Quran Chapter 2- 196c  (Pt-2, Stg-1) (L-243) - درس قرآن

Getting the head shaved

Surah ‘Al-Baqarah (The Cow) – Chapter – 2)

‘A-‘uu-zu  Billaahi minash-Shay-taanir- Rajiim. 
(I seek refuge in God from Satan the outcast.)

Bis-Millaahir-Rah-maanir-Rahiim.

(In the name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful.)

(196c)  وَلَا تَحْلِقُوا۟ رُءُوسَكُمْ حَتَّىٰ يَبْلُغَ ٱلْهَدْىُ مَحِلَّهُۥ ۚ فَمَن كَانَ مِنكُم مَّرِيضًا أَوْ بِهِۦٓ أَذًى مِّن رَّأْسِهِۦ فَفِدْيَةٌ مِّن صِيَامٍ أَوْ صَدَقَةٍ أَوْ نُسُكٍ ۚ 

196c.  And shave not your heads until the offering has reached their destination. And whoever among you is sick or hath an ailment of the head must pay a ransom of fasting or alms-giving or offering.
196c. Wa  laa  tahliquu ru-‘uusakum  hattaa  yablugal-hadyu  mahil-lah.  Faman- kaana minkum- mariizan ‘awbihiii  ‘azam-mir-ra’-sihii  fa-fidyatum-min-  siyaa-min  ‘aw sadaqatin ‘aw nusuk.

Commentary

Nusuk – (offering) literally it means the sacrifice. Here it aims “to sacrifice in the Way of God Almighty, which should not be less than a goat and it is better if a cow or camel is sacrificed.

Mahil-lah – (its destination), that is to say; the place of sacrifice, which signifies towards Bayt-Ullaah (at Makkah).

Islam is a natural religion. Its Commandments have been legislated entirely according to the nature of human beings. Every individual’s qualities and weaknesses have been kept in view in Islam. His needs and desires have been considered. The matters which were necessary for evaluation, promotion and success of the mankind, have been prescribed compulsory and needful. Which things were not useful for the life and object of the mankind, have been fixed unlawful and forbidden.

Primary part of the verse is Appendix of the order of Muh-sir (who has been prevented), recitation of which began in the previous verse. It has been stated up to this point that the individual who has made a vow of Pilgrimage (Hajj) or a Visit (Umrah) and any objection/excuse has been happened for him in the pathway that he can’t perform Hajj or Umrah, then he should send the animal to sacrifice unto BaytUllaah (the House of Allah at Makkah). This Order has been finalized in this verse stating that till the time this animal doesn’t reach Haram and is not sacrificed there, this individual (Muh-sir) can’t shave his head; it means that he can’t open Ihraam.

Further Common Instructions Regarding Pilgrimage

Allah Almighty has given one more concession for the excusable/disabled people in the commandment of Hajj. That is to say; the individual who can’t obey the command of shaving his head during the time of Hajj, for example; he is compelled not to shave his head because of either any disease or any other reason, then; either he should keep the fasts for three days as its ransom so that his spirit may remain pure from the rebellion or he should give 1-3/4 KG wheat (at the scale of Sadaqah Fitr – Alms – Fitranah) to the six poor persons so that he may not fall back from the pathway of God Almighty due to non obeying the first commandment or he should sacrifice an animal.
