Forgot to make talbiyyah for Tamattu' Hajj
*Please appropriately reference this fatwa to: www.fatwa-online.com, thankyou!*
Question: A pilgrim has put on ihraam at the meeqaat but he forgot to say talbiyyah for Tamattu' Hajj. Should he complete his rites as a Mutamatti'? What should he do if he takes off his ihraam, and puts on the ihraam for Hajj from Makkah?

Response: If he has made an intention for 'Umrah when he put on the ihraam but he forgot to say talbiyyah while he was intending for 'Umrah, he will be considered as one who uttered talbiyyah. He has to peform tawaaf, sa'ee and cutting the hair, then he takes off his ihraam. It is permissible for him to say talbiyyah on the way. If he did not say talbiyyah then there is nothing required of him because the saying of talbiyyah is only a confirmed Sunnah. He makes tawaaf, sa'ee, has his hair cut and makes it 'Umrah. This is because he had intention for 'Umrah. If he has made intention for Hajj while putting on the ihraam and the time is enough, it is preferable for him to change his pilgrimage to 'Umrah. After that, he makes tawaaf, sa'ee, has a haircut and then takes off the ihraam. Praise be to Allaah, he will be considered as a Mutamatti'.
