Unable to spend the night in Muzdalifah

Reference: ad-Durrar an-Naasirah fil-Fataawa al-Mu’aasarah – Page 410

Question: Whoever does not spend the night in Muzdalifah because he was unable to do so for whatever reason – such as having got lost or other than that – is he required to atone [for this]? May Allaah reward you with good.

Response: Yes, that which is apparent is that he is required to atone [for this] according to the principles [laid down by the] people of knowledge, however there is no sin upon him [for having done so]. That is because the one who left [off] an obligation is excused [if he had a religiously acceptable reason for doing so], therefore there is no sin upon him, instead he is required to compensate [for this] – that being to atone.

If, however, he did so intentionally, then upon him is the sin as well as the atonement; That which is apparent is that he is required to atone according to the principles [laid down by the] people of knowledge; Yes – if a person was coercively prevented from spending the night in Muzdalifah, then nothing [atonement] is required of him because this was done against his will.

حكم ترك المبيت بمزدلفة

المرجع: الدرر الناضرة في الفتاوى المعاصرة – ص410

السؤال: من ترك المبيت في مزدلفة لعدم تمكنه من ذلك لأي سبب كان كضياعه و غير ذلك هل يلزمه دم؟ جزاكم الله خيراً.

الجواب: نعم، الظاهر أنه يلزمه دم على حسب قواعد أهل العلم لكنه لا إثم عليه، و ذلك إن كان تارك الواجب معذوراً فلا إثم عليه و لكن عليه البدل و هو الدم، و إن كان متعمداً صار الإثم و الدم، و الظاهر أنه يلزمه دم على حسب قواعد أهل العلم، نعم لو أن الإنسان منع من أن يبيت في مزدلفة فهذا لا شيء عليه لأن ذلك على سبيل الإكراه.
