Ritual 144

There is no objection to those residing afar to perform Ifraad or Qiraan pilgrimages as an optional pilgrimage, just as there is no objection to those residing in the vicinity performing the Tamatu’ as a provisional pilgrimage but this course is not permissible to either of them in an obligatory pilgrimage.

So performance of a Hajj-ut-Tamatu’ for those whose duty is to perform the Ifraad or Qiraan or vice versa is not permissible. However, the obligation of those who have to perform Tamatu’ can, in certain circumstances, change to Ifraad as will be explained.
