      ḥalq and taqsīr

      Q103. The person who intends to perform obligatory hajjat ul-Islam, can he make his hair of head and beard short in the month of Dhul-Qa`dah of the very year?

      Answer:It is allowed to do so although it is desirable in the view of religious law not to do.

      Q104. Is it allowed for women to perform taqsīr at the night of Eid ul-Adha after performing ramy(stoning) at Jamarah ‘Aqabah? Is there any difference whether she has appointed/hired a person to slaughter an animal on the day of Eid after the sunrise or not?

      Answer:It is allowed to perform taqsīr in Minā for a woman who has no responsibility of slaughtering an animal. She may go to the holy city of Mecca for performing rites of Hajj if she wants. However, the woman who has the responsibility of slaughtering an animal, it is obligatory for her to wait until the animal is slaughtered on her behalf on the day of Eid. Hiring a representative for slaughtering an animal is not sufficient for taqsīr at night.

      Q105. A person hires a representative for slaughtering an animal, can he/she perform taqsīr or ḥalqbefore returning of the hired person or receiving the news that the animal has been slaughtered?

      Answer:He/she should wait to receive the news from the hired person. However, if he/she makes haste in performing ḥalq or taqsīr and accidently performs ḥalq and taqsīr before slaughtering of animal by the hired person, his/her deed is invalid and it is compulsory to repeat this act.

      Q106. If a person performs taqsīroutside Minā due to ignorance of the ruling, what is commandment about this issue? Is it compulsory that he should enter Minā again for taqsīr?

      Answer:Performing taqsīr outside Minā is not sufficient whether it is due to mistake or ignorance.

      Q107. A person forgets taqsīrin ‘umrah mufradah and performs ṭawāf of nisā’, what is the ruling about this issue? Is it obligatory for him to perform taqsīrand ṭawāf of nisā’ or only performing taqsīr is obligatory and there is no need to repeat ṭawāf of nisā’?

      Answer:It is obligatory for them to perform taqsīr, ṭawāf of nisā’and its prayer once again.
