  • Virtues of Umrah ‫‏‬²  Umrah is expiation for the sins committed between it and another Umrah.(Bukhari, Muslim)²  The act of Umrah is known to cleanse one’s soul from past committed sins.²  It is advised to do Umrah more than once in your lifetime so that it can actas a washing of the sins from the last time one performed Umrah.²  Performing Umrah also protects one from poverty since they are there solelyfor the sake of Allah(SWT) spending their wealth and time in completing thedeed.²  Like Hajj, the act of Umrah is amongst the best deeds one can perform whenpleasing Allah (swt).²  In the blessed month of Ramadan, the reward of performing Umrah is equalto that of performing Hajj with the Prophet (S).²  Another great virtue of Umrah is that if one passes away in their journey ofUmrah, the reward for them is Jannah.

  • 1. IHRAM«  The literal meaning of Ihram is to make haraam(forbidden).«  When a haji pronounces the Niyyah (intention) Umrahand utters Talbiyah, certain halaal (permissible) thingsbecome haraam for him.«  The two sheets that a haji wears are figurativelyknown as Ihram but the real Ihram is Niyyah &Talbiyah.«  If someone wears these two sheets and does notdeclare his intention and utter Talbiyah, he does notbecome a Muhrim.«  That is why, before Niyyah and Talbiyah, he can coverhis head during two rakahs of Nafl, an act which is notallowed in the real state of Ihram.
  • Ihram For Men and WomenMen-Ihram for men consists of two pieces ofwhite, unsewn cloth, One of the piece (izar) iswrapped round the midriff to cover his body fromjust above his navel to his ankles, and the other(Rida) is draped around his shoulders to coverthe upperbodyBELTWomen-According to many hadiths, it is notnecessary for a woman to wear special clothingwhile in a state of ihram. Women are expected towear clothing that conceals the shape andcovers the body completely, leaving only theirfaces and hands exposed. Accordingto some authors, however, gloves can be worn.
  • 2.Intention and Talbiyah. Now uncover your head and declare yourintention. It is assumed that you are performing Hajj al-Tammatu in whichUmrah is performed first as described later in the "Kinds of Hajj".allaahumma innee ureedul umrata fayassirhaalee wataqabbalhaaminneeImmediately after that utter the words of Talbiyah three times and as oftenafterwards as possible. If you dont remember it, you can say its translationin English or in any other language but Talbiah or its translation ispronounced in a loud voice by men and in a subdued voice by women.!
  • TABIYAH"Labbayk, Allahumma Labbayk. Labbayk. La shareeka laka.Labbayk.Innal-hamda wan-nimata laka wal-mulk. La shareeka lak."“Here I am, O Lord, here I am,You indeed have no partner, here I amNo Doubt, all praise and bounties are yours,and so is the absolute Domain.You indeed have no partners, here I am”

  • Restrictions while in the HaramEvery good deed or bad deed is multiplied by 100,000timesIts plants must not be cutIts game must not be frightened,Articles lost in it must not be picked up except bysomeone making announcement to find the owner,Nor is any man to bear arms for fighting in it. Note: theabove is part of a Hadith of the Prophet (pbuh)These restrictions apply to the haram of Madinah as well.They apply to everyone whether in a state of Ihraam ornot, during any time of the year
  • 2. TAWAF OF UMRAHTawaf means circling around something . Here it means moving aroundKa bah seven times with extreme love and devotion.1.Preparation: Pass the upper sheet of Ihram from underneath the rightarm and put it on the left shoulder. This act bares the right shoulder and isknown as Iztaba. Ablutions (vudu) is essential for tawaf. Reciting of Talbiyahis stopped when you reach Hajar-e- Aswad, the starting point of tawaf.2.Niyyah (Intention): Stand in front of Ka bah facing Hajar-e-Aswad (theBlack Stone) in such a way that the whole Hajre-e-Aswad is on your rightside. To achieve this end, you may get help from the black stripe on thefloor. This stripe should be on your right side. Then without raising yourhands make Niyyah (intention) for Umrah:" O Allah, I perform Tawaf of Umrah to please You. Make it easy forme and accept it from me."
  • 4.Tawaf Starts:«  After Istilam, turn right and start tawaf counterclockwise.WARNING«  The authorities often apply perfume to Hajar-e-Aswad, RuknYamani and Multazam. If so, do not touch them while in the stateof Ihram, otherwise a dum will be required as a penalty.«  During tawaf, it is not permissible to face or turn your backtowards Ka�bah except when you are kissing or pointing towardsHajar-e-Aswad.5.Ramal:«  For the first three circuits of Tawaf of Umrah and Tawaf ofArrival, men are required to move their shoulders and walkwith quick short steps.«  This act is called Ramal and is Sunnah.«  They walk normally during the remaining four circuits.

  • 7.Hatim: Hatim is a semi-circular half-built portion which was originally apart of the Ka bah but which could not be included in the main structurewhen the Ka bah was rebuilt. It is obligatory to go around Hatim also whileperforming tawaf.8.Rukn Yamani and its Supplications: After passing the three corners of theKa bah you reach the fourth corner known as Rukn Yamani. Touch it withboth hands or with right hand. There is a beautiful supplication to be usedwhile walking between Rukn Yamani and Hajar-e-Aswad:"Rabbana atina fid-dunya hasanatan wa fil-akhirati hasanatan waqina azabin-nar."Our beloved Prophet (peace be upon him) has repeatedly recited thissupplication. The first circuit is complete when you reach Hajar-e-Aswad.

  • 13.After Completing Tawaf, proceed to Maqaam‐e Ibraaheem ‐ (ProphetIbraaheems station) Recite this verse (which means):1.Next offer two rakahs of nafls behind and close to Maqam Ibrahimwithout covering your head. If it is zawal time when sajdah is not allowed,you have to wait till this undesirable time is passed and then offer prayers.In the niyyah (intention), say that you are offering 2 rakahs of nafls wajibal- tawaf. Recite Qul ya ayya hal kafroon in the first rakah and Qulhu wallahin the second rakah. After this, supplicate to Allah in Arabic or in your ownlanguage. Ask Him whatever you wish and invoke His blessings.If it is not possible to offer this obligatory prayer near Maqam Ibrahim, it canbe offered anywhere in Mataf, or in Hatim or anywhere in Masjid al-Haram oreven at any place in Haram of Makkah.!

  • 4. At Marwah.«  When on top of marwah, praise Allah facing theKa�bah and repeat the same supplications thatwere recited at Safa.«  One trip is over, second trip will be on Safa andthird trip will be on Marwah.5.End of Sa�ey. In the same way, the seventh tripwill end at Marwah.«  In all trips the men will run between the greenpillars but the women will walk in a normal way.6.Two raka�at Nafl.

  • Shaving or clipping of hair.² After Sa�ey, men should get their headscompletely shaved or get their hair clipped tothe length of the upper third of their finger ora little more.² Both shaving and clipping are permissiblefor men, though shaving is preferable.² Women are, however, allowed to have alock of their hair clipped. They are forbiddento shave their heads.
  • Performing multiple UmrasThis practice has no basis in the Sunnah of the Prophet (pbuh) or the practiceof his companions (rAa).There is no report that the Prophet (pbuh) or the companions after himaccumulated multiple Umras while staying in Makkah waiting for Hajj.Repeating the Umra incurs hardship and causes many pilgrims to miss onFardh prayers because of tiredness.One who repeats the Umra may be compared to someone who prays theSunnah of Fajr, and while waiting for the Fardh prayer decides to stand upand repeat the Sunnah multiple times, or someone who decides to repeatthe Witr prayer after Isha.The exception here is a Umra which one performs for:A deceased personA sick) or an old person who is not able to perform Umra by himself/herself.Fulfillment of a pledge.
