Section : Moving out to Mina.

It is sunnah to move to Mina on the 8th of Zhul-Hijjah. So all pilgrims, who are performing Hajj Qiran or Hajj Ifrad, they should proceed in their ihram to it. Those performing Hajj Tamattu’ should on that day put on ihram (as they did the first time at the miqat and proceed to Mina with others. According to sunnah a pilgrim performing Hajj Tamattu’ should put on his ihram from the place of his stay. If he is in Makkah he should assume ihram from Makkah, otherwise he may assume ihram from wherever he is staying. In a hadith we read, “He who is staying at Makkah, should put on ihram from where he is staying. The residents of Makkah should put on their ihram from Makkah.”

It is commended that one should make supplications and say talbiyah as much as possible while moving to Mina, and should offer Zuhr, ‘Asr, Maghrib and Isha prayers at Mina, and spend the night there, and not depart from it until the sunrise of the ninth day of Zhul-Hijjah. following the example of the Prophet (peace be upon him). If anyone misses any of these he will be missing a sunnah act, but he is not required to do anything to compensate for it. Ibn Al-Munzhir has reported that ‘Aishah did not leave Makkah on the 8th of Zhul-Hijjah till quite late, after one third of the night had passed.
