Al – Taqseer
It is the fifth obligation in Umrat-ul-Tamat'toe. Its meaning is to cut some hair of the head or beard or mustache. It is necessary that this is done with the intention of attaining nearness to Allah and it is not enough for Taqseer merely to pluck out hair. As a matter of caution, it is preferable to cut hair rather than nail.
Taqseer completes the Umrat-ul-Tamatoo. It is not permissible to shave off the head as to do so is forbidden and attracts, as a matter of caution, a penalty of a sheep if one does so knowingly and deliberately.
If a pilgrim has sexual intercourse after Saee but before Taqseer knowingly and deliberately he is liable to a penalty of a camel. However, if he did so in ignorance of the rule, he is relieved of the penalty.
Taqseer must follow Saee and it is not permissible to perform it before Saee.
Taqseer is not obligatory immediately after Saee and it is permissible to do Taqseer where one pleases, whether near Marwah or at one's house or other place.
If a pilgrim deliberately omits to perform Taqseer and wears ihram for Hajj, his Umrah is invalidated and obviously his Hajj changes to Ifraad. He must perform the Umrat-ul-Mufradah later and, as a matter of caution, repeat the Hajj in the following year.
If a pilgrim omits Taqseer by oversight and proceeds to wear ihram for Hajj, his Umrah and ihram are valid but, as a matter of caution, he must pay a penalty of a sheep.
In Umrat-ul-Tamatoo when a pilgrim performs Taqseer, all the prohibitions in the state of ihram are lifted including shaving off the head but as a matter of caution, it is lawful to shave the head within thirty days from the day of Idd-ul-Fitr, but not after the period. If he does shave after the period knowingly and deliberately, he must pay, as a matter of caution, the penalty of a sheep.
In Umrat-ul-Tamat'toe, Tawaaf ul-Nisa is not obligatory but there is no objection in performing it.
