Description of Umrah
The Arabic meaning of Umrah descended from I'timar, which means 'to visit'. Nevertheless, in the Islamic realm, Umrah' refers to visit the Kaaba, performing the Tawaf, walking seven times in between Safa and Marwah. A pilgrim of Umrah affirms to the state of Ihram by shaving off or cutting his hair.
The Pillars of Umrah
• Assuming Ihram at the Miqat
• Performing the Tawaf
• Performing the 7 rounds of Sa'ey among Al Safa and Al Marwah
• Tahal-lul or coming out of Ihram
The Rules of Ihram
Ihram is the garment which is worn by any pilgrim intended to perform the Umrah. The garment is a special dress consisting of two white pieces which are not woven together. One part of the cloth is wrapped around the lower half of the body and the other piece is wrapped on one shoulder, whereas the other shoulder is uncovered.
Women are adorned with abaya and a scarf that covers their complete body from head to the toe. Women can put on this dress of any colour of their choice.
How to Perform the Umrah?
The pilgrim who earnestly wishes to perform Umrah with BIN SHAH Travel arrives at the Miqat and taking a bath is recommended for both the man and the woman who is going through her monthly periods. After the bath the man perfumes his head and the beard, but not his garments. There won’t be any problem if a pilgrim is unable to bathe at the Miqat.
Men need to change into their Ihram garments, which are known as Izar and Rida, while the women just need to make their intention in the garments they are wearing. Nonetheless, there is no specific garment for women, besides, they are restricted from wearing the Niqab or the face-veil and even gloves. Rather, they can cover their hands with their head covering and cover their faces with the upper part of their outer garment (jilbab).
With BIN SHAH Travel the pilgrim goes ahead with the intention at the Miqat and recites the prayer: 'Labayka ‘Umrah' or 'Allahumma labbayka ‘Umrah'. With this statement the rites begin. Hence, this statement begins the performance of Umrah. The heart makes the intention, whereas the mouth utters the Talbiyah.
Upon entering the holy mosque in Makkah with cheap Umrah packages, you can enter with your right foot and recite: "Bismillaah, Allahumma Salli 'Alaa Muhammad, Allahumma Ighfirli waftahli Abwaaba Rahmatik''. (In the name of Allah! O Allah! Exalt the mention of your Messenger. O Allah! Forgive my sins, and open the gates of Your mercy for me)".
With BIN SHAH Travel when you arrive at the Kaaba, the recitation of the Talbiyah stops and you can make your way towards the Black Stone to touch it with your right hand and kiss it. If you are unable, face the Stone and point to it. Be careful not to push and cause harm to others. Recite “Bismil-laah, Allahu Akbar” (In the name of Allah, Allah is the Greatest) or "Allahu Akbar" (Allah is the Greatest).
Keeping the Kaaba on the left, the pilgrim must walk. Upon reaching the Yamani corner, the pilgrim must touch it with the right hand, but must not kiss. If this act is difficult, proceed to conduct the tawaf.
Two Things in the Tawaaf
• Indulge in the Al-Idhtibaa right from the beginning of the Tawaaf till it gets over. Al-Idhtibaa is putting right arm over the Redaa and its end right right over the right shoulder.
• Perform the Ar-Raml during the first three circles and gradually speed up with smaller steps.
Make appeal right from your heart and it will benefit you. Recite whatever you wish for, directing your petitions to Allah by asking for blessings. During this time, there are no specific statements or supplications that needs to be recited at the time of the Tawaaf. Upon completing the seven circuits of Tawaaf, advance the station of Ibrahim and recite a verse.
Pray very small Rak'ahs and return to the Black Stone and touch it. Safaa is the next stage and recite the verse at the base of Safaa: “Verily, As-Safaa and Al-Marwah are from the symbols of Allah. So it is not a sin on him who performs Hajj or 'Umrah of the house (ka 'bah) to perform the going (tawaaf) between them. And whoever does good voluntarily, then verily, Allah is the All-Recognizer, All-Knower.” [Quran; 2:158]
Climb up the Safaa till the time you are spot the Kaaba and facing the Kaaba make supplications thrice: “Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar. Laa ilaaha il-lall-llaahu wadahu la shareeka lahu, lahul mulku wa lahul hamdu, wa huwa 'alaa qulli shay'in qadeer. Laa ilaaha il-lall-llaahu wahdahu, anjaza wa'dahu, wa nasara 'abdahu, wa hazamal ahzaaba wahdahu" (Allah is the Greatest, Allah is the Greatest, Allah is the Greatest. None has the right to be worshipped except Allah alone, Who has no partner. To Him belongs the dominion, to Him belongs all praise, and He has power over everything. He fulfilled His promise, gave victory to His servant, and defeated the confederates alone.)
Descend the Safaa and proceed towards Marwah, running in between the green lights. When you reach Marwah, climb and repeat the same procedure without reciting anything. This finishes one round. While running between the mountains, you need not recite anything. In the end, men need to get a haircut or undergo complete shaving and women need to trim their hair by a finger tip from the end. You have completed your Umrah rituals finally with cheap Umrah packages.
