Q: i performed ifrad Hajj (performing Hajj only) this year. After staying on the plain of `Arafah, I suffered a heat stroke on the 10th of Dhul-Hijjah, 1402 A.H., and entered the hospital for treatment. I missed Tawaf-ul-Ifadah (final obligatory circumambulation around the Ka`bah in Hajj). On the 16th of Dhul-Hijjah, 1402 A.H., I performed this Tawaf, is this sufficient for me or should I offer Hady (sacrificial animal offered by pilgrims)?

A: There is no sin on you for delaying Tawaf-ul-Ifadah until the date mentioned in the question.

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