Question 45: One year, I performed `Umrah during Ramadaan. I assumed Ihraam (ritual state for Hajj and `Umrah) from the Meeqaat (sites for entering the ritual state for Hajj and `Umrah ) and then performed all the rituals of `Umrah. However, when I reached Al-Tan`im in Makkah Al-Mukarramah I was in a state of minor impurity. Unfortunately, it was possible for me to perform Wudoo (ablution) then. When I entered the Sacred Mosque, I performed congregational Salaah. After Salaah, I performed Tawaaf (circumambulation of the Ka`bah) and Sa`ee (going between Saffaa and Marwah during Hajj) while in a state of minor impurity.
