Qiraan, Tamattu’ and Ifraad Hajj?

Recommended Posts

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?
 
 
Answer.
 
A Qiraan Hajj refers to a person donning the Ihraam with the intention of performing Umrah and Hajj with one Ihraam during the months and days of Hajj; i.e. even after performing Umrah, the person will remain in Ihraam until Hajj is performed.
 
A Tamattu’ Hajj refers to a person donning the Ihraam with the intention of performing Umrah and Hajj with two Ihraams during the months and days of Hajj; i.e. after performing Umrah, the person will come out of Ihraam and will don the Ihraam for the second time to perform Hajj.
 
An Ifraad Hajj refers to a person donning the Ihraam with the intention of performing only Hajj during the months and days of Hajj.
 
It is permissible for Aafaaqis (everyone who resides outside of the Meeqat), thus including South African Hujjaj to perform the Qiraan, Tamattu’ and Ifraad Hajj. It is more virtuous to perform a Qiraan Hajj (provided one is able to abide by the laws of Ihraam), then a Tamattu’ Hajj and then an Ifraad Hajj respectively. However, a resident of Makkah Mukarramah may only perform an Ifraad Hajj. (Muallimul Hujjaaj 97)
 
Note: The donning of one or two Ihraams refers to the intentions of Ihraam and does not refer to one or two sets of Ihraam clothing. The months and days of Hajj are the months of Shawwal, Zul-Qa’dah and the first ten days of Zul-Hijjah.
