  • Whether pebbles thrown in accepted Hajj are lifted to heaven Date: 3-1-2018

    Assalaamu alaykum. I recently heard in a lecture that one of the signs of an accepted Hajj is that the stones which you throw at the Jamaraat (pillars) are lifted and taken by Allah, meaning that they disappear. Of course, there is no way for us to find out, but I have not been able to find any hadith on it yet. The purpose for asking is to teach my.. More

    Assalaamu alaykum wa rahmatullaahi wa barakaatuhu, Shaykh. I have pain in my heels and knees. Is it permissible for me (being a woman) to use a hoverboard wheel that exists these days? Families use these to go to the park and so on? (Please note, praise be to Allaah, that I am covered from head to toe and wear a loose abaya). Also, can I use it in Makkah.. More

    Assalaamu alaykum. We were selected as Hajj Assistants to assist the Indian Hajj Mission in Saudi Arabia in facilitating the Hajj pilgrims to perform Hajj smoothly.

    Assalaamu alaykum wa rahmatullaahi wa barakaatuhu. I am a man who has embraced Islam. I have been intensely studying and researching about Islam and all its sciences for years.

  • Expiation for not throwing Jamaraat in Hajj Date: 10-10-2016

    Assalaamu alaykum. I made Hajj in 2010, but I have been wondering if I sufficiently completed the rituals for it to be considered valid. The key point in question is that I only pelted the Jamaraat in Mina on the first day after Muzdalifah. I was very tired from the walk from Muzdalifah to Mina and then to Mecca. There was a person hired by our group.. More

  • Giving up throwing pebbles on second day of Tashreeq and spending its night at Mina out of ignorance Date: 25-8-2016

    My father performed Hajj in the early 1980s i.e. nearly twenty-seven years ago. Having acted in throwing the pebbles upon what he understood from Allaah’s saying (what means): {Then whoever hastens [his departure] in two days – there is no sin upon him} [Quran 2:203], he threw the pebbles on the first and second days of 'Eid rather than on the first..

  • Ritual purity not condition for standing at ‘Arafah and Muzdalifah Date: 25-8-2016

    While I was standing at ‘Arafah during my Hajj last year, my Ihram (ritual state assumed for consecration) clothing was affected by impurity in the toilet. When I came out, I saw the impurity and was too shy to wash it away before the people – may Allaah forgive us and you too. Now I am regretful for that behavior. I performed the prayers with the..

  • Tawaaf Al-Ifadhah in Qiran Hajj applies to both Hajj and ‘Umrah Date: 25-8-2016

  • Guidance of Prophet, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, in ending Ihram Date: 25-8-2016

    After throwing Jamrat Al-‘Aqabah on the day of Nahr, somebody was standing on the other side with scissors in his hand with which he was cutting the hair of the pilgrims – a single hair from each side. Is that valid, or is a sacrifice due on him? This happened many years ago, so what is your opinion? .. More

  • Someone who has not performed farewell Tawaaf and is unable to offer Hady Date: 24-8-2016

    You have previously given me a Fatwa indicating that a sheep is due on me to be slaughtered and distributed on the poor inhabitants of Makkah because my farewell Tawaaf (circumambulation) was invalid. Now, however, I am unable to do it because I have returned to my country outside Saudi Arabia. Is there any other possible expiation? .. More

  • Interrupting Tawaaf and Sa‘y to offer prayer Date: 24-8-2016

    Out of ignorance of the fact that the prayer interrupts the round of Tawaaf (circumambulation), whenever I interrupted it for prayer, I would resume it from wherever I ended. This happened with me many times, of which I remember that I interrupted Tawaaf Al-Ifadhah for the Maghrib prayer and interrupted a round of Sa‘y (going back and forth) between.. More
