Spending the day at `Arafah

Spending the day at `Arafah The first question of Fatwa no. 5724 I went for Hajj with a Hajj campaign and we stayed in Mina during the night before the ninth of Dhul-Hijjah, and then we left it to head towards `Arafah before Fajr (Dawn) Prayer. We prayed Fajr in `Arafah, because the people in charge of the campaign did this for fear of the crowds. Must we do any expiatory act?

A: You do not have to do anything, but it is better for the pilgrim to go (Part No. 11; Page No. 211) from Mina to `Arafah after sunrise on the ninth day of Dhul-Hijjah.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
