The Prophet Last Hajj: Wada’ Hajj Story Part 3

 

 

After the speech, Bilal recited the call to prayer and followed by iqamat. Then the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) performed the Dhuhur prayer with his companions. After Bilal recited the iqamat again, he followed with the Asr prayer, and there was no more prayer between the two. Then he rode Al-Qashwa ‘until he arrived at the place of wukuf. There Al-Qashwa ‘ roared until his stomach stuck to the sand. He remained on the back of Al-Qashwa ‘until the sun went down. The twilight glow is slowly fading away. After piggybacking Osama, he continued his journey to Muzdalifah. He did Maghrib prayer and Isha there, with one call to prayer and two iqamat, without any prayer between the two. Then he lay down until daybreak. After the call to prayer and iqamat, he performed the Fajr prayer, then climbed onto the back of Al-Qashwa ‘and went to Al-Masy’aril Haram. By facing towards the Qibla, he prays, recites takbir, and unites Allah.

 

From Muzdalifah he went to Mina before sunrise, with Al-Fadhl bin Abbas, until he arrived at Mahsar. Then pass through the middle road that connects the Jumrah Kubra which is near a tree at that time, which is called the Number of Aqabah or the First Jumrah. He threw it with seven pebbles, saying takbir every time he threw it. Then he went to the place of slaughtering sacrifices and slaughtered sixty-three camels with his own hands, then he handed over to Ali bin Abu Talib who slaughtered thirty-seven camels, until all of them were a hundred camels, then cooked and he ate meat and drank the gravy.

 

By uploading Al-Qaswa ‘he went to the Kaaba and prayed Duhur in Mecca. He approached the people of Bani Abdul Muttalib who were taking water from the well of Zamzam. He said, “Leave the people of Banu Abdul Muttalib, otherwise because there are people who will take your drinking water, I would have joined you.” Then they offered him a bucket of water, and he drank it.

 

On the day of sacrifice or the tenth of Dhul Hijjah, precisely at the time of dhuha, the Prophet SAW delivered a speech from above the bighal’s back, which Ali imitated in a loud voice. While some people are standing and some are sitting. The content of the speech this time repeated many of the speeches he delivered the day before. Ash-Shaykhani narrated from Abu Bakra, he said, “The Prophet SAW delivered a speech to us on the day of sacrifice. He said, “Indeed, the age revolves around the shape of the time when the heavens and the earth were created. One year there are twelve months, including four holy months, three months in a row, namely Dhul Qa’dah, Dzulhijjah, and Muharram, and Rajab which is located between the two Jumada and Sha’ban. He asked, “What month is it this time?” We replied, “Allah and His Messenger know best.” He was silent until we thought he would give another name. He asked, “Isn’t this the month of Dhul Hijjah?” “That’s it,” We replied. He asked, “What country is this?” “Allah and His Messenger know best,” we replied. He was silent until we thought he would give another name. He asked, “Isn’t this your country?” “That’s it,” we answered. He asked, “What day is it,” “Allah and His Messenger know best,” we replied. He was silent until we thought he would give another name. He asked, “Isn’t this the day of the sacrifice?” “That’s it,” we replied. He said, “Verily, your blood, wealth and honor are as holy to you as this day, in your country and in this month of yours. You will appear before the Lord, then he will ask about your deeds. Know, do not go astray again after my death, until some of you cut off the necks of others. Do you know what I said?” “Right,” they answered. “Oh God, behold. Those who are present should inform those who are not present. How many people who deliver are more aware than those who hear?”
