1. Tamattu' (Enjoyable hajj): ‘umrah and hajj are combined, but a separate ihram (intention) is made for ‘umrah and a new ihram is made for the hajj after completion of ‘umrah. The new ihram is made on the 8th of thul-hjjah for performing the rites of hajj. Therefore, the pilgrim makes ihram, tawaaf, sa’yee, and then clips his hair. After this, he leaves the state of ihram, having completed ‘umrah. On the 8th day of the month, he makes ihram (intention) for hajj and performs all of its rites.
2. Qiraan (Combination): ‘umrah and hajj are combined in one state of ihram. At ihram he intends hajj and ‘umrah (or ‘umrah first then intends hajj with it before starting the tawaaf of Arrival).
The pilgrim makes tawaaf and sa’yee. He must stay in his state of ihram (if he carries a sacrificial animal with him) until he completes the hajj. If he did not carry a sacrificial animal he should change to hajj tamattu' and come out of ihram (clipping his hair). He may delay the first sa’yee and perform it later with tawaaf of ifaadah.
3. Ifraad (Isolated or Singular hajj): The person enters the state of ihram with the intention of doing hajj only. He is required to make tawaaf al-qudoom (tawaaf upon arrival) and remains in ihram till the end of hajj.
Stating A Condition: In case he fears that which may prevent him from performing hajj (e.g. illness, fear, etc.) he may state the condition which the Prophet (Peace be upon him) taught to his ummah, saying:
“O Allah, my place is wherever you hold me up.”
So, if he is prevented or becomes disabled, then there is no expiation due upon him and he may leave his state of ihram. He has to repeat his hajj if it was his first (i.e. his obligatory hajj), otherwise he need not do so.
 Some scholars state that anyone who has not brought a sacrificial animal with him should leave the state of ihram after performing the ‘umrah as in tamattu’. The Prophet (Peace be upon him) ordered the sahabah to change to tamattu’ towards the end of his life, and when he was asked whether he had done that only for that year or forever, he (Peace be upon him) joined his fingers together and said: “The ‘umrah has entered into the hajj (i.e. as in tamattu’) until the Day of Resurrection--rather forever and ever; rather forever and ever.” (Authentic narration collected by Abu Daawood). Other scholars take his order as a preference for tamattu’ over the other types of Hajj.
