Waqf Al Arafa - Hajj Date 2021

Waqf Al Arafah – Hajj is included among the five main pillars of Islam and it helds 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 a same place where Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) gave his Farewell Sermon.

Hajj is not considered complete until pilgrims stop at Mount Arafat. So the Rukn is synonymous with the Haj itself. Pilgrims arrive before noon and spend the whole afternoon there, remaining until Maghrib. People who are not physically fit to perform this task are obliged to compensate it with fasting.

From about noon until Maghrib, pilgrims stand in earnest supplication and devotion, praying for God's abundant forgiveness, and listen on different issues of religious and moral importance. They ask for Allah’s mercy and shed tears to make repentance. The day ends after the recitation of Al-Maghrib prayer. Next day on Eid ul Adha, pilgrims do Qurbani (sacrificial of animals) On this page you can check the date of Waqf Al Arafa.
