(Fatwa: 224/195=D)


It is necessary to respect the haram and avoid every act that causes hurt/pain to anyone, especially in the pilgrimage of hajj or umrah. Wickedness and wrangling have been sternly prohibited. You should repent to Allah seeking His forgiveness and if possible try to excuse the person and get him pleased whether by giving him a gift. And, if it is not possible then give something in charity on behalf of him. There is no other kaffarah (expiation). If you are blessed to visit the haram again you should mind these things very carefully.

Allah knows Best!
