Can Damm be given anytime throughout the year?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Askimam.org

If someone needs to give Damm for umrah/hajj mistakes, can this damm be given any time within the year or it has to be at hajj time?

Also is there a way to give damm without having to go for hajj or umrah? if yes then how? do you know any legit services where you could pay them to give the damm for you so you don’t have to go makkah for this?


In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

In principle, Damm refers to the slaughtering of a goat, a sheep, a one-seventh part of a cow, or a one-seventh part of a camel within the precincts of the Haram in compensation of certain violations made while performing the Manaasik (rites) of Hajj or Umrah.[1]

If Damm becomes compulsory on a person, the Damm must be fulfilled within the Sacred Precinct (the Haram).[2]

If Damm were compulsory on a person, but one had already returned home, one may appoint a Wakeel (representative) do so on his/her behalf, even after the time of Hajj. However, it is undesirable to delay the paying of the Damm. [3]

We are not aware of any establishments that fulfill ones Damm. You may enquire from people who know of reliable people in Makkah Shareef to do the Damm on your behalf.

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
