Q 2: I assumed Ihram (ritual state for Hajj and ‘Umrah) at Abyar ‘Aly and then we went on our way to Makkah. I found the journey difficult and got a severe fever. So I went to sleep and covered my head. What am I obligated to do for having done this?

A: It is obligatory on you to offer a Fidyah (ransom), which is either to observe Sawm (Fasting) for three days, feed six needy people, or slaughter a sheep in the Haram (the Sacred Sanctuary of Makkah).

May Allah grant us success! May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions!
