Some Basic Terms/Different types of Hajj:

Tamattu’ HajjTamattu` means performing `Umrah during the Hajj season, and on the Day of Tarwiah a pilgrim gets into the state of Ihram for Hajj.Anyone intending to perform a Tamattu“ Hajj should, on approaching the Miqat, make intention for `Umrah.After fulfilling the Hajj rituals, one should offer a sacrificial animal. Qiran HajjIn this type of Hajj, a pilgrim should declare his intention to perform both Hajj and `Umrah together.Only when he throws at the Jamrah of Al-`Aqabah, gets his hair shaved or cut that he can put off his Ihram.However, he should offer a sacrificial animal. Ifraad HajjIn the Miqat, a pilgrim of Ifrad Hajj declares his intention for Hajj only.He maintains his Ihram up to the Day of Sacrifice. No offering is required from him. UmrahIn Arabic the word `Umrah is derived from I`timar which means a visit. However, `Umrah technically means paying a visit to Ka`bah, performing Tawaf  [Circumambulation] around it, walking between Safa and Marwah seven times.A performer of `Umrah puts off his Ihram by having his hair shaved or cut.
