Hanafi Fiqh: Bestiality Does not Invalidate Hajj معاذ الله

Dear readers! In this entry I shall show you what kind of Hajj is offered by the Hanafis (blind-followers of Abu Hanifa and Co.)


According to Fatawa Alamgiri, if a person has sex with an animal (bestiality), either resulting in ejaculation or not, his Hajj is not rendered void. In other words, if a person does such a disgusting act during Hajj, according to the Hanafis, his Hajj is in order!


وَلَوْ أَتَى بَهِيمَةً فَأَوْلَجَهَا فَلَا شَيْءَ عَلَيْهِ إِلَّا إِذَا أَنْزَلَ فَيَجِبُ عَلَيْهِ الدَّمُ وَلَا تُفْسِدُ حُجَّتُهُ وَلَا عُمْرَتُهُ


اگر وہ جانور کے پاس آۓ اور اس میں داخل کرے تو اس پر کوئی تاوان نہیں ہاں اگر انزال ہو جاۓ تو اس پر قربانی واجب ہوگی اور اس کا حج فاسد نہیں ہوگا۔


Translation: “If someone comes to an animal and copulates with it, there is nothing upon him (to compensate for), except if ejaculation occurs, then it is mandatory for him to offer a blood sacrifice, but neither his Hajj nor his Umrah are nullified.”


On the same page, another mas'alah regarding Hajj is mentioned, that if a person looks with lust at a woman and ejaculation occurs, similarly, there is nothing upon him to compensate for and neither is his Hajj nullified:


وان نَظَرَ إلَى فَرْجِ اِمْرَأَةٍ بشَهْوَةٍ فَأَمْنَى لَا شَيْءَ عَلَيْهِ


اگر وہ عورت کی شرمگاہ کی طرف شہوت کے ساتھ دیکھے اور بہہ جاۓ تو اس پر کوئی تاوان نہیں۔


Translation: “If a person (during Hajj or Umrah) looks at a woman's private part with lust, causing ejaculation, then there is nothing upon him to compensate.”
