I performed the rituals of `Umrah (lesser Pilgrimage) during the blessed month of Ramadan but I made three rounds of Tawaf (circumambulation of the Ka`bah) between
Hijr Isma`il (short semi-circular wall adjacent to the Ka`bah and considered part of it) and the Ka`bah.
I was ignorant of the Hijr being from
and that it is not permissible to make the Tawaf between it and
Then, I made Sa`y (going between Safa and Marwah during Hajj and `Umrah) and Tahallul (removal of the ritual state for Hajj and `Umrah) from `Umrah. I hope that you will illustrate for me what is obligatory on me.
You have to wear the garment of Ihram (clothing worn during the ritual state for Hajj and `Umrah) again and return to
Makkah to perform `Umrah anew by doing the Tawaf (circumambulation of the Ka`bah) and Sa`y (going between Safa and Marwah during Hajj and `Umrah) and shortening your hair. If you had sexual intercourse during this period, your `Umrah is spoiled. That is to say that you have to do what we mentioned and to return to the Miqat (site for entering the ritual state for Hajj or `Umrah) from which you assumed the Ihram (ritual state for Hajj or `Umrah) after completing your invalid `Umrah to start another `Umrah in place of the invalid one. After performing it, you should slaughter a sheep meeting the same conditions for Ud-hiyah (sacrificial animal offered by non-pilgrims) for the sexual intercourse that you had. You should slaughter it in
Makkah and distribute it among its poor people.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
