TALBA

Forgot to Make Talbiyah for Tamattu’ Hajj
Question#14


A pilgrim has put on ihram at the miqat but he forgot to say talbiyah for Tamattu’ Hajj. Should he complete his rites as a Mutamatti’? What should he do if he takes off his ihram, and puts on the ihram for Hajj from Mecca?


If he has made an intention for ‘Umrah when he put on the ihram but he forgot to say talbiyah while he was intending for ‘Umrah, he will be considered as one who uttered talbiyah. He has to perform tawaf, sa’i and cutting the hair, then he takes off his ihram. It is permissible for him to say talbiyah on the way. If he did not say talbiyah then there is nothing required of him because the saying of talbiyah is only a confirmed Sunnah. He makes tawaf, sa’i, has his hair cut and makes it ‘Umrah. This is because he had intention for ‘Umrah. If he has made intention for Hajj while putting on the ihram and the time is enough, it is preferable for him to change his pilgrimage to ‘Umrah. After that, he makes tawaf, sa’i, has a haircut and then takes off the ihram. Praise be to Allah, he will be considered as a Mutamatti’.

Starting the Stay in Muzdalifah Before The First Half of The Night
Question#20


What is the ruling about (starting) the stay in Muzdalifah before the first half (of the night)?


It is obligatory upon the one performing the Hajj to spend the tenth (10th) of Dhul-Hijjah until (the time of) Fajr, except for the one who has an excuse such as illness or the like. So it is permissible for him or whoever has undertaken responsibility for him to depart to Mina after half the night has passed in accordance with the Prophet (peace be upon him) having the spent the night there until (the time of ) Fajr and him having granted those with a (legal) excuse to depart from Muzdalifah to Mina after half the night (had passed).

Unable to Find a Place to Rest in Muzdalifah
Question#21


What of the one performing Hajj being unable to find a place (to rest) in Muzdalifah during the night of Eid. What is the ruling?


Whoever is unable to find a place (to rest) in Muzdalifah, then that which is clear is that there is nothing required of him because all obligatory acts are ‘forgiven’ if one is unable to perform them (subject to Islamically acceptable conditions).

Departed From ‘Arafah Before Sunset Due to Work Commitments
Question#15


What is the ruling regarding one who made the Hajj and then departed from ‘Arafah before sunset due to his work commitments?


According to a majority of the People of Knowledge, the one who departed from ‘Arafah before sunset is required to make fidyah (ransom) except if he were able to return there during the night, then the fidyah (ransom) is not required. And the fidyah (ransom) is to perform a sacrifice and distribute it to the poor and needy in Mecca.

The Day of ‘Arafah (9 Dhul-Hijjah) Falling on a Friday
Question#16


Some people say that if the Day of ‘Arafah (9 Dhul-Hijjah) falls on a Friday, then it is as if someone has performed 7 Hajjs (i.e. he is rewarded as having done so). Is there any evidence from the Sunnah regarding this?


There is no authentic evidence regarding this. (However), some people (also) believe this equates to (having performed) 70 Hajjs or 72 Hajjs, and this is also incorrect. And with Allah lies all success and may Allah send prayers and salutations upon our Prophet (peace be upon him) and his family and his companions.

Offering Supererogatory Prayers After Dhuhr & Asr Prayers
Question#17


Is it permissible for the one performing Hajj to perform supererogatory prayers after having offered Dhuhr and Asr with the imam on the Day of ‘Arafah (9 Dhul-Hijjah) until the time of sunset?


The Messenger (peace be upon him) did not perform any supererogatory prayers on the Day of ‘Arafah after having offered Dhuhr and Asr prayers combined and at the time of Zhuhr (jam’u taqdim). And if it was legislated then he would have been more careful about performing them than us, and good and all good is in adhering to following his Sunnah. And with Allah lies all success and may Allah send prayers and salutations upon our Prophet (peace be upon him) and his family and his companions.

Calling Jabal ‘Arafah Jabal ar-Rahmah
Question#18


They call Jabal ‘Arafah (Mount of ‘Arafah) Jabal ar-Rahmah (Mount of Mercy), so what is the ruling regarding this name and is there any basis for this?


I do not know of any basis for this name from the Sunnah, that the mount which is in ‘Arafah at which the Prophet (peace be upon him) stood is called Jabal ar-Rahmah. If there is no basis for it in the Sunnah then it is not befitting to apply this (name) to it. Those who have applied this name, then they have possibly observed that this is a great (standing) place which is recognized as a place of Allah’s Forgiveness and Mercy for those standing upon it in ‘Arafah. Therefore, they named it such. So that which is better is to not call it by this name, rather, call it Jabal ‘Arafah, or the mount at which the Prophet (peace be upon him) stood or that which is similar to this.

Visiting Jabal ‘Arafah Either Before Hajj or Afterwards
Question#19


Some pilgrims visit Jabal ‘Arafah before performing the Hajj or afterwards and pray upon it (at the peak). What is the ruling regarding visiting Jabal ‘Arafah and what is the ruling regarding praying upon it?


Its ruling is as is known from the Shari’ah ruling and that is that anyone who worships Allah in a manner that has not been legislated, then he is an innovator. So it is known from this that he who has intended to pray on Jabal ‘Arafah or at the bottom or just touch it or similar to this, which some people do, is an innovation which is disliked and frowned upon. It is said to him: There is nothing special about this mount except that it is a Sunnah for a person to stand at the rocks on the Day of ‘Arafah (9th of Dhul-Hijjah), just as the Prophet (peace be upon him) stood at it. The Prophet (peace be upon him) stood near the rocks and said:

((I have stood here, however, all of ‘Arafah is a standing place)), [Sahih Muslim].

So based upon this, it is also not befitting for a person to cause difficulty for himself on the Day of ‘Arafah by going to the mount and possibly causing difficulty for his people. Thus, getting tired from the heat and thirst , by doing so, is sinning because he has caused difficulty in a matter which Allah has not made obligatory for him.

Stayed In Mina Until Midnight Then Left for Mecca & Did Not Return Until After Fajr
Question#22


What is the ruling regarding one who remains in Mina until midnight, then leaves for Mecca and does not return until after Fajr?


If the time is midnight, then that is the middle of the night in Mina and in that case there is no harm in leaving Mina after this time, even though it is better to remain in Mina the day and night. However, if the time is midnight before the middle of the night, then do not leave because the condition for remaining in Mina is to spend most of the night there as has been mentioned by our Fuqaha., may Allah have Mercy upon them.

Doing Rami on 11th Day of Dhul-Hijjah, Then the Tawaf Before Traveling
Question#23


What is the ruling concerning one who does rami on the 11th day (of Dhul-Hijjah), then makes the Tawaf al-Wada’ around the House (Ka’bah) before traveling?


If he does rami on the 11th day (of Dhul-Hijjah), then makes the Tawaf al-Wada’ around the House (Ka’bah) and then travels, he has neglected two obligations (upon him) and they are the rami of the jamarat on the 12th day (of Dhul-Hijjah) and remaining in Mina the night prior to the 12th day (of Dhul-Hijjah). So he is, therefore, required to make two fidyah’s (as compensation) according to what many people of knowledge have said, so he must slaughter them in Mecca and donate it there.
