He did ‘umrah several times but did not do sa‘i, then he got married

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:
Nine years ago, I did ‘umrah; I did tawaf but did not do sa‘i. I did ‘umrah two more times, and did not do sa‘i. Four years ago, I began to pray regularly, and I got married and was blessed with a child. What should I do with regard to the marriage contract?

Praise be to Allah

I put this question to our shaykh, ‘Abd ar-Rahmaan al-Barraak (may Allah preserve him), and he replied:

He has to repeat his marriage contract. As for his failing to do sa‘i, it is sufficient for him to offer a fidyah (a sacrifice) for each sa‘i that he omitted to do.

And Allah knows best.

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.
