Days of At-Tashrik (10/07)

The days of At-Tashriq - the continuation of the feast of the sacrifice of Eid al-Adha - are celebrated from the 11th to the 13th day of the 12th month of the Muslim lunar calendar Zul-Hijjah.

Pilgrims go to the area of Mina on the night of the first of the days of At-Tashriq and spend the night there. Starting from the morning prayer of the day of Tashriq until the afternoon prayer of the third day of Tashriq, Muslims, after collective prayers, read the takbir called takbir Tashriq.

After the time of Az-Zuf on the first day of At-Tashriq, pebbles are thrown at three pillars. First, in a small (jamrat al-ula) - 7 pebbles, then in the middle pillar (jamrat al-wusta) - 7 pebbles, and then in a large pillar (jamrat al-akaba) - 7 pebbles. When throwing, it is desirable to pronounce the words: "Allah Akbar."

On the second day of the days of At-Tashriq, the same rite is repeated as on the first day. Then, if the pilgrim was caught by the sunset of the second day in Mina, then he is obliged to stay and throw pebbles on the third day. If someone is afraid for himself during a crush, then he can postpone the throwing of all the stones on the third day, and if he cannot physically, then he entrusts it to another. However, if he can do it himself, he cannot entrust it to another.
