Q. What is a Qiraan, Tamattu’ and Ifraad Hajj? Can it be done by a South African and a resident of Makkah Mukarramah too? Can everyone do it?


A. A Qiraan Hajj refers to a person adorning the Ihraam with the intention of performing Umrah and Hajj with one Ihraam during the Months and days of Hajj.

A Tamattu’ Hajj refers to a person adorning the Ihraam with the intention of performing Umrah and Hajj with two Ihraams respectively during the Months and days of Hajj.

An Ifraad Hajj refers to a person adorning the Ihraam with the intention of performing one Hajj only with one Ihraam during the Months and days of Hajj.

It is permissible for non-residents (Aafaaqi’s) of Makkah Mukarramah and South African Hujjaj etc. to perform the Qiraan, Tamattu’ and Ifraad Hajj although it is more virtuous to perform a Qiraan Hajj, then a Tamattu’ Hajj and then an Ifraad Hajj respectively. However, a resident of Makkah Mukarramah can only perform an Ifraad Hajj only. (Muallimul Hujjaaj 97)

Note: The difference of one or two Ihraams refers to the intentions made respectively and not necessarily the adorning of separate Ihraam clothing. The Months and days of Hajj include the Month of Shawwal, Zul-Qa’dah and the first ten days of Zul-Hijjah.
