Q: 68 – Title: I covered my head for an hour while in ihraam, what do I have to do now?

Question

One of my friend is in makkah to perform hajj, in makkah he has performed umrah, after that he want to to  do  one more, he will  go  to  masjid e isha make a neyat of umrah and forget to leave the  cap, from masjid e isha to harm cap is on his  head and after a hour he know  about that and  we put off it, please tell us about that and is there is a kaffara or dum or astagfar wajib on him?, please guide us, your urgent reply  will be highly appriciated

Answer

In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullahi wa-barakatuh.

Since the covering (hat, cap, etc) was on the head for less than a day in  the state of Ihraam, your friend will have to give Sadaqah equivalent to the amount of Sadaqat-ul-Fitr. The Sadaqah is due whether your friend covered his head forgetfully or on purpose.1

There is no damm (sacrifical animal) due in this case.2

And Allah knows best.

How do I prevent urine drops while wearing ihram? Can I pray qad?’ prayers after I pray my fard ‘Asr? PDF Print E-mail

Q: 67 – Title: How do I prevent urine drops while wearing ihram? Can I pray qad?’ prayers after I pray my fard ‘Asr?

Question

1. InshaAllah, I will be going for Hajj this year, but I have some issues.  I am not sure whether I am classified as a ma’dhur or not.  I do know that, after urinating, some drops do come out every so often.  I tend to do wudu’ at every fard salah.  How should I stay in the state of ihram, as I normally put toilet paper under my undergarments and change before performing wud?’ before every salah.  Obviously, I will not be wearing any undergarment and, as a result, cannot place toilet paper as it will not just stay there.  I would be grateful if you can kindly help.

2. I am in the process of making up for approximately thirteen years of missed salah.  Someone told me that I cannot perform the missed qada’ salah after ‘Asr.  But, based on the question you have answered for others, my understanding is that you are not allowed to perform any qada’ salah only during the times of sunrise, sunset, and zawal.  Please clarify if you mean around ten minutes for each.  So, can I, for example, pray ‘Asr fard salah and, after that, perform ‘Asr qada’ or any other fard qada’ salah?  This is sometimes easier to do so, especially during the summer months when the days are longer.

Answer

In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Mericful

As-salamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullahi wa-barakatuh.

1. After relieving yourself, it is necessary for you to practice istibra’, i.e. taking the appropriate actions to ensure all urine has exited the body.  Some people stand and walk, while others simply shake their lower body.  Different people need to adapt different methods depending on their bodies [i].  Despite istibra’, if you still experience urine drops, you may use one or more piece of clothing underneath your ihram that is not stitched to the shape of the body [ii].

2. It is permissible to make qada’ prayers after praying your fard ‘Asr prayer, as long as the makruh time before sunset has not entered.  This makruh time starts with the yellowing of the sun such that it loses its intensity, making it easy for one to look directly at it [iii]

I was wondering if I could concentrate on clearing family debts and other expenses for now and do Hajj next year with my family. And if I do go to Hajj this year alone, do I have to leave work if I can’t get a holiday? PDF Print E-mail

Q: 65 – Title: I was wondering if I could concentrate on clearing family debts and other expenses for now and do Hajj next year with my family. And if I do go to Hajj this year alone, do I have to leave work if I can’t get a holiday?
Question
My wife and me are both working in two separate countries as the current situation warrants this for the time being. Since she can cover her own expenses I normally help her pay any leftover debts. And I have alhamdulillah managed to clear my own debts too now, but some of her debt still remains. I tend to give a fair portion of my earnings to help her.
Since I’ve cleared my own debts, I have begun to save a little without intending to. As it happens, I have enough money for me to go to Hajj this year. I work full time and I didn’t plan for this situation, so it’s very unlikely to get a holiday now. My plan was to go next year inshallah.

In the name of All?h, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Assal?mu ?alaykum wa Rahmatull?hi Wabarak?tuh

If you have surplus money that is sufficient for you to perform Haj, then Haj is compulsory upon you.

You should endeavour to perform Haj this year. If you are unable to do so, you should do so next year. Should you pass away before next year, you will have to make a wasiyat for Hajj e Badal on your behalf to be fulfilled from 1/3rd of your estate after burrial expenses and debts.

Question

can i perform fard haj on behalf of my father who died in india assuming ahram from saudi arabia?can i meet the expenses from my money and can later on take the expenses once i reach india after completing haj?

Answer

In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Assalamu 'alaykum wa Rahmatullahi Wabarakatuh

If a person passes away, leaving behind so much of wealth that after paying all his debts, there is sufficient wealth to fulfill the bequest of hajj e badal, then it will be wajib on the inheritors of the estate to fulfill this bequest from one third of his wealth. However, if this wealth is not sufficient, then it is permissible for the heirs of the estate to assist in fulfilling this bequest.

It will be permissible for you as the son to perform hajj on behalf of your father with your own wealth and later on claim the money from one third of his estate. The Ihram should be adorned from the miqat and may also be adorned from India if one desires to do so.

Answer

In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

If a woman is in her 'iddah, she can not go for Haj. This is irrespective of whether the 'iddah is due to the death of her husband or because of divorce. Therefore, she will have to go next year accompanied with a mahram.
