Can We Make More Than One 'Umrah Per Visit? By Imaam ‘Abdul ‘Azeez ibn Baaz (rahimahullah)

Q: If someone comes to Makkah for Hajj or ‘Umrah, then is it permissible for him after that tperform another ‘Umrah for himself or on behalf of another during the very same season he came in such that he leaves Makkah to at-Tan’eem for ihram and then performs the ‘Umrah? 

A: “There is no harm in that, all praise is for Allah, if he came for Hajj or ‘Umrah and performed them on his own behalf or on behalf of someone else and then wanted to perform another ‘Umrah for himself or on behalf of someone else. There is no problem in that, but one must go outside the sanctuary for it; he must go outside the sanctuary of Makkah, at-Tan’eem or Ji’irranah or somewhere else and adorn the ihram from there, then enter (Makkah) and do the tawaf, walk between as-Safa and al-Mariah and shorten/cut the hair. This is allowed whether it be for himself, a deceased relative or friend or one who is incapable, such as the elderly… there is no harm in that. ’Aishah did this upon the instruction of the Prophet (), as she did ‘Umrah with the Prophet (), then on the night of the 13th she took permission to do ‘Umrah and he permitted her, ordering ‘Abdur Rahman ibn Abu Bakr (her brother) to take her to at-Tan’eem and then perform ‘Umrah. This is considered a second ‘Umrah from within Makkah. 

So in conclusion, there is no harm in one performing ‘Umrah or Hajj for himself then performing ‘Umrah on behalf on someone else as; it is also allowed to perform Hajj or ‘Umrah on someone else’s behalf then perform ‘Umrah for one’s own self. There is no harm in that.”
