Proceeding From Arafat To Muzalifa

Muzdalifa is situated within the boundaries of Haram at a distance of 3 miles towards the east from Mina. You are to reach Muzdalifa on the night of the 10th Zilhijja after being free from the Waqof in Arafat. Maghrib and Isha prayers are to be said togather in the time of Isha. The name of Allah and Talbia should be continuously repeated throughout the way. On this day, it is not permissible for the Hajj Pilgrims to say their Maghrib prayers in Arafat or on the way to Muzdalifa. It is Wajib to delay their Maghrib prayers and to say it is Muzdalifa alongwith Isha prayers. The Waqof Fardh prayers of Isha should be said imm-
ediately after the Fardh prayers of Maghrib. Sunnat prayers of Maghrib as well as Sunnat and Witr prayers of Isha should be said afterwards (Zubda).
