Hajj meeqat off course Jeddah - Hajj Ifraad: ..


As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)

One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:

Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakaatuhu

I am in big dialema. I live in Jeddah. I have been preparing 2 perform hajj for the past 1 year. I had performed umrah in the month of shawwal without knowing that a mufrid is not supposed to perform umrah in the months of hajj. Now later i forced my husband to perform umrah in the month of dhul hijjah thinking that it is alright to perform haj e tamattu nw tat the mistake has been done. I heard that a person residing in meeqat HAS to perform Hajj e ifrad... What shud i do nw? Shud i perform hajj e ifrad or shud i go ahead n perform hajj e tamattu?? is there ny expiation for this? may Allah forgive me n guide me.

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.

Hajj of the person living within the limit of Meeqaat, off course Jeddah falls under Meeqaat limit,

He has to perform Hajj only, means Hajj without Qurabani (Sacrifice). It is because the person living within this limit usually performs Umrah several times during his stay there, as the persons concern of the question have already did.

Both husband and wife in the case question, may perform, Hajj Ifraad, means only Hajj with all of its rituals, except Qurabani as its obligatory ritual in both of the Hajj Tamttu   and Qiraan   The Umrah they (husband and wife) performed in the month of Shawwal and Dhul Hijja shall be considered as the Naffel voluntary Umrah and not a part of Hajj Tamattu or Qiraan; and this shall not be having any effect on their Hajj Ifraad.

So, they may perform Hajj Ifraad in this year itself.

Allah is All-knowing, knows best.

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahís Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is only ones. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
