Another umrah from Tan'eem.1440/2019

By 0


*On a comparison note, when you are in Makkah settled in your hotel and you have a choice today between a Umrah or to go for tawaaf then know that it is better to do a Umrah unless you can do tawaaf continuously that exceed the time taken to do a Umrah. If a Umrah nowadays may take you 4 to 5 hours to complete, then you should do tawaafs that exceed 4 to 5 hours to excel in sawaab. So on a normal comparison spectrum, it is better to do Umrah because nafil tawaafs normally finish shorter than Umrah consumption time.* 

*But if one can do tawaaf longer than Umrah time, then it is better to do tawaaf:*
 وَنَظِيرُهُ مَا أَجَابَ بِهِ الْعَلَّامَةُ الْقَاضِي إبْرَاهِيمُ بْنُ ظَهِيرَةَ الْمَكِّيُّ حَيْثُ سُئِلَ هَلْ الْأَفْضَلُ الطَّوَافُ أَوْ الْعُمْرَةُ مِنْ أَنَّ الْأَرْجَحَ تَفْضِيلُ الطَّوَافِ عَلَى الْعُمْرَةِ إذَا شَغَلَ بِهِ مِقْدَارَ زَمَنِ الْعُمْرَةِشامي

*From Makkah, to do another Umrah, you only need to go to the limit of Haram and not to Miqaat. It is sunnah to go to the limit of Haram-Tan`eem- or Masjid Aisha for Umrah ihraam. It is sunnah for both men and women staying in Makkah to wear the Ihraam of their Umrah from Masjid Aisha. And this sunnah was not only to women but also to men also. It is wrong to say that only women can do so.*

 *The proof is that Rasouloullah Swalallahou `Alaihi Wasallam gave order to the brother of Aisha r.a.-Abdur Rahman r.a.- to go and perform Umrah together with his sister Aisha. After Hajj of Rasouloullah SAW and his Sahabahs r.a., Hazrat Aisha requested that she do another Umrah because she could not complete her Umrah due menses when they reached Makkah. As such she complained that everyone is going with a Umrah and a Hajj and she is going with only a Hajj. The concept of competition between sahabahs was on deen and good actions. Not on wealth possessions. So reported in Bukhari that Rasouloullah SAW called Abdur Rahman r.a. and ordered him to take his sister Aisha r.a. to the limit of Haram and then perform Umrah from there. So they went to the place where nowadays is Masjid Aisha r.a. in Tan`eem to wear their Ihraam of their Umrahs. Then both of them went Makkah in Labbaiks to perform tawaaf and safa marwah. When they finished, both of them came Muhassab-Abtah- near Aziziyah in Makkah where Rasouloullah Swalallahou `Alaihi Wasallam and the sahabahs were waiting for them.  Rasouloullah SAW asked them: ‘’Did you both finished your Umrahs?’’ They replied ‘’yes’’.(Bukhari)*bukhari

حتى نزل المحصب ونزلنا معه فدعا عبد الرحمن بن أبي بكر فقال اخرج بأختك من الحرم فلتهل بعمرة ثم افرغا ثم ائتيا ها هنا فإني أنظركما حتى تأتياني قالت فخرجنا حتى إذا فرغت وفرغت من الطواف ثم جئته بسحر فقال هل فرغتم فقلت نعم
فنزلنا المحصب فدعا عبد الرحمن فقال اخرج بأختك الحرم فلتهل بعمرة ثم افرغا من طوافكما أنتظركما ها هنا فأتينا في جوف الليل فقال فرغتما قلت نعم

*As such it is sunnah to perform another Umrah during your stay in Makkah and sunnah to go Masjid Aisha in Tan`eem to wear your ihraam from there and then proceed to Makkah for Tawaaf and Safa Marwa. Rasouloullah Swalallahou Alaihi Wasallam said: Perform Hajj and Umrah one after the other because these two will annihilate poverty and sins-Ibn Majah.*
عَنْ عَاصِمِ بْنِ عُبَيْدِ اللَّهِ عَنْ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ بْنِ عَامِرٍ عَنْ أَبِيهِ عَنْ عُمَرَعَنْ النَّبِيِّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ قَالَ تَابِعُوا بَيْنَ الْحَجِّ وَالْعُمْرَةِ فَإِنَّ الْمُتَابَعَةَ بَيْنَهُمَا تَنْفِي الْفَقْرَ وَالذُّنُوبَ كَمَا يَنْفِي الْكِيرُ خَبَثَ الْحَدِيدِابن ماجة

*After Umrah, it is necessary for men to shave hair if short hair. Even if no hair, then still one need to pass blade over the whole head to come out of ihraam. Women should cut 2 cms of their whole hair lot to come out of Ihraam. A minimum of a quarter of the head/hair is absolute necessity to come out of ihraam. Without shaving for men(if long hair, then can cut short) and cutting for women, one does not come out of ihraam. And all those prohibitions (like perfume, sewn cloth for men, husband wife intimacy, etc) of Ihraam stays prohibited until shaving and cutting done.*
