9th Zhul-hijjah | Day of Arafah On the following day, you must head to Arafah from Mina, with reciting the Talibyah on the way. Arriving at the Arafah, you must wait for the sun torise at the highest position, then Imam will give Khuthbah. Follow with your Dhuhr and Asr prayers, either by shortening or combining. The reason to keep Khuthbah short and recite the prayers is such that pilgrims will have ample of time for waqoof. Your Waqoof will begin with rising and praying to Allah. Your hands should be raised, with face on the side of Qiblah and then proceed with duaa. Your time must be dedicated in making duaa as much as you can, with a provision of taking breaks, if you ever feel tired. The surrounding area of Arafah is ideal for Waqoof, hence it is not necessary to climb Arafah. Masjid Namrah is within the boundary of Waqoof area, so care must be taken once you are inside the Masjid. Hajj is of no value, if Waqoof of Arafah is notperformed. Your entire time should be spent in making prayers.
