How to Perform Umrah

21 Jun 2019

Umrah obligations that have significance for Muslims around the world. Umrah is not as obligatory as hajj, but even so it is considered an important part of worship and Muslims from all over the world travel to Mecca and Medina to perform Umrah. The Umrah performed during the month of Ramadan is considered to be equal in reward to the realization of the Hajj. Cheap Umrah Packages services offers by companies for pilgrims.

However, this is also a bitter reality that most pilgrims traveling to the Holy Kingdom do not know how to perform Umrah according to the blessed way of Prophet Muhammad (SAW). This is very necessary to perform Umrah according to the teachings of Prophet Muhammad (SAW) so that it is acceptable to Allah (S.W.T). Here is a brief guide to perform the obligation of Umrah.

Ihram

First, a pilgrim must enter the state of Ihram. This is done by bathing, cutting the nails and hair, using two simple white clothes. After entering the state of Ihram, things like hunting, perfumed and sexual relations are prohibited.

Tawaf e Kaba or hijr e Aswad

The next step is to enter the Great Sacred Mosque of Mecca for Tawaf. It is recommended to enter the mosque through the Bab-as-Salam Gate of Kaaba by placing your right foot in the mosque. The pilgrims must be in a state of ablution for making Tawaf of the Holy Kaaba. Tawaf starts from Hijr-e-Aswad (Black Stone) counterclockwise while reciting the supplications taught by Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) to his ummah. Men should keep their right shoulder during the Tawaf of Kaaba, which is called Iddtibaa. At the end of Tawaf, men should cover their right shoulder.

Safa and Marwah

After Tawaf of the Holy Kaaba, the next stage is to complete seven rounds between two hills, Safa and Marwah, which is known as Sa'i and is an important ritual of the obligation of hajj and Umrah. Also recite the holy verses of the Qur'an and supplications while standing on both hills and during Sa'i among them.

After the completion of Sa'i, the pilgrims cut their hair. Men have to shave their heads or at least cut their hair. Women have to cut their hair up to an inch or two. This haircut of pilgrims is a symbol to show that the pilgrims have repented of their last sinful life and this is the beginning of their new life under the obedience and commandments of Allah (S.W.T). His Umrah is now complete and the pilgrims can now leave the state of Ihram and wear their everyday clothes. They are also now free of all the restrictions of the Ihram state.
