Sahih Muslim – The Sacrificial Animal and Hajj and Umrah

Abdullah b. ‘Umar (Allah be pleased with them) reported: Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) observed Tamattu’ in Hajjat-ul-Wada’ .He first put on Ihram for ‘Umra and then for Hajj. and then offered animal sacrifice. So he drove the sacrificial animals with him from Dhu’l-Hulaifa. Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) commenced Ihram of Umra and thus pronounced Talbiya for ‘Umra. and then (put on Ihram for Hajj) and pronounced Talbiya for Hajj. And the people performed Tamattu’ in the company of Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him). They put on Ihram for Umra (first) and then for Hajj. Some of them had sacrificial animals which they had brought with them, whereas some of them had none to sacrifice. So when Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) came to Mecca, he said to the people: He who amongst you has brought sacrificial animals along with him must not treat as lawful anything which has become unlawful for him till he has completed the Hajj; and he,who amongst you has not brought the sacrificial animals should circumambulate the House, and run between al-Safa’ and al-Marwa and clip (his hair) and put off the Ihram, and then again put on the Ihram for Hajj and offer sacrifice of animals. But he who does not find the sacrificial animal, he should observe fast for three days during the Hajj and for seven days when he returns to his family. Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) circumambulated (the House) when he came to Mecca: he first kissed the corner (of the Ka’ba containing the Black Stone), then ran in three circuits out of seven and walked in four circuits. And then when he had finished the circumambulation of the House he observed two rak’ahs of prayer at the Station (of Ibrahim), and then pronounced Salaam (for concluding the rak’ahs), and departed and came to al-Safa’ and ran seven times between al-Safa’ and al-Marwa. After that he did not treat anything as lawful which had become unlawful till he had completed his Hajj and sacrificed his animal on the day of sacrifice (10th of Dhu’l-Hijja). and then went back quickly (to Mecca) and performed circumambulation of the House (known as tawaf ifada) after which all that was unlawful for him became lawful; and those who had brought the sacrificial animals along with them did as Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) had done. This hadith has been narrated on the authority of ‘A’isha. The wife of Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him), concerning his Tamattu’ of Hajj and ‘Umra and performing of Tamattu’ by people in his company.
