Is it prescribed for the person who is doing ‘Umrah to sacrifice a hadiy after his ‘umrah?

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:
I read in some books of fiqh that it is mustahabb for the person who is doing ‘Umrah to sacrifice a hadiy after his ‘umrah. Is this one of the Sunnahs that have been forgotten in our time?.

Answer:
Praise be to Allaah.

This is one of the Sunnahs that have been forgotten in our time, but it is not Sunnah if you have done ‘Umrah to buy a sheep and slaughter it; the Sunnah is to bring a sheep with you from your country or at least from the miqaat or the closest point outside the sanctuary, according to some scholars, and this is called driving the hadiy. But offering a sacrifice after ‘Umrah without having brought the animal with you is not part of the Sunnah. End quote. 

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.
