  1. `Umrah is obligatory one time only during a person's life for the people of Makkah or others due to the general proofs for this.Performing Ihram for `Umrah for a person who is inside the sacred area should be from outside the sacred area such as Al-Tan`im, Al-Ji`ranah or the like.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
  2. Visiting the Mosque of the Prophet ﷺ is not part of the conditions of Hajj, and neither is it one of its pillars or obligations; rather it is a recommended act (Sunnah) and can be performed at any time.Furthermore, it is compulsory that the intention for the visit should be to pray in the Masjid, and not to visit the grave. On the authority of Abu Hurairah t, who said that the Prophet ﷺsaid: “No one should journey to any Masjid except for three Masjids: the Haram Masjid, the Prophet’s Masjid and al-Aqsaa Masjid.” [ Source: Muslim.]Shayk al-Islam Ibn Taymiyyah said: “If the intention of traveling is to visit the grave of the Prophet ﷺ , but not to pray therein, then the view of the Imams and majority of scholars is that it is neither a legislated nor a commanded act. The ahadeeth about visiting the grave of the Prophet ﷺ are all weak, according to the consensus of the scholars of ahadeeth, rather they are all fabricated and none of the reliable narrators of the Sunan related any of them, nor have any of the imams used any of them as evidence.” [ Majmoo’ al- Fatawa vol.27, pg 26.] source: islamkingdom
  3. Intention For An-Nusk.

    When the person intending Ihram has finished bathing and cleaning himself and has worn his Ihram garments, and (a male) has taken off any fitted garments, he then makes the intention to commence An-Nusk, either for Hajj or ‘Umrah. It is recommended to state clearly the sequence ofNusk the person intends to perform. For instance he says, when he wishes to perform at-Tamattu’, i.e. ‘Umrah, after which he becomes released (i.e. free and disengaged from the obligations of ihram) before starting Hajj: “Labbaykal-Laahumma ‘Umuratan mutamat-ti’an biha ilal Hajj: “O Allah, I have answered Your call and here I am to serve You through ‘Umrah, after which I will become released (from the obligations of ihram) until I start Hajj,” or “Labbaykal-Laahumma ‘Umura”: “O Allah, I have answered Your call and here I am to serve You through ‘Umrah.” Then at Hajj he says: “Labbaykal-Laahumma Hajjan”: “O Allah, I have answered Your call and I am ready to serve You through Hajj.” And the person who intends Hajj al-Ifrad (Hajj alone) says; “Labbaykal-Laahumma Hajjan”: “O Allah, I have answered Your call and here I am to serve You through Hajj”; while the person who intends to merge Hajj and ‘Umrah together (Qiraan) says: “Labbaykal-Laahumma Hajjan wa ‘Umurah”: “O Allah, I have answered Your call and here I am to serve You through Hajj and ‘Umrah.” This is according to the hadeeth by Anas t, who said: “I heard the Messenger of Allah ﷺ say: “O Allah, I answered Your call and here I am to serve You through Hajj and ‘Umrah.” [ Agreed upon.] However, if one does not pronounce anything, the intention he made in his mind is enough.

  4. 1-Severe punishment for whoever intends evil in the sacred precincts, whether he performs it or not. Allah, the Most High, said: “And whoever inclines to Ilhad (evil actions) therein or to do wrong, we shall cause him to taste a painful torment.” (Al-Hajj: 25). The word Ilhad in the verse above refers to every act of disobedience towards Allah. On the authority of Ibn ‘Abbas t, the Prophet ﷺ said: “The most disliked person in the sight of Allah are three” and he mentioned among them “A Mulhid (evildoer) in the sacred precincts.” [ Source: Bukhari.] 2-Prohibition of killing or blood-spilling therein. Allah the Most High said: “And when we made the House (the Ka’bah at Makkah) a place of resort for mankind and place for safety.” (al-Baqarah: 125). Whosoever enters Makkah will find safety therein; that is why the Prophet ﷺ said: “It is not permissible for any of you to carry a weapon while in Makkah” [ Source: Muslim.] The Prophet ﷺ also said: “It was Allah who made Makkah a sacred precinct, and not the people; it is not permissible for whoever believes in Allah and the day of resurrection to spill blood in it and to fell[ Ya’did : to fell.] a tree in it.” [ Source : Bukhari.] 3-Prohibition of the disbelievers and polytheists from entering the sacred precinct (Haram). Allah, the Most High, said: “O you who believe! Verily, the polytheists are impure. So let them not come near al-Masjid-al-Haram (at Makkah) after this year.” (At-Taubah:28). And the Prophet had already ordered, while in Mina, for an announcement to be made that: “After this year, no polytheist should come for pilgrimage nor should anybody perform circumambulation of the Ka’bah naked.” [ Source : Bukhari.] 4-Prohibition of hunting, cutting of trees and picking up lost objects while in the sacred precinct. On the authority of Ibn ‘Abbas t, the Prophet ﷺ said: “Allah made Makkah a sacred precinct, for it was never permitted for anyone before me and neither is it going to be permitted for anyone after me. It has only been permitted for me for an hour of a day. None of its green plants are to be cut[ Yukhtala khalaha: to cut its viable plant.], nor its trees be felled[ Ya’did: to fell], nor its game be startled and no lost object[ Al-Laqtah: a lost object which is found, but whose owner is unknown.] is to be picked up by someone, except who wishes to notify the public (of the lost and found object).” [ Source: Bukhari] source: islamkingdom

  6. 1- The haajj leaves ‘Arafah after sunset, heading towards Muzdalifah, and it is a sunnah for the haajj to leave calmly and with dignity so as not to offend people, and to make Talbiyah to Allah Almighty.2- When the haajj reaches Muzdalifah, he should begin by performing Maghrib and ‘Isha salahs together, shortening ‘Isha salah, before taking his luggage and belongings from the passenger vehicle.3- The haajj must stay overnight in Muzdalifah this night, and perform Fajr salah early. He must not start moving from Muzdalifah before Fajr except if he has an excuse; such as being a weak woman or young boy, or those accompanying them, or those who serve the hojjaj. It is permissible for these to leave Muzdalifah at the end of the night when the moon sets.4- After the hajj performs Fajr it is desirable that he comes to the Mish’ar Haraam (sacred site or monument) and, facing qiblah, make much dhikr (remembrance) of Allah, Takbeer and supplications, raising his hands up in a sincere manner, beseeching Allah. The haajj should continue to do this until the sun shines, and anywhere he stops to do that in Muzdalifah is acceptable, for the saying of the Prophet (may the peace and blessing of Allah be upon him): “…and I stopped here and anywhere in (the area of) Jama’ it is permissible to stop.” [ Source: Muslim.] What is meant by Jama’ is Muzdalifah.5- When a haajj leaves Muzdalifah, he is advised to pick up seven pebbles to throw at the jamaraat of the first day, only, while the rest of the days he takes their pepples from Mina. It is permissible, however, to pick up pebbles from anywhere.source: islamkingdom
  7. Pillars Of Umrah

    1- Ihram: Due to the Prophet’s statement ﷺ: “Deeds are according to intentions and every person will be rewarded according to his intention. Therefore, whosoever has emigrated for the sake of Allah and His Messenger, then his emigration was for Allah and His Messenger. And whosoever emigrated for the sake of a worldly gain, or a woman “whom he desires” to marry, then his emigration is for the sake of that which “moved him” to emigrate.” [ Source: Bukhari.] 2- The Sa’y between as-Safa and al-Marwa: The Prophet ﷺ said: “Perform Sa’y (between them); indeed Allah has decreed that you perform Sa’y (between them).” [ Source: Ahmad.] 3- Tawaaf: as Allah, the Most High, said, “…and circumambulate the Ancient House.” source: islamkingdom
  8. Pillars Of ‘Umrah

    1- Ihram: Due to the Prophet’s statement ﷺ: “Deeds are according to intentions and every person will be rewarded according to his intention. Therefore, whosoever has emigrated for the sake of Allah and His Messenger, then his emigration was for Allah and His Messenger. And whosoever emigrated for the sake of a worldly gain, or a woman “whom he desires” to marry, then his emigration is for the sake of that which “moved him” to emigrate.” [ Source: Bukhari.] 2- The Sa’y between as-Safa and al-Marwa: The Prophet ﷺ said: “Perform Sa’y (between them); indeed Allah has decreed that you perform Sa’y (between them).” [ Source: Ahmad.] 3- Tawaaf: as Allah, the Most High, said, “…and circumambulate the Ancient House.” source: islamkingdom
  9. Obligatory Aspects Of Hajj

    1- Assuming Ihram from the meeqaat; the Prophet ﷺ after listing the mawaqeet said: “Those mawaqeet are for their residents and non residents who pass through them with the intention of making Hajj or ‘Umrah.” [ Source: Bukhari.] 2- Standing on ‘Arafah until sunset for those that stayed there in the day, because the Prophet ﷺ stayed there until sunset. 3- Spending the night at Muzdalifah, because the Prophet ﷺ spent the night there. He said: “My nation should take its religious rites (from me), because I do not know if I shall be with them after this year.” [ Source: Ibn Majah.] He ﷺ permitted the weak Muslims (to leave for Mina) only after the middle of the night. This indicates that spending the night in Muzdalifah is obligatory, and Allah ordered the pilgrims to engage in His remembrance at Al-Mash’ar Al-Haram (Muzdalifah). 4- Passing the night in Mina during the days of Tashreeq as it is established that the Prophet ﷺ permitted the camel herders to not spend the night at Mina. [ Source: Abu Ya’la in his Musnad.] This shows that the original ruling is that spending the night in Mina is obligatory. 5- Stoning the Jamraat: Allah says: “And remember Allah during (specific) numbered days.” (al-Baqara: 203). The specific numbered days: The days of at-Tashreeq. Stoning the pillars is a form of remembrance of Allah, the Most High, due to the Prophet’s statement ﷺ: “Indeed circumambulating the House, (the circuits) between as-Safa and al-Marwa, and stoning the pillars; all have been ordained to serve as a (form of) remembrance of Allah.” [ Source: Abu Dawud.] 6- Shaving and trimming the hair: Allah says; “Certainly, you shall enter al-Masjid al-Haram, if Allah wills, secure, (some) having their heads shaved, and (some) having their hairs cut short.” (al-Fath: 27) 7- Farewell circumambulation (Tawaaf Al-Wada’): as confirmed on the authority of Ibn Abbas t: “The people were ordered to make the last of their worship (to be) at the House, but this has been waived for the menstruating women.” [ Source: Muslim.] source: islamkingdom
  10. Visiting the Masjid of the Prophet ﷺ is not part of the conditions of Hajj, and neither is it one of its pillars or obligations; rather it is a recommended act (Sunnah) and can be performed at any time.Furthermore, it is compulsory that the intention for the visit should be to pray in the Masjid, and not to visit the grave. On the authority of Abu Hurairah t, who said that the Prophet ﷺsaid: “No one should journey to any Masjid except for three Masjids: the Haram Masjid, the Prophet’s Masjid and al-Aqsaa Masjid.” [ Source: Muslim.]Shayk al-Islam Ibn Taymiyyah said: “If the intention of traveling is to visit the grave of the Prophet ﷺ , but not to pray therein, then the view of the Imams and majority of scholars is that it is neither a legislated nor a commanded act. The ahadeeth about visiting the grave of the Prophet ﷺ are all weak, according to the consensus of the scholars of ahadeeth, rather they are all fabricated and none of the reliable narrators of the Sunan related any of them, nor have any of the imams used any of them as evidence.” [ Majmoo’ al- Fatawa vol.27, pg 26.] source: islamkingdom
  11. Umrah Visa Requirement

    The very first thing you need to have with you for being eligible for the Umrah visa is to have an original application form. You need to read the form carefully and sign at the end. If the applicant is a non-Muslim then he or she would need to get a certificate from an Islamic center or a Masjid in order to prove that he or she is a Muslim. More Info: Umrah Visa
  12. It is proved that performing Umrah during Ramadan has got the most significance and virtues for those who perform and it has got a reward equivalent to Hajj. This means that performing Umrah and Hajj are two different things. Only performing Umrah in Ramadan benefits as much as performing Hajj but that does not discharge the duty of doing Hajj. Hajj for Allah has significance of its own. More Info: Umrah in Ramadan
  13. 1- Bathing and perfuming before assuming Ihram. 2- Wearing a wrapper (garment) and cover cloth which are white. 3- Saying the Talbiyah, starting when assuming Ihram and continuing until stoning Jamaratul aqabah. 4- The arrival circumambulation for those performing Ifrad or Hajj al-Qiraan. 5- Raml in the first three rounds during the arrival circumambulation. 6- Observing al-Idh’tiba’ during the circumambulation of arrival, and this is done by passing the cover cloth under the right armpit and placing the ends of the cloth on one’s left shoulder. 7- Spending the eve of Arafah at Mina. 8- Kissing the Black Stone. 9- Praying Maghrib and Isha’ prayers merged and advanced at Muzdalifah. 10- Staying at Al-Mash’ar Al-Haram (the revered landmark) in Muzdalifa from Fajr until sunrise, if possible, otherwise it is acceptable to stay at any place in Muzdalifah. Supererogatory acts of Hajj: Whoever omits a supererogatory act (sunnah) of Hajj has not committed any violation and his Hajj is still valid. The obligatory acts of Hajj Whoever omits an obligation must offer blood (sacrifice an animal) to make up for this omission. Source: Islamkingdom
  14. The fact that thousands of Muslims visit Makkah every year in Ramadam to perform Umrah is overwhelming. But, there are a couple of things that have to be considered, so that one can get the best out of this spiritual journey. Some individuals pay no heed to their families and go for Umrah in Ramadan. This is a genuine issue, on the grounds that the favored month of Ramadan is a period for individuals to show more concern for their families. The worst part is that in some cases parents neglect their children during this month. Before leaving for Umrah in Ramadan, make sure that your family and specially kids are taken care of. More Info: Umrah During Ramadan
  15. Hajj On Behalf Of Another

    A person who cannot perform Hajj or ‘Umrah as a result of old age, permanent illness, or some weakness in his body due to which he cannot make the journey, should have somebody perform Hajj and ‘Umrah on his behalf, and this is valid for him even if he regains his health after his representative had already entered into the state of Ihram for Hajj or ‘Umrah. On the authority of al-Fadl Ibn ‘Abbas t: A woman from al-Khath’am said, “O Messenger of Allah, the obligation from Allah to perform Hajj came upon my father while he is very old and incapable of riding a camel.” The Prophet ﷺ said: “Perform Hajj on his behalf.” [ Source: At-Tirmidhi.]There are numerous conditions stipulated for the person performing Hajj on behalf of another:1- He must have met the aforementioned conditions of Hajj.2- He must have first performed Hajj for himself. When a person performs Hajj on behalf of another, but has not performed it for himself, such a Hajj on behalf of another person is not valid; thus the Hajj he performed for the other person then becomes for him, and it is considered as a valid Hajj for him in Islam. Evidence for this is what was confirmed on the authority of Ibn ‘Abbas t: The Prophet ﷺ heard a man saying; “Labbayka on behalf of Shubruma,” the Prophet ﷺ asked: “Who is Shubruma?” He replied: “A brother or a relative of mine.” The Prophet then asked: “Have you performed Hajj for yourself?” He replied: “No.” So the Prophet ﷺ said: “Perform Hajj for yourself, then perform (Hajj) on behalf of Shubruma.” [ Source: Abu Dawud.] Source: islamkingdom
  16. Performing Umrah With Kids

    One of the biggest concerns for parents remains were handled their kids when they take them along for Umrah. It is easier to manage the entire Umrah trip if the kids are above 5 years of age, but if they are younger it becomes difficult to deal with them. Certain factors and precautionary measures are to be taken in order to take proper care of them and avoid any sort of inconvenience during Umrah. The very first consideration is to avoid taking more than 1 child (Under 5 years) with you on Umrah. Taking more children along is not a good idea as it may create a lot of trouble for you such as taking care and keeping an eye on them will become difficult, they might wander around and get misplaced. If you have your spouse along, if will become easier for you to handle the child. More Info at: http://blog.dawntravels.com/umrah-with-kids/

  19. Best Age To Perform Umrah

    Just the thought of performing Umrah energizes the devotee, but one should bear in mind that performing Umrah is an arduous task. Many people wonder ‘What is the best age to perform Umrah’, the age at which an individual can make the most out of these spiritual journeys. Many Ulema believe that it is better to perform Hajj and Umrah in young age. Youth? Juggling between responsibilities, overburdened with studies, carefree about finances, religious affairs… so not ‘their thing’, how could young age be the best age to perform Umrah?

  20. Some Useful Tips For Umrah

    If you were willing to perform Umrah last year, but you have missed your chance to perform Umrah, make the effects work for your tour this year. Every year, millions of people put their requests for Umrah visa, which are issued all the way through travel agents approved by the Ministry of Hajj only. The approved Umrah travel agents are well versed with the rules and regulations for Umrah travel and work according to the code of conduct stated by the Hajj Ministry. According to the Islamic point of view, before you start your journey towards the holy cities, such as Makkah and Madinah, you should clear all liabilities and clear of all debts. Islam also needs you to make a will before you go away from the religious trip. So you need to be familiar with a lot of things to do Umrah with greater commitment.
