Discussion of Throwing Pebbles at the Jamrat

Topic/Issue:3592 - Throwing the pebbles till after the setting of the sun
Agreement:The jurists agreed that the desirable time for throwing pebbles at the Jamrat al -Aqaba is from the rising of the sun up to its decline, but if a pilgrim throws the pebbles before the setting of the sun on the day of sacrifice his act is valid and does not incur a liability (for atonement). They disagreed about the case of a person who does not throw the pebbles till after the setting of the sun, and does it during the night, or on the next day.
Opinions:
Opinion FromOpinionExplanation
Imam MalikHe is liable for atonement by slaughtering an animal. Imam Malik's reliance is on the argument that this time, which is agreed upon, during which the Messenger of Allah (God's peace and blessings be upon him) threw the pebbles is the sunna, and the person who violates one of the sunan of hajj is liable for atonement by slaughtering an animal

the underlying meaning of the exemption for the persons tending the camels is this that if the day of sacrifice had passed and they had thrown pebbles at the Jamrat al- Aqaba and then the third day would arrive, which was the first day of departure, the Messenger of Allah (God's peace and blessings be upon him) made an exemption for them that they may throw pebbles for that day (the second) and for the day following it.
In his view, combining is possible for what has become due, like combining in the third day and thus throwing pebbles for the second and the third day, because delayed performance is not possible in his view except for what has become due.
Imam Abu HanifaIf he throws the pebbles during the night he does not incur any liability, but if he delays it till the next day he is liable to atonement by slaughtering an animal.
Imam ShafiThere is no liability for him if he delays it till the night or up the next day. Their evidence is "that the Messenger of Allah (God's peace and blessings be upon him) made an exemption for those tending the camels to throw the pebbles during the night and also the Narration of Ibn Abbas
They made an exemption for combining two days into one, whether the day being added to the other has passed or is yet to come, and they did not draw a similarity with gads'
