Q 2: if a person in a state of ihram destroys a tree or some plants of the Haram with his car, will there be any liability imposed upon him for this?

A: If someone destroys a tree or a plant outside the boundaries of Al-Haram, there will be no liability imposed upon him, except for paying its value to its owner, if there was any. Likewise, if he destroys any of the trees or plants of the Haram that belong to someone, then he will be obliged to pay its value to its owner, but if it does not belong to anyone, he will not have to do anything; however, he should not do this deliberately, because the Prophet (peace be upon him) forbade it.

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