Q: Kindly, give us a fatwa regarding slaughtering in the area of Al Mu`aysim during Hajj. Is this place inside or outside Al-Haram? May Allah benefit people with your knowledge and make you among the successful!

A: It is permissible to slaughter the Hady (sacrificial animal offered by pilgrims) in Al Mu`aysim because it is from Al-Haram. All the area stretching between the installed banners on the borders of Al-Haram is part of Al-Haram. The Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: All the roads of Makkah are pathways and a place of sacrifice. Recorded by Abu Dawud, Ahmad and Ibn Majah.

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