The time when someone offering Hajj Tamattu` takes off ordinary clothes

Q 1: Is it permissible for me to remove Ihram (ritual state for Hajj and `Umrah) after performing `Umrah given that I have intended to perform Tamattu` Hajj (`Umrah during the months of Hajj followed by Hajj in the same year with a break in between)?

A: The person who is performing Tamattu` Hajj should remove Ihram after performing the rituals of `Umrah such as Tawaf (circumambulation of the Ka`bah), Sa`y (going between Safa and Marwah), shaving and cutting hair. After that they may wear ordinary clothes just as the Prophet (peace be upon him) told his Companions who had not driven Hady (sacrificial animal offered by pilgrims) during the Farewell Hajj. Then, they should assume the state of Ihram for Hajj on the eighth day.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
