Q: Is it permissible for the pilgrim
to stone the Jamrat (stone pillars at which pebbles are thrown during Hajj) of the Days of Tashriq (11th, 12th and 13th of Dhul-Hijjah) all in one day,
being the first or the last of the Days of Tashriq or the Day of Nahr (Sacrifice, 10th of Dhul-Hijjah, when pilgrims slaughter their sacrificial animals) then spend the night in
for two or three days without throwing the pebbles at the Jamrat as they are to be thrown in one day? Or should the throwing be done in order, each day separately? Kindly point this out to us, supporting your answer with evidence.
Stoning the Jamrat is one of the obligations of Hajj and should be done on
the Day of ‘Eid (Day of Nahr) and the following three Days of Tashriq for those who are not in a hurry to leave Mina on the 12th of Dhul-Hijjah and the first two Days of Tashriq for those who are in a hurry. Throwing the pebbles should be done each day after midday. This is based on the action of the Prophet (peace be upon him) and his saying:
Learn your (Hajj) rituals from me
except on the day of Nahr which is all fit for throwing, though it is better to do it after sunrise, except for those who have excuses who are permitted to stone Jamrat-ul-‘Aqabah on the 9th of Dhul-Hijjah after 12:00 p.m. It is not permissible to stone the Jamrat before its due time; as for delaying it, this is permissible in cases of extreme necessity such as to avoid overcrowding, according to a group of scholars on the basis of Qiyas (analogy) with those who provide water for the pilgrims whom the Prophet (peace be upon him) gave Rukhsah (concession) to stone the three Jamrat of two days on the second one of them, i.e., 12th of Dhul-Hijjah. But in such a case, the correct order is still obligatory: one must begin by stoning with the intention of performing it for `Eid day, then one stones with the intention of performing it for the first day, then for the second day, and then for the third day, if the person is not in a hurry to leave. Then Tawaf-ul-Wada‘ (circumambulation around the Ka‘bah on leaving Makkah) is to be performed. Allah knows best.
