The Stoning

And he picks up in Mina stones with which he intends to do the stoning of Jamrat-ul-'Aqabah - and it is the last of the Jamrat and the nearest one to Mecca.

And he faces the Pillar (Jamrah), having Mecca to his left and Mina to his right.

Then he stones it with seven small stones, like the Stones of Khadhf - which are slightly longer than the chick-pea.

And he recites takbir while throwing each stone. [73]

And he ceases reciting talbiyah when throwing the last stone. [74]

And he does not perform this stoning until after sunrise, even the women or weak who were allowed to leave Muzdalifah after half the night, as this is one thing and the stoning is something else. [75]

And he may perform this stoning after noon even up to the night if he finds difficulty in performing this stoning before noon as is established in the hadith.

So when he has stoned the Jamrah everything becomes lawful for him again except women, even if he has not sacrificed or shaved his head - so he may wear his clothes and use perfume.

However he should perform Tawaf-ul-Ifadah on the same day (before Maghrib) if he wishes to continue in his state of having left ihram - otherwise, if he has not made Tawaf before the evening (before Maghrib) then he returns to the state of ihram as he was before the stoning - so he should remove his clothes and put on ihram according to the Prophet's saying: Verily on this day has been allowed for you, when you have stoned the Jamrah, that was prohibited for you except women (sexual intercourse). Verily on this day everything that you were prohibited from (by ihram) has been allowed for you, when you have stoned the Jamrah, except the women (sexual intercourse) - so if evening comes upon you before you have made Tawaf of this House then you revert to the state of ihram as you were before stoning the Jamrah - until you make the Tawaf.
