Q: I recently went for Hajj alhamdulillah and I benefited a lot from the audio bayaans of Maulana Saleem Dhorat sahib and also a guide to Hajj booklet by Maulana. May Allah Ta’ala reward him abundantly aameen. It so happened that when we got to Muzdalifah, and after performing our maghrib and Esha prayers, we had something to eat and slept. Our group leader told us to get ready to move and we left Muzdalifah for Mina before Fajr. I was the only Hanafi. I had no alternative but to follow. So as I missed the wuquf from Fajr onwards, is dam wajib on me? 


A: If you moved to Mina before the time of fajr set in, then you should give dum for leaving out the waajib wuqoof of muzdalifa. The dum is that you slaughter a sheep a or goat in the precinct of the Haram for the missed wuqoof and thereafter distribute the meat among the poor.

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