Rami before Zuhr on 12 Zul Hijjah

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by CouncilofUlama.co.za

Q: A family member and I made rami (pelting) around 11:30 am before Dhuhr on the 12th of Dhul Hijjah. Did we make a mistake or not? If we made a mistake please guide us.

A: On the 12th of Dhul Hijjah, the time for rami (pelting) begins from Zawaal, it is not permissible to do it before that. The local time for Zawaal in and around the vicinity of Makkah (including Mina) was approximately 12:06 pm on the 12th of Dhul-Hijjah.

If rami (pelting) was performed in the impermissible time it has to be made up by redoing the pelting and giving a damm*. The time for redoing the pelting expired at sunset on the 13th of Dhul-Hijjah, so now only a damm is wajib on you.

*Damm: Refers to the slaughtering of a goat, a sheep or a one-seventh part of a cow or a one-seventh part of a camel within the precincts of the Haram in lieu of certain violations made while performing the manaasik (rites) of Hajj.
