224366: He stoned the first jamrah before sunset on the last of the days of at-tashreeq; should he complete the stoning?


I stoned the first jamrah before sunset on the last day for stoning the jamaraat (the thirteenth of Dhu’l-Hijjah), then the sun set. Should I complete the stoning, by analogy with the one who catches up with a rak‘ah of the prayer before sunset?

Praise be to Allah

If a person does not complete the stoning before sunset on the last of the days of at-tashreeq, then he has missed out on the stoning of that day, and he has to offer a sacrifice in Makkah for omitting this obligatory act. 

I put this question to our Shaykh, ‘Abd ar-Rahmaan al-Barraak (may Allah preserve him, and he said: 

When the sun sets on the thirteenth day (of Dhu’l-Hijjah), the time for stoning has come to an end, and whoever did not stone all the jamaraat before sunset has missed out on stoning. No analogy can be made between this and the prayer.

Shaykh Muhammad Saalih al-Munajjid
