The World Federation Islamic Laws

Ritual 141

It is obligatory to perform an Umrat-ul-Mufradah, if one intends to enter Makkah, for it is not permissible to do so without ihram except for those who enter and depart from there regularly like by virtue of their trade.

Similarly, if a person has completed Umrat-ut-Tamatu’ and Hajj, or after Umrat-ul-Mufradah and has left Makkah, he is permitted to re-enter without ihram before the expiry of the same month in which the Umrah was performed. As for the person who has departed from Makkah after performing Umrat-ut-Tamatu’, but before the pilgrimage, the rule will be discussed under Rule 154 below.
