Q: I have performed Hajj last year with my family and I have few questions. I forgot to check with any mufti before leaving but as per my calculation we stayed in Makkah before leaving for Mina (5th aug 00:00 to 19th aug 03:00) and I thought it was 14 days. As per my calculation we prayed Qasr salah.
Later I got confused and thought whether we should have prayed full as it could have been 15 days. Also, it depended on the moon sighting. After Hajj, I clarified with some mufti and he said it was okay and don’t put your mind in stray thoughts.
I am confused since then and also repented to Allah to forgive if I did wrong. I am worried that I took my family and didn’t guide them properly. Is Hajj affected with this or what we did was correct?
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
