Waqf Al Arafa - Hajj Date 2023

Waqf Al Arafah – Hajj is included among the five main pillars of Islam and it is held each year in the month of Zil Hajj. Hajj begins on 8th Zilhaj and Muslims perform several rukns (tasks) during Hajj days. However, the main rukn of Hajj is to stay at Maidan e Arafat.

Millions of Muslims gather at plain of Arafat for the Rukn e Azam. It is estimated that this year also over 2 million people will stay at Arafat. It is also the same place where Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) gave his Farewell Sermon.
