He proceeded from `Arafah after `Asr Prayer

Q 2: About fifteen years ago, I performed Hajj along with my wife and one of my children. We entered Ihram (the ritual state for Hajj and Umrah) from the Miqat (site for entering the ritual state for Hajj and Umrah) on the morning of the Day of Tarwiyah (8th of Dhul-Hijjah) and then proceeded to Makkah and made Tawaf (circumambulation of the Ka`bah) and Sa`y (going between Safa and Marwah). After that, we headed for Mina in the afternoon where we spent the night. After Fajr (Dawn) Prayer, we headed for `Arafah and stood at `Arafah until after Zawal (midday) and then offered `Asr (Afternoon) Prayer and headed for Muzdalifah where we spent the night. In the morning, we headed for Jamarat-ul-`Aqabah (the closest pebble-throwing area to Makkah), threw the pebbles (at the pebble-throwing area during Hajj), shaved our heads and went to Makkah where we made Tawaf-ul-Ifadah (final obligatory circumambulation of the Ka`bah in Hajj), returned to Mina, threw the pebbles and spent the night there. After throwing the pebbles on the twelfth of Dhul-Hijjah, we went to Makkah and performed Tawaf-ul-Wada` (circumambulation of the Ka`bah upon leaving Makkah) and then returned to our area to the south of Al-Ta'if . After all this period, I started thinking about the Hajj that we performed and our intentions for the rituals and whether we had intended to make Ifrad Hajj (performing Hajj only) or Qiran hajj (combining Hajj and Umrah without a break in between) but could not remember. However, I have slight suspicions that we intended to perform Ifrad Hajj because we slaughtered (Part No. 10; Page No. 180

A 2: If the case is indeed as mentioned in the question, that you departed from `Arafah after `Asr Prayer and headed to Muzdalifah, then you must slaughter a sheep that fulfills the specifications of an Ud-hiyah (sacrificial animal offered by non-pilgrims) for each one of you and you should slaughter in Makkah and distribute the meat among its poor because you neglected a Wajib (obligatory) act of Hajj which is standing at `Arafah until sunset.As for your doubts on the form of Hajj you had intended to perform, and whether it was Ifrad Hajj or Qiran Hajj, then what is apparent is that you intended to perform Ifrad Hajj and there is nothing on you in that regard. However, each one of you is to perform the obligatory Umrah if you had not already done so and if you did not perform one afterwards. The reason for this is that a Muslim must perform Hajj and Umrah whenever he is capable of performing them and anything other than that is voluntary.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
