Delaying the tawaaf-e-ziyaarah

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: A person delayed doing his tawaaf-e-ziyarah till the last few hours before sunset on the 12th Zul Hijjah. Whilst proceeding from Mina to complete the tawaf-e-ziyaarah, the police prevented him from proceeding to makkah. He attempted going through the police blockade a few times but to no avail. The time period prescribed to complete the tawaaf-e-ziyaarh thus elapsed (i.e. sunset on the 12th Zul Hijjah). Will damm be wajib on him ?


A: Yes, dum will be wajib on him.

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