Ruling on delaying Jamraat to the last day and throwing all the pebbles at one time

Question 12: Is it permissible for the pilgrim to stone the Jamraat (stone pillars at which pebbles are thrown during Hajj) of the Days of Tashreeq (11th, 12th and 13th of Dul-Hijjah) all in one day, being the first or the last of the Days of Tashreeq or the Day of Nahr (Sacrifice, 10th of Dul-Hijjah, when pilgrims slaughter their sacrificial animals) then spend the night in Minaa for two or three days without throwing the pebbles at the Jamraat as they are to be thrown in one day? Or should the throwing be done in order, each day separately? Kindly point this out to us, supporting your answer with evidence.

Answer: Stoning the Jamraat is one of the obligations of Hajj and should be done on the Day of ‘Eed (Day of Nahr) and the following three Days of Tashreeq for those who are not in a hurry to leave Minaa on the 12th of Dul-Hijjah and the first two Days of Tashreeq for those who are in a hurry. Throwing the pebbles should be done each day after midday. This is based on the action of the Prophet (peace be upon him) and his saying: Learn your (Hajj) rituals from me except on the day of Nahr which is all fit for throwing, though it is better to do it after sunrise, except for those who have excuses who are permitted to stone Jamraat-ul-‘Aqabah on the 9th of Dul-Hijjah after 12:00 p.m… read more here.
