Arafat

Arafat’ is on a valley about 20 km outside Makkah. On the 9th of Dhu-al-Hajj, it is mandatory for all the pilgrims to reach and stay in the valley of Arafa’ and spend the day in making special prayer and seeking forgiveness for all sins from Allah; failing which can invalidate the Hajj. Jabalur-Rahamah or the Mount of Mercy is a mountain in the valley of Arafat. It is about 70 m high. Our Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) stayed on this mountain and made Waqoof. The mosque Masjid-e-Nimra is located here. Two thirds of this mosque lie on the valley of Arafat while one third on the valley of Nimra and the valley of Urana’. Nowadays, the Sermon of Hajj is delivered from Masjid-e-Nimra. Our Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be on him) delivered the Sermon of Hajj while sitting on his camel (Quswa) in the valley of Urana’.It is mandatory for the pilgrims to offer Qsr and combine prayers of Dhuhr and Asr after the Sermon of Hajj in or around Masjid-e-Nimra, and then reach the valley of Arafat and make waqoof there, spending quality time in spiritual activities to seek blessing and forgiveness of Allah.
