Hujjaj are stoning Al-Aqba, the Satan at Jamarat. The vast plains of Arafat were soaked with tears of millions of repenting pilgrims and the air reverberated with their prayers at the spiritual climax of Hajj on Thursday.

Millions of Hujjaj, who spent whole night in the open sky offering prayers in Muzdalifah proceeded to Mina after Fajr prayers this morning.

After reaching Mina, the pilgrims are currently performing (stoning of the devil) Jamarat Al-Aqba after that they will sacrifice animals, shave their heads and then leave for Makkah to perform Tawaf Al-Ifada and Sai’, two other pillars of Hajj.

In the remaining two or three days of Hajj, the only ritual to perform in Mina is stoning at each of the three Jamarat in Mina.

The vast plains of Arafat were soaked with tears of millions of repenting pilgrims and the air reverberated with their prayers at the spiritual climax of Hajj yesterday.
