Chapter: Manners of sacrifice at haj
(1) After the completion of the Sacrifice, facing Qibla gents may do Halaqa or shave their entire head, or get the hair cut at least one fourth of the hair or make short to the size of one finger joint.
(2) Women can only get their hair cut (Qasr), from one fourth of the entire hair cut at least to the size of one finger joint. Husband can cut if he is present or she could cut for herself with a pair of scissors.
(3) Few person cut a very small portion of their hair with scissors, without doing Qasr like this the conditions of ihram do not get over. It is obligatory (wajib) to cut least one fourth of the entire hair to the size of at least one finger joint.
(4) The hair happen to be uneven in the size, hence, cut the hair more than that of one finger joint, so that all hair cut to the required size.
(5) When the time comes to get out of ihram, then the Muhrim (or the one who is wearing ihram) can shave his own head or shave another person’s head, if that person too is a Muhrim.
(6) Prior to Halaqa or Taqseer (shaving head or short hair cut) neither cut your nail nor shape your beard. Otherwise, Kaffarah (atonement) would become imperative.
(7) The time for Halaqa or Taqseer (shaving head or short hair cut) is the days of sacrifice, that is to say, 10th, 11th and 12th of Dhu Al-Hijja and the better day is being the 10th of Dhu Al-Hijja.
(8) If Halaqa or Qasr (shaving of the entire head or cutting the hair short) is not done till 12th of Dhu Al-Hijja, then giving a Dam (penalty) is imminent.
(9) If someone does not have hair on his head or if he is bald, it is obligatory (wajib) for him to spin the razor on his head.
(10) If somebody has measles boils or injuries on his head due to which he is unable to shave his head or if the hair is not so long to cut, then Halaqa and Qasr both become waived, thus everything becomes halaal for him, as for those who do Halaqa or Qasr. But he has to remain in ihram till the end of the days of Nahar.
(11) Halaqa or Qasr, doing within the boundaries of Haram is obligatory (wajib). If that has been done outside the boundary, a Dam (penalty) becomes obligatory (wajib). (Mina is within the boundary of the Haram).
(12) It is Sunnah to get Halaqa or Qasr done within the Mina
(13) While getting the Halaqa or Qasr done, sitting facing the Qibla direction and starting the Halaqa or Qasr from the right side is Sunna.
(14) During the Halaqa or Taqseer, recite the takbeer like this :
“Allahu akbar Allahu akbar. Laa ilaha illallaahu Allahu akbar. Allahu akbar wa lillaahil-hamd”
اَللّٰہُ اَکْبَرُ ط اَللّٰہُ اَکْبَرُ ط لَااِلٰہَ اِلَّا اللّٰہُ وَاللّٰہُ اَکْبَرُ ط اَللّٰہُ اَکْبَرُط وَلِلّٰہِ الْحَمْدُ ط
“Allah is the Greatest, Allah is the Greatest, none but Allah is worthy of worship, Allah is the Greatest. Allah is the Greatest and all praise belongs to Allah.”
(15) Prior to and after completion of Halaqa or Taqseer, ask forgiveness from Allah for self and for the entire Ummah.
(16) If the Mufarrid wants to give sacrifice, it is recommended (Mustahab) for him to do Halaqa or Taqseer after the sacrifice. If sacrifice is given after Halaqa then also no issues. And for the person who performed Tamatto and Qirran Hajj, it is obligatory (wajib) for them doing Halaqa or Taqseer after sacrifice is being given. If Halaqa or Taqseer is done prior to sacrifice being given by them, then a Dam (penalty) would become obligatory (wajib).
(17) After getting free from Halaqa or Taqseer (Shaving the Head or shortening the hair) the restriction of ihram comes to an end. But the proximity with the wife and her anatomical details would be permissible only after the Tawaf-u-Ziarah (Circumambulation of the visit) (Bahar-e-Shariyat, Volume 1, Part 6, Pages 1142, 1144)
