On the 8th of Zul-Hijjah, a Pilgrim performing Hajj At-Tamatt'u should assume Ihraam again from where he is staying, saying: "Labbayka Allaahumma Hajjan".


It is better to leave for Mina in the morning. In Mina, the pilgrims pray Thuhr, 'Asr, Maghrib and 'Ishaa' of the 8th and Fajr of the 9th ('Arafah day). Zuhr, 'Asr and 'Ishaa' are shortened to two Rak'ahs, but are not combined, Sahih al-Bukhari 1083. One should increase remembrance of Allaah and supplication, and repeat Talbiyyah. [1]
