Hajj involves several actions and rituals to be performed in Mecca , and three other locations surrounding it, namely Mina, Arafat and Muzdalifah.
These actions include staying in Mina for the entire day and night on the eight day of Zulhijjah (the last month in the Islamic calendar).
The pilgrims then proceed to Arafat the next day. The following day, they travel from Arafat to Muzdalifah and spend the night there, leaving the next morning back to Mina.
On the tenth day of Zulhijjah, animals such as goats are sacrificed. The pilgrims also throw pebbles at three stations for the next three days. This is called the Ramy al-Jamarat which signifies their defiance against the devil. Lastly, before leaving Mecca, the pilgrims go around the Kaabah (a cuboid building in the centre of the mosque) seven times.
