AOA
QXP;
2:196 (Peace cannot defend itself. Mankind have to guard it.) Therefore,
observe the Hajj and ‘Umrah Convention for God. If you are stranded,
send in gifts that the congregation would utilize. Do not consider that by
doing so you have relieved yourself of duty. Be with them at heart until
the gifts have reached their destination. If someone is sick or has other
compelling burdens preventing him from sending any contribution, then
Abstinence for a few days at convenience, or an act of charity or fulfilling
someone’s need shall be in order. If a person is present at the
Convention but cannot afford to contribute, he should exercise
Abstinence for a total number of ten days, three days there and seven
days after coming home. This is for him whose people do not live in the
vicinity of the Convention. Be mindful of God, remembering the noble
objective. And know that God (His law) is Strict in grasping.
what does ,'Wala tahelqu ruo sakoom' means here, is it 'and do not shave your heads' or ' Do not consider that by doing so you have relieved yourself of duty' or both.
I'll appreciate any in put on this.
regards
