Doing dam as a precaution

Q: I performed hajj and I wanted to be safe and give dam (penalty) but I already left Saudia Arabia and now I’m at home.  Is it still permissible to give dam and who can I give it to?


A: If you have not committed any act which violates the laws of ihraam, then dam (penalty) is not compulsory upon you. If you have committed any violation, then you should state it so that we would be able to inform you regarding the Shar’ee ruling.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
