Is the standing in ‘Arafah of one who is unconscious valid?

Dear Brothers & Sisters,
As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
If a person falls unconscious before ‘Arafah, then he is carried to ‘Arafah on the day of ‘Arafah when he is unconscious, is his Hajj valid even if he is not aware?.
(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)

Praise be to Allaah.

The scholars -- may Allah have mercy on them -- have stated that the standing in ‘Arafah of one who is unconscious is valid. If a person falls unconscious before dawn breaks on the day of ‘Arafah and does not wake up until after dawn on the day of Sacrifice, and he is in ‘Arafah and has stood or stayed in ‘Arafah, then his Hajj is valid. 

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
