It was a busy day for pilgrims who reassembled in Mina on Monday after spending the night in Muzdalifah. They stoned Jamarat Al-Aqaba (the big Satan), slaughtered sacrificial animals, shaved hairs, and got out of the state of ihram.
A large number of them headed toward the Grand Mosque for Tawaf Al-Ifada, which is an important pillar of the pilgrimage.
By Monday afternoon, the tent city — which till now appeared like a snow-dusted valley because of the ihram-clad pilgrims — presented a kaleidoscope of colorful patterns as Hajis moved about attired in their colorful best.[Source: Saudi Gazette]
