Hajj al-qiran

From WikiHaj

Hajj al-qiran (حج القران) and hajj al-ifrad are obligatory for people who reside within the holy city of Mecca or those who are settled at a distance less than the aforementioned one.

Hajj al-qiran differs from hajj al-ifrad mainly in two aspects: animal slaughtering and becoming muhrim.

During hajj al-qiran, the animal for slaughtering should accompany the person wearing ihram, thereby animal slaughtering is obligatory for him. Likewise, in the hajj al-qiran, ihram is carried out by saying talbiya or by ish'ar or taqlid, but in hajj al-ifrad, ihram is materialized only by saying talbiya.
