Jabal Rahmah

Mountain in Mecca

Known as the Mountain of Mercy, this granite hill is an important part of performing hajj as pilgrims leave Mina for Arafat on the ninth day to recite the Quran and pray. The Prophet gave his last sermon at the site shortly before his death. Stairs leading to the hill’s peak provide relatively easy access. Vendors may be selling markers here, but be aware that writing names on the hillside is illegal.
