Dr. Muzammil H. Siddiqi, current President of the Fiqh Council ofNorth America, states:

“For those who do Hajj Ifrad (those performing Hajj only) or Qiran (those performing Hajj and Umrah at once) it is permissible to perform Sa’i before going to Mina on the 8th of Dhul Hijjah. However, Sa`i cannot be done alone, they have to do first Tawaf and then Sa`i.”

Allah Almighty knows best.
