Millions of Hujjaj (pilgrims), who spent the whole night in the open sky offering prayers in Muzdalfa, are reaching Mina where they will perform stoning at Jamarat Al-Aqba.
After stoning, Hujjaj will sacrifice animals, shave their heads and then leave for Makkah to perform Tawaf Al-Ifada and Sai’, two other pillars of Hajj.
In the remaining days of Hajj, pilgrims will perform the only ritual of stoning at each of the three Jamarat in Mina.
Earlier, in Maidan-e-Arafat, chanting “Labbaik Allahumma Labbaik” around two million pilgrims supplicated atonement of their sins before Allah.
