      iḥrām and its dress

      Q55. If a person wears dress after saying talbiyah, is it obligatory to repeat it?

      Answer:Repetition of talbiyah is not obligatory, though it is required on the basis of caution. In case, at the time of making intention and talbiyah, a person did not put off his stitched dress intentionally, on the basis of obligatory caution, he should repeat intention and talbiyah.

      Q56. A person who wants to perform rites of ‘umrah performs recommended ghusl for entering into the Masjid ul-ḥarām for the first time, is it recommended also to take a ghuslfor the next time/s?

      Answer:It is not specific to the first time.

      Q57. If a person comes to know after reaching his country that his dress of iḥrām was impure while he was performing rites, is he considered non-muḥrim?

      Answer:If he was ignorant of this impurity while performing the rites and he came out of iḥrām, his ṭawāf and hajj is valid.

      Q58. Is it obligatory for a person to make intention for all rites of hajj while wearing iḥrām? What is the rule for a person who does not know that hajj tamattu‘consists of ṭawāf and sa‘y other than ṭawāf and sa‘yof ‘umrah tamattu‘ and consequently does not intend for ṭawāfand sa‘y of hajj tamattu‘while wearing iḥrām? He just intended general intention for hajj.

      Answer: It is not obligatory to make intention with all details while wearing iḥrām. A general intention is sufficient for Hajj and ‘umrah as long as he performs all the rites in accurate form at their exact places.
