The shape of sand and rock that vast and uninhabited hills, surrounded by a stone in the shape of a half circle. Every Hajj ahead of the 9th Dzulhijjah Arafat arriving Muslims from all over the world to perform the wuquf. Pilgrims have performed the wuquf uncountable since slipping the Sun 9th Dzulhijjah until dawn the 10th Dzulhijjah.

Wuquf also is the culmination of the Hajj should be carried out in the field of ‘ Arafah and should be the 9th Dzulhijah. The Prophet said, ‘ Haji was present at Arafat. Whoever comes on the eve of the 10th Dzulhijah before dawn, he was still getting the ‘ Hajj.
At the time we wuquf prepared for worship, prayer, remembrance, prayer. We need to do some introspection, contemplation, considering how much weight your own reward and how did the weight of the sins we have done so far.

f. Maintaining health with attention to eating, drinking and consuming vitamins increase power.
g. Maintain an atmosphere of silence and to always wuquf session now ‘.
