Arafat, Station on

Arafat, Station On It is laid down as one of the' most important 'practices to be observed by the Mohammedans who go on pilgrimages to Mecca that on the ninth day of the last month of the Arabian year, called Dhu' Chaija, the pilgrims must resort to Mount Arafat, in the vicinity of Mecca, to perform their devotions. The Mohammedans have a tradition that Adam and Eve, after they were turned out of Paradise, were separated for a hundred and twenty years, and that at last, as they were in search of each other, they met on the top of this mountain and recognised each other, to their mutual delight.
