Some pilgrims pay money to some charitable institutions who slaughter the hadi (sacrificial animals) and distribute it all over the world. What is the ruling on this action?
Dear scholars, As-Salamu `alaykum. What is the difference between fidyah (ransom) and hadi (sacrificial animal) in Hajj? Jazakum Allah khayran!
As-salamu `alaykum. In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful. All praise and thanks are due to Allah Alone, and peace and blessings be upon His Messenger Muhammad.Last year, I made my sincere intention to perform Hajj & Umrah and by the will of Allah (swt) I was able to. Everything went fine until the last day where I found my self in the middle of stampede. Unable to get myself out if it, and with my last breath I was peacefully awaiting Allah(swt) to terminate my stay in this world, and while my lips, mind and heart were praising Allah(swt) and testifying to the Oneness of Allah (swt), I was also asking Allah(swt) to take me out of my trouble/test. I was not able to help myself, I was injured and had no strength at all. Allah's(swt) help came. I don't know how, but I got out, then gathered strength and finished throwing the pebbles. Howerever, the pain in body parts especially the ribs were increasing as my body cooled down and after about 1 hour I could almost not move and needed help to move around, and I was unable to perform the farewell tawaf. My group guide adviced that I should have an animal sacrificed next year/hajj. (This may sound weird to many, but those last seconds were the most peacefull moments I have ever had) Dear brother, would you please advice based on my events. Is my Hajj valid? Is the group guide correct in saying that I can wait until next Hajj for sacrifice? Do I have to go again to perform the sacrifice myself? How big shall the animal be? Any other related advice is appreciated. Wa Salamu `alaykum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh.
My mother, my wife and I did umra, however, forgot to trim our hair. Later all of us removed our ahram. My wife and I also enjoyed our conjugal rights. However, my mother is an old lady and a widow. Next morning when we remembered, we trimmed our hair as normal. Please tell us: 1. If each one of us has to sacrifice a goat (give "dumm") 2. Whether such sacrifice to atone for mistakes in umra have to be done in Makkah? or they can be done in Jeddah or in Pakistan. 3. Who can eat this sacrifical meat.
What is the difference between Hady for one performing Tamattu Hajj & Udhiyah
Asak, I had to travel from Atlanta to India. But one of my friends suggested that I should make a stop over at Jeddah and apply for transit visa for Saudi. I took his advice and applied and alhmd. i got the transit visa. But during this process (as everything happened last minute) I delayed making aggrangements for Ihram for me and my Family and I tried to find them and inquired with my friends and family if they had any Ihrams. But none of this gave any results. I had no choice to proceed without Ihram for jeddah. But after reaching Jeddah, I bought ahram there and wore it. Just to let you the main intention for the stop over at jeddah was Umrah. Do I have to give Dumm for my mistake?? Please advice me. Thank You
