When Should I Do My Umrah if I Arrive on the 8th of Zul Hijjah

CategoriesHajj & Umrah [195]

Fatwa ID: 04592

Answered by: Alimah Sabrina Al-Faarsiyyah




A sister is going for Hajj InshaAllah and her haidh should end around the 8th or 9th of Dhul Hijjah. What does she do in terms of performing her Umrah? Does she do it together with her tawaaf ziyarah? Should she complete it on the 8th if possible and head to mina?




In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful





All rounds or most of ‘Umrah must be completed before the wuqūf (resting in) ‘Arafah. If one does not perform their ‘umrah before wuqūf ‘Arafah then they have to may a qadhāh of it after the days of Tashrīq (11th-13th) and give one damm (sacrifice). [Mu’allimul Hujjaj pg.216, Maktabah Thanwi]
