When to assume the Ihraam for Hajj

Reference: ad-Durar an-Naadhirah fil-Fataawa al-Mu’aasirah – Page 401

Question: What is the [legislated] time [one is permitted] to assume the ihraam for hajj?

Response: The [legislated] time [one is permitted] to assume the ihraam for hajj are the months which Allaah has mentioned in His statement:

{The Hajj is (in) the well-known months}, [Soorah al-Baqarah, Aayah 197]

…and they are: Shawwaal, Dhul-Qi’dah and the [first] ten days of Dhul-Hijjah; So if he assumed the ihraam for hajj before these months, then according to the majority [of the people of knowledge] his ihraam is incorrect. And if he assumed the ihraam and stood in ‘Arafah before the arrival of Fajr on the night of the tenth of Dhul-Hijjah then his hajj is correct. As for the ‘umrah, then he can assume the ihraam at anytime [without restriction].

وقت الإحرام بالحج

المرجع: الدرر الناضرة في الفتاوى المعاصرة – ص401

السؤال: ما هو وقت الإحرام بالحج؟

الجواب: وقت الإحرام بالحج هو الأشهر التي ذكرها الله بقوله:

{الحج أشهر معلومات} – سورة البقرة، الآية 197

…و هي شوال و ذو القعدة و عشرة أيام من ذي الحجة، فلو أحرم بالحج قبل هذه الأشهر لم يصح إحرامه عند الجمهور. و لو أحرم و وقف بعرفة قبل طلوع الفجر ليلة العاشر من ذي الحجة صح حجه. أما العمرة فيحرم بها كل وقت.
