Prayers & Duties >> Hajj & Umrah

Question # : 5903


Dear Mufti Saheb, Assalamu alaikum, I am inshallah planning for my Haj this year. I plan for Haj-e-Tamattu.First of all I shall be going to Mecca and perform the Umra part of the Haj-e-Tamattu. I shall then proceed to Madina and stay there for 8-9 days. I shall then leave Madina on the 7th of Zil Haj and reach Aziziya. 8th Zil Haj morning I shall proceed to Mina-Arafat-Muzdalifa-Mina. My question is [1] when I am returning to Aziziya on the 7th Zil Haj from Madina when I wear the Ihram at the miqat Zul Hudaifa whether I should make the niyat of Haj of Tamattu only and go to MIna straight away to complete the Haj arkaans or I should again do a Umra and then go to Mina on the 8th of Zil-Haj. When I first came to Mecca from India during Zil Qayida I would have already performed one Umra ss for Haj-e-Tamattu. So is it required to perform another Umra before Haj ? Since I am returing to Aziziya only on the 7th Zil-Haj evening I will also not have sufficient time to to to Mecca to perform the Umra. [2] When I return from Madina my total duriation of stay in Aziziya and the 5 days of Haj will be aroud 9-10 days only. So sould I do Qasr of my namaaz or do Ada? Jzakallah khair,

Yes, you should wear Ihram at Zul-Hulaifah. If you are performing first Umrah in months of Shawwal and Zul-Qadah or in first days of Zul-Hijjah, then the Umrah and Hajj altogether will become Hajj Tamattu. For this, you need not perform Umrah again. You can come to Azizia (Makkah) on seventh day after wearing Ihram in Zul-Hulaifa then you can set out for Mina on eight day. (b) It is not necessary to perform second Umrah, your Tamattu is valid.

(2) You will have to offer qasr salah.

Allah knows Best!
