Q: I went for quiet a few umrahs and in one of them, I cannot remember which one. The following occurred: Due to the fact that I cannot remember which umrah it was, I cannot remember where I read my Salaatul Ihraam. Along the way from Madinah Shareef to Makkah Shareef thinking that the Meeqaat is far ahead, I intended to postpone my intention for Ihraam, and I passed the miqaat without intention for Ihraam, and I cannot remember if I passed the Miqaat with my hat on my head or not, and I also cannot remember if I made my niyyat with talbiyah for Ihraam later on or I made my umrah without the niyyat for Ihraam. What should I do. I am going for Umrah in the coming Ramadan (Insha Allah).
A: Slaughter one dam in the precincts of the haram for passing the miqaat without ihraam. Since you are not sure regarding the other things, you do not have to give any dam for it.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
