Mina, Dhu-AlHijjah 10, 1439, Aug 21, 2018, SPA -- The Ministry of Hajj and Umrah has launched an awareness message today, saying:
"Dear Pilgrim,
The Messenger (peace be upon him) said: Take from me your Manasik (rites of Hajj).
Sacrifice Day is the 10th of Dhul-Hijjah. On this day, the pilgrims reach Mina, where they throw seven pebbles on the largest Jamrah saying Allahu Akbar while casting each pebble. Then, the pilgrims shave their heads and perform Tawaf Ifadah. The pilgrims put off their Ihram after doing two of the three rites, namely throwing pebbles on the largest Jamrah, shaving the head and performing Tawaf Ifadah including Sai if the pilgrim is performing Hajj Tamattu or Hajj Ifrad and Qiran but hasn't performed Sai yet."
