If the stoning is delayed, the pilgrim should go for the 3 jamrahs to stone in order for 3 successive days in order to finish his pilgrimage duties and proceed to do Farwell Tawaf if he is not a Makkah resident.

If the stoning is delayed

A pilgrim who has delayed the stoning until the last day starts doing this duty as for the first day, i.e. 11 Dhul-Hijjah, and performs the stoning at the three Jamrahs in the right order, as explained earlier. After stoning at the Grand Jamrah, he goes back to the first Jamrah to do the stoning for the second day, 12 Dhul-Hijjah, at the three Jamrahs in the same order. He repeats the whole process again for the last day, 13 Dhul-Hijjah. When he has done this, his pilgrimage duties are completed and he should leave Mina. It should be noted that if stoning is not done before sunset of the 13th, it cannot be done afterwards.

It is a Sunnah, if possible, to stop at al-Abtah, and offer the prayers of Thuhur, 'Asr, Maghrib and 'Isha’, and to spend part of the night there. However, this has become practically impossible for almost all pilgrims. Omitting it does not cause a problem.

After that, pilgrims proceed to Makkah where they should do the tawaf of farewell if they are not resident in Makkah. Women who are in the period or still have postnatal bleeding are exempt from this tawaf. A pilgrim should make the tawaf of farewell the last thing he does in Makkah, but if he needs to delay his departure for a short time to  have a meal, wait for other pilgrims in his group, or wait for his transport, he does not need to repeat the tawaf of farewell.

When the pilgrim has completed his pilgrimage, he is recommended to glorify Allah and praise Him for having facilitated his performance of this great and essential duty of Islam, praying Him to overlook and forgive any shortcoming in his performance.

‘When you have fulfilled your sacred duties, remember Allah as you remember your fathers – nay with a yet keener remembrance’
