My wife asked me an interesting question: Did any of the female Companions of the Prophet ever slaughter an animal during the `Eid? Is this proof that women can slaughter an animal if indeed any of the female Companions ever slaughtered?
As-salamu `alaykum. I performed `Umrah in Shawwal, then I returned to my home city. Meanwhile, I intend to perform the obligation of Hajj this year. Do I have to make the sacrifice? Jazakom Allahu khayran.
Dear scholars, As-salamu `alaykum. How should the meat of udhiyah (sacrifice) be shared out?
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.
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
