Stay at Mina - Hajj And Umrah Guide



AlSafar Hajj and Umrah Guide
to help you prepare for the sacred pilgrimage...


247. After completing the Ramy of Jamratul Aqabah on the 10th of Dhul Hijjah, pilgrims make an animal sacrifice. A pilgrim is required to offer two sacrifices; one for Hajj or as thanksgiving, which is Wajib on every Qarin and Mutamatti and Mustahabb for a Mufrid, and the other for Idul Adha, which is Wajib every year on those who can afford it. But if the pilgrim is a Musafir and had not stayed in Makkah for 15 days or more, prior to 8th of Dhul Hijjah, it is not Wajib on him, but Mustahabb.

This sacrifice for Idul Adha can be offered back at home as well, and the pilgrim while going on Hajj, may leave instructions to this effect.

248. A Qarin or Mutamatti when he offers sacrifice for Hajj, must form the specific Niyyah for it, otherwise the offering will not be valid.

If an agent is appointed to do it, he should be specifically told to offer the sacrifice for this purpose.

249. Rasulullah offered sacrifice on his own behalf and on behalf of his entire Ummah. Therefore, those who can afford it should offer a sacrifice on his behalf as well.


250. After sacrifice, the Mutamatti and the Qarin should, without further delay, get their heads shaved or get the hair cut short. For details see Serial Nos. 162,163, 164 and 165.

251. For those who perform Hajj, it is Sunnah to get their heads shaved or get their hair cut short in Mina. It is also Sunnah to turn their faces towards Ka’bah while having this ritual shaving, and to begin shaving from the right side of the head.

252. It is Wajib that a Mufrid should first perform Ramy and then have his head shaved or hair cut short.

253. According to the Hanafi school of Fiqh, it is Wajib that a Mutamatti or a Qarin performs Ramy first, then offers sacrifice, and then has his head shaved or hair cut short. The sequence of these three acts is imperative, and Rasulullah performed these acts in this very order.

254. If sacrifice has been arranged through an agent, either an individual or an organization, a pilgrim should make sure that it is offered at the given time. If it has not been offered at the appointed time, and he gets his head shaved or hair cut short, Dam will be incumbent on him for violating the rules mentioned at Serial No. 253 above.

255. After ritual shaving all the prohibitions placed by Ihram, for example to use perfume, to trim nails, to cut hair, to wear stitched garments, to cover head and face, come to end and the pilgrim relinquishes Ihram, except the conjugal relations that are permitted after Tawafuz Ziyarah.
