There is No Harm II (Ahadith 1479 – 1481)


Volume 2, Book 26, Number 779:

Narrated Ibn Abbas (radiallaahu `anhu):

The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) was asked about a person who had his head shaved before slaughtering (his Hadi) (or other similar ceremonies of Hajj). He replied, “There is no harm, there is no harm.”

Volume 2, Book 26, Number 780:

Narrated Ibn Abbas (radiallaahu `anhu):

A man said to the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam), “I performed the Tawaf-al-Ifada before the Rami (throwing pebbles at the Jamra).” The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) replied, “There is no harm.” The man said, “I had my head shaved before slaughtering.” The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) replied, “There is no harm.” He said, “I have slaughtered the Hadi before the Rami.” The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) replied, “There is no harm.”

Volume 2, Book 26, Number 781:

Narrated Ibn Abbas (radiallaahu `anhu):

The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) was asked by a man who said, “I have done the Rami in the evening.” The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) replied, “There is no harm in it.” Another man asked, “I had my head shaved before the slaughtering.” The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) replied, “There is no harm in it.”

Leniency. Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) was a lenient person himself, and that’s how he represented the Deen to be – relaxed. Something so important and grand as Hajj should have had strict guidelines, no? That one can’t cut their hair before slaughtering their animal, and if they did, they should have to repeat the manasik, or at least give some expiation. But he just kept saying ‘there’s no harm’. As if he meant to portray that the intention had more importance than the action itself.

Having said that, it doesn’t mean that we can do whatever we want in Hajj. Once we intend to perform Hajj or Umrah etc., it is necessary to learn about the rituals and procedures beforehand. And after doing all that, if it so happens that while performing the rituals, you got confused about the sequence and did something before its time and place out of forgetfulness, then remember these words: there’s no harm.
But if someone doesn’t learn about the procedures and lands up in Makkah to do Hajj, and then he commits mistakes, there might be some harm..
