Performing tamaatu hajj if umrah was done in the months of hajj

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: I have performed Umrah recently on 13 Zul Qadah. Reason was that I had to stay in Jeddah and leave for HAJJ on 7 zul hajj from Jeddah. I was told to perform umrah then go to jeddah as I was coming from taif. Now, can I perform niyyah of ifrad or tamattu?

If I perform Ifrad, must I do qurbaani? If so, will it be considered as wajib or sunnah?

I am staying in Jeddah for 3 weeks but my desire is to perform Ifrad hajj as in Ifrad it’s sunnah and person of Ifrad is free to go for tawaf ziyaarah after rami and qasr. I prefer Ifrad but umrah in shawwal & zulqadah am I obliged for tamattu or niyyah counts?


A: Since you had performed umrah in the months of Hajj, the Hajj you carry out will be a tamatu hajj. You will put on ihraam for Hajj and you should not perform another umrah before Hajj. Since your Hajj will be a tamattu Hajj, you will also have to slaughter a damm-e-shukar.

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