I came from Al-Madinah to Makkah

Q 1: I am an Egyptian student. I went to Saudi Arabia in Ramadan to perform `Umrah (lesser Hajj). I did so then I went to Jeddah to work and try to remain there until the time of Hajj. I actually stayed there until Dhul-Qa`dah, then I went to Makkah, performed `Umrah and returned to Jeddah. I continued working until the time of Hajj when I entered Ihram (ritual state for Hajj and `Umrah) with the intention of performing Ifrad Hajj (Hajj only). I finally performed Hajj. Is it obligatory on me to offer Hady (sacrificial animal offered by pilgrims)?

A: According to the proper opinion of scholars, it is obligatory on you to offer the Hady of Tamattu` (combining Hajj and `Umrah with a break in between). This is because you performed `Umrah in the months of Hajj. Your return to Jeddah after the performance of `Umrah does not interrupt your Tamatu`.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
