Title: Hajj-e-Baituallah
Post by: viqaruddin on October 25, 2010, 01:44:21 AM
Assalam alaikum wa wb,
Hope everyone is fine by grace Allah swt.
Since Hajj is around the corner, i thought of starting a new topic about Hajj so that all of us can chip in share our knowledge about Hajj among us.I hope and invite everyone of us to post something about Hajj even if is very small and common. The idea is to share knowledge and make Allah swt happy...

                                                      [Different types of Hajj
There are three types of Hajj: ifrad, qiran and tamattu`. Ifrad means entering into ihram from the miqat (the fixed place for ihram) with the intention of performing Hajj alone, declaring the intention to perform Hajj and chanting Labbayk: “Labbayka Allahumma Hajjan.” In this case a pilgrim remains in a state of ihram till the end of the Hajj rituals; then he takes off his ihram and may undertake all that he was forbidden to do during ihram.

 

Qiran means entering into ihram from the miqat with the intention of performing Hajj and `Umrah, declaring the intention to perform Hajj and chanting Labbayk: “Labbayka Allahumma Hajjan wa `Umrah.” Then he remains in a state of ihram till the end of the Hajj rituals. In this type of Hajj, a pilgrim has to stay in a state of ihram till he finishes the rituals of both Hajj and `Umrah. It is sufficient for a pilgrim in this case to perform Tawaf and Sa`y once each for both Hajj and `Umrah, exactly like the first type.

 

The third type of Hajj is tamattu`. Here one has the privilege of performing both Hajj and `Umrah separately in the months of Hajj. Hence, a pilgrim enters into ihram, declaring intention to perform `Umrah alone and chanting Labbayk: “Labbayka Allahumma `Umrah.” Then he takes off ihram and enjoys everything that was prohibited to him during ihram. On the eighth day of Dhul-Hijjah, the pilgrim enters into ihram again with the intention to perform Hajj and performs Hajj. In this case, a pilgrim slaughters a sacrificial animal.
