I came from
to perform `Umrah (lesser pilgrimage) in the days of Hajj without having the intention of performing Hajj unless I was to perform it on behalf of someone in return for a wage. Days later, I performed Hajj and then `Umrah on behalf
of someone. I asked whether I have to offer Hady (sacrificial animal offered by pilgrims) or not. Some scholars are of the view that it is obligatory upon me to offer Hady even if I performed `Umrah for myself and Hajj on behalf of someone else. Other scholars are of the view that it is not obligatory upon me to offer Hady as I performed Ifrad Hajj (performing Hajj only) on behalf of someone else and the `Umrah which I performed has nothing to do with the Hajj I performed on behalf of the other person. Please guide me in this regard.
If the situation is as you have mentioned, that you have performed `Umrah without having the intention to perform Hajj unless you perform it on behalf of someone else, then you performed Hajj on behalf of someone, you should offer Hady. This applies even if you were not certain of performing Hajj when you were performing your `Umrah and even if you were performing `Umrah for yourself and Hajj on behalf of someone else, for the general meaning of 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
Allah has included whoever intends to perform Hajj (Part No. 11; Page No. 368) when performing `Umrah and whoever did not intend Hajj while performing `Umrah. He (Exalted be He) also included whoever performs Hajj and `Umrah for themselves and also whoever performs `Umrah for themselves and Hajj on behalf of someone else. Allah (Exalted be He) considers this Tamattu` Hajj (`Umrah during the months of Hajj followed by Hajj in the same year with a break in between) and therefore, a Hady should be offered.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
