حجاج بيت الله الحرام يرمون الجمرات في مشعر منى
 
يواصل حجاج بيت الله الحرام رمي الجمرات في منى في أول أيام التشريق، قبل أن يتوجهوا إلى مكة المكرمة لأداء طواف الوداع.

يرمي الحجاج في هذا المشعر 7 حصوات، ومن السنة الشريفة أن ترفع اليد إلى الأعلى عند الرمي وأن يردد الحاج كلمة الله أكبر قبيل رميِ كل حصوة.

ويبيت الحجاج بعد الانتهاء من رمي الجمرة بمنى لمدة ثلاثة أيام، وهي أيام التشريق الثلاثة (11 و12 و13 من ذي الحجة) لرمي الجمرات الثلاث، مبتدئين بالجمرة الصغرى ثم الوسطى ثم جمرة العقبة (الكبرى)، ويمكن للمتعجل أن يختصرها إلى يومين فقط، حيث يتوجه إلى مكة لأداء طواف الوداع وهو آخر مناسك.

More than two million Muslim pilgrims gathered at the Grand Mosque, Islams holiest mosque, to mark the end of their hajj pilgrimage

A crowd of faithful makes its way to throw stones at a pillar, symbolising the stoning of Satan, in a ritual called Jamarat before gathering at the Grand Mosque

Hajj is one of the largest gatherings of people in the world and every adult Muslim is required to complete the pilgrimage at least once in their lifetime as long as they are physically and financially capable of making the expensive and difficult journey.

Every year, Muslim faithful from about 160 countries converge on the Islamic city of Mecca and other locations in western Saudi Arabia to complete the holy journey.

The week of Hajj occurs during the last month of the Islamic calendar and it requires pilgrims to perform a number of services or rituals before arriving in Mecca.

The tasks include visiting Mount Arafat on the first day, visiting Muzdalifah after sunset on the second day, throwing stones at pillars that symbolise the devil, and shaving one’s head.

With the conclusion of hajj – the fifth of the pillars of Islam – Muslims are now celebrating the start of Islam’s biggest holiday.Eid al-Adha, or Feast of Sacrifice, commemorates what Muslims believe was Prophet Abrahams willingness to sacrifice his son Ismail - the Biblical Ishmael, though Christians and Jews believe his other son Isaac was the near-sacrifice - as a test of his faith from God. In the end, he is provided with a sheep to sacrifice instead.

In remembrance, Muslims around the world slaughtered sheep and other livestock on Saturday, giving some meat to the poor.

Because Eid follows the Muslim lunar calendar that depends on sightings of the moon, some Muslims will be celebrating the first day of Eid on Sunday, including Iraqi Shiites and the majority of Indonesians in the worlds most populous Muslim nation of 240 million. Pakistan will celebrate on Monday.

During this year’s pilgrimage, officials in Saudi Arabia took extra precautions to ensure the Ebola outbreak that has killed more than 3,400 people in West Africa remains outside the kingdom and to prevent the spread of the deadly MERS coronavirus.

Muslims from Sierra Leone, Liberia and Guinea – the countries hardest hit in the Ebola epidemic – were not given visas by Saudi Arabia as a precaution against the virus, a measure that affected 7,400 would-be pilgrims from these nations.
