Camping at Mina

On 10th Dhul Hijjah, the Day of Sacrifice and the Day of the Eid, the pilgrim, after performing Tawaf Ifadah [and Sa’ay], returns from Makkah to Minna to camp here for 2 or 3 days of Ayyam Al-Tashriq. The activities during these days are throwing at the three Jamrahs: Jamrah Al-Sughra, Jamrah Al-Wusta, and Jamrah Al-Kubra in that order.

During the period of his camping in Mina, the pilgrim should strive to observe the Five Obligatory Salahs in congregation. The best thing for him, if this is feasible, is to observe them in Masjid Al-Khayf in Minna, as the Prophet [s.a.w.s] said: “Seventy prophets had prayed in Masjid Al-Khayf.” [Al-Tabarani]
