Performing umrah in the months of Hajj

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I am a makkah resident who has done umrah this year 1437. Insha Allah I will be doing my first hajj. I intent to do an umrah in zul qa’dah for my deceased grandmother (passed away yesterday). Since I am a Makkah resident having niyyat to do hajj; performing umrah for myself is not permitted. Is it permissible to do umrah for the deceased?


A: It is permissible for you to perform umrah in the months of hajj provided you do not intend performing hajj.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
