I would like to clarify in sequence of performing Hajj can we do tawaf ifada then follow by 1st stoning jamrah aqabah? And what is the correct time to do tawaf ifada and stoning jamrah aqabah.

Jazakallahu khair.


`Alaykum Salam,

The first stoning at Jamrat al-`Aqaba is supposed to come before Tawaf al-Ifada in all Four Schools, however it is allowed and is not offensive in the Shafi`i and Hanbali Schools to do Tawaf al-Ifada first, followed by the first stoning.

The time bracket for Tawaf al-Ifada is from Fajr time on 10 Dul-Hijja according to Hanafis and Malikis, and from mid-night before 10 Dhul-Hijja according to Shafi`is and Hanbalis. Its permissible time has no end in one’s whole lifetime according to the latter two schools, but Malikis said an expiatory sacrifice is due if tawaf is done after the month of Dhul-Hijja while Imam Abu Hanifa said an expiatory sacrifice is due if tawaf is delayed beyond 12 Dhul-Hijja.

As for the stoning of Jamrat al-`Aqabah its timing similarly starts from Fajr time on 10 Dul-Hijja according to Hanafis and Malikis, and from mid-night before 10 Dhul-Hijja according to Shafi`is and Hanbalis. Its permissible time ends at Fajr time on 11 Dhul-Hijja for the Hanafis and at Maghrib time on 11 Dhul-Hijja for the Malikis, while Shafi`is and Hanbalis consider it permissible until the end of the Days of Tashriq (Maghrib time on 13 Dhul-Hijja) because they are all days of stoning.
