Saudi Gazette report

ARAFAT — Pilgrims on Thursday evening began moving to Muzdalifah after they ascended Mount Arafat in Makkah in the day where they were immersed in prayers and supplications till sunset, marking the peak of Hajj, amid a strict system of precautionary health measures and services offered by the government of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques to make the mission of pilgrims a complete success.

While in Muzdalifah, their third station of Hajj, pilgrims will perform Maghrib (sunset) and Isha (evening) prayers together, and stay the night there, before heading toward the valley of Mina again as per the deeds of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him).

The movement of pilgrims on their descending journey from Arafat to Muzdalifah went on smoothly, thanks to the unprecedented services provided by the authorities, including the health precautionary and preventive measures, the Saudi Press Agency reported.

At Muzdalifah, pilgrims will gather pebbles for a symbolic stoning of the devil ritual starting Friday, which is also the Eid Al-Adha.
