Article 24- There is five conditions in Hajj al-Tamattu’:

   1- Niyyah (Intention) which is the pilgrim should intend to perform “Hajj al-Tamattu’” for Allah, therefore if this person intends some other type of Hajj to perform or has doubt about performing “Hajj al-Tamattu’” or other type of Hajj or he/she does not have pure intention for Hajj, then his/her Hajj is not correct.

   2- Both “Umrah” and “Hajj” should be performed in months of Hajj (Shawwal, Dhu’l-Qa’dah and Dhu’l-Hijjah), therefore it is not enough that a pilgrim performs all of Umrah or a part of it before the month of Shawwal.

   3- A pilgrim should perform both “Umrah al-Tamattu”’ and “its Hajj” in one year, if a perform performs one of them in this year, and the next one in another year in months of Hajj, then this Hajj is not correct.

   4- As it is said before, Ihram of “Hajj al-Tamattu’” should be from Mecca , and there is no difference between different places or regions of Mecca , it can be performed from house, mosque, or even in a street, but the best place for Ihram is “Masjid al-Haraam”.

   5- If “Hajj al-Tamattu’” is to be performed by proxy, then both “Umrah” and “Hajj” should be performed by the same person and it is not enough that a person performs Umrah and another one performs Hajj.

Article 25- It has to be done as obligatory precaution that pilgrim does not leave Mecca after performing “Umrah al-Tamattu”’ until the time of Hajj and performs Hajj, unless there is a special necessity or need that in this case as obligatory precaution the pilgrim should wear Ihram with the intention of Hajj and leave Mecca with Ihram and remain in that state in return, until he/she performs the rites of Hajj; but if wearing Ihram causes this person severe hardness then he/she can renounce that act, and there is no difference in this rulings between obligatory and Mustahab Hajj.

Article 26- Prohibition of leaving Mecca for people who have performed Umrah al-Tamattu’ is for traveling to far places, therefore going to a distance one or two parasang (each parasang is approximately 5.6 km) far from Mecca is not prohibited and people who live out of Mecca can return to their homes after performing Umrah.

Article 27- Today, Mecca has advanced to a big city, but all that is called Mecca has the rulings of Mecca , like Masjid al-Haraam that has been advanced and expanded but all of that has the rulings of Masjid al-Haraam.

Article 28- Whenever a pilgrim goes out of Mecca after performing Umrah without Ihram and pasts Miqats, then in return he/she should become Muhrim (a person who is in state of Ihram) from Mecca and perform Umrah, unless his/her return is on the same month that he/she has leaved Mecca (for instance, a pilgrim has leaved in Dhu’l-Qa’dah and has returned in Dhu’l-Qa’dah).

Article 29- A person whom his duty is to perform Hajj al-Tamattu’ cannot return to Hajj al-Ifrad or Hajj al-Qiran, unless the there is not enough time available in the way that this person cannot finish Umrah and join Hajj. In this case, the pilgrim can leave “Hajj al-Tamattu’” and make intention for Hajj al-Ifrad or Hajj al-Qiran, and performs the duties of Hajj and after finishing Hajj performs Umrah al-Mufradah (similar to other persons who perform Hajj al-Qiran and Ifrad) and the purpose of not having enough time is that pilgrim cannot perform Wuquf in Arafat from noon until the sunset of the day of Arafa.

Article 30- Whenever a woman involves with menstruation and cannot perform Tawaf and the prayer of Tawaf, which its condition is being clean, before the time of Hajj (and Wuquf to Arafa), she should make intention of Hajj al-Ifrad and goes with that Ihram to Arafat and performs the rites of Hajj, and performs Tawafs of Hajj and prayers of Tawaf after return to Mecca and becoming clean, and she should goes to Masjid al-Tan’eem for performing “Umrah al-Mufradah” after finishing Hajj and becomes Muhrim from that place and perform acts of Umrah al-Mufradah, and it is better to perform Tawaf al-Nisa’ as a precaution.

Article 31- There is no problem for women to prevent their menstruation by using pills or like them in order to perform the rites of Hajj al-Tamattu’ like Tawaf and prayer of Tawaf in the state of being clean.
