• Hajj al-Ifrad

    Hajj al-Ifrad (Arabic: حج الإفراد) involves making one Niyyah for the sole purpose of performing Hajj without Umrah. This method of performing Hajj is ideally for those living in Makkah and within the Miqat boundaries. A pilgrim who performs Hajj al-Ifrad is called a Mufrid.

    Step by Step Method

    • Enter into the state of Ihram at the Miqat with the intention of performing Hajj.
    • Upon reaching Makkah, perform Tawaf al-Qudum.
    • Perform two Rakats of Salah at Maqam Ibrahim (if possible) and partake in the drinking of Zamzam water.
    • After TawafSa’i can be performed immediately or it can be delayed until after the performance of Tawaf al-Ziyarah. Delaying the Sa’i is recommended.
    • You must not perform Halq or Taqsir. You should remain in a state of Ihram between Umrah and Hajj and only relinquish it on Yawm al-Nahr.
