Question

With regard to those who come for
Hajj from outside Makkah, travelling
from other regions of the Kingdom
or from outside, they shorten the
prayers without putting them
together on the eighth day (of
Dhu’l-Hijjah), and they shorten
them and put them together on the
ninth day, but what about the Day
of Sacrifice and the days of at-
Tashreeq?

Answer

Praise be to Allah
With regard to the pilgrim who
comes from outside Makkah, his
prayers on the Day of Sacrifice and
on the days of at-Tashreeq are no
different to his prayers on the Day
of at-Tarwiyah (the eighth of Dhu’l-
Hijjah), the day of ‘Arafah and the
night of Muzdalifah, with regard to
shortening the prayer.
He should shorten his prayers on all
of these days, so he should pray the
four-rak‘ah prayers (Zuhr, ‘Asr and
‘Isha’) with two rak‘ahs. This was
the practice of the Messenger
(blessings and peace of Allah be
upon him).
Shaykh Ibn Baaz (may Allah have
mercy on him) said:
The Sunnah [i.e., for the pilgrims in
Mina] is to offer every prayer on
time, shortening the prayer but not
putting prayers together, except
that Maghrib and Fajr cannot be
shortened. … Because the Prophet
(blessings and peace of Allah be
upon him) led the people in prayer
in Mina, ‘Arafah and Muzdalifah,
shortening the prayers.
End quote from Majmoo‘ Fataawa
ash-Shaykh Ibn Baaz (16/67-86)
Shaykh ‘Abd al-‘Azeez ibn Baaz (may
Allah have mercy on him) was
asked: What is the ruling on putting
prayers together for the traveller in
Mina? There are some people who
put the prayers together all the
time when travelling, whether they
are on the move or halting, so they
put the prayers together in Mina on
the day of at-Tarwiyah and on the
days of at-tashreeq, on the grounds
that they are travelling. Please
advise us, may Allah reward you, on
how the prayers are to be offered at
these times.
He replied:
In Mina the Sunnah is to shorten
the prayers without putting them
together. The Prophet (blessings
and peace of Allah be upon him)
shortened the prayers without
putting them together in Mina,
because he had reached a
destination and halted, and was at
ease. The Sunnah is to shorten the
prayers but not to put them
together.
This is how the traveller should do
it. When he reaches a destination
and halts, and is at ease, it is
preferable for him to shorten the
prayers without putting them
together, but if he does put them
together, there is nothing wrong
with that. The Prophet (blessings
and peace of Allah be upon him)
prayed in Tabook, where he had
halted, and put the prayers
together. Both matters were
narrated from him (blessings and
peace of Allah be upon him). He
shortened the prayers without
putting them together in Mina
during the Farewell Hajj at the end
of his life, and he only lived three
months after that. He would pray
two rak‘ahs in Mina without putting
the prayers together; he prayed
Zuhr on its own, ‘Asr on its own,
Maghrib on its own, and ‘Isha’ on its
own. This is the Sunnah during the
days of Hajj, following his example
(blessings and peace of Allah be
upon him), because he said: “Learn
from me your rituals (of Hajj).” And
Allah, may He be exalted, said:
“Indeed in the Messenger of Allah
(Muhammad (blessings and peace of
Allah be upon him)) you have a good
example to follow” [al-Ahzaab
33:21].
End quote from Majmoo‘ Fataawa
ash-Shaykh Ibn Baaz (30/210-211)
With regard to the residents of
Makkah now, in fatwa no.
we stated that they should shorten
their prayers in ‘Arafah and
Muzdalifah, and offer them in full in
Mina, because Makkah has
expanded and Mina has become as
if it is one of the neighbourhoods of
Makkah.
And Allah knows best.
