Misarranged Performance of the Practices of 10th ZilHijja


Fiqh, Hajj - Merits and Precepts

Rule Of Action
Suppose a Mufrid or a Qarin or a Mutamatte got his head shaven before Rami or suppose a Qarin, or a Mutamatte got his head shaven before offering sacrifice, or suppose a Qarin or a Mutamatte offered sacrifice before Rami ; in all such cases a Dam would be obligatory, because a proper arrangement was obligatory to perform these practices. For a Mufrid however, this arrangement of performance is obligatory only in Rami and Halq (having his head shaven) as he is not obliged to offer a sacrifice. On the other hand, for a Qarin this arrangement is obligatory to perform Rami, sacrifice and Halq. He should first perform Rami, then offer sacrifice and then should have his head shaven. In case of priority or delay a Dam would be obligatory.

Halq or Qasar Wajib of the 10th ZilHijja


Fiqh, Hajj - Merits and Precepts

After offering sacrifice it is Wajib to have your head shaven or your hair cut equal in length to a joint of a finger (about one inch). But it is not necessary to be done today. It may be done at any time upto the 12th of Zilhijja but you will remain under the restrictions of Ihram whatever length of time you may pass until you have your head shaven or your hair cut. In case you have your head shaven or your hair cut on the 10th of Zilhijja you will be relieved from Ihram formalities. Now, wearing sewn clothes, using perfumes, pruning nails and having your hair cut, all these things become lawful for you, but your enjoying a sexual intercourse with your wife will not be lawful until you are relieved from the obligation of Tawaf-e-Ziyarat i.e. Tawaf-e-
Fardh.

Sacrifice the 3rd Wajib of the 10th ZilHijja


Fiqh, Hajj - Merits and Precepts

It is Wajib for a Qarin and a Mutamatte’ that after being free from Rami they do not have their heads shaven or their hair cut until they discharge their Wajib of offering sacrifice ; otherwise they will fall under the obligation of Dam. Offering sacrifice is not Wajib, of course, for a Mufrid who has worn Ihram for Hajj only. For him, it is Mustahab only. It is lawful for him not to offer any sacrifice and to have his head shaven.

The 2nd Wajib of 10th ZilHijja


Fiqh, Hajj - Merits and Precepts

The Rami At Jamrat-Ul-Aqaba
Today on reaching Mina, the first thing to do is the Rami at Jamarat-ul-Aqaba which is Wajib on this very day. It may please be noted that there are three such places in Mina which are called as Jamarat. Seven pebbles are pelted on each of these Jamarat. The first Jamra is near the mosque of Mina i.e. Masjid-e-Khaif. It is called Jamrat-ul-‘Ola. The 2nd Jamra is next to the first and is called Jamrat-ul-Aqaba is situated at the end of Mina. Today on the 10th Zilhijja, you are to perform Rami with seven pebbles on Jamrat-ul-Aqaba only. Rami literally means pelting of stones or pebbles. This Rami is observed as a memorial of that approved action of Hazrat Ibrahim (Abraham) which he did at the time he took his son Hazrat Isma’il (Ishamel) for offering him as sacrifice and the satan tried to mislead him. At that time Hazrat Ibrahim repelled the satan by throwing pebbles at him.

Proceeding To Mina from Muzdalifa


Fiqh, Hajj - Merits and Precepts

A short while before the sunrise which may be equivalent to the time sufficing two Rak’ats of prayers, you are to proceed to Mina from Muzdalifa. Delaying your proceeding is contrary to Sunnat (Hayat-ul-Qulob). It is also a Sunnat to collect from Muzdalifa seven pebbles equal to a big gram or a date-stone in size for the purpose of Rami at Jamarat-ul-Aqaba.
