Should We Fast During Hajj or Focus on Other Acts of Worship?
  • Question:

    Should people on the Hajj pilgrimage fast the nine days of Dhul-Hijjah? Should they increase their fasting or should they rather focus their efforts on actions such as more frequent tawaf etc.?

    How much should we fast considering the physical drain of the experience and rites?


    Assalamu Alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh

    Thank you for your question.

    It is a recommended sunna to fast the first nine days of Dhu’l Hijja. [al-Fatawa al-Hindiyya]

    As for fasting during Hajj, it would remain recommended to fast these days as long as it will not weaken you from fulfilling your duties on the Hajj. This applies especially to Day 8 and the Day of `Arafa, Day 9.
