We are going to Hajj this year with a group. We are going to Makkah, where we will peform Umrah with the intention of Hajj Tamatu'. Then we will leave Makkah and visit Madinah (before Hajj). Then on the 7th dhil hijj we will leave Madinah and then go directly to Mina. Is this permissible? Can one leave Makkah between Umrah and Hajj?

Assalamo Alaikum,
Dear in Islam,
The answer of your question is as follows:

There are three kinds of Hajj: Ifraad, Qiraan and Tamattu¡¯.
Ifraad is to put on the special pilgrim garb (Ihram) with the intention of performing only Hajj, and to put on Ihram for performing both Hajj and Umrah together is called Qiraan. And Tamattu¡¯ is to perform Umrah first in the months of Hajj (Shawwal, Zul¡ªqa¡¯da, and Zul-hijja up to the 13th, and then perform Hajj with another Ihram in this very year without returning home.

There are some conditions for performing Hajj-e-Tamattu¡¯. One of them is to perform both Hajj and Umrah together with different Ihrams in one journey. After accomplishing Umrah in the months of Hajj, if one returns to ones¡¯ home and then comes again to perform Hajj in its particular period, the Tamattu¡¯ will be invalid but if Mutamatty (one who performs Hajj-e-Tamattu¡¯) leaves for home before Tawaf-e-Umrah or after Tawaf-e-Umrah and before shaving head (if man) or cutting hair equal to one inch (if woman) and then comes once again to perform Hajj, the Tamattu¡¯ will be valid. Likewise, after shaving or cutting hair if one goes out of Meeqat even out of Haram, Medina for stance, and then comes putting on Ihram on the Day of Tarwyah (8th Zul Hijjah) or before it with the intention of performing Hajj, the Tamattu¡¯ will be valid with no kind of harm. And Dam-e- Tamattu¡¯ (sacrifice of animal within the three days of Idul Azha) will be due on him. (Binayah V: 4 P: 233-234, Shami V: 2 P: 212)
