Ritual 158

All the rituals are common to Hajj-ul-Ifraad and Hajj-ut-Tamatu’. However, there are certain differences:

1. For Hajj-ut-Tamatu’, it is obligatory that Umrat-ut-Tamatu’ must come first and both be performed in the same year, as already stated; but that is not necessary for Hajj-ul-Ifraad.

2. In Hajj-ut-Tamatu’, slaughtering of an animal is obligatory, as discussed earlier on; but that is not necessary for Hajj-ul-Ifraad.

3. In Hajj-ut-Tamatu’, it is not permissible to give precedence by choice to tawaf or sa’y over the two stops. it is permissible, though, to do so in Hajj-ul-Ifraad.

4. In Hajj-ut-Tamatu’, the ihram for the Hajj is worn in Makkah. For Hajj-ul-Ifraad, it depends upon whether the pilgrim lives in Makkah or not. This will be set out below.

5. Umrat-ut-Tamatu’ must precede the Hajj; but that is not necessary for Hajj-ul-Ifraad.

6. As a matter of obligatory caution, in Hajj-ut-Tamatu’, it is not permitted to make an optional tawaf after wearing the ihram for it but that is permitted in Hajj-ul-Ifraad.
