Dr. Marawan Shahin, Professor of Hadith and its Sciences, Faculty of Usul Ad-Din (Theology), Al-Azhar Univ. states: “If a muslim dies during hajj and having stood at `Arafah, then he/she has performed Hajj and will be resurrected on the Day of Judgment while reciting talbiyah. The same will be the case insha’ Allah if a muslim assumed ihram even before the day of tarwiyah (8th dhul Hijjah). May Allah reward every muslim and grant us happiness in this worldly life and in the Hereafter.

Allah Almighty knows best.
