Question:

A mutamatti‛ (person performing tamattu‛) or mufrid (person
performing ifrad) wants to perform the sa‛3y of hajj before ‛id. Is this
permissible? If he can, is it necessary for him to perform a tawaf for it?
Will he perform this tawaf while in ihram or without it? Is there any
proof for performing the sa‛iy before hand bearing in mind that the
Hanafis have this principle:

Answer
The Ahadith state that Rasulullah sallallahu ‛alayhi wa sallam performed
sa‛iy two times. Since the time of each one is not mentioned, there is
no harm in performing it before hand.

Therefore, in the above case, a mutamatti‛ or mufrid can perform the
sa‛iy of hajj before ‛id, even though it is superior to perform it after
tawaf-e-ziyarat. A sa‛iy without a tawaf is not prescribed. Furthermore,
the tawaf and the sa‛iy must be performed in a state of ihram. As for
the principle which you quoted, it is with reference to ramy,
slaughtering of the animal and shaving of the head; and not with
reference to tawaf-e-ziyarat and sa‛iy.

Observe the following Ahadith in which mention is made of
performing sa‛iy two times, but the times are not mentioned.

Allah ta‛ala knows best.
