He explained that the pilgrims would spend the night in Muzdalifah before travelling to Mina to perform the stoning ritual at Jamrah Kubra and then stay overnight in Mina.

He said he also reminded the pilgrims to continue making duá to Allah and asking for His forgiveness and blessing so that their haj journey would be facilitated.
