Hajj & 'Umrah Made Easy

Common mistakes in doing Halq or Taqsir

1. Sometimes a pilgrim goes ahead and does the halq or taqsir for another pilgrim before doing his own halq or taqsir. This is not correct since the pilgrim is not allowed to shave or cut hair of anyone. Even though there is no penalty on him but the person whose halq or taqsir was done has to redo it.

2. Sometimes a pilgrim does the halq or taqsir outside the boundaries of Mina out of ignorance or forgetfulness and does not realize his mistake unless returning back to his hometown. In this case, if it is possible for him to send his hair to be placed in Mina, then he should do that; if that is not possible, then there is nothing on him.
