Is it permissible to do ‘umrah at any time of the year? Or is it not permissible to do it except during the months of Hajj?.
It is permissible to do ‘umrah on all days of the year, even during the months of Hajj. If a person does it during the months of Hajj and does Hajj after that in the same year, then he is said to be doing tamattu’ for ‘Umrah and Hajj. If he does it with Hajj, then he is doing qiraan and combining Hajj and ‘umrah. Both those who are doing tamattu’ and those who are doing qiraan must offer a hadiy of an animal that is acceptable as an udhiyah, if he is not a resident of Makkah. If the pilgrim does ‘umrah in Dhu’l-Hijjah after the days of al-Tashreeq, it is permissible and he does not have to offer a hadiy.
And Allah is the source of strength. May Allaah send blessings and peace upon our Prophet Muhammad and his family and companions. End quote.
