TIMESINDONESIA, MAKKAH – The Ijtima Ulama of the Indonesian Fatwa Commission has developed new guidelines concerning the observance of mabit in Muzdalifah and Mina to provide practical guidance for Hajj 2024 pilgrims. A significant new guideline introduced is the concept of murur, allowing pilgrims to pass through Muzdalifah without disembarking from their vehicles.

Sharia Solution for Hajj Pilgrims

Prof. Asrorun Niam Sholeh, Chairman of the Fatwa Division, explained that one of the primary focuses of the Ijtima Ulama's discussion was the jurisprudence of Hajj, particularly regarding mabit in Muzdalifah.

"The contemporary issue discussed and established in the guidelines is the practice of mabit in Muzdalifah by way of murur, which means passing through Muzdalifah while remaining in the vehicle without disembarking and staying overnight," stated Asrorun Niam Sholeh.

This discussion aims to provide sharia-compliant solutions for Hajj pilgrims. With the increasing number of pilgrims and the limited space in Muzdalifah, these guidelines are intended to assist pilgrims in performing their rituals more efficiently and comfortably. 

Murur Guidance for Mabit

The murur method enables pilgrims to observe mabit in Muzdalifah by passing through without leaving their vehicles. This guidance is expected to resolve space limitations in Muzdalifah, which often pose challenges, especially with the increasing number of pilgrims each year. With these guidelines, pilgrims can fulfill their religious obligations in accordance with sharia while addressing practical challenges. This flexibility in the application of Islamic law reflects its adaptability to contemporary conditions and needs.

The Ijtima Ulama of the Fatwa Commission hopes that this guidance will be understood and implemented by all Indonesian Hajj pilgrims. Additionally, the guidelines aim to provide comfort and ease for pilgrims in performing their Hajj rituals more effectively.

"We hope that these guidelines can serve as a reference for pilgrims, ensuring they can perform their rituals smoothly and devoutly," concluded Prof. Niam.
