Mistake in haram

Fatwaa ID: 1168

Asalamoalikum ,

I have made a mistake in haram

I am in makkah for ummrah after performingummrah.
I went to haram to perform tawaf but I had nausea so sat down in front of kabah and started read masnoon duas to safeguard evil eye and health duas. While I was praying these duas suddenly I felt like vomiting..I rushed to the bins which were close to the wall from where there is a path to Sa’ee..On the left side there were Bin and workers were not letting people in that area as they were about to start cleaning…from that wall kabbah was right in front of me.
While I vomited I passed urine and I couldn’t control myself.
Beneath me Was a green mate and down the mat was there was a Drain.
I asked a worker to give me water as I cant move now..he said only zamzam is available…I washed my trouser and gown with three bottles of water..bottle was around 350ml.

With another bottle I floweded zamzam on the floor where there were remains of urine and didn’t let anyone close to that area. Water was not dripping a lot now.

Then the worker said you need to leave this place as they were going to clean it(which was already the plan by them)
He told me to go the coolers of zamzam and do rest of the cleaning there… I went there passing through green mat whereas people were coming and going from that green mat as well.
Throughout kabah was in front of me and I was begging pardon.

When I went to the zamzam cooler on the side there was a place for men’s abolution.
I went there, when there were only one man left I washed lower bottom starting from hip, under the tap, which was quite high, standing on the drain. I washed my self well, poured bottles was water in the trouser from front or back.
I had a pad in my underwear which couldn’t hold the urine , I pulled it threw in the near bin.
Washed myself well. Not sure of exact cleanliness at the spot from where pad was pulled but I ran bottles of water there too.

There were fans on in front of taps…I stood under there.
When it was little bit dry..I left to exit..which was passing throw mataf…I tried stay at the ends, but at somepoints people didnt lwt me pass fromnthe end so had to come bit further in mataf and left.

What should I do now…still not in a healthy state.

In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.

We take note of the details of your query. May Allaah Ta’aala grant you complete shifaa and allow you to take full advantage of the blessed lands.

What you did above was fine. You did not do anything wrong. You should not feel guilty at all.

It is not clear whether you performed ‘umrah yet or not. If you did not, then once you feel better, you should go and complete the ‘umrah. In the meantime, do not do anything that will take you out of the state of ihraam or will necessitate a penalty.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
