Rules of Umrah - Hajj And Umrah Guide



AlSafar Hajj and Umrah Guide
to help you prepare for the sacred pilgrimage...


17. In Arabic Umrah means “to visit a populated place”. As a technical term used in the Shari’ah, Umrah means to perform Tawaf of Ka’bah and Sa’ey between Safa and Marwa, after assuming Ihram, either from a Miqat or a place in Hill. Umrah is also called Hajjul Asghar.

18. Hadrat Abu Hurayrah narrated that Rasulullah said ”Umrah becomes an atonement for the sins committed between one and the next Umrah”. (Bukhari, Muslim)

19. It is narrated by Hadrat Abdullah ibn Masud and Jabir that Rasulullah said “Perform Hajj and Umrah again and again for both remove poverty and sins in the same way as the furnace removes the impurities of gold, silver and iron”. (Tirmidhi and Nasa’i)

20. Hadrat Abdullah ibn Abbas narrated that Rasulullah said “The recompense of the Umrah performed in the month of Ramadan is equal to that of one Hajj. According to a Hadith Rasulullah said “Performing Umrah in Ramadan is equal to performing Hajj with me”. (Bukhari, Muslim)

21. A Muslim who can afford to reach Makkah Mukarramah, it is Sunnatul Mu’akkadah (a compulsory Sunnah) for him to perform Umrah once in his lifetime and it is Mustahabb (desirable) to perform more than one. It is, however, prohibited to perform Umrah from the 9th to 13th Dhul Hijjah.

22. Faraid (duties) of Umrah: They are two in number:

(a) To assume Ihram, which is accomplished after a person recites Talbiyah with the intention of Umrah.

(b) To perform Tawaf

23. Wajibat of Umrah: These are also two in number:

(i) Sa’ey between Safa and Marwah (after Tawaf) and to begin it from Safa and to end it at Marwah.

(ii) Have the head shaved or hair cut short (it is Wajib to trim up to 1/4th of the head, and Sunnah if the whole head is shaved).
