meena and throws the devil three times. Meena has three huge pillars of stones that depict the devil. On this day, Haji only stones the largest pillar. Stoning rituals have to be performed 2 more times in the following days. After stoning the devil, the goats are halted and meat is distributed among the needy. Now we get our hair cut after goat sacrifice. Men go completely bald and women get a fingertip cut. After the haircut, the ritual of Tawaf has been performed once again, that is, travelers go to Mecca and go round the Kaaba seven times.
On this day only the ritual of stoning the devil is performed. Haji Meena goes and throws stones on the pillars of three stones depicting the devil.
On this day, the ritual of stoning the devil ends again. Haji leaves for Mecca before the sunsets. On the last day, Haji again completes the ritual of Tawaf. With this, the Haj pilgrimage is completed. Many travelers later also visit Madina where the tomb of Hazrat Muhammad (SAW) is located.
Why does Satan kill stones?
It is believed that once Allah asked Hazrat Ibrahim his favorite thing in sacrifice. Ibrahim was born to a child in his old age, whom he named Ismail, he loved him the most. But obeying the orders of Allah, he agreed to sacrifice his son. When Hazrat Ibrahim was going to sacrifice his son, a devil was found on the way and he asked him why he is sacrificing his son at this age and who will take care of him after he dies.
Hearing this, Hazrat Ibrahim fell into thinking and his intention of sacrificing also began to waver but then he was careful and went to offer the sacrifice. Hazrat Ibrahim felt that his feelings could be interrupted while making the sacrifice, so he blindfolded him. As soon as he removed the bandage after giving the sacrifice, he saw his son standing alive and was chopped off a lamb. This is the reason why the animal is sacrificed on this day. At the same time, Muslims stone Satan during Hajj because he tried to seduce Hazrat Ibrahim.
