The pilgrims of the State of Qatar settle with the crowds of pilgrims at the pure level of Arafat, after they head there tomorrow, Saturday, the 9th of Dhul-Hijjah, to perform the greatest pillar of the Hajj, and witness the great pause, in a scene full of faith, with humility and tranquility, praying and supplicating, praying to God Almighty to grant them pardon, forgiveness, mercy, and freedom from Hell.

At Arafat, pilgrims will pray the noon (Zuhr) and afternoon prayers (Asr) combined and shortened with one call to prayer and two iqamas. They remain in Arafat and strive diligently in remembrance and supplication until sunset.

After sunset, all the pilgrims depart from Arafat to Muzdalifah, where they pray the sunset (Maghrib) and evening (Ishaa) prayers, combined and shortened, and spend the night there, before heading to Mina to stone the Great Jamarat of Aqaba.
