Sahih Muslim 1216a
'Ata' reported: I, along with some people, heard Jabir b. 'Abdullah saying: We the Companions of Muhammad ﷺ put on Ihram for Hajj only. Ata' further said that Jabir stated: Messenger of Allah ﷺ came on the 4th of Dhu'l-Hijja and he ﷺ commanded us to put off Ihram. 'Ata' said that he (Messenger of Allah ﷺ) commanded them to put off Ihram and to go to their wives (for intercourse). 'Ata' said: It was not obligatory for them, but (intercourse) with them had become permissible. We said: When only five days had been left to reach 'Arafa, he (Messenger of Allah ﷺ) commanded us to have intercourse with our wives. And we reached 'Arafa in a state as if we had just intercoursed (with them). He ('Ata') said: Jabir pointed with his hand and I (perceive) as if I am seeing his hand as it moved. In the (meantime) the Messenger of Allah ﷺ stood amongst us and said: You are well aware that I am the most God-fearing, most truthful and most pious amongst you. And if there were not sacrificial animals with me, I would also have put off Ihram as you have put off. And if I were to know this matter of mine what I have come to know later on. I would not have brought sacrificial animals with me. So they (the Companions) put off Ihram and we also put off and listened to (the Messenger of Allah ﷺ) and obeyed (his command). Jabir said: 'All came with the revenue of the taxes (from Yemen). He (the Messenger of Allah ﷺ) said: For what (purpose) have you entered into the state of Ihram (whether you entered into the state purely for Hajj and, Umrah jointly or Hajj and Umrah separately)? He said: For the purpose for which the Messenger of Allah ﷺ had entered. (The Messenger of Allah ﷺ had entered as a Qiran, i.e. Ihram covering both Umrah and Hajj simultaneously) Thereupon Messenger of Allah ﷺ said: Offer a sacrifice of animal, and retain Ihram. And 'All brought a sacrificial animal for him (i.e, for the Messenger of Allah ﷺ). Suraqa b. Malik b. Ju'shum said: Messenger of Allah, is it (this concession putting off Ihram of Hajj or Umrah) meant for this year or is it for ever?. He said: It is for ever.
