Performing another 'umrah having just done so already
*Please appropriately reference this fatwa to: www.fatwa-online.com, thankyou!*
Question: A man performed the 'umrah - and after completing it, went to Taif to do something. After completing what he had to do (in Taif) he wanted to perform 'umrah for a deceased (person), so is this permissible?

Response: There is no harm for him to do this. If a person performs 'umrah, then leaves Makkah to go to Taif or Jeddah for (some) reason, (and whilst there) it occurs to him to do 'umrah for a deceased (person), then there is no harm in that, even if he repeated this – there is no prohibition.

That which is forbidden is to remain in Makkah, and then depart to at-Tan’eem (Masjid ‘Aa.ishah) so as to return to Makkah to do another 'umrah. This is what is forbidden.
