Wa `alaykum As-Salamu waRahmatullahi wa Barakatuh.
In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.
All praise and thanks are due to Allah, and peace and blessings be upon His Messenger.
In this fatwa:
2- If he has performed all of the three, the second and final release also occurs.
In responding to your question, Sheikh Ahmad Kutty, a senior lecturer and an Islamic scholar at the Islamic Institute of Toronto, Ontario, Canada, states:
There are two types of release from Hajj; scholars refer to it as the first and the second release.
If, on the other hand, he has performed all of the three, the second and final release also occurs, and hence he is free of all restrictions, including spousal relations.
Allah Almighty knows best.
