PostSubject: If a Child enters puberty during the Hajj   If a Child enters puberty during the Hajj EmptySat Oct 02, 2010 12:50 pm



I performed Hajj with my family when I was a child. Then, on the 8th day of Thul-Hijjah I had a wet dream. So, I performed complete bathing, put on my Ihram clothes and completed my Hajj. Then, after 7 years I asked about this Hajj of mine and was it sufficient or not, and I heard that it did not suffice. I would like to perform Hajj on behalf of my mother who died and she only performed Hajj once. Will my Hajj on her behalf be acceptable or do I have to perform Hajj for myself first and then for her?


Whenever the child enters puberty during Hajj at 'Arafat or before it, and during 'Umrah before making its Tawaf, that act suffices him for fulfilling the obligation. Since the questioner had a wet dream on the 8th day and he assumed Ihram and stood at 'Arafat afterwards, then his Hajj suffices for fulfilling the obligation. This is because he reached 'Arafat after entering puberty. Thus, he counts that Hajj on behalf of himself and he may perform Hajj on behalf of his mother or someone other than her, and that is acceptable from him. Perhaps, if Allah wills, afterwards he can repeat the Hajj for himself, his parents and whomever he wishes.

Shaikh Ibn Jibreen (Rahimallullah)
