1) Steps to be taken before commencing


the journey
(1.a) A woman is not allowed to travel without her
mehram
All the Muslim Scholars agreed unanimously that woman's traveling without
being accompanied by a Mahram (unmarriageable person) is forbidden
The Prophet said: "No woman who believes in Allah and the Last Day should
travel a distance of a day and night journey unless her Mahram is with her".
Ibn Abbas reported that the Prophet said: "The man must not be alone with
a woman except in the presence of her (Mahram). No woman should travel
except in the company of a (Mahram). A man said: O Messenger of Allah! I
have been enrolled for such and such expedition, and my wife left for Hajj.
He (Blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) said to him: "Go and perform
Hajj with your wife". (Al Bukhari & Muslim).

(1.b) Preparations before leaving for Umrah /Hajj


(1.1b) Make Ghusl (full body wash)
(1.2b) Trim your nails, and remove your pubic hair.
(1.3b) Whatever Salah is due at the time of travel, ensure it has been
prayed in full before setting off
(1.4b) When going out of your house/hotel, say:

Bismillahi, Tawakkaltu, a-lallahi, wa laa hawla wa laa quwatta illah billah

Compiled by : www.the-finalrevelation.blogspot.com

(In the name of Allaah, I place my trust in Allaah, and there is no might
nor power except with Allaah)

(1.5b) Read the Duaa of Travelling, before setting off in car/bus/plane




Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar. Subhaa-nalathee, Sakha-ra-lanaa ha-thaa wa maa kunaa, lahu muq-ri-nee-na wa innaa ilaa rabbinaa lamun-qa-le-boon
(Allaah is the greatest x3, How perfect He is, The One Who has place this
(transport) at our service, and we ourselves would not have been capable
of that, and to our Lord if our final destiny.)

Or you may say :

+
"Allah is the greatest, Allah is the greatest, Allah is the greatest, How
perfect He is, The One Who has placed this (transport) at our service, and

Compiled by : www.the-finalrevelation.blogspot.com

we ourselves would not have been capable of that, and to our Lord is our
final destiny. O Allah, we ask You for birr and taqwa in this journey of ours,
and we ask You for deeds which please You. O Allah, facilitate our journey
and let us cover its distance quickly. O Allah, You are The Companion on
the journey and The Successor over the family, O Allah, I take refuge with
You from the difficulties of travel, from having a change of hearts and
being in a bad predicament, and I take refuge in You from an ill fated
outcome with wealth and family. [upon returning the same supplication is
recited with the following addition :] (We return, repent, worship and
praise our Lord.)"

(1.6b) At a journey break, you may say:

Authoo bi-kalimaa tillaah-hitammaa ti-min sharri maa khalaq


(I take refuge in Allaahs perfect words from the evil that He has created.)
Because it is reported that the Prophet (s.a.w) said: Whoever stops to rest and
says, Aoodhu bi kalimaat Allaah il-taammah min sharri ma khalaq (I seek
refuge in the perfect words of Allaah from the evil of that which He has
created), nothing will harm him until he moves on from that place. [Ref:
Narrated by Muslim, al-Dhikr wal-Duaa, 2708]
Note: During your journey, avoid engaging in vain talks or sins, rather it is
suggested that you keep yourself in the remembrance of Allah (make dhikr,
make dua, read quran, read Islamic Books or etc). Remember this is the start
of your journey to the House of Allah, and you have been given an invitation
from Mlik Al-Mulk (Owner and King of all Kingdoms), so Praise and Glorify Him.
Do not disobey him. Be merciful (do not fight, argue, forgive and let go,
compromise , etc) to those on earth so the one above the heavens may
be merciful to you (wordings of the prophet reported in the books of
Sunan)

2) The concession of shortening and


joining the prayers during your journey
(2.1) Once you are a traveller [having left your area of residence] you may
combine the prayers as this is a concession from Allah and also the sunnah of
the messenger (peace and blessings be upon him)
Ibn Umar (may Allaah be pleased with him) said: I accompanied the Messenger
of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) and he did not do more
than two rakahs whilst travelling, and the same applies to Abu Bakr, Umar and
Uthmaan (may Allaah be pleased with them). Narrated by al-Bukhaari (1102).
Ya'la bin Umayyah said: I said to 'Umar ibn al-Khattaab "Verily Allaah has said
.. if you shorten your prayers, for fear the unbelievers may attack
you.(Quran, surah al-Nisa verses 4:101) and now the people feel secure."
'Umar said, "[Indeed] I wondered the same thing you are wondering, so I
mentioned it to the Prophet (peace be upon him) and he said '[It is] a charity
that Allaah has bestowed upon you so accept His charity.' " [Narrated by AlTirmidhi, hadith 3034 and Abu 'Isa at-Tirmidhi said this hadith is hasan sahih.)
Umayyah ibn Abdullah ibn Khaalid ibn Asid said to Ibn 'Umar, "How can you
shorten the prayer when Allaah the Almighty has said, .There is no blame on
you if you shorten your prayers, for fear .(Quran, surah al-Nisa verses
4:101)' ," so Ibn 'Umar said, "O son of my brother, verily the Messenger of Allah
(peace be upon him) came to us when we were misguided, so he taught us, and
among what he taught us was that Allaah the Almighty has ordered us to pray
two raka'a during travel." (Narrated by an-Nasai, hadith no. 457)
Note: The majority of scholars are of the view that the distance at which a
traveler is given the concession to join prayers and not fast is forty-eight miles.
Ibn Qudaamah said in al-Mughni: The view of Abu Abd-Allaah (i.e., Imam
Ahmad ibn Hanbal) is that it is not permissible to shorten the prayers for a
distance of less than sixteen farsakhs, and a farsakh is three miles, so the
distance is forty-eight miles. This was the estimation of Ibn Abbaas. He said:
From Usfaan to Makkah, or from al-Taaif to Makkah, or from Jeddah to

Compiled by : www.the-finalrevelation.blogspot.com

Makkah. Based on this, the distance at which it is permissible to shorten


prayers is the distance of two days travel aiming directly for that destination.
This is the view of Ibn Abbaas (r.a) and Ibn Umar (r.a), and the view of Imaam
Maalik (r.h), Imaam al-Layth (r.h) and Imaam al-ShaafaI (r.h). The equivalent
to this in kilometers is approximately 80 km. See: Tuhfat al-Muhtaaj (2/370)
and al-Mawsooah al-Fiqhiyyah (27/270). Some scholars do not define it by a
particular distance, rather they refer the matter to local customs such as Ibn
Taymiyyah (r.h) and Ibn al-Qayyim (r.h)

Can we shorten and Join both ?


It is reported from Ibn Abbaas (may Allaah be pleased with him) who said: The
Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) joined Zuhr
and Asr, and Maghrib and Isha, in Madeenah when there was no fear and no
rain. According to the hadeeth of Wakee he said: I said to Ibn Abbaas: Why did
he do that? He said: So that his ummah would not be subjected to hardship,
i.e., so that they would not face any difficulty. [narrated by Muslim in his
Saheeh, hadeeth (705)]
Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyah (may Allaah have mercy on him) said in Majmoo
al-Fataawa (22/293):
The reason for shortening prayers is travelling only, and it is not permissible
in situations other than travelling. As for joining prayers, the reason for it is
need and excuses, so if a person needs to he may join both shortened and fulllength prayers whilst travelling, and he may join prayers when it is raining and
so on, or because of sickness and the like, and for other reasons, because the
purpose behind it is to spare the ummah hardship (as it is. End quote.
You cannot shorten the fajr and maghrib prayer, but for the rest:

Dhur (2 Rakaats) & Asr (2 Rakaats) together (but separately by


concluding each prayer with a tasleem , i.e pray 2 rakah of Dhur, give
the tasleem i.e end the Dhur prayer and then pray 2 rakah of Asr )

Maghrib (3 Rakaats) & Ishaa (2 Rakaats) together


With regards to the sunnah/nawafil prayers (voluntary) prayed before and after
every obligatory unit, it is known that the prophet (s.a.w) never prayed any

Compiled by : www.the-finalrevelation.blogspot.com

sunnah/nafil (voluntary) prayers during travel except for Witr. So it is better to


follow the sunnah.
The majority of scholars (jumhoor ul-'ulmeaa') assert that salaat ul-witr (witr
prayer) is a sunnah mu'akkada (confirmed sunnah that the Prophet peace be upon
him, practiced consistently), and that it is not obligatory. This is based on the
hadith (saying) regarding the bedouin who once came to the Prophet asking about
Islam, the Prophet answered, "Five prayers within one day-and-night." The bedouin
asked, "Am I obliged to other than those?" The Prophet replied, "Unless you
volunteer of your own." (Saheeh Bukhaari & Muslim)
Some scholars have said that qiyaam ul-layl (prayer at the heart of night) and
salaat ul-witr are the best of the voluntary prayers (al-nawaafil). Therefore, one
should consistently practice them and not neglect them. The Prophet did not
neglect the prayers during night nor two rak'ah before al-fajr neither in residence
nor in travel (as related in al-sunnah al-sahihah)
It was narrated that Aasim ibn Umar ibn al-Khattaab said: I accompanied Ibn
Umar on the way to Makkah. He led us in praying two rakahs of Zuhr prayer, then
he left and we left with him until he came to where his luggage was. He sat down
and we sat with him, then he looked towards the place where we had prayed, and
he saw some people standing and he asked, What are these people doing? I said,
They are praying voluntary prayers. He said, If I wanted to pray (naafil or Sunnah
prayers) after the fard prayer I would have completed my prayer (i.e., not
shortened it). O son of my brother, I accompanied the Messenger of Allaah (peace
and blessings of Allaah be upon him) whilst travelling and he did not add anything
to these two rakahs until Allaah took him (in death); and I accompanied Abu Bakr
and he did not add anything to these two rakahs until Allaah took him (in death);
and I accompanied Umar and he did not add anything to these two rakahs until
Allaah took him (in death); and I accompanied Uthmaan and he did not add
anything to these two rakahs until Allaah took him (in death). And Allaah says
(interpretation of the meaning):
Indeed in the Messenger of Allaah (Muhammad) you have a good example to
follow [Quran, al-Ahzaab 33:21].
Ibn al-Qayyim (may Allaah have mercy on him) said: This demonstrates his
understanding, may Allaah be pleased with him. For Allaah has reduced the fourrakah prayers for the traveller by half. If it were prescribed to pray the two rakahs
(of Sunnah prayer) before and after, it would be more appropriate to pray the fard
prayer in full.[ Zaad al-Ma`aad, 1/316]
Another factor which indicates that it is prescribed to omit the regular Sunnah
prayers whilst travelling is the saheeh report from Ibn Umar (may Allaah be
Compiled by : www.the-finalrevelation.blogspot.com

pleased with him) who said: The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon
him) combined Maghrib and Isha prayer in Jam (i.e., Muzdalifah), reciting the
iqaamah for each of them, and he did not pray Sunnah in between or after either of
them. [Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 1673]

2a) The pillars of umrah


Umrah has three integral pillars without which it is invalid. These
pillars are:
(A) Ihraam: It is a ritual state of consecration in which one intends to
assume a state that temporarily prohibits certain matters, like wearing
fragrance, cutting hair or clipping nails, sexual relations, etc.
(B) Performing Tawaaf (circumambulation) around the Ka'bah.
(C) Performing Sai (Marching between Safa and Marwah).

3) Entering the state of Ihraam before


Meeqat (See 3a & 4a for details)
Entering into the state of Ihraam (i.e intention to enter the ritual of Umrah/Hajj) at
the place of the Miqaat (One of the several places specified by the Prophet , for the
people to assume Ihraam at, on their way to Makkah, when intending to perform
Hajj or 'Umrah)
it was narrated on the authority of Ibn Abbaas, May Allaah Be Pleased with him,
that he said: The Prophet sallallaahu `alayhi wa sallam ( may Allaah exalt his
mention ) fixed Thul Hulayfah as a Meeqaat for the people of Al-Madeenah; AlJuhfah for the people of Ash-Shaam; and Qarn Al-Manaazil for the people of Najd;
and Yalamlam for the people of Yemen. So, these Mawaaqeet are the Ihraam places
for all people living in the mentioned areas and for people coming from elsewhere
with the intention of performing Hajj and Umrah. People who live within these
places should assume Ihraam from where they live, and similarly the people of

Compiled by : www.the-finalrevelation.blogspot.com

Makkah can assume Ihraam from Makkah. [Narrated by al-Bukhaari (1524) and
Muslim (1181)]
It was also narrated on the authority of Aaishah, May Allaah Be Pleased with her,
that she said: The Prophet sallallaahu `alayhi wa sallam ( may Allaah exalt his
mention ) assigned Thaatu Irq as a Meeqaat for the people of Iraq. [Abu Daawood
and An-Nasaai]
(3.1) Before passing the Meeqat (the place where the Umrah starts, and
one enters the state of Ihram)
Men to get changed into their Ihram (2 pieces of white cloth), which are to
be worn preferably after one of the 5 daily prayers. You may wear the
Ihram before-hand from the airport as well. Women are to wear their
Ihraam ensuring the clothes are not too tight i.e should be decent
Some men uncover their right shoulders as soon as they assume Ihraam (the sacral
state). This is incorrect and should only be done during the Tawaaf
(circumambulation) of arrival for Umrah.
Some people think that Ihraam is initiated by wearing the clothes of Ihraam, when
in fact (this is not the case, but the case is that) it is initiated by the intention in
ones heart (see point no. 3.2 below). Therefore, wearing the clothes of Ihraam is
actually the physical preparation for Ihraam.
Some women mistakenly think that their Ihraam clothes should be of a certain
color, such as white or green, and this is incorrect. A woman can wear her regular
clothes, as long as they are within defined Islamic limits, and she must avoid
adornment or clothes that are tight or transparent. This kind of garment is
prohibited anyway at all times.
Men praying wearing the lower garment of Ihraam only or not covering both the
shoulders during prayer (such as after completing the 7 rounds of Kaaba they go to
pray near the station of Ibraaheem or Maqaame Ibraaheem having their shoulders
open/uncovered), which is wrong because the Prophet, sallallaahu `alayhi wa
sallam ( may Allaah exalt his mention ), said: Let not any of you pray with
a garment which does not cover his shoulders.[Al-Bukhaari, Muslim]

Compiled by : www.the-finalrevelation.blogspot.com

The prophet (s.a.w) said A woman in a state of Ihraam is neither allowed to use
Niqaab (cover her face) nor to wear gloves. [Al-Bukhaari]
Can we put on our Ihram at the airport or before entering the Meeqat so
that it is convenient for us or so as to avoid any hardship which we could
face while wearing out Ihraam just before the point of Meeqat?
Shaikh Ibn Baaz answered (a similar question stating): There is nothing
wrong with doing ghusl and putting on the ihraam garments and perfume in their
homes. But it is prescribed for them to enter ihraam only from the meeqaat.
Ihraam means the intention to start the rituals (of Hajj or Umrah). Along with
forming the intention it is prescribed to utter these words such as saying Labbayk
umratan (Here I am for Umrah) or Labbayk Hajjan (Here I am for Hajj, then he
should recite the Talbiyah as prescribed in shareeah, which is: Labbayka
Allaahumma labbayk, labbayka laa shareeka laka labbayk. Inna al-hamd walnimata laka wal-mulk, laa shareeka lak (Here I am, O Allaah, here I am. Here I
am, You have no partner, here I am. Verily all praise and blessings are Yours, and
all sovereignty, You have no partner). May Allaah help us all to do that which
pleases Him. [Fataawa Ibn Baaz, 17/51.]

(3.2) Then Make niyyah (intention) for Umrah

Labbaik Allaahumma bi-Umrah (Here I am O Allah making Umraah)


Note: If one fears that they are likely to be subjected to illness or anything else
that might obstruct their Umrah, one may add the following, by doing so if one

Compiled by : www.the-finalrevelation.blogspot.com

cannot complete the Umrah for whatever reason; then they simply cut their hair
and do not have to pay the ransom.

Allaahumma mahillee haithu habastanee


(Oh Allah I will come out of the state of Ihraam from the place You prevent
me from continuing).
(3.3) Make the Talbiyah (only men are to raise their voices ) and
continue making the Talbiyah until you reach the Kaba and start
your Tawaf (as reported in Saheeh Muslim and elsewhere)

Labbayka Allaahumma labbayk, labbayka laa shareeka laka labbayk. Inna


al-hamd wal-nimata laka wal-mulk, laa shareeka lak
(Here I am, O Allah, here I am. Here I am. You have no partner. Here I am.
Surely all praise, grace and dominion is yours, and you have no partner.)
The Talbiyah is prescribed in Umrah from the moment one enters ihraam until one
starts Tawaaf. When he starts Tawaaf he should stop reciting the Talbiyah. Also
collective Talbiyah (i.e chanting in groups, or a leader saying it first and people
following him) is a bidah (innovation).

4) Entering Masjid Al Haram (See 5a


for details)
(4.1) Enter with your right foot
(4.2) Recite the below duaa while entering the Masjid as it is a sunnah

Bismillahi, Allahumma salli alaa muhammadin wa sallim allaahumma


aftah lee abwaaba rahmatika
(In the name of Allaah! O Allaah! Exalt the mention of your Messenger. O
Allaah! Forgive my sins, and open the gates of Your mercy for me).

5) Tawaaf 7 rounds (See 5a for details)

Compiled by : www.the-finalrevelation.blogspot.com

(5.1) You need to be in Wudu and without wudu the tawaaf is not valid.
(5.2) ONLY Men are to leave their right shoulder bare ONLY during the
entire Tawaf, this is called Idtibaa, after the tawaf (7 rounds) is
complete men need to cover both shoulders.
(5.3) Start at the Black Stone and After saying Bismillah Allahu akbar either
o

Kiss it if you can, if not , touch it with your right hand and kiss your
right hand with which you touched the stone, if not then merely Face
the Black Stone and point at it with your right hand & nothing more
(i.e do not kiss your hand if you merely pointed at the black stone)
So in the third case, raise your right hand up, facing the palm of your
hand towards the hajr aswad And Say Bismillah, Allahu Akbar ( do
not kiss the hand).
Note: Upon arriving at the K'abah, stop reciting the Talbiyyah, then
approach the Black Stone, touch it with your right hand and kiss it. If
this isn't possible, you should face the Black Stone and point to it.
Dont push and shove, causing harm and being harmed by other
people. When touching the Stone, the following is said: "Bismil-laah,
Allaahu Akbar" (In the name of Allaah, Allaah is the Greatest) or
"Allaahu Akbar" (Allaah is the Greatest).
Black stone is the mark of starting the tawaaf and thus reaching it also
denotes the ending of that particular circuit. When beginning the
tawaaf we begin by kissing/pointing at the black stone and when we
reach the black stone again, this denotes we have completed our first
circuit. This process continues until 7 circuits. So for the remaining
circuits after the first one, every time you begin your circuit by passing
through hajr aswad (black stone) say Bismillah Allahu Akbar or simply
Allah Akbar but in the last circuit, i.e when you finish your 7th circuit
do not raise your hands and say bismillah allahu akbar at the black
stone. This saying bismillah Allahu akbar or Allahu Akbar is to show the
commencement of a circuit but when you finish your 7th one then no
need to say Allahu Akbar pointing towards the black stone. Simply
move out to pray at or anywhere in line with maqaam e ibraahim. Also

Compiled by : www.the-finalrevelation.blogspot.com

note that if in case your wudu breaks during the tawaaf, then go redo
your wudu and come back to continue from the circuit you left. I.e if
your wudu broke in the 3rd or 4th round then redo the wudu and start
from your 3rd or 4th or whatever round you left from. No need to repeat
the entire rounds all again. This is in accordance to strongest of
opinion of `ulema but some `ulema say you have to repeat the entire
tawaaf, starting from the 1st one. So the choice is yours, you can follow
whichever position you prefer.
(5.4) For men it is recommended to do Raml (i.e hasten/briskly walk)
during the first 3 rounds of Tawaf and then walk normally during
the other 4 rounds.
(5.5) Once you reach the Yamani corner, then Touch it with your right hand
(do not kiss it or point at it), What is prescribed is to touch this corner,
without kissing it or saying Allaahu akbar. If you cannot touch it then
you should not point to it or say Allahu akbar, because that was not
narrated from the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him)
and thus one should continue his tawaaf.
(5.6) From the Yamani corner to the Black Stone recite

Rabbanaa aatinaa fid-dunyaa hasanatan wa feel aakhirati hasanatan wa


qinaa adhaaban naar
(Our Lord, grant us good in this life and good in the hereafter and save us
from the punishment of the Hellfire. [Quran; 2:201])
Note: DO NOT PASS THROUGH THE HIJR ISMAIL the white enclosure
(see image above) during tawaaf, for it will null and void your tawaaf.
Hijr Ismaeel is a portion of the Kaabah itself and praying in it is like
praying inside the kaaba. So during your tawaaf pass around it and not
through (inside) it. Once you return back to the Black Stone, you have
completed 1 round, and you need to repeat the above steps 6 more
times to complete 7 rounds in total. And There is no specific duaas that

Compiled by : www.the-finalrevelation.blogspot.com

must be read during the Tawaaf or specific to any number of circuit


(tawaaf). Make as many and any good supplications in your language or
whatever duaa that you may like for you, your family, relatives, friends,
Muslims, etc. Do not indulge in group dhikr as many people do, because
this disturbs others and it is not from the sunnah either. Make sure you
follow the sunnah.
Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyah said:
It is mustahabb during tawaaf to remember Allaah and call upon Him in ways that
are prescribed in shareeah. If one recites Quraan there is nothing wrong with that.
There is no specific dhikr that has been narrated from the Prophet (peace and
blessings of Allaah be upon him), that he either enjoined, said or taught to others.
Rather (the pilgrim) may say any duaa that is prescribed in shareeah. What many
people say, that there is a specific duaa to be recited beneath the downspout of
the Kabah and so on has no basis. [Majmoo al-Fataawa, 26/122, 123]

6) After Completing Tawaf, proceed to


Maqaam-e Ibraaheem Prophet
Ibraaheems station (See 6a for details)
(6.1) Recite this verse (which means):

Wattakhidhoo min-maqaami ibraaheema musalla


(And take you (people) the Maqaam (place) of Ibraheem as a place of
Prayer. [Quran; 2:125])
(6.2) Then pray two short Rakahs, as close as conveniently possible, behind
Maqaam Ibraheem. If it is not possible then you can pray them
anywhere in the sacred mosque. It is preferred to recite during the

first Rak'ah the chapter "Al-Kafiroon" [109] and during the second one
the chapter of Al-lkhlaas [112].

7) Drink the Zam Zam water (See 7a for


details)
(7.1) Drinking ZamZam water is mustahhab (recommended) and not
obligatory. Secondly It is better for the person who drinks to
combine between two things, drinking his fill of Zam-Zam water and
drinking by three sips while breathing outside the container, and this
is possible.
Ibn 'Abbaas may Allaah be pleased with him said: "If you drink Zam-Zam
water drink your fill, turn towards the Qiblah, say "Bismillaah" (in the name
of Allaah) and breath three times and when you finish, you should say
"Alhamdu lillaah" (All perfect praise be to Allaah)." [Al-Haakim]
The Sunnah when drinking Zam-Zam or any other drink is to drink by three sips.
After drinking Zam zam, come back towards the black stone , if possible kiss it if
not touch it with your hand and kiss your hand if not then merely point at is
from far as you did during your tawaaf and say Allahu Akbar. And then move out
to Safa wal Marwa

Imaam Al-Bukhaari and Muslim may Allaah have mercy upon them reported that
the Prophet sallallaahu `alayhi wa sallam ( may Allaah exalt his mention ) used
to drink in three sips, breathing outside the container. Ibn Qataadah may Allaah
have mercy upon him also narrated that the Prophet sallallaahu `alayhi wa
sallam ( may Allaah exalt his mention ) forbade breathing into the container
when drinking

Compiled by : www.the-finalrevelation.blogspot.com

(7.2) Make duaa before drinking


When drinking Zamzam water, you may say duaa asking for the best of this
world and the Hereafter, because the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be
upon him) said: The water of Zamzam is for whatever it is drunk for. Narrated
by Ibn Maajah, 3062; classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Jaami 5502.
Imam Al-Nawawi said in al-Majmoo:
Al-Shaafai, his companions and others said: it is mustahabb to drink
Zamzam water, and to drink a great deal of it, and to drink one's fill. It is
mustahabb to drink it for whatever benefits one wants in this world and the
Hereafter. If a person wants to drink it for forgiveness or healing from
sickness etc, he should face the qiblah and mention the name of Allaah, then
say, O Allaah, I heard that Your Messenger (peace and blessings of Allaah
be upon him) said: The water of Zamzam is for whatever it is drunk for. O
Allaah, I am drinking it so that You will forgive me so forgive me, O Allaah,
or: I am drinking it to seek healing from sickness, so heal me, O Allaah.
And so on. It is mustahabb to drink in three draughts as in the case of any
other drink. And when he is done he should praise Allaah
(7.2) Drink Zam Zam water (3 breaths, exhaling your breathe outside
the glass)
(7.3) Pour water over your head
(7.4) Proceed to Saee

8) Saae- 7 circuits (See 8a for details)


(8.1) Upon approaching Mount Safaa while you are still ASCENDING it, the
following ayaat (verse) is recited . If you forgot no problem you can also read
this verse while you are standing on safa facing the Qiblah.

Compiled by : www.the-finalrevelation.blogspot.com




(Verily, As-Safaa and Al-Marwah are from the symbols of Allaah. 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, Allaah is the All-Recognizer, All-Knower. [Quran;
2:158] If you dont remember the verse say the first bit until Verily...
from the symbols of allah.. or simply look up, it is written on the
walls/coloumns above the safa and marwa in big letters, look up and read
the whole verse no issues)
And then say :

Abdau bimaa badaAllahu bihi


(I begin with what Allaah began with.)
(8.2) Then ascend upon Mount Safaa, once you are on it standing, then
face the Qiblah, raise your hands and recite 3 times:


Allaahu akbar allaahu akbar allaahu akbar.
(Allaah is the Greatest, Allaah is the Greatest, Allaah is the Greatest.)
And then recite the following du`a (once) Or you may recite it thrice as
well . the number of recitation is not restricted . :

(There is nothing worthy of worship except Allah, Alone. He has no
partner, To Him belongs the kingdom, & all praise belongs to Him, & He
has power above all things, There is nothing worthy of worship except
Allah, He fulfilled His promise, Granted victory to His servant, And alone He
defeated the allied army.)
(8.3) Then you Praise Allah, Send Salaam upon Muhammad (s.a.w) and
then make as much personal Duas as you like. Pray for anything from
the goodness of this life and the next, pray for both yourself and others.
It is proven that the prophet sallalahu `alayhi wa sallam used to make
long du`as while standing on safa and marwa during `umrah. So after
the above du`a you can make whatever and as much du`a as you like in
whatever language you prefer.
Note: these du`a and adhkar are sunnah. If you forget no issues.

Compiled by : www.the-finalrevelation.blogspot.com

(8.4) Then after completing your adhkaar and du`a descend from Mount
Safaa and go walking towards Mount Marwah at normal pace.
[Raising hands while walking in tawaaf AND sai (i.e safa and
marwa circuits) for making du`a is not a sunnah but if you wish
you can. However, it is better to follow the sunnah. You can make
dua with your hands down as well so no issues here as well. ]
(8.5) Only for Men : When you reach the green sign, men are to hasten
their walk for a while, but do not run. Then return to your normal
phase of walk at the next green sign. (See the below fig)
(8.6) Upon reaching Mount Marwah do not recite the verse of surah baqrah
shown above nor do you have to say abdau bima . You only have to
repeat the same procedure mentioned above under points 8.2 and 8.3
respectively. When done then this completes your 1circuit.

Compiled by : www.the-finalrevelation.blogspot.com

(8.7) Continue and complete six more rounds/circuits (i.e to achieve in total 7
circuits), ending the last one on Mount Marwah [Safa to marwa is ONE.
Marwa to safa again is Two. Then Safa to marwa again is three
.like this the last one the 7th one ends at Marwah. Remember
this. Dont get confused and end up doing 14 rounds ]

Enjoy the process. Youve come all this way, open your heart in
glorification and Dua to Allah in whatever language you prefer!
Invoke Allah with the best of supplications and invoke the Lord of the
Universe like a beggar for he is listening to you and seeing you every
blink of your eye

Compiled by : www.the-finalrevelation.blogspot.com

Note: There are no particular supplications to be recited between


Safaa and Marwah. It is up to the worshipper to praise Allah or
supplicate Him in his own words, or he may recite portions of the
Quran.

9) After Completing Saae, Trim/shave


the hair
(9.1) It is recommended for men to shave all their hair because the
prophet (peace be upon him) invoked Allah thrice for them, but they can
also trim it all the way round covering the entire head (and not from
here and there)
Narrated Abu Huraira: Allahs Apostle said, O Allah! Forgive those who get their
heads shaved. The people asked. Also those who get their hair cut short? The
Prophet said, O Allah! Forgive those who have their heads shaved. The people
said, Also those who get their hair cut short? The Prophet (invoked Allah for
those who have their heads shaved and) at the third time said, also (forgive)
those who get their hair cut short. [Saheeh Bukhaari, Vol. 2, Book 26, Hadith
786]
(9.2) Women are to shorten their hair by a fingertip (see the image
below)

Now all Ihraam rules are lifted,and your Umrah is completed. May Allah
accept your Umrah, Ameen!!
As mentioned in the beginning of this document, we have enlisted the
umrah procedure step by step in brief above, and what shall follow now is
the detail for every step, enlisting additional information, warnings, virtues
and etc.

3a) Meeqat & its details


At the meeqaat when entering ihraam It is Sunnah for the Muslim to recite tasbeeh (saying
Subhaan-Allaah (glory be to Allaah)), tahleel (saying Laa ilaaha ill-Allaah (there is no god
but Allaah)) and takbeer (saying Allaahu akbar (Allaah is Most Great)) before entering
ihraam for Umrah or Hajj.
It was narrated that Anas (may Allaah be pleased with him) said: The Messenger of Allaah
(peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) prayed Zuhr with four rakahs when we were
with him in Madeenah, and he prayed Asr in Dhul-Hulayfah with two rakahs, then he
stayed there overnight. When morning came he rode until he reached al-Bayda, then he
praised, glorified and magnified Allaah. Then he recited Talbiyah with the intention of
performing Hajj and Umrah and the people did likewise. [Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 1551.]
Al-Haafiz ibn Hajar said:
This ruling that it is mustahabb to recite tasbeeh and the other (adhkaar) mentioned
before ihraam is something that not many people do even though it is proven in the
Sunnah. [Fath al-Baari, 3/412]

4a) Ihraam & its details


Ihraam means having the intention of starting the rituals of Hajj or Umrah.
When the pilgrim wants to enter ihraam, he should change his clothes and do ghusl like the
ghusl done to cleanse oneself of janaabah (impurity following sexual activity). Then he
should apply whatever perfume is available, musk or whatever, to his head and beard. It
does not matter if traces of that perfume remain after he enters ihraam, because of the
hadeeth narrated in al-Saheehayn from Aaishah (may Allaah be pleased with her) who
said: When the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) wanted to enter
ihraam, he would perfume himself with the best perfume he could find, then I would see
shining traces of that musk on his head and beard after that. Narrated by al-Bukhaari,
5923; Muslim, 1190.

Compiled by : www.the-finalrevelation.blogspot.com

Doing ghusl when entering ihraam is Sunnah for both men and women, even women who
are bleeding following childbirth or menstruating, because the Prophet (peace and blessings
of Allaah be upon him) commanded Asma bint Umays when she was bleeding following
childbirth to do ghusl when she entered ihraam, and to bandage her private parts and enter
ihraam. Narrated by Muslim, 1209. Then after doing ghusl and putting on perfume, the
pilgrim should put on the ihraam garments and apart from women who are bleeding
following childbirth or menstruating pray the obligatory prayer if that is at the time of an
obligatory prayer, (otherwise they may pray two rakahs with the intention of the Sunnah
prayer of wudoo). When the pilgrim has finished praying he should face the qiblah and
enter ihraam. He may delay ihraam until he has boarded his means of transportation, and is
ready to move off, but he should enter ihraam before he leaves the meeqaat for Makkah.
Then he should say, Labbayk Allaahumma bi Umrah (Here I am, O Allaah, for Umrah).
Then he should recite the Talbiyah as the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon
him) did: Labbayka Allaahumma labbayk, labbayka laa shareeka laka labbayk. Inna alhamd wal-nimata laka wal-mulk, laa shareeka lak (Here I am, O Allaah, here I am. Here I
am, You have no partner, here I am. Verily all praise and blessings are Yours, and all
sovereignty, You have no partner).
The Talbiyah of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) also included the
words, Labbayka ilaah al-haqq (Here I am, O God of Truth).
Ibn Umar used to add to the Talbiyah the words, Labbaayk wa sadayka, wal-khayr bi
yadayka, wal-raghba ilayka wal-aml (Here I am and blessed by You, and all good is in
Your hands, and desire and action are directed towards You).
Men should raise their voices when saying that, because the Prophet (peace and blessings
of Allaah be upon him) said: Jibreel came to me and told me to tell my companions and
those who are with me to raise their voices when reciting the Talbiyah. Classed as saheeh
by al-Albaani in Saheeh Abi Dawood, 1599. And he (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon
him) said: The best of Hajj is that in which voices are raised in the Talbiyah and the blood
of the sacrificial animal flows. Classed as hasan by al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Jaami, 1112.
A woman should recite in such a manner that those who are beside her can hear it, unless
there is a man beside her who is not one of her mahrams, in which case she should recite it
silently.
If the person who is entering ihraam fears some obstacle that may prevent him from
completing his pilgrimage (such as sickness, an enemy, being stopped from proceeding any
further, etc), then he should stipulate a condition when entering ihraam by saying, If I am
prevented then my exiting ihraam is where I am prevented i.e., if something prevents me
from completing my pilgrimage such as sickness or delay etc, then I will exit my ihraam. The
Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) commanded Dubaaah bint al-Zubayr,
when she wanted to enter ihraam but she was sick, to stipulate such a condition, and he
said, Your condition is valid with your Lord. Narrated by al-Bukhaari (5089), Muslim (1207)
and An-NasaI (2766).

Compiled by : www.the-finalrevelation.blogspot.com

If he stipulates this condition and something happens to prevent him from completing his
pilgrimage, then he can exit his ihraam and does not have to do anything (i.e., offer a
sacrifice in compensation).
But the one who does not fear that some obstacle may prevent him from completing his
pilgrimage does not have to stipulate any conditions, because the Prophet (peace and
blessings of Allaah be upon him) did not stipulate conditions nor did he command everyone
to do so. Rather he told Dubaaah bint al-Zubayr to do that because she was sick.
The muhrim (person who has entered ihraam) should recite the Talbiyah a great deal,
especially when circumstances and times change, such as when going up to a high place or
going down to a low place, or when night or day begin. After that he should ask Allaah for
His good pleasure and for Paradise, and seek refuge in His Mercy from the Fire.
The Talbiyah is prescribed in Umrah from the moment one enters ihraam until one starts
Tawaaf. When he starts Tawaaf he should stop reciting the Talbiyah.

5a) Entering Masjid al Haram , Tawaaf &


its details
Then when he enters al-Masjid al-Haraam he should do so with his right foot first,
and say, Bismillaah wal-salaatu wal-salaam ala Rasool-Allaah. Allaahumma ighfir
li dhunoobi waftah li abwaab rahmatika. Aoodhu Billaah il-Azeem wa bi wajhih ilkareem wa bi sultaanih il-qadeem min al-Shaytaan il-rajeem (In the name of
Allaah, and blessings and peace be upon the Messenger of Allaah. O Allaah, forgive
me my sins and open to me the gates of Your mercy. I seek refuge with Allaah the
Almighty and in His noble Countenance and His eternal power from the accursed
Satan). Also it is proven from some sahaaba that when they first looked at the
ka`bah or entered the haram looking at the ka`bah they recited : Allahumma
Antas salaam wa minkas salaam fahayyina rabbana bil-Islaam
Al-Bukhaari (1613) narrated from Ibn Abbaas (may Allaah be pleased with him)
that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) circumambulated the
House, and every time he came to the corner (i.e., the Black Stone), he pointed to
it with something he had in his hand (stick, etc) and said takbeer.
Then he should go to the Black Stone in order to start tawaaf. He should touch the
Stone with his right hand and kiss it (the stone); If he cannot touch it with his hand

Compiled by : www.the-finalrevelation.blogspot.com

then he should face the Stone and point to it with his hand and say (for the first
time) Bismillah Allaahu akbar, but he should not kiss his hand. And for the
remaining circuits he can say Bismillah Allahu Akbar or Allahu Akbar only both are
fine.
There is a great deal of virtue in touching the Black Stone, because the Prophet
(peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: Allaah will raise up the Black
Stone on the Day of Resurrection and it will have two eyes with which it will see
and a tongue with which it will speak, and it will bear witness for those who touched
it in sincerity. Classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Targheeb walTarheeb, 1144.
It is better not to crowd around and cause annoyance to people or be annoyed by
them, because of the hadeeth in which the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah
be upon him) said to Umar: O Umar, you are a strong man, do not crowd around
the Stone and disturb the weak. If you find space, then touch it, otherwise just face
it and say Allaahu akbar. Narrated by Ahmad, 191; classed as qawiy by al-Albaani
in Risaalat Manaasik al-Hajj wal-Umrah, p. 21.
Then he should move towards the right, with the Kabah on his left, and when he
reaches the Yemeni Corner (al-Rukn al-Yamaani, which is the third corner after the
Black Stone) he should touch it, without kissing his hand or saying Allaahu akbar.
If he cannot touch it then he should move on, and not crowd around it and he
should not point towards it or say allahu akbar (see Shaikh Ibn Uthaymeens AlSharh al-Mumti, 7/283 for details).
Between the Yemeni Corner and the Black Stone he should say, Rabbanaa aatina
fil-dunya hasanah wa fil-aakhirah hasanah wa qinna adhaab al-Naar (Our Lord!
Give us in this world that which is good and in the Hereafter that which is good, and
save us from the torment of the Fire). Narrated by Abu Dawood 1892 and classed
as hasan by al-Albaani in Saheeh Abi Dawood, 1666.
Every time he passes the Black Stone he should kiss it or face it and say Allaahu
akbar, and in the rest of his tawaaf he should recite whatever he likes of dhikr,
duaa and Quraan, because tawaaf around the Kabah has been established for the
remembrance of Allaah.

In Tawaaf men should do two things:


1 Uncovering the right shoulder (idtibaa) from the beginning of tawaaf until the
end. This is done by placing the middle of the rida (upper garment) beneath the
right armpit and the ends of the rida over the left shoulder. When the pilgrim
finishes tawaaf, he should put his rida back as it was before tawaaf, because the
time for wearing it with one shoulder uncovered is only in tawaaf. And prayer
(salah) requires that your shoulders be covered.

Compiled by : www.the-finalrevelation.blogspot.com

2 Raml in the first three circuits only. Raml means walking quickly with short
steps. In the last four circuits there is no raml, rather the pilgrim should walk
normally.

6a) Maqaam e Ibraaheem the station of


Ibraaheem & Its details
When the pilgrim has completed seven circuits of tawaaf, he should cover his right shoulder
and then go to the Station of Ibraaheem (Maqaam Ibraaheem) and recite the words
(interpretation of the meaning):
And take you (people) the Maqaam (place) of Ibraaheem (Abraham) [or the stone on
which Ibraaheem (Abraham) stood while he was building the Kabah] as a place of prayer
(for some of your prayers, e.g. two Rakat after the Tawaaf of the Kabah at Makkah),[alBaqarah 2:125]
Then he should pray two rakahs behind the Station; in the first rakah after reciting alFaatihah he should recite Yaa ayyahal-kaafiroon (Soorat al-Kaafiroon 109) and in the
second Qul Huwa Allaahu ahad (Soorat al-Ikhlaas 112). Since there are a lot of people
doing tawaf so praying at the station will cause inconvenience so one can pray a little far
away where praying mats are there. Then when he has finished this prayer he should go to
the Black Stone and touch it if he can. If in case he cannot touch then merely raise your
hands pointing towards the black stone and say Allahu Akbar and then walk away to Mount
safa.

7a) Drinking Zam Zam & its details


It is confirmed that it is desirable to drink Zam Zam water after praying two Rakas when
finishing the circumambulation around the Kabah . These 2 rak`ah are the ones which are
prayed near Maqaame Ibraahem (or anywhere in the masjid) and before Sa'y. The
evidence is what Imaam Ahmad may Allaah have mercy upon him reported, that Jaabir Ibn
Abdullaah may Allaah be pleased with him narrated that the Prophet sallallaahu `alayhi wa
sallam ( may Allaah exalt his mention ) made circumambulation around the Kabah,
quickening his steps in the first three rounds, and after completing the Tawaf, he sallallaahu
`alayhi wa sallam ( may Allaah exalt his mention ) prayed two Rakas (near Maqaame
Ibraaheem). Then he went to Zam Zam well and drank from it, and poured some water over
his head. Then he returned again to the black stone and touched it, and then went to
Safaa,..

8a) Saae & its details


Note: Being in a state of Wudu is not an obligation during saai, rather it is mustahab or
highly recommended as being in wudu has many virtues.
Taken from Fiqh-us-Sunnah Fiqh 5.88b
Topic: Purification for Sa'i
The Prophet (saws) said to Aishah (.a.) when she was in the state of menstruation: "You
may perform all rites (of pilgrimage ) as other pilgrims do, except performing the tawaaf
around the Kabah which you may do after you are clean and no longer menstruating."
(Related by Muslim)
Hadrat Aishah (r.a.) and Hadrat Umm Salamah (r.a.) said, "(While performing the
pilgrimage) A woman who performs the tawaaf, offers a two rakah prayer (by the Station of
Ibrahim), and then finds that her menstruation has started, may perform Sa'I between Safa
and Marwah.'' (Reported by Sa'id bin Mansur)
In light of the above quoted guidance, the absolute majority of the scholars and jurists of
Fiqh or Islamic Jurisprudence are of the opinion that although being in the state of purity
and wudu is absolutely obligatory for performing the tawaaf of the Kaaba; being in the
state of wudu is preferred but not an obligatory condition for doing the sai or walk
between the Safa and Marwah hillocks.
The next stage is to go to Safaa. Upon approaching the foot of Safaa, the following verse is
recited (which means):
Verily, As-Safaa and Al-Marwah are from the symbols of Allaah. 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, Allaah is the All-Recognizer, AllKnower. [Quran; Al Baqarah : 2:158]:
And he should say: Abdau bima Badallahu Bihi (I start with that with which Allaah
started).
Then he should climb al-Safa until he can see the Kabah, then he should face it and raise
his hands and praise Allaah, and make duaa as he wishes. The sunnah of the Prophet
(peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) is that he used to say: (Allahu Akbar thrice and
then) Laa ilaaha ill-Allaah wahdahu laa shareeka lah, lahul-mulk, wa lahul-hamd, wa huwa
ala kulli shayin qadeer. Laa ilaaha ill-Allaah wahdah, anjaza wadah, wa nasara abdah, wa
hazamaa al-ahzaaba wahdah (There is no god but Allaah alone, with no partner or
associate; His is the Dominion, all praise is due to Him, and He is able to do all things.
There is no god but Allaah alone; he fulfilled His promise, granted victory to His slave, and
defeated the confederates alone). [Narrated by Muslim, 1218]

Compiled by : www.the-finalrevelation.blogspot.com

So after facing the kabah (qiblah) raise your hands, say allahu akbar three times and then
the above du`a three times or one times as you wish. Then proceed towards Marwaa,
supplicating whatever you like in between.
When he reaches the green marker he should walk as quickly or fastly as he can without
disturbing anyone, because it was proven that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah
be upon him) did saai between al-Safa and al-Marwah, and he said, The river bed is not
crossed except with vigour. Narrated by Ibn Maajah and classed as saheeh by al-Albaani
in Saheeh Ibn Maajah, 2419. The river bed [it was a dried river bed in the time of the
Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him)] is the area between the two green
markers that stand there now.
When he reaches the second green marker, he should walk normally until he reaches alMarwah. He should climb up it and turn to face the qiblah, and raise his hands and say what
he said at al-Safa.i.e Allahu akbar three times then the du`a : Laa ilaaha ill-Allaah wahdahu
laa shareeka lah, lahul-. Cont. either once or thrice his wish.
Jaabir (may Allaah be pleased with him) said: Then he (s.a.w) came down towards alMarwah and when his feet reached the bottom of the valley he ran until the ground started
to rise, then he walked until he came to al-Marwah, and he did at al-Marwah as he had
done at al-Safa. Narrated by Muslim, 1218.
Then he should come down from al-Marwah and head for al-Safa, walking in the place of
walking and running in the place of running. When he reaches al-Safa he should do what he
did the first time, and the same when he goes back to al-Marwah, until he has completed
seven circuits; going from al-Safa to al-Marwah is one circuit, and coming back from alMarwah to al-Safa is another circuit. During his saai he can say whatever he likes of dhikr
and duaa, and recite Quraan.
Reminder: The verse
Verily, As-Safa and Al-Marwah (two mountains in Makkah) are of the Symbols of
Allaah. [al-Baqarah 2:158] and the du`a abdau bima badallahu bihi
should be recited by the pilgrim who wants to perform saai when he approaches al-Safa at
the beginning of saai only (i.e when he approaches safa for the first time). It is not
mustahabb to repeat it every time he approaches al-Safa and al-Marwah, as some people
do.

10) MISTAKES THAT A MUHRIM


SHOULD AVOID
The things which are forbidden in ihraam are things which a person
must refrain from doing because of being in ihram [Note: Ihram is the
state you enter at meeqat and not merely the wearing of white clothes at
your airport or bus hours before meqaat]. They are:
1 Shaving or trimming the hair of the head, because Allaah says
(interpretation of the meaning):
and do not shave your heads until the Hady [sacrificial animal] reaches the place
of sacrifice[al-Baqarah 2:196]
The scholars added to the prohibition on shaving the head the prohibition on
shaving any hair on the body, and on trimming or cutting the nails.
As such, pilgrims are forbidden to intentionally remove any hair while in the state of
Ihraam, and they are required to pay Fidyah (ransom) should they do so. If the hair
fell by itself, the pilgrims are not blamed for that. It is permissible to remove the
hair if the pilgrim is physically harmed by keeping it un-removed, and in this case a
ransom is obligatory, as Allaah The Almighty Says (what means): { And whoever
among you is ill or has an ailment of the head [making shaving necessary must
offer] a ransom of fasting [three days] or charity or sacrifice.} [Quran 2:196]
Clipping Nails: Clipping nails is forbidden by analogy with the prohibition of hair
removal. In this regard, Ibn Qudaamah said: There is consensus among scholars
that pilgrims who are in the state of Ihraam are forbidden to clip their nails. The
prohibition is applicable to fingernails and toenails alike. However, if a nail broke
and caused harm, the pilgrim is permitted to clip the annoying part and is not
required to pay a ransom for it.
Also quarreling, fighting, abusing, cursing within the masjid al haram or during
ihram or umrah is prohibited strictly.
2 Using perfume after entering ihraam, whether on ones clothes or body, or
in one's food or when washing the deceased muhrim or in any way whatsoever.
Using perfume is forbidden in ihraam (i.e after entering the ritual or state of ihraam
from the point of meeqat) because the Prophet said about a pilgrim who is in the
Compiled by : www.the-finalrevelation.blogspot.com

state of Ihraam: He must not wear a garment to which either saffron or wars was
applied. Likewise, the Prophet said about the pilgrim who died because of a kick
from his riding camel while he was in the state of Ihraam: Do not apply perfume to
him nor cover his head. [Al-Bukhaari] What is meant here is applying perfume
after entering the state of Ihraam, but traces of perfume which a pilgrim has
applied before he entered Ihraam and they remained on his body are not forbidden,
for Aaishah was reported to have said: I would see the glistening of musk (in the
parting of the head) of the Messenger of Allaah while he was in the state of
Ihraam. [Al-Bukhaari and Muslim].
3 Intercourse, because Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):
So whosoever intends to perform Hajj therein (by assuming Ihraam), then he
should not have sexual relations (with his wife), nor commit sin, nor dispute
unjustly during the Hajj[al-Baqarah 2:197]
4 Touching ones wife with desire, because this comes under the general
meaning of the phrase he should not have sexual relations (with his wife), and
because it is not permissible for the muhrim (person in ihraam) to get married or to
propose marriage so it is more likely that it is not permissible for him to touch his
wife with desire.
5 Killing game (hunting), because Allaah says (interpretation of the
meaning:
O you who believe! Kill not the game while you are in a state of Ihraam [for Hajj
or Umrah (pilgrimage)] [al-Maa'idah 5:95]
As for cutting down the trees, that is not haraam for the muhrim, except for those
trees within the amyaal, i.e., the boundaries of the sanctuary, cutting which is
forbidden whether one is in ihraam or not. Hence it is permissible to cut down trees
, harm plants or animals in Arafaah even if one is in ihraam, because the
prohibition on cutting down trees is connected to the Haram (sanctuary), and not
ihraam.
6 A prohibition which applies exclusively to men is wearing shirts,
hooded robes, trousers, turbans and leather slippers, because the Prophet
(peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) was asked about what the muhrim
should wear. He said: He should not wear a shirt, hooded robe (burnous),
trousers, a turban or leather slippers. But he (peace and blessings of Allaah be
upon him) made an exception for one who cannot find an izaar (lower garment or

Compiled by : www.the-finalrevelation.blogspot.com

waist wrapper), who may wear trousers, and one who cannot find sandals, who
may wear leather slippers. This hadeeth is stated below under point no. 7
These five things are described by the scholars as wearing sewn garments, so the
common folk imagine that wearing sewn garments means wearing clothes that
have stitching in them, but that is not the case. What the scholars meant by that is
wearing clothes that is tailored to fit the body or part of it, such as shirts and
trousers. This is what they meant. Hence if a person wears a rida (upper garment)
or izaar (lower garment) with patches on it, that is o.k., but if he wears a woven
shirt with no stitching, that is haraam.
Another prohibition specific to men is to wear a cap or covering the head
with a fitting object
the Prophet said about the man who was knocked down by his she-camel at
Arafah: Wash him with water and Sidr and shroud him in his two garments and do
not cover his head. [Al-Bukhaari and Muslim]
Hence, men who are in the state of Ihraam are not permitted to cover their head
with a fitting object such as caps, scarves, turbans, and the like. However, if the
cover is not in contact with the head, such as an umbrella or the shade of a tree,
the roof of a tent or a car, then there is no harm, for Umm Al-Husayn was reported
to have said: I performed Hajj with the Messenger of Allaah during the farewell
Pilgrimage and saw Usaamah and Bilaal, one of them had caught hold of the
noseband of the she-camel of the Prophet while the other was raising his garment
(over his head) protecting him from the heat until he hurled the pebbles of Jamrat
Al-Aqabah. [Muslim]
7 One of the prohibitions of ihraam that applies only to women is
wearing niqaab which refers to a veil that covers the face and leaves the eyes
uncovered, because the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him)
forbade that. A similar prohibition applies to the hands. The prophet (s.a.w) said A
woman in a state of Ihraam is neither allowed to use Niqaab (cover her face) nor to
wear gloves. [Al-Bukhaari]
It was narrated from Ibn Umar that a man stood up and said:O Messenger of
Allah! What garments do you command us to wear in Ihram? The Messenger of
Allah said; Do not wear shirts, or pants, or Khuffs unless a man does not have any
sandals, in which case he may wear Khuffs that come lower than the ankles. And do
not wear any garment that has been touched by (dyed with) saffron or Wars. And a
woman in Ihram should not cover her face or wear gloves.

It is prescribed for her to leave her face uncovered except when a non-mahram
man passes by her, when she must cover her face and it does not matter if this
cover touches her face because this is what Aisha (r.a) used to do as
Narrated Aisha, Ummul Muminin: riders would pass us when we accompanied the
Apostle of Allah (peace and blessings be upon him) while we were in the sacred
state (wearing ihram). When they came by us, one of us would let down her outer
garment from her head over her face, and when they had passed on, we would
uncover our faces. [Sunan Abu Dawood, Book #10, Hadith #1829]

With regard to the one who does any of these forbidden things out of
forgetfulness or ignorance or because he is forced to do so, he does not
have to offer any expiation, because Allaah and the prophet (s.a.w) say:
And there is no sin on you concerning that in which you made a mistake except in
regard to what your hearts deliberately intend [al-Ahzaab 33:5]
the Prophet said: My Ummah is absolved of (the consequences of) anything they
do mistakenly, forgetfully, or under coercion (i.e compulsion or helplessness). [Ibn
Maajah]
On the authority of Ibn Abbas (r.a) it is reported that when the verse Allah
burdens not a soul beyond its capacity. It gets every good that it earns and it
suffers every ill that it earns. Our Lord, call us not to account if we forget or make a
mistake (was revealed). He the (Lord) said: I indeed did it (i.e granted/accepted
you this supplication). Our Lord! do not lay on us a burden as Thou didst lay on
those before us. He (our Lord) said: I indeed did it (i.e granted/accepted this
supplication). And pardon us, have mercy on us. Thou art our Protector" (ii. 286).
He said: I indeed did it [Saheeh Muslim Book 1, Hadeeth 229]

11) THE DIRE WARNING AND


CONSEQUENCE OF PRACTISING AN
INNOVATION (small or big)
Indeed Allah does not accept the repentance of an innovator until he stops the
innovation [Related by at-Tabraanee in al-Awsat (4360), and authenticated by
Shaikh Albaanee in As-Saheeha (1620)]
And he (sallallaahu alaihi wasallam) also said: " and every innovation is
misguidance and all misguidance is in the Hellfire."
[Reported by an-Nasaa'ee (1/224) from Jaabir bin Abdullaah and it is saheeh as
declared by Shaikh ul-Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah in Majmoo' ul-Fataawaa (3/58)]
Al-'Irbaad ibn Saariyah reports that the Prophet said, ".... I have left you upon clear
guidance. Its night is like its day. No one deviates from it after me except that he is
destroyed."
[Reported by Ahmad, Ibn Maajah (no. 43) and al-Haakim. It is declared saheeh by
Shaikh al-Albaanee in as-Saheehah (no. 937).]
Abdullah Ibn Abbaas (r.a) also said, "When "Bid'ah (innovation)" is created then the
Sunnah dies and this continues until that "Bid'ah" is living and the Sunnah is dead."
Abdullah Ibn Umar (r.a) (d. 84H) said:
" " : - - .
"Every innovation is misguidance, even if the people see it as something good."

12) Some common Mistakes (or


innovations) which scores of people
indulge in
Mistake #1 : While entering Masjid Al Haram kissing and
touching and rubbing on tiles to gain blessing is an innovation
and nowhere to be found in shariah.
Mistake #2 :Kissing the black stone from far away , rubbing
it on the body and stopping in mid-tawaaf to do so:
Kissing the black stone is a beautiful Sunnah, and an honor indeed for the one who
is able to do so. However, due to the immense crowds, a very large number of
people are not able to reach it. So a large number of people try to kiss it from far
away. When they are line with the black stone, they stop dead in their tracks in
mid-tawaaf, stand facing the black stone, put up both hands on the side of their
head and kiss the black stone in midair, as if the black stone is right in front of
them. Or they throw flying kisses at the black stone from far away, by kissing
their hands and then throwing these kisses in the direction of the black stone.
Besides being wrong, stopping the flow of tawaf causes disruption and unnecessary
crowding in that area, and a LOT of inconvenience to fellow Haajis.
Distance kissing is not from the Sunnah of course. All the Prophet (Sal Allaahu
Alaiyhi wa sallam) did while doing tawaaf, was to kiss the black stone if he easily
could do so, or touch it with his hand and kiss his hand. BUT, when there was a
crowd, all he did was point to it from far away and say Allaahu Akbar. That's it.
It was narrated that Abu Tufayl (may Allh be pleased with him) said: I saw the
Messenger of Allh (peace and blessings of Allh be upon him) performing Tawaaf
around the House, touching the corner [where the Stone is] with a crooked staff
which he had with him, then kissing the staff. [Muslim, 1275]
It was narrated that Ibn Abbaas said: The Messenger of Allh (peace and blessings
ofAllh be upon him) performed Tawaaf on his camel, and every time he came to
the corner [where the Stone is] he would point to it and say Allaahu akbar. [alBukhri, 1613]

Compiled by : www.the-finalrevelation.blogspot.com

And that's what we need to do. If you are far away from the black stone, all you do
is to point to it with your right hand, say Allh Akbar and move on. No facing the
Ka'bah, no distance kissing, no stopping dead in your tracks. Keep moving and
don't disrupt the flow of the tawaaf.

Mistake #3. Shouting out duas in unison


Some people shout at the top of their voices, in unison, while making dua during
tawaaf. They follow an imaam or a leader who says out different duas aloud, and
then the followers all repeat after him in unison. This causes a lot of confusion and
disturbs others engaged in their own duas, making them lose focus and khushoo'.
And obviously, it is also not befitting that one should shout and raise his voice in a
place so sacred as the Haram.
The right thing to do is to know, before you go for tawaaf, the duas that you will be
making, the Qur'aan you will be reciting, etc. so that you don't have to follow
anybody. Rather you will be making your own dua, in your own language,
from your own heart. This will give you better concentration and satisfaction. Plan
your duas ahead of time, repeat them to yourself, with humility and khushoo'. After
all, you're making dua to the One Who hears all and sees all.
The Prophet (Sal Allaahu Alaiyhi wa sallam) said:Each one of you is conversing with
his Lord, so do not disturb one another or raise your voices over one another when
reading [or he said] when praying. [Abu Dawood, saheeh by al-Albaani]
It was narrated from Abu Saeed that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be
upon him) said: There is no Muslim who does not offer any duaa in which there is
no sin or severing of family ties but Allaah will give him one of three things in
return: either He will answer his duaa sooner, or he will store it up for him in the
Hereafter, or He will divert an equivalent evil away from him because of it. They
said: We will say a lot of duaa. He said: Allaah is more generous. [Narrated by
Ahmad (10749), classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Targheeb walTarheeb (1633).]

Mistake #4. Designating specific duas for specific rounds:


There are some people who make specific duas for each round and there are even
books that have specific duas written for each specific round, with dua #1 to be
read for round #1 and so on. This is not something from the Sharee'ah. The

Compiled by : www.the-finalrevelation.blogspot.com

Prophet (Sal Allaahu Alaiyhi wa sallam) did not recite any specific dua in any of the
rounds, and neither did his companions. If there was such a thing, then he would
have told us about it, and he would have done so himself first.
The only dua that he did specify during Tawaaf, was when he reached at the end of
each circuit between the Yemeni Corner and the Black Stone, and he would say:
Rabbana atina' fid-dunya hasanatan wa fil-akhirati hasana wa qina adhaban-nar.
(Our Lord, give us good in this world and good in the Hereafter and save us from
the punishment of the Fire.)

Mistake #5. Doing Tawaaf on someone else's behalf:


Many people make this mistake. They circumambulate the Ka'bah 7 times and then
they donate the reward of this tawaaf to their loved ones, their family members or
their relatives who have passed away. Also, when people go for Hajj or Umrah,
their relatives and friends specifically ask them to do one tawaaf on their behalf.
This is not valid and there is no evidence for its permissibility.
You see, Tawaaf is a kind of prayer and you cannot pray on someone else's behalf.
Can you? Similarly, you cannot do just tawaaf by itself on someone else's behalf
either. However, if you were doing an entire Hajj or Umrah on someone's behalf,
then the tawaf would be automatically be on the other person's behalf anyway. But
to do tawaaf by itself, meaning 7 rounds around the Ka'bah and donating the
reward to someone else is not correct and not proven from the prophet (s.a.w)

Mistake #6. Going to Tan'eem again and again for multiple


Umrahs:
Some people perform multiple Umrahs after finishing their own, going outside
Makkah either to Masjid Aaisha (Tan'eem) or other meeqaat points, put on a new
Ihraam and repeat Umrahs again and again. Some of them do an Umrah a day,
some even more! This is also NOT from the Sunnah. And NOT the practice of the
Sahaabah and neither is this point (Masjid Aisha) to be taken as a point of Meeqat
as will be explained below.
If it was good to do multiple Umrahs all in one trip, surely the Prophet (Sal Allaahu
Alaiyhi wa sallam) would have done so himself and the Sahaabah would have done
so too. But we see that although the Prophet (Sal Allaahu Alaiyhi wa sallam) stayed

Compiled by : www.the-finalrevelation.blogspot.com

in Mecca for 19 days after the conquest of Mecca, he did NOT leave Mecca to do
`Umrah, even though he could have easily done so.
Sheikh al-`Uthaymeen said: Ibn Taymiyah mentions that the Salaf are agreed that
making multiple `Umrahs (in one go) is disliked. In any case, leaving Mecca and
going to the boundary of the sacred precincts to make a second or third `Umrah
is an unfounded practice that was unknown during the time of the Prophet (peace
be upon him). The only exception to this was the case where `Aishah (r.a) sought
permission to make a single `Umrah after Hajj because of special circumstances. If
it was generally recommended to leave Mecca to perform `Umrah in this way, the
Prophet (peace be upon him) would have encouraged his Companions to do so.
And it Is known that Aisha (r.a) performed more Umrah and Hajj after the prophet
(s.a.w), but never did she take that place (Masjid Aisha) as a meeqat point.
Actually, instead of making multiple Umrahs, the better thing to do and the worship
that will earn more rewards, biidhnillaah, is to perform as many tawaaf as you can
for yourself. Like I said before, tawaaf is an Ibaadah that cannot be done anywhere
else except Makkah and this is a golden opportunity.

Mistake #7. Touching or wiping over the Ka'bah, any part of


Masjid al-Haraam or Masjid an-Nabawi:
Some people try and touch any and every part of the Ka'bah or Maqaame
Ibraaheem, kiss it, rub it, hug it, thinking that there is blessing or barakah in it. Or
they touch or wipe their hands on the different parts of Masjid al-Haraam or Masjid
an-Nabawi, and then they wipe over themselves, thinking that this is something
good or it will be source of blessing for them. But again, this is another act with no
basis in the Sharee'ah of Islam. The Prophet (Sal Allaahu Alaiyhi wa sallam) did
not touch any part of Ka'bah except the Black Stone and the Yemeni Corner. If it
was good, he would have done so. But he didn't and so we don't either.
Note: To stand and supplicate at Al-Multazam that is the place between the corner
and the door of the Kabah is recommended as the supplication is answered there,
but the women should make sure that they do not do anything to stick to men or
come in rigid contact with men no matter where it is ( black stone, door etc) and
this is the opinion of Ibn Taymiyah (r.h) and other aslaaf.

Mistake #8. Thinking that praying forty prayers in Madeenah


is compulsory:
Some people think that you have to complete forty prayers in the Prophet's Masjid
and that this is necessary and part of Hajj. It's not. This is based on a weak
hadeeth. Neither is it necessary to complete forty prayers there nor is visiting
Madeenah a part of Hajj. Obviously it is good if you can spend as much time as you
can in Madeenah and pray as much as you can in Masjid an-Nabawi. But to think
that one has to complete forty prayers there is not correct. You can pray one day or
one hour or one month or whatever is according to your hajj program. It does not
have to be forty prayers
This hadeeth was narrated by Ahmad (12173) from Anas ibn Maalik from the
Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him), who is reported to have said,
Whoever prays forty prayers in my Mosque (Masjid un nabwi), missing no
prayer, it will be recorded that he is safe from the Fire, is saved from
punishment and is free of hypocrisy. This is a daeef (weak) hadeeth.
This was mentioned by Shaykh al-Albaani in al-Silsilah al-Daeefah (364), who
said: It is daeef. He also mentioned it in Daeef al-Targheeb (755) and said, it is
munkar (rejected hadeeth).
Al-Albaani said in his book Hujjat al-Nabi (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon
him) (p. 185) that it is an innovation (bidah) to visit Madeenah and tell the visitors
to Madeenah to stay there for a week so that they will be able to offer forty prayers
in the Prophets Mosque so that they will be free from hypocrisy and saved from the
Fire.
Shaykh Ibn Baaz said:
With regard to the widespread idea that the visitor should stay for eight days so
that he can offer forty prayers in the Mosque is wrong. Although it says in some
ahaadeeth Whoever offers forty prayers therein Allaah will decree that he is safe
from the Fire and free from hypocrisy, this hadeeth is daeef according to the
scholars and cannot be taken as proof or relied upon. There is no set limit for
visiting the Prophets Mosque. If a person visits for an hour or two, or a day or two,
or for more than that, there is nothing wrong with that. [Fataawa Ibn Baaz,
17/406]
Instead of this hadeeth we should look at the hasan hadeeth narrated by alTirmidhi (241) concerning the virtue of always being present for the opening
takbeer of prayer in congregation. It was narrated that Anas ibn Maalik said: The
Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said,
Whoever prays for forty days with the congregation, always being present
for the first takbeer, it will be written that he will be safe from two things:

Compiled by : www.the-finalrevelation.blogspot.com

he will be safe from the Fire and safe from hypocrisy. [Classed as hasan
by al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Tirmidhi, 200]
The virtue mentioned in this hadeeth is general and applies to any mosque where
prayers are offered in congregation, in any land; it does not apply only to al-Masjid
al-Haraam [in Makkah] or al-Masjid al-Nabawi [in Madeenah].
However, there are other virtues of praying in Masjid Ul Nabawi such as the below
hadeeth.
Narrated from Jaabir (may Allaah be pleased with him), that the
Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said:
One prayer in my mosque is better than one thousand prayers elsewhere,
except al-Masjid al-Haraam, and one prayer in al-Masjid al-Haraam is
better than one hundred thousand prayers elsewhere. [Ahmad and Ibn
Majaah (1406)]
This hadeeth was classed as saheeh by al-Mundhiri and al-Busayri. Al-Albaani said:
Its isnaad is saheeh according to the conditions of the two Shaykhs [al-Bukhaari
and Muslim]. End quote from Irwa al-Ghaleel (4/146).

13) SOME MISTAKES &


MISUNDERSTANDINGS OF WOMEN
DURING PILGRIMAGE
Mistake #1: Thinking that their irm is the 'cap' they wear
over their head

Some Muslimahs do not know what irm means and they think it's the cap that
they put on over their hair. They don't take it off no matter what, thinking they will
break their irm. Irm is a state that you enter into and putting on any item of
Compiled by : www.the-finalrevelation.blogspot.com

clothing when you enter into the state of irm does not mean that you cannot take
it off later. And taking it off does NOT mean that you ended your irm. That's why
the 'ulem' say we can change our irm (meaning our clothes), and even wash it if
it gets dirty.
It is permissible for the pilgrim in irm for Hajj or 'Umrah to change his irm
clothes and put on another set of irm clothes, and that does not affect his irm
for Hajj or 'Umrah. (Standing Committee for Academic Research and Issuing
Fatwas, Fataawa al-Lajnah, 11/185)

Mistake #2. Excessive fear of breaking their hair


Some women have an excessive fear of breaking their hair. So much so that they
don't take off their scarf/dupatta/hijb, even when they're by themselves or among
just women. They are so worried about their hair breaking, that they don't even
take off their headpiece for making wu'. This is a trick of the Shaytn. Think
about it. If you don't do wu' properly, would your prayer be valid? Would
your tawf be valid? Do you really think Allh would hold you accountable if you did
something that was not in your control? No of course not. He is The Most Merciful.
He is the Most Forgiving. Then, why would He nullify your irm just because a few
hair fell out on their own, something that was out of your control? The prohibition is
for the hair to be cut, plucked, shaved, etc. on purpose. Not involuntarily.

Mistake #3: Getting their hair cut ONLY by someone who has
exited irm
Many women think that ONLY the one who is NOT in irm can cut their hair, once
they've finished with their rituals. And they refuse to cut their own hair to
exit irm nor do they allow another sister who has not yet exited irm to cut it for
them, thinking that she is not allowed to do that for them. This is a wrong notion.
Actually, if you think about it, you are supposed to cut your hair when you finish
with all the rituals.
The Prophet (allallhu 'alayhi wa sallam) commanded his companions, during the
Farewell Pilgrimage: Let him cut his (meaning, his own) hair then exit irm. (alBukhri, Muslim)

Compiled by : www.the-finalrevelation.blogspot.com

Mistake #4: Crowding with the men


Beware of crowding with men in all the rituals of Hajj, especially during awf and
at the Black Stone, during Sa'i and when stoning the Jamarat. Choose times when
there is less crowding. Think about it. Touching the Black Stone is a
beautiful Sunnah, but it is a sunnah. And protecting yourself and your hay' from
coming in unnecessary contact with all non-mahram men is a FARDH.
The Mother of Believers, ''ishah used to do awf in an area away from the men,
and she did not touch the Black Stone or the Yemeni Corner if there was crowding.
It was narrated that 'Ata' said: ''ishah used to do awf far away from the men,
not mixing with them. A woman said: O Mother of the Believers, let us go and
touch the Black Stone! She said: Go yourself, and she refused to go

Mistake # 5: Rushing through 'ibdah. Remember it's about


quality, NOT quantity

Remember that Allh will look at the quality of your worship, NOT your quantity.
And that's why our deeds will be weighed on the Day of Judgment and not counted.
If you pray just two rakah with khush', concentrating on what you are saying,
beseeching Allh with humility, wouldn't that be better and more acceptable to
Allh than even 50 or even a 100 rakah quickly pecking the ground, without
knowing a word of what you are saying?
Every time you do any 'ibdah, check to see whether you have khushoo or not? Are
you focused in what you are doing? Do you know the meaning of what you are
saying or asking? Are you moving at a slow, measured pace or are you rushing
through it?

Compiled by : www.the-finalrevelation.blogspot.com

Remember what the Prophet (allallhu 'alayhi wa sallam), said: The worst type of
thief is the one who steals from his prayer! The Companions asked, Oh Messenger
of Allh! How does one steal from his prayers? The Prophet (allallhu 'alayhi wa
sallam), responded,
He does not complete his bowing, nor his prostrations. Or he said He does not
straighten his backbone while bowing and prostrating. (Ahmed, Al-abarani,
othersauthentic)

Mistake #6: Misbehaving in the Masjid of the Prophet


One of the worst mistakes that I see the sisters making is at the Prophet's
(allallhu 'alayhi wa sallam) Masjid. When the doors are opened, in the morning
and evening, for the sisters so that they can visit the Raudah of the Prophet
(allallhu 'alayhi wa sallam), they totally lose all sense of who they are, where
they are and what they are doing. They run like wild animals let loose, shouting and
screaming in ignorance, pushing each other, trampling anyone and everyone that
comes in their way.
SubnAllh sisters! Is this what the Prophet (allallhu 'alayhi wa sallam), taught
us?! Is this the way you behave in a Masjid, let alone the Prophet (allallhu 'alayhi
wa sallam)'s Masjid?! Is this the respect he (allallhu 'alayhi wa sallam), deserves
from you?
Remember when visiting the Prophet (allallhu 'alayhi wa sallam),'s Masjid, to
behave with honor and dignity, with the hayaa' that Allh has adorned you with, as
a believing Muslim woman would. Remember to keep your voice soft and your walk
paced. Don't shove, push, harm or hurt your fellow Muslim sisters. Even if you
didn't get a chance to pray in that area, if you let your sister pray there for the sake
of Allh just because she is your Muslim sister, Allh will reward you, and He knows
best, perhaps even more than He would have, had you yourself had a chance to
pray there.
