The eleventh day of Dhu al-Hijjah begins with the first of the three days of al-Tashreeq, which ends with sunset on the thirteenth. In this case, it becomes the name of the fresh meat, and this prevents the meat from rotting and spoiling so that pilgrims can take it back with them to their countries.
The custom of shrouding sacrificial meat has disappeared in Mina, after the appearance of refrigeration devices that freeze meat and preserve it from rotting and spoilage. The month of Dhul-Hijjah, which is spent by pilgrims in Mina, is also known as the numbered days.
The work of the days of Tashreeq
The first day of al-Tashreeq is known as the Day of Resurrection, and it is called that because the pilgrim resides and stays there in Mina, throwing stones at the Jamarat starting from the small Jamarat to the middle and then the greater.
The second day of the days of al-Tashreeq is known as the first departure day, because it is permissible for the pilgrim to hurry and flee from Mina after stoning Jamarat al-Aqaba al-Wusta, and to go to the Great Mosque of Mecca to perform the farewell circumambulation, which is the last of the rites of Hajj, provided that the departure from Mina is before sunset.
The third day of the days of al-Tashreeq is known as the second departure day, on which those who are not in a hurry throw the three Jamarat before leaving Mina, so named as an indication that whoever hastened and left Mina in two days, there is no sin on him, and whoever is late will not have any sin on him.
