Tamattu’ Hajj

read time: 1 minute
Q. I will be performing Tamattu’ Hajj. I know that I have to slaughter a sacrificial animal for Tamattu’. Out of convenience, can I instruct someone to slaughter the animal in my home country instead of having it slaughtered in the Haram?

A. It is necessary that you slaughter the Hadiy (sacrificial) animal for Tamattu’ in the precincts of the Haram (Makkah, Mina & Muzdalifah). You cannot slaughter it in your home country. (al-Hajj wal Umrah fil Fiqhil Islami, Pg: 178)
