On the 10th day, starting at dawn the pilgrims circulate back to Mina Valley.
Three pillars stand at the center of Mina Valley. In the next three days each pilgrim will pass by them three separate times, performing a rite called the Stoning, in which you cast small pebbles at a series of three pillars representing Satan. This athletic activity engages each pilgrim, physically and symbolically, in resisting temptation and warding off wrong.
At Mina pilgrims are free to exchange the Hajj garments for their usual dress. Many mark this transition by having their hair cut.
Now a three-day feast begins to celebrate the end of Hajj. Muslims around the world join in this celebration.
During this period pilgrims may return again to Mecca. Before leaving the city for home, they perform the seven turns around the Kabah one last time. The formal Hajj is completed now. It is up to each pilgrim to carry its spirit back home.
