Visiting Madinah Munawwarah First When on Hajj Tamattu

By Mufti Ebrahim Desai


Q.) When going to Saudi Arabia for performing Tammatu Hajj, is it permissible to go to Madinah first and then, after spending a few days there, enter the state of ihram for going to Makkah to perform Umrah? Some scholars opine that those going on Tammatu Hajj must go to Makkah first in the state of Ihram. Is there a definitive ruling on this topic? [Saeed Dadabhoy]

A.) We are not aware of any differences of opinion among the reliable Fuqaha (Jurists) about one performing Tamattu to go to Madinah Munawwarah before going to Makkah Mukarramah. That is permissible. The difference is the other way round, whether a person performing Tamattu Hajj may leave Makkah or not after performing Umrah. And Allah Ta'ala Knows Best.
