Umrah, also known as the minor pilgrimage, is not mandatory for Muslims but is a great way to refresh your faith. It is a Sunnah of our Holy Prophet (PBUH) and bears great rewards. Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) offered Umrah multiple times in his life. Therefore, all believers can perform it as many times as they like in their lifetime.
Many Muslims are unsure about the process of this religious practice, especially if they are performing it for the first time. So, if you are going for an Umrah this April, we have listed all the necessary steps of the process below for your convenience.
Once the pilgrims arrive at the Masjid al-Haram in the state of Ihram, they recite Talbiya as a symbol of their presence in the holy place. They continuously recite the verse or statement representing the oneness of the Almighty as they walk toward the Holy Kaaba.
The next step is to circle the Kaaba seven times while indulging yourself in a focused prayer. This circling is done in an anti-clockwise direction. Muslims start Tawaf from the sacred Black Stone at Kaaba's eastern corner. Each Tawaf lasts for at least 20 minutes or so. But this is not a fixed time duration for a Tawaf. It can vary depending on the amount of crowd at the moment. If the place gets too overcrowded, people must perform their Tawaf from Masjid's top floor.
After performing seven Tawafs, the next step for the pilgrims is to go to the Maqam-e-Ibrahim. This is the place where you recite verses from the Holy Quran. After visiting Maqam-e-Ibrahim, pilgrims are set to visit the holy well of Zamzam and drink the sacred water associated with Islamic history. They also bring empty bottles to fill with pure water to take home. The water of Zamzam is known to have Shifa for the ills.
The next step of Umrah is to go for Sai on the mounts of Safa and Marwah. It is a necessary step in the whole religious practice. And it involves completing seven rounds of walking between Mount Safa and Mount Marwah. It is also associated with a great event in Islamic history.
Taqsir is a practice that is a vital part of Umrah and is associated with shortening one's hair. This is the final obligation of Umrah, and after you have undergone it, you are not obligated to be in the state of Ihram.
