Weather of Arabia - At a time coinciding with the beginning of the spring season, on Tuesday, February 20, 2024 , the Earth witnessed a new period of popular traditions related to the Pentecost of Winter , as this season begins with the fall of the three embers, which are the embers of air, water, and earth, which heralds the arrival of spring and a gradual rise in temperatures.

 

What is the story of the Three Jamarat?

In the language, an ember means a burning piece of coal or wood whose fire is still burning. The name “embers” comes from an ancient tradition dating back to what happens in nature when warmth begins to emerge from the ground. The falling of ember is considered an indication of the end of the period of extreme cold that prevails during the month. January and February, and the warmth gradually begins to spread.

 

When is the date of the fall of the three Jamarat?

The three Jamrats, which are the Jamarat of Air, Water, and Earth, are considered part of this ancient folk tradition, and the fall of each Jamarat occurs on specific dates:

  • The first ember , which is the ember of the air, falls on February 20 , and people feel the warmth of the air.
  • The second ember , the ember of water, falls on February 27 , and people feel the warmth of the water.
  • The third ember , the ember of the earth, falls on March 6 , and people feel the warmth of the earth.

Scientifically, the timing of the fall of the first ember is linked to changes in the rate of the Earth’s absorption of solar radiation compared to its own radiation, as the Earth begins to absorb more heat than it loses after February 20 , with the daylight hours clearly increasing.
