• Hajj al-Qiran

    Hajj al-Qiran (Arabic: حج القران) involves combining Umrah and Hajj, with only one Niyyah and Ihram for both. A pilgrim who performs Hajj al-Qiran is called a Qarin. Those who live in Makkah cannot perform this type of Hajj.

    Step by Step Method

    • Enter into the state of Ihram at the Miqat with the intention of performing both Hajj and Umrah.
    • Proceed to Makkah where you will begin the rites of Umrah.
    • 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.
    • The performance of these rites will qualify as your Umrah.
    • 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.

    • You will go to Mina, Arafat and Muzdalifah where you will perform all the rites and actions of Hajj.
    • An animal sacrifice is required for Hajj al-Qiran. Sacrificial animals are available in Mina and should be able to be arranged through your agent.
