The Rulings on the Pillars and Obligatory Acts of Hajj and ‘Umrah

  • Hajj and ‘Umrah are incomplete in the absence of any of their “Pillars”. Therefore, the Hajj or ‘Umrah of anyone who leaves out a “Pillar” is invalid.
  • Hajj and ‘Umrah are deficient in the absence of any of their “Obligatory Acts”. Therefore, the Hajj or ‘Umrah of anyone who leaves out an “Obligatory Act” must be rectified by offering a sacrifice.
