The Days of Hajj

I have taken this excerpt from a blog, The Days of Hajj Series by Yaser Birjas. It is well-written and simple to understand, even for a beginner and if one needs to refresh knowledge about the Hajj.

The Days of Hajj Series: Part 1 | Part 2 | Part 3 | Part 4 | Part 5

The Messenger of Allah (salla Allahu alayhi wa sallam) said: “ الحج عرفة “ or “Hajj is Arafah“. The Arabic text implies a very important concept of the meaning of Hajj. This short statement means that the whole hajj and its validity is confined in the actual day of Arafah i.e. Hajj becomes valid only when the day of Arafah is observed and witnessed by those who undertake the journey, the pilgrims. Regardless how long the hujjaj stay in Makkah, if they missed that single day, they have then missed the whole Hajj.
