Hajj in Islam
- :Al-Balagh Foundation
Hajj in Islam is of three kinds:
1. Hajj Al-Ifrad.
2. Hajj Al-Qiran.
3. Hajj Al-Tamattu.
The difference between both Hajj al-Ifrad, Hajj al-Qiran, and Hajj al-Tamattu, is that the first two are incumbent on the inhabitants of Mecca, (those who do not live a distance of more than l6 farsakhs (nearly 86 Kilometers from Mecca). However, Hajj al-Tamattu is incumbent on the Muslims who live more than 86 kilometers away from Mecca.
This Hajj consists of two compulsory rites:
1. Umrah al-Tamattu.
2. Hajj al-Tamattu.
