Hajj – Animal of Sacrifice to be Slaughtered inside Haram (Ahadith 1452 – 1462)


Volume 2, Book 26, Number 752:

Narrated Al-Miswar bin Makhrama and Marwan (radiallaahu `anhumaa):

The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) set out from Medina with over one thousand of his companions (at the time of the Treaty of Hudaibiya) and when they reached Dhul-Hulaifa, the Prophet garlanded his Hadi and marked it and assumed Ihram for ‘Umra.

Volume 2, Book 26, Number 753:

Narrated ‘Aisha (radiallaahu `anhaa):

I twisted with my own hands the garlands for the Budn of the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) who garlanded and marked them, and then made them proceed to Mecca; Yet no permissible thing was regarded as illegal for him then.

Volume 2, Book 26, Number 754:

Narrated Hafsa (radiallaahu `anhaa):

I said, “O Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam)! What is wrong with the people, they have finished their Ihram but you have not?” He said, “I matted my hair and I have garlanded my Hadi, so I will not finish my Ihram till I finished my Hajj .”

Volume 2, Book 26, Number 755:

Narrated ‘Aisha (radiallaahu `anhaa):

Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) used to send the Hadi from Medina and I used to twist the garlands for his Hadi and he did not keep away from any of these things which a Muhrim keeps away from.

Volume 2, Book 26, Number 756:

Narrated ‘Aisha (radiallaahu `anhaa):

I twisted the garlands for the Hadis of the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) and then he marked and garlanded them (or I garlanded them) and then made them proceed to the Ka’ba but he remained in Medina and no permissible thing was regarded as illegal for him then .

Volume 2, Book 26, Number 757:

Narrated ‘Abdullah bin Abu Bakr bin ‘Amr bin Hazm

that ‘Amra bint ‘Abdur-Rahman had told him, “Zaid bin Abu Sufyan wrote to ‘Aisha (radiallaahu `anhaa) that ‘Abdullah bin Abbas (radiallaahu `anhu) had stated, ‘Whoever sends his Hadi (to the Ka’ba), all the things which are illegal for a (pilgrim) become illegal for that person till he slaughters it (i.e. till the 10th of Dhul-Hijja).’ ” ‘Amra added, ‘Aisha (radiallaahu `anhaa) said, ‘It is not like what Ibn Abbas (radiallaahu `anhu) had said: I twisted the garlands of the Hadis of Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) with my own hands. Then Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) put them round their necks with his own hands, sending them with my father; Yet nothing permitted by Allah was considered illegal for Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) till he slaughtered the Hadis.’ “

Volume 2, Book 26, Number 758:

Narrated ‘Aisha (radiallaahu `anhaa):

Once the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) sent sheep as Hadi.

Volume 2, Book 26, Number 759:

Narrated ‘Aisha (radiallaahu `anhaa):

I used to make the garlands for (the Hadis of) the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) and he would garland the sheep (with them) and would stay with his family as a non-Muhrim.

Volume 2, Book 26, Number 760:

Narrated Aisha (radiallaahu `anhaa):

I used to twist the garlands for the sheep of the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) and he would send them (to the Ka’ba), and stay as a non-Muhrim.

Volume 2, Book 26, Number 761:

Narrated ‘Aisha (radiallaahu `anhaa):

I twisted (the garlands) for the Hadis of the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) before he assumed Ihram.

Volume 2, Book 26, Number 762:

Narrated ‘Aisha (radiallaahu `anhaa):

I twisted the garlands of the Hadis from the wool which was with me.

The hadiy (sacrifice) is that which the pilgrim gives as a gift (yahdeehi) to the Ancient House. It is one of the “al-an’aam” animals, i.e., sheep, cattle or camels, which he brings with him before entering ihraam. One of the differences between the one who does Tamattu’ and the one who does Qiraan is that the one who does Qiraan does not exit ihraam after finishing his ‘Umrah; he remains in ihraam until the eighth of Dhu’l-Hijjah, which is the day when he enters the intention for Hajj.

The Sunnah is to slaughter the sacrifice on the day of Eid, which is the tenth of Dhu’l-Hijjah.

It was narrated from Saalim ibn ‘Abd-Allaah that Ibn ‘Umar (may Allaah be pleased with them both) said: “During his last Pilgrimage, the Messenger of Allaah SAWS (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) performed ‘Umrah and then Hajj. He drove a Hadiy (sacrificial animal) along with him… then he went to Safa and Marwa and ran between them seven times and did not do any deed forbidden because of Ihraam, until he finished his Hajj and sacrificed his Hadiy on the day of Nahr (the tenth day of Dhul-Hijjah). He then hastened onwards (to Makkah) and performed Tawaaf of the Ka’bah, and then everything that was forbidden because of Ihraam became permissible.”

(Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 1606, Muslim, 1227)

The place where the hadiy should be slaughtered is in Makkah, because the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) slaughtered his hadiy in Makkah, not in Madeenah or in any other place. The scholars have stated that, and said: It is obligatory to slaughter the hadiy of tamattu’ and qiraan, and the hadiy offered to compensate for omitting an obligatory part of Hajj, in Makkah. Allaah has stated that with reference to the penalty for hunting in ihraam, as He says (interpretation of the meaning):

“the penalty is an offering, brought to the Ka‘bah, of an eatable animal (i.e. sheep, goat, cow) equivalent to the one he killed”

[al-Maa’idah 5:95]

If a specific place is mentioned, it is not permissible to change it to somewhere else, rather it must be done in that place. So the hadiy must be slaughtered in Makkah, and distributed in Makkah. If it so happens that he cannot find anyone to accept it in Makkah, which is an assumption that may be impossible, then there is nothing wrong with slaughtering it in Makkah and sending the meat to anyone who needs it in the Muslim lands, the closest then the next closest, or where the need is greatest.

Reference: Daleel al-Akhta’ allati yaqa’a fiha al-Haaj wa’l-Mu’tamir (mistakes made by pilgrims performing Hajj and ‘Umrah).

Slaughtering the sacrifice in Muzdalifah or in Makkah or in Mina is all permissible; it is permissible to slaughter the sacrificial animal (hadiy) anywhere that is within the boundaries of the Haram, and there is nothing wrong with it, because the Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) said: “All the ravines of Makkah are roads and a place of sacrifice.” End quote.

Hajj – Animal of Sacrifice to be Brought from Outside Haram (Hadith No. 1451)


Volume 2, Book 26, Number 751:

Narrated Nafi’:

‘Abdullah (bin ‘Abdullah) bin ‘Umar said to his father, “Stay here, for I am afraid that it (affliction between Ibn Zubair and Al-Hajjaj) might prevent you from reaching the Ka’ba.” Ibn ‘Umar (radiallaahu `anhu) said, “(In this case) I would do the same as Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) did, and Allah has said, ‘Verily, in Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam), you have a good example (to follow).’ So, I make you, people, witness that I have made ‘Umra compulsory for me.” So he assumed lhram for ‘Umra. Then he went out and when he reached Al-Baida’, he assumed Ihram for Hajj and ‘Umra (together) and said, “The conditions (requisites) of Hajj and ‘Umra are the same.” He, then brought a Hadi from Qudaid. Then he arrived (at Mecca) and performed Tawaf (between Safa and Marwa) once for both Hajj and ‘Umra and did not finish the lhram till he had finished both Hajj and ‘Umra.

A similar Hadith has been covered before. Read it here.

According to the commentator Ibn Battaal, Imaam Bukhari mentioned this Hadith here in order to show the opinion of Ibn `Umar (radiallaahu `anhu) concerning the hadi (animal of sacrifice). He used to say that the hadi has to be bought/brought from outside of the boundaries of haram. And in later posts, we’ll see that it must be sacrificed inside haram.

It is not Sunnah if you have done ‘Umrah to buy a sheep and slaughter it; the Sunnah is to bring a sheep with you from your country or at least from the miqaat or the closest point outside the sanctuary, according to some scholars, and this is called driving the hadiy. But offering a sacrifice after ‘Umrah without having brought the animal with you is not part of the Sunnah. End quote.

Hajj – Summary of Events (Hadith No. 1450)


This here is a brilliant summary of the events of Hajj. May Allah reward `Abdullah ibn `Umar and other companions who have narrated such detailed accounts of the incidents that took place in Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam)’s life. I sometimes try to imagine what it would be like if the Quran and Sunnah weren’t preserved like they are right now.. I fail to imagine.

May Allah join us with them (prophets, companions, martyr, truthful ones, righteous ones) in Jannah. I, for one, would love to sit down with them and hear about their life stories from them. If autographs would be the ‘thing’ in Jannah, I wouldn’t mind taking a few (read: a lot!). And if it’d be cool to ‘party’ with them, I’d love to be the host. May Allah take us all there.

Volume 2, Book 26, Number 750:

Narrated Ibn ‘Umar (radiallaahu `anhu):

During the last Hajj (Hajj-al-Wada’) of Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) he performed ‘Umra and Hajj. He drove a Hadi along with him from Dhul-Hulaifa. Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) started by assuming Ihram for’Umra and Hajj. And the people, too, performed the ‘Umra and Hajj along with the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam). Some of them brought the Hadi and drove it along with them, while the others did not. So, when the Prophet arrived at Mecca. he said to the people, “Whoever among you has driven the Hadi, should not finish his Ihram till he completes his Hajj. And whoever among you has not (driven) the Hadi with him, should perform Tawaf of the Ka’ba and the Tawaf between Safa and Marwa, then cut short his hair and finish his Ihram, and should later assume Ihram for Hajj; but he must offer a Hadi (sacrifice); and if anyone cannot afford a Hadi, he should fast for three days during the Hajj and seven days when he returns home. The Prophet performed Tawaf of the Ka’ba on his arrival (at Mecca); he touched the (Black Stone) corner first of all and then did Ramal (fast walking with moving of the shoulders) during the first three rounds round the Ka’ba, and during the last four rounds he walked. After finishing Tawaf of the Ka’ba, he offered a two Rakat prayer at Maqam Ibrahim, and after finishing the prayer he went to Safa and Marwa and performed seven rounds of Tawaf between them and did not do any deed forbidden because of Ihram, till he finished all the ceremonies of his Hajj and sacrificed his Hadi on the day of Nahr (10th day of Dhul-Hijja). He then hastened onwards (to Mecca) and performed Tawaf of the Ka’ba and then everything that was forbidden because of Ihram became permissible. Those who took and drove the Hadi with them did the same as Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) did.

Hajj – Ridin’ the Animal of Sacrifice (Ahadith 1448 – 1449)


Volume 2, Book 26, Number 748:

Narrated Abu Huraira (radiallaahu `anhu):

Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) saw a man driving his Badana (sacrificial camel). He said, “Ride on it.” The man said, “It is a Badana.” The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said, “Ride on it.” He (the man) said, “It is a Badana.” The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said, “Ride on it.” And on the second or the third time he (the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam)) added, “Woe to you.”

Volume 2, Book 26, Number 749:

Narrated Anas (radiallaahu `anhu):

The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) saw a man driving a Badana. He said, “Ride on it.” The man replied, “It is a Badana.” The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said (again), “Ride on it.” He (the man) said, “It is a Badana.” The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said thrice, “Ride on it.”

What do you say to a person who doesn’t listen to you even when you give him an instruction three times? Answer: woe to you! (It has various interesting translations in Urdu btw.) :P

Coming to the point, one may ride the animal he/she is going to use as hadi (sacrificial animal for Hajj). There are certain conditions as to the minimum age of the animal. In Fataawa al-Lajnah al-Daa’imah, it says:

The shar’i evidence indicates that what is acceptable in the case of sheep is that which has reached the age of six months; in the case of goats it is that which has reached the age of one year; in the case of cattle it is that which has reached the age of two years; and in the case of camels it is that which has reached the age of five years. Anything younger than that is not acceptable as a hadiy or udhiyah. This is what is meant by “a Hady such as you can afford,” because the texts from the Qur’aan and Sunnah explain one another.

And Allah is the source of strength; may Allah send blessings and peace upon our Prophet Muhammad and his family and Companions. End quote.

The Personality Of A Da’ee

This was a post by brother Mohammad Ali on Facebook. Posting it on the blog so people can know how a Da’ee should be. Share it with whoever is involved in Da’wah work.

This is a part taken from my lecture notes of “Personality of a Da’ee”. This actually applies to every practicing Muslim and not just a Da’ee.
So what should be the personality of a practicing Muslim? How he/she must behave? What should be the body language?
The answer to this question is, the best example for us is of course, one and only, Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). So first let’s take a glance at his personality. It would take a lot of space if I start writing and describing each and every trait. So let me summarize: (read Shamail Tirmidhi for detail)
1- He had a very formidable (robdaar) yet friendly personality.
2- He had a very lively and loving nature.
3- His presence used to awe people.
4- His manners would impress even his enemies.
5- He never did excessive joking or laughing.
6- He would speak in a clear manner and at moderate pace.
7- He would express how he felt through his emotions.
8- His body language was extremely decent and calm.

Now consider Hazrat Umar’s personality:
1- Brilliantly formidable.
2- Serious and mature nature
3- Awe inspiring
4- No excessive joking or talking.

And every Sahabi was like that. Now compare this with the picture shared in this post (character buck from Ice Age movie). These days Muslim youth and Da’ees seem to be inspired by such cartoon characters and act like them. Hence losing that maturity, awe (rob) and inspiration which a practicing Muslim must possess. On the contrary, they’re acting stupid, immature, joking all the time, laughing, jumping and doing all sorts of things which decrease the charm from their personality. Time to think. Whom should we take as the ideal? Hollywood cartoon characters or the formidable men who inspired people just by their mere walk?
