Yawm Al-Kholeef - The Custom of the Women of Makkah during the Day of Arafah

The Yawm Al-Kholeef (Women's Day) custom continued throughout the ages with the arrival of the blessed Day of Arafah. The women of Makkah Al-Mukarramah go to the Grand Mosque to spend the Day of Arafah there, where the majority of men are family heads who work in the raft and serve the pilgrims of Hajj.

Most of Makkah's neighborhoods, including Al-Misfalah, Al-Mansur, Jarul, Al-Hijlah, and Ajyad, become empty on the day of Arafat as pilgrims make their way to the level of Arafat.

They start to circumambulate (Tawaf) and sleep in the courtyards of the Grand Mosque and spend the day of Arafah with their children while breaking their fast there. During this time, they also give lectures and seminars and pass along to the next generation this inherited custom.

- Families continue to pray in the Grand Mosque throughout the Maghrib and Isha prayers, and they don't leave until the Isha prayer is finished. Most Viewed : What do you know about the Holy site of Mina

The Grand Mosque in Makkah is frequently decorated in the colors of the black covers for women from the holy capital who find the Day of Arafah to be an appropriate opportunity to spend the day in the Grand Mosque in Makkah, which is empty of worshippers. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to circumambulate, kiss the black stone, wipe it, and cling to a veil Kaaba for quite a while. Follow Saudi Expatriates on Instagram
