A pilgrim wears Ihram for Umrah only during the month of Hajj, which means when he reaches Makkah, he makes Tawaf and Sa’i for ‘Umrah. He then shaves or clips his hair. On the day of Tarwiyah, which is the eighth of Zil-Hajj. He puts on his Ihram for Hajj only and carries out all of its requirements.
A pilgrim wears Ihram for Hajj only. When he reaches Makkah, he performs Tawaf for his arrival and Sa’i for Hajj. He doesn’t shave or clip his hair as he doesn’t disengage from Ihram. Instead, he remains in Ihram till he throws stones at Jamrat Al-‘Aqabah on the Eid day. It is permissible for him to postpone Sa’I until his Tawaf for Hajj.
A pilgrim wears Ihram for both ‘Umrah and Hajj or he wears Ihram first for ‘Umrah, then makes intentions for Hajj before his Tawaf. The obligations on one performing Ifrad are the same as those on one performing Qiran, except that the latter must slaughter whereas the former is not obligated to do so. The best of the three forms is Tamattu’. It is the form that Our Prophet (Peace Be Upon Him) encouraged his followers to perform. Even if a pilgrim makes intentions to perform Qiran or Ifrad, he is allowed to change his intentions to Tamattu. He can do this even after he has performed Tawaf and Sa’i.
When Our Prophet (Peace Be Upon Him) performed Tawaf and Sa’i during the year of the Farewell Hajj with his companions, he ordered all those who hadn’t brought sacrificial animals to change their intentions for Hajj to intentions for ‘Umrah, cut their hair, and disengage from Ihram till Hajj. He said, “If I hadn’t brought the sacrificial animal, I’d have done what I’ve ordered you to do.”
- The Hajj
In the forenoon of the eighth day of Zil-Hajj, a pilgrim purifies himself once again by bathing as he did before umrah in the place in which he is staying, if convenient. He puts on his Ihram and says: “Here I am for Hajj. Here I am, oh Allah, here I am. Here I am. You have no partner. Here I am. Surely all praise, grace and dominion is yours, and you have no partners.” If he fears that something will prevent him from completing his Hajj he should make a condition when he makes his intentions, saying: “If I am prevented by any obstacle my place is wherever I am held up.” If he has no such fear, he doesn’t make this condition.
- A pilgrim goes to Mina and there prays Dhuhr, Asr, Maghrib, Isha’ and Fajr, shortening his four unit prayers so as to make them two units each, without combining them.
- When the sun rises, he goes to Arafah and there prays Dhuhr and Asr combined at the time of Dhuhr, making each one two units. He remains in Nimrah Masjid until sunset if possible. He remembers Allah and makes as many supplications as possible while facing the Qiblah. Our Prophet (Peace Be Upon Him) prayed thus: “There is no Deity but Allah alone. He has no partner. All dominion and praise are His and He is powerful over all things.”
- If he grows weary it is permissible for him to engage in beneficial conversation with his companions or reading what he can find of beneficial books, especially those concerning Allah’s grace and abundant gifts. This will strengthen his hope in Allah.
- He should then return to his supplications and be sure to spend the end of the day deep in supplication because the best of supplication is the supplication of the day of Arafat.
- At sunset he goes from Arafah to Muzdalifah and there prays Maghrib, Isha, and Fajr. If he is tired or has little water, it is permissible for him to combine Maghrib and Isha. If he fears that he will not reach Muzdalifah until after midnight, he should pray before he reaches it for it is not permissible to delay prayer until after midnight. He remains there, in Muzdalifah, making supplications and remembering Allah till just before sunrise.
- If he is weak and cannot handle the crowd during Ar-Ramy, it is permissible for him to go to Mina at the end of the night to throw stones at Jamrah before the arrival of the crowd.
