'Umrah in the months of Hajj, then left Makkah and came back
some time later

Question: Somebody comes for 'Umrah in the
months of Hajj like Dhul-Qa'dah, then he goes out of Makkah
to Madeenah and stays there until the time of Hajj. Is it
obligatory upon him to perform Tamattu' or has he to choose
any one of the three types of Hajj?
There is no obligation upon him to perform Tamattu'. He may
put on ihraam for another 'Umrah if he wishes, and becomes
Mutamatti', according to those scholars who are of the opinion
that the Tamattu' ends by travelling. He would be Mutamatti'
by this new 'Umrah, and it would be obligatory upon him to
sacrifice an animal, according to the opinion of all scholars.
When he puts on ihraam for 'Umrah coming from Madeenah and
afterwards he performs the rites of Hajj, he would become
Mutamatti'. Otherwise, if he wishes, he may return from Madeenah
for Hajj only. There is a point of dispute among the scholars,
in such a case, as to whether he has to sacrifice an animal
or not. The correct opinion is that he has to sacrifice an
animal, as the travelling to Madeenah does not break his Tamattu',
according to the most correct opinion.
