Rules of Hajj ul Tamatu and Hajj ul Ifraad
Posted: Aug 11, 2019
When it comes to Hajj ul Tamatu, so this is a mandatory pilgrimage for those people who live more than 48 miles from Makkah. While Hajj ul Ifraad is fixed for those who live within 48 miles of Makkah. However, there is no objection for those who permanently dwelled more than 48 miles from Makkah to perform Ifraad. Hajj ul Tamatu can also be performed from the people who live within 48 miles of Makkah. Yet, both pilgrimages can be changed in certain conditions.
The people who want to perform Umrah-ul-Mufradah, so in such a case Hajj ul Ifraad is obligatory on them to proceed distinctly. If it is possible for the pilgrim to perform only one of them, so his obligation will be to perform that only. If it is possible for the pilgrim to perform one of them at one time and the other at another time, he must perform each of them at the time possible. Yet, if the pilgrim is able to perform both together, then he must perform them at the same time. In such circumstances, it is the collective opinion among the scholars that as a matter of caution, he must give priority to the Hajj over the Umrah-ul-Mufradah.
Though all the rituals are common to Hajj-ul-Ifraad and Hajj-ul-Tamatu, however, there are some certain differences between both of them.
- It is necessary for Hajj ul Tamatu that Umrah-ul Tamatu must come first and both be performed in the same year, as above said. Yet, that is not essential for Hajj-ul-Ifraad.
- Slaughtering animal for Hajj ul Tamatu is mandatory, while on the contrary such obligation is not required for Hajj-ul-Ifraad.
- It is not permissible to Hajj ul Tamatu to give priority by choice to make Tawaf or Sa’y over the two stops. On the other hand, it is compulsory for Hajj-ul-Ifraad.
- Regarding wearing ihram for Hajj ul Tamatu is worn in Makkah. While for Hajj-ul-Ifraad, it depends upon either the pilgrim lives in Makkah or not.
- Umrah-ul-Tamatu' must be performed before Hajj ul Tamatu, but that compulsion is not required for Hajj-ul-Ifraad.
- As a matter of obligatory caution, in Hajj-ul-Tamatu', it is not allowed to make an optional Tawaf after wearing the ihram in Hajj ul Tamatu as a matter of obligatory caution, but that is permitted in Hajj-ul-Ifraad.
If a pilgrim wears ihram for an optional Hajj-ul-Ifraad through Top 10 UK Umrah Agents For Pilgrimage Services, so he is allowed to change his Niyyah (intention) to Umrah-ul-Tamatu' by carrying out Taqsir. And thus coming out of ihram, unless he has recited Talbiya after Sa’y, so in such case, the change is not allowable.
If a pilgrim wears ihram for Hajj-ul-Ifraad and enters Makkah, he is allowed to perform an optional Tawaf. However, it is obligatory for pilgrims to repeat the Talbiya after the prayers for the Tawaf as a matter of gratuitous precaution (al ahwatil awla). if he did not change his intention to Hajj-ul-Tamatu' while it was allowable to do so. This such precautionary portion also applies to obligatory Tawaf.
