• Badanah

    Badanah (Arabic: بدنة) refers to offering a large sacrificial animal such as a camel or cow (the size of which normally constitutes seven parts) as compensation (Fidyah) for violating a Hajj-related law.

    Badanah would be required in the following two situations:

    1. Performing Tawaf in a state of major ritual impurity (requiring Ghusl), in a state of menstruation or after childbirth.
    2. Having sexual relations at any point between Wuquf in Arafat (on the 9th of Dhul Hijjah) and cutting the hair / Tawaf al-Ziyarah (on the 10th of Dhul Hijjah).
