The Station at Arafa

Topic/Issue:3573 - Person leaves before sunset
Agreement:They agreed that the person who stops at Arafa prior to the declining of the sun and moves from there before the declining of the sun, his stationing there is of no account. If he does not return and stop there till after the declining of the sun or on this night before the rise of the dawn, his hajj is lost
