Q 1: I am an Egyptian student. I went to
in Ramadan to perform `Umrah (lesser Hajj). I did so then I went to
to work and try to remain there until the time of Hajj. I actually stayed there until Dhul-Qa`dah, then I went to
performed `Umrah and returned to
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)?
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.
