Q 1: What is the ruling on someone who performs obligatory Hajj without performing many obligatory things such as, neglecting to assume Ihram (ritual state for Hajj and `Umrah) from Miqat (sites for entering the ritual state for Hajj and `Umrah for Hajj and `Umrah), and not spending the night in
Is offering one sacrifice sufficient for both obligations that they did not perform? Or Should they offer two sacrifices?
A: They should offer one sacrifice which will suffice both obligations. They should not eat from the meat of this sacrifice, but it should be distributed to the poor in Al-Haram. If they can not afford the sacrifice, they should fast for ten days for not performing the first obligation and another ten days for not performing the second.
Q 4: Concerning the sacrifice that should be offered by a person who did not perform some of the obligations of Hajj, is it different from the Hady (sacrificial animal offered by pilgrims) offered during Tamattu` Hajj (`Umrah during the months of Hajj followed by Hajj in the same year with a break in between) mentioned in Allah's Saying:
Then if you are in safety and whosoever performs the ‘Umrah in the months of Hajj, before (performing) the Hajj, (i.e. Hajj-at-Tamattu‘ and Al-Qirân), he must slaughter a Hady such as he can afford
? If so, is it permissible for a pilgrim to give the Hady's price in charity to a poor person? If they may, is it permissible for the recipient to spend this money on himself or his family instead of buying and slaughtering the Hady?
A: Whoever does not perform one of the obligations of Hajj and `Umrah should offer a sacrifice. It may be one seventh of a she-camel or cow or one sheep that will suffice Ud-hiyah. It should be slaughtered in
Makkah and distributed to the poor in al-Haram. It is impermissible to give its price in charity as it goes against what Allah has ordered.
Q 5: Is it permissible for a person who should offer a sacrifice to delay this act until they arrive at their home town? (Part No. 11; Page No. 343) When are they allowed to begin offering the sacrifice and when is the deadline of offering it?
A: If the person who did not perform one of the Hajj obligations can not afford the sacrifice, they are to fast for ten days; three days during Hajj and seven days after their return to their home. They should begin offering the sacrifice immediately after omitting the obligation whether it is before or after `Eid-ul-Adha (the Festival of the Sacrifice). There is no deadline set for offering it, but when offering the sacrifice is within their ability, they should hasten to offer it. When they delay offering the sacrifice until their arrival to their hometown, offering the sacrifice in their home town will not be sufficient. They should buy the sacrificial animal and slaughter it in Al-Haram and distribute its meat to the poor there. It is permissible to authorize a reliable person to do this on their behalf.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings of Allah be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family and Companions.
