How to perform HAJJ QIRAN

Qiran stands for combining two items i.e. Umrah and hajj in one Ihram. The two are undertaken together.

One will have to perform Tawaf-al-Qudoom before Waqoof-e-Arafat. It is a Sunnaht as was practiced by the Holy Prophet (PBUH). It is to be kept in mind that Tawaf-al-Qudoom is different from Tawaf-e-Umrah. One can not substitute one with other.

After Tawaf-al-Qudoom the pilgrim has to walk in Saee between As-Safa and Al-Marwah. In case Saee after Tawaf-al-Qudoom is missed due to any reason one will have to perform this after Tawaf-e-Ifadah (Ziyarat).

hajj-e-Qiran is more suitable for people coming form outside. Those living within the boundaries of Haram are not entitled for hajj-e-Qiran. In case one does this, he will be sinner and shall have to sacrifice an animal as atonement.

Saee after Tawaf-al-Qudoom is more preferable for one performing hajj-e-Qiran. In case he puts off the Saee to be after Tawaf-e-Ifada (Ziarat) he should not observe Ramal and Iztiba during Tawaf-e-Qudoom.

One who intended to perform Tawaf-al-Qadoom in hajj-e-Ifrad followed by Saee, he should observe Ramal and Iztiba in Tawaf. However it is preferable to perform Saee after Tawaf-e-Ifada.
