Question:

A person is performing tamattu‛ hajj. When he completed his ‛umrah,
he cuts only a few strands of hair. He then tied the ihram for hajj. Is
there any fine to be imposed on him?

Answer:

The mutamatti‛ who cuts only a few strands of hair after his ‛umrah
does not become halal – does not come out of his ihram. His previous
ihram still applies. Since he must have worn normal clothes for a few
days, one dumm and one sadaqah will be obligatory on him. The
sadaqah is imposed because he cut a few strands of hair while he was
in ihram. The dumm is imposed because he wore stitched garments. It
is possible that he may have committed other “offences” of ihram.
However, because they are interlocked, only one dumm will be
obligatory. It is not necessary for a mutamatti‛ to shave his head
before starting the actions of hajj.

Observe the following from Ghunyah an-Nasik with regard to
interlocking offences:

Allah ta‛ala knows best.
