Q 2: A person threw the pebbles of Jamrat-ul-`Aqabah (the closest pebble-throwing area to Makkah) during Hajj by taking seven pebbles hurling them together in one time.

A 2: Whoever throws the pebbles of Jamrat-ul-`Aqabah in one stroke, has to repeat the throwing again during the days specified for this act. It is obligatory to throw them one by one. Throwing all of them in one stroke counts as throwing one pebble. If the person did not repeat the throwing, he must offer Fidyah by slaughtering an animal because of missing one of the obligatory rituals of Hajj. The slaughtered animal is a sheep meeting the same conditions of an Ud-hiyah (sacrificial animal offered by non-pilgrims). It should be slaughtered in Makkah and its meat be distributed among the poor of Al-Haram. If one is not able to offer a Fidyah, he can fast for ten days, consecutively or separately.

May Allah grant us success! May Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family and his Companions!
