Full Meaning of Mozdalifa

Mozdalifa is an indirect Quranic name for girls that refers to a place between Mount Arafah and Mina, which the pilgrims pass through during Haj proceedings. Mozdalifa is derived from the Z-L-F Quranic root which has meanings of “closeness”, “nearness” (opposite “distance”). It is said that Mozdalifa was named such due to its closeness to Mount Arafah.

Below is an example of the use of the Z-L-F root in the Quran:

We forgave him his sins. His reward will be nearness to Us, a good place to return to. (Quran 38:25)
