Makkah

Shafi'i Fiqh

Stoning the Jamaraat is an Obligatory Ritual of Hajj and Authorizing someone to do that without a Valid Excuse is Impermissible.

We stayed in Makkah during the three days of Tashreeq, and didn`t spend the night of any in Mina. On the Day of Eid, we stoned only Jamrat Al-A`qabah, and authorized our father to stone the rest on our behalf during the remaining days of Tashreeq, so he threw at eleven thirty pm of the second day, and at twelve o`clock of the third. What is the Sharia ruling in this regard?

Passed the Meeqat without Intending Umrah then Changed his Mind

I work for an airline where I get to fly to Jaddah and spend one night there. I usually arrive at twelve am, unless there was a delay in the flight or at the airport. Sometimes, I arrive at the hotel on time and make the intention to perform Umrah from there, so I assume Ihram(Ritual consecration), go to the Haram(Sanctuary) and perform the Umrah. However, I don`t assume Ihram, while on board, from the Meeqat(Place of assuming Ihram) because my flight may not arrive on its scheduled time or because I`m in uniform. Is the Umrah that I have offered valid although I didn`t assume Ihram from the Meeqat, I made the intention to perform Umrah when I arrived at the hotel and I checked that I had enough time between flights? Moreover, I have performed four Umrahs in this exact manner, are they valid or not?
