He traveled and did not stone the Jamaraat on the 12th of Dhu’l-Hijjah


I booked to travel after Hajj at 4.oo p.m. on the 12th of Dhu’l-Hijjah. I thought that I would be able to stone the jamaraat that day, but I was afraid that if I did it after the sun had passed its zenith I would be late for my travel arrangements, so I did it in the morning and did the farewell tawaaf and left. What should I do?.


Praise be to Allaah.

Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthyameen said: 

It is not permissible to stone the jamaraat before the sun passes its zenith, but we may waive the obligation in your case because of necessity, and we say: you have to offer a fidyah (sacrifice) to be slaughtered in Mina or Makkah, or you can delegate someone to slaughter it on your behalf, and its meat should be distributed to the poor.
