Ritual 427

If it becomes obligatory on a person to spend the night in Mina, it is not necessary for him to spend the whole of the following day there also. He needs to stay just long enough to perform rami of the three Jamarat.

Nor is it obligatory to spend the entire night there; it is enough to remain there from the beginning of the night till a little after midnight, or from a little before midnight till dawn.

It is preferable that he should spend the first half of the night there but must not enter Makkah before sunrise, as a matter of preferred precaution.
