Step by step guide to performing hajj and Umra the right way - part 3

By Edited Jul 9, 2014 2 2

Visiting the city of the Prophet(sal) (S)

As one reaches the city of the Prophet(sal), the land which he migrated to, preached the religion of Allah, brought success to it, spread it to all the corners of the world, and where his (sal) demise took place and his grave is situated it is desirable to visit it. It is recommended to have a complete shower and wear clean clothes. It is also recommended to send blessings to the Prophet excessively and pray two rakahs of salah. Then one goes towards the grave, facing it, looking at the lower portion and sending peace to the Prophet (sal). One does the same to the graves of Abu Bakr and Umar (ral).

How to make up for faulting in hajj?

If one enters the state of ihram with the intention of Tamattu or Qiran, or if one leaves out an obligatory act one has to perform the first option as listed below, if unable to do so, he resorts to the next option and so on.

  • Slaughtering a goat
  • Giving the food that could be purchased at the price of the goat in charity
  • Fasting for ten days. The best is to fast three while in Hajj and the remainder after he returns home.

If one does not stop by Arafat for at least a moment, one has to do all the following

  • Slaughtering a goat, if not possible then fasting for ten days
  • Then perform the actions of Umrah and come out of the status of ihram and return home
  • Perform Hajj again next year

If one leaves out an essential part of hajj except stopping by Arafat, one has to do that particular action, whenever he can, before returning home.

vIf one hunts during the state of ihram, one has the choice to do any one of the following

  • Slaughtering the same kind of animal one had hunted or an animal similar to it in form, except if it is a pigeon and it’s like, where it is obligatory to slaughter a goat and nothing less
  • Giving the food that could be purchased at the price of the compensation, in charity
  • Fasting a day for every 600gs of the food purchasable

If one does any of the prohibited actions during ihram pertaining to women one has to perform the first option as listed below, if unable to do so, he resorts to the next option and so on.

  • Slaughtering a camel, a cow or seven goats
  • Giving the food that could be purchased at the price of the camel, in charity
  • Fasting a day for every 600g of the food purchasable

If one does the prohibited actions in the state of ihram except the actions pertaining to women and hunting, one has the choice to do any of the following

  • Slaughtering a goat
  • Giving 7.2 kgs in charity for six needy people
  • Fasting for three days

If one is prevented from performing hajj after entering the state of ihram, one has to perform the first option as listed below, if unable to do so, he resorts to the next option and so on.

  • Giving 7.2 kgs of food in charity for six needy people
  • Fasting a day for every 600gs of the food purchasable

If one leaves Arafat before sunset on the 9th of Zul-Hijjah he may do like the one who entered the state of ihram with the intention of doing Tamattu or Qiran.

The slaughtering and the charity mentioned above should be carried out inside the sacred boundaries. But one can fast wherever he wishes. All the above are obligatory upon the particular individual who does the fault, except the last, which is only desirable.

PLEASE REMEMBER TO MAKE DUA FOR ME, THOSE WHO HELPED IN COMPILING THIS AND MY FAMILY.
