The Rulings of the Masdood (The Barred)

530. The Masdood is he who is barred [from performing the Hajj or Umrah], after declaring and assuming the ihraam, regardless of whether this barring was at the two woquf's (Arafaat and the Mashar), if his ihraam was only for the Hajj, or he was barred from entering Makkah to perform the tawaaf and say when he was in state of ihraam for Umrah, and thus not being able to perform the tawaaf and say until their time had ran out. In that case he should release himself from the ihraam by Had'y, i.e. by slaughtering the animal, at the place he was barred [from proceeding further on].
531. It is permissible for the Masdood to slaughter the animal before the day of Eid, and as a precaution, one should also perform the halq shaving on the same day too.
532. It is permitted for the Masdood to remain in his ihraam, and release himself from it by performing the Mufradah Umrah, which is by performing the tawaaf around the Kabah, then the prayer of the tawaaf by the Maqaam or behind it, then the say between Safa and Marwah, then the taqseer, then Tawaaf al-Nisa', and then its prayer by the Maqaam or behind it.
533. The Masdood has discharged his duty to the Hajj if he acted accordingly, as mentioned above, unless he had become mostatee liable to performing the Hajj in the previous year or before it [by meeting all the criteria required for the Hajj], or if he continued to meet those criteria in the next year(s).
534. If he managed to observe the two woquf's (Arafaat and Mashar) but from there he was barred from performing the rites of Mina the Ram'y [stoning], the Had'y (slaughtering), and the Shaving/Trimming if he was barred from entering Makkah and performing its rites too throughout the month of Dhil-Hejjah, the previous ruling applies to him.
535. If the barring covered the rites of Mina only, and it was possible for him to perform them by proxy, it is obligatory for him to do so, i.e. to arrange for someone to perform those rites stoning, slaughtering, shaving on his behalf. On the completion of those acts, he is released from his ihraam, and he then should perform the rest of the rites. If he could not do them by proxy, and he was not able to find an agent to do them for him on his behalf, as a precaution he should slaughter his animal, and remain in his ihraam until he can be released [from it] by the Mufradah Umrah.
536. If he completed the rites of Makkah, which are the tawaaf and its prayer, the say, Tawaaf al-Nisa' and its prayer, but was then barred from returning to Mina for the mabeet there for the Nights of Tashreeq, and for the Ram'y of the Jamaraat during their days, he is obliged to perform the Ram'y by proxy, and he could engage in acts of worship in Makkah during the nights of the mabeet in Mina, if possible. Otherwise, as a precaution, he should give a kaffaarah for not observing the mabeet in Mina. If it was not possible to perform the Ram'y by proxy in that year, he should do so in the following year, and his Hajj is correct.
