. It is a symbolic reenactment of Abraham’s hajj, where he stoned three pillars representing the temptation to disobey God and preserve Ishmael.
On Eid al-Adha (the 10th day of the month of Dhu al-Hijjah), pilgrims must strike each of the three jamarat with seven pebbles. After the stoning is completed on the day of Eid, every pilgrim must cut or shave their hair.
On each of the following two days, they must hit each of the three walls with seven pebbles, going in order from east to west. Thus at least 49 pebbles are needed for the ritual, more if some throws miss.
