Q579 :Rukn: the basic definition of

A579 : An action may be a rukn of an overall obligatory action. When it is omitted, the whole action is rendered invalid. We say, for example, that attendance at Arafat on the ninth day of Thul-Hajjah is a rukn of pilgrimage. If a person does all the other duties of pilgrimage without reaching Arafat before dawn of the following day, which is the time limit for pilgrimage attendance, he has not met this rukn and, therefore, he has not offered the pilgrimage.
