Kinds of Hajj
1. Tamattu’:
• To perform ‘Umrah in the months of Hajj,
then perform Hajj
• One has to offer a sacrifice (Hadiy)
2. Qiraan:
Enter the state of Ihraam with the intention
of performing ‘Umrah and Hajj
One has to offer a sacrifice (Hadiy)
3. Ifraad :
Enter the state of Ihraam with the intention
of performing Hajj only
No Hadiy is required from him
The Prophet (Salla-Allahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) ordered his
Companions to perform Tamattu; in case they didn’t bring a
Hadiy (sacrificial animal) with them.
Narrated Ibn Abbas: “The Prophet (Salla-Allahu
‘alaihi wa sallam) appointed the following places as
Miqaat (the place for entering the state of Ihraam):
Dhul-Hulaifa for the people of Al-Madinah, Al-Juhfa
for the people of Sham, Qarn Al- Manaazil for the
people of Najd, and Yalamlam for the people of the
Yemen. So, these Meeqats are for those living at
those places, and for people of other regions who
come through them- if they are intending to perform
Hajj and ‘Umrah. Whoever is living within these
Miqaats should enter the state of Ihraam from where
he sets out from; even the inhabitants of Makkah
“from it only.” (Agreed upon)

they work long hours to
