Q: What is the ruling on a person who, after having performed `Umrah (lesser pilgrimage) for himself, performed an `Umrah on behalf of his father from the place specified for entering the state of Ihram (ceremonial state for Hajj and `Umrah) in Makkah, namely, Al-Tan`im? Is such an `Umrah valid, or must he begin the state of Ihram from the original Miqat (sites for entering the ceremonial state for Hajj and `Umrah)?

A: If you perform an `Umrah for yourself and end the state of Ihram then you wish to perform `Umrah on behalf of your deceased or handicapped father, you must go out to the Al-Hil (places outside the borders of Haram "the Sacred Mosque") to a place such as Al-Tan`im to resume the state of Ihram for `Umrah from there. Thus, you do not have to travel to the Miqat.

May Allah grant us success! May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family and Companions!
