The former Grand Mufti of Egypt, a member of the Council of Senior Scholars, Ali Gomaa, said that whoever spends the whole day of Arafat in the mihrab of the Namira Mosque, there is no pilgrimage for him, explaining that the mosque is located outside the range of Mount Arafat, except for about one to three meters only from the mosque.
Juma’a clarified, according to a television interview monitored by “Watan”, that it is permissible not to spend the night in Mina on the day of Tarwiyah, continuing: “On the day of Tarwiyah, after the completion of Umrah, we have the right to go to Mina and we may not go.”
He pointed out that this is according to the group that performs Hajj with her, because it is a Sunnah from the Prophet, may God bless him and grant him peace. He moved to it to be close to Arafat, and for the water to go to them so that they could live these days.
The former Grand Mufti of the Republic added, in his speech regarding the Day of Tarwiyah: “There are groups that go directly to Arafat on the day of Arafat. Sometimes they go on the 8th of Dhul-Hijjah, and this is permissible, and sometimes they go on the 9th of Dhul-Hijjah.”
And he continued: “The Prophet, may God’s prayers and peace be upon him, when the hour came around 9 am, was pushed to Arafat from Mina, and the Prophet left Mecca on foot and returned to it on foot.”
He continued: “This is only the young Prime Time Zone capable of, so he went to Mina and then Arafat, and we are permitted to go to Arafat directly.”
He stressed that in Arafat we go to the places designated for us, adding: “But it is also from the Sunnah to attend with the imam and the imam to pray in Ibrahim Mosque, Nimra Mosque, or Urna Mosque.”
And he continued: “All of them are names for one place outside Arafat, one meter of it is in Arafat and the rest is outside Arafat,” as he put it.
He continued: “Therefore, whoever stays in the mihrab of the Nimra Malush mosque for pilgrimage, misses the pilgrimage because it is outside Arafat, for the mosque is about 2 or 3 meters away from it only inside Arafat.”
He added: “I pray the Zuhr and Asr prayers together with the imam outside Arafat, but I do not stand except in Arafat in the afternoon, when the standing begins in Arafat.”
And he continued: “What is between me and Arafat is a step, and all of Arafah is a standing place, all of it is a prayer place, and all of it is for remembrance.

The number of pilgrims this year was limited to about 60,000 Saudis and residents, compared to about 2.5 million in 2019 before the outbreak of the Corona epidemic.
Today, pilgrims head to the Mash’ar Mina (7 kilometers northeast of the Great Mosque of Mecca) to spend the day of Tarwiyah, following the Sunnah of the Messenger of God, may God’s prayers and peace be upon him, before setting off on the next day (the ninth of Dhul-Hijjah) to stand at the level of Arafat.
The name Tarwiyah Day is due to the fact that Prime Time Zone used to drink water on it and carry what they needed.
It is desirable to go to Mina before the meridian, so pilgrims pray there Zuhr, Asr, Maghrib, Isha and Fajr, shortening the four-way prayer without gathering.
