Rituals of Umrah

What is the Umrah and how do I perform Umrah correctly?

Umrah is to visit Masjid Haram in Makkah and make some specific manasikto get closer from Allah as written in holly Quran (وَأَتِمُّوا الْحَجَّ وَالْعُمْرَةَ لِلَّهِ ۚ) (Al Baqara 196) and complete the Hajj or umra in the service of Allah. And, as the prophet Muhamed (peace be upon him) said in Hadith العمرة إلى العمرة كفارة لما بينهما، والحج المبرور ليس له جزاء إلا الجنة “Whoever performs Hajj and does not commit any obscenity or commit any evil will go back (free of) sin as on the day his mother bore him.” [Reported by Al-Bukhari] Prayer in Masjid Haram is said to be better 100,000 prayers in other mosques.

Who can perform Umrah?

An aware, Muslim adult.

Rituals of Umrah

The pilgrim performs a series of rituals in the order as follows:

Umrah performance in details

Forbidden things while performing Tawaf

Other things to avoid

Supplication during Tawaf (Du`aa during Tawaf)

The portion of the wall between Hajarul Aswad and the door of Ka’bah, is know as Multazam , this is the place where Du’a is accepted in shaa Allah (as prophet peace be upon him told us)

During Tawaf its prefered to recite these supplications:

Experience of Umrah

The Five Pillars of Islam are the framework of the Muslim life. They are the testimony of faith, prayer, giving zakat (support of the needy), fasting during the month of Ramadan, and the pilgrimage to Makkah once in a lifetime for those who are able (it`s obligation once in a lifetime for those who are physically and financially able to perform it).

So all Muslims hope to visit Makkah and Madina to make Hajj or Umrah one day.

For me, my first Umrah trip was in December 2015 . I was alone coming from Tokyo, Japan. When I was in the airplane and heard the announcement of Makkah Miqat (who says that we are near to reach the Haram Zone and should change clothes and wear Ihram and recite Talbiah), when I heard that we exceeded the Haram zone, my tears fell down continually for more than 25 minutes! I couldn't believe that I will make Umrah and will see Ka`ba Sharif for the first time not on TV or in a magazine. I saw a lot of Ka’bah still pictures in the past, and now I could finally see it myself.

I had already changed my clothes to Ihram and intended to perform Umrah as soon as I arrived in Makkah. I arrived in Makkah at 11 PM, entered the hotel, put my suitcase in my room and hurried to Masjid Haram. I was lucky because my hotel was walking distance from Masjid Haram, so I got out of my hotel and found the gate of Masjid Haram. Even as I exceeded the gate of Haram, I couldn`t see Ka`ba because Masjid Haram has a lot of gates and a very huge space. I asked someone how to reach Ka`ba, he said after that wall you can see it. I walked slowly and exceeded the wall and saw Ka`ba for the first time in my life! I stopped a moment and cheered: Ya Allah Ya Allah, Allah Akbar Allah Akbar Here is the center of the earth, here is the center of Muslim prayer around the world. After I confirmed that I wasn’t dreaming, I started Tawaf and the other Umrah Manasik. During Tawaf, I recited all kinds of Du’aa and asked Allah to give me all I want and I need and to forgive all my sins and to have mercy on my deceased parents, and so on.

I finished all Umrah rituals safely and easily. It was a December, so Masjid Haram was not very crowded and the weather was fantastic. I felt a sense of relief after I got my hair cut. This haircut means I’ve finished performing Umrah and I can ‘release’ my Ihram state. Alhamdulillah.

The timing is very important. I recommend for you to make Umrah at night, especially after midnight because in Salat time the Tawaf area is closed before Azan until Salat finishes. Also between November and March the weather in Makkah and Madina is fine and bearable. On the other hand, Umrah in Ramadan is very different and has a great reward as prophet Muhammed (peace be upon him) told us.

After I made farewell Tawaf, I looked at Ka`ba but I haven’t been able to say goodbye. I wish that I could visit it again and again, next time not alone but with my family.
