Q 1: Is it permissible to slaughter the Hady (sacrificial animal offered by pilgrims) outside Makkah, i.e. in the homeland of the person who is performing Hajj?

A: The place where the Hady should be slaughtered is the sanctuary of Makkah, so the Hady for all types of Hajj should be slaughtered inside Makkah. It is not permissible to slaughter it in the homeland of the person performing Hajj outside (Part No. 11; Page No. 381)  Makkah. This is permissible only if the sacrificial animals allocated for Hady are about to perish before arriving in Makkah. In this case, it should be slaughtered wherever it is which will be sufficient. The same ruling goes for Al-Muhsar (a person who intends Hajj or `Umrah but can not because of an obstacle or hindrance), he should slaughter his sacrificial animal wherever he is hindered.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
