Can a pilgrim perform two
[consecutive] ‘Umrahs (minor
pilgrimage) or more, while in the
same [garb and state of] Ihraam
(ritual consecration), without taking
it off except after he is done? Please


All perfect praise be to Allah, The
Lord of the Worlds. I testify that
there is none worthy of worship
except Him, and that Muhammad
is His slave and Messenger.

Each ‘Umrah requires an individual
[intention for] Ihraam, exactly as
every prayer requires its own
Takbeerat Al-Ihraam (opening act of
prayer, with the utterance Allahu
Akbar (Allah is Great)). It is not
permissible for a Muslim to offer
more than one prayer with a single
Takbeerat Al-Ihraam. Similarly, he
cannot perform more than one
‘Umrah while in the same Ihraam.
There is no scholar – to the best of
our knowledge – who has allowed
In order for the ‘Umrah to be
complete, a pilgrim must end his
Ihraam by shaving his head or
shortening his hair. Only when he
does that would he have done an
‘Umrah and no longer be in Ihraam.
After that, he can perform another
‘Umrah with the same garb, [but a
new intention] for Ihraam.

However, if he neither shaves nor
shortens his hair, his first ‘Umrah
would not be complete. Accordingly,
even if he made [the intention for]
Ihraam for another ‘Umrah, this
state would be invalid and his
Tawaaf would be just a voluntary act
of worship, not part of the ‘Umrah.
Also, his Sa’ee would not be
[accepted as] one of its rites, because
it is a pillar of ‘Umrah; and, it is not
possible for the pilgrim to perform
two same pillars for two different
rituals with one Ihraam. Every ritual
has its own ruling. Nevertheless, if
he ended his Ihraam of the first
‘Umrah, he could go outside the
Sanctuary and don Ihraam for
another ‘Umrah.

Allah Knows best.
