Assuming Ihram for `Umrah at the end of Ramadan and performing Tawaf and Sa`y in the first night of Shawwal

Q 4: Is the person who enters Ihram (ritual state for Hajj and ‘Umrah) on the last day of Ramadan and only reaches the Sacred House on the first night of Shawwal considered to be performing Tamattu‘ Hajj (‘Umrah during the months of Hajj followed by Hajj in the same year with a break in between) or not? What is the ruling on a pilgrim who assumed Ihram from Jeddah and not from the Miqat (site for entering the ritual state for Hajj and ‘Umrah), then reached the Sacred House and performed Tawaf (circumambulation around the Ka‘bah) and Sa‘y (going between Safa and Marawah during Hajj), then went to Al-Madinah, and before he returned to Makkah, he assumed Ihram from Al-Madinah, then went to Makkah to perform Tawaf and Sa‘y between Safa and Marawah? Is his Tawaf sufficient for him instead of the first required Damm (sacrificial animal offered as an atonement) he had to offer or not?

A: Firstly, anyone who assumes Ihram for ‘Umrah at the end of Ramadan and performs Tawaf and Sa‘y only on the first night of Shawwal, then performs Tahallul (removal of the ritual state for Hajj and ‘Umrah) after finishing the ‘Umrah and afterwards performs Hajj (Part No. 11; Page No. 330) in the same year, this is not considered performing Tamattu‘ Hajj because his Ihram for ‘Umrah was not performed during the months of Hajj. Secondly, a person who assumes Ihram for ‘Umrah after going beyond the Miqat, then performs ‘Umrah and travels to Al-Madinah, then assumes Ihram at the Miqat for another ‘Umrah, then performs it, his second ‘Umrah will not cancel the first required Damm which he had to offer for passing beyond the Miqat without assuming Ihram in his first ‘Umrah.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
