Questions on ‘Umrah

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Mahmoodiyah


Mufti sahib Assalamualaikum My friend is going for Umrah on Sunday this week he asked a question that

Q1- If a person has small hair will it be permissible for him to cut the hair with hair cutting machine when coming out  of Ihram instead of shaving the hair?

Q2-After completing Umrah and staying in Makkah when going for Ziyaarah to Tan’eem masjid Aisha and going for Ziyaarah  in places out of Meeqaat will it be compulsory to put on Ihram when coming back to Makkah? please provide answers as soon as possible Jazakumullah. Wassalaam





1.      If ones hair is smaller than one finger joint length then it will be Waajib to shave the head at the time of coming out of Ihraam and it will not be permissible to trim it.  However, if ones hair is longer than a finger joint length then he will have the option of either shaving it or trimming it but shaving the head is more virtuous.  (Raddul Muhtaar, Vol. 2, page 197, Mu’allimul Hujjaj, page 176)

2.      After completing Umrah, if one goes for Ziyaarah beyond the Meeqaat e.g. to Madinah then he will have to don the Ihraam on returning to Makkah, be he returning with the intention of Umrah or Hajj or not.

If after completing the Umrah one goes for Ziyaarah within the Meeqaat i.e. within the Hil (places between the Meeqaat and the Haram) e.g. Tan’eem then he will have to don the Ihraam on returning to Makkah if he returns with the intention of performing Hajj or Umrah, otherwise not.  (Raddul Muhtaar, Vol. 2, page 167-169, Mu’allimul Hujjaj, page 95-96)
