The hadiy is animal sacrifice which the pilgrim gives as a gift (yahdeehi) during Hajj. It is one of the “al-An’aam” animals, i.e., sheep, cattle or camels, which they brings with them before entering Ihram. One of the differences between the one who does Tamattu’ and the one who does Qiraan is that the one who does Qiraan does not exit Ihram after finishing his ‘Umrah; he remains in Ihram until the eighth of Dhu’l-Hijjah, which is the day when he enters the intention for Hajj. 


The sacrifice on the day of Eid ul Adha done by others who are non- pilgrims, which is the tenth of Dhu’l-Hijjah are called as Udhiyah.

It was narrated from Saalim ibn ‘Abd-Allaah that Ibn ‘Umar (may Allaah be pleased with them both) said: “During his last Pilgrimage, the Messenger of Allaah SAWS (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) performed ‘Umrah and then Hajj. He drove a Hadiy (sacrificial animal) along with him… then he went to Safa and Marwa and ran between them seven times and did not do any deed forbidden because of Ihram, until he finished his Hajj and sacrificed his Hadiy on the day of Nahr (the tenth day of Dhul-Hijjah). He then hastened onwards (to Makkah) and performed Tawaaf of the Ka'bah, and then everything that was forbidden because of Ihram became permissible.” Sahih al-Bukhari, 1691 and Sahih Muslim 1227


No one among the pilgrims has to offer a sacrifice in his own country, because the sacrifice is one of the rituals (of Hajj), so it can only be done in Makkah. Even if the pilgrim has to offer a sacrifice because he did something which is not allowed during Hajj, he should not offer this sacrifice in his own country,  rather it should be done in Mina or Makkah. 


Scholars view

‘Abd al-‘Azeem Aabaadi said: it is permissible to slaughter all the sacrificial animals in the sacred land (the Haram of Makkah), according to scholarly consensus, but Mina is the best place for offering the sacrifice of Hajj.
