Hajj

Hajj is one of the five pillars of Islam and involves going to Makkah and performing certain rituals as well as visiting sacred places at a specified time of the year. Like Umrah, Twaaf and Saai are required in addition to standing in Arfa.

Hajj Rituals

On 8th of Dhul Hijjah, perform ghusl (washing the whole body), and then put on the two-piece garment of ihram (izar and rida). This applies to men only. A woman also makes ghusl and does not wear make up. She may wear any clothes she has available as long as they don't display adornments. She should be completely covered except for her face and hands. You make your intention to perform Hajj by saying; Labbayk Hajjan, or: Labbayk allahumma Hajjan, as following:
Labbayk, allahumma. Labbayk
Labbayk. La shareeka laka Labbayk
Innal-hamda wan-n'imata lak Walmulk.
(here I am at your service. lord, here I am, Truly, the praise and the favor is Yours, and the dominion.No partner do You have.)
You then go to Mina, where you pray the Dhuhr, Asr, Maghrib, Isha and Fajr prayers at their proper times, shortening prayers of four rak'as to two rak'as. You do not combine these prayers.
When the sun has risen on the 9th of Dhul-Hijjah proceed toward Arafat in a dignified manner and without harming your fellow pilgrims. At Arafat pray the Dhuhr and Asr prayers, shortened and combined during the time of Dhuhr with one adhan and two iqamahs.

Arafah Mount

When the sun has set, proceed toward Muzdalifah in a peaceful and dignified manner, reciting talbiyyah. When you arrive at Muzdalifah pray the Maghrib and Isha prayers combined, shortening Isha to two rak'ats. Stay at Muzdalifah until you have prayed the Fajr prayer.
Then wait until the brightness of the morning is wide spread, then proceed forward to Mina.
When you arrive at Mina do the following: At the Stone Pillar of Aqabah (this is the pillar nearest to Makkah) throw the seven pebbles one after the other saying "Allahu akbar" at each throw.
If you are required to sacrifice, slaughter you sacrificial animal. You are to eat some of its meat and distribute the major part of it to the needy.
Shave your head or cut some hair from it. Shaving is preferable for men, while for women the length of hair to be cut is that of a fingertip.
The above mentioned order of doing things is preferred, however, if they are done in some other order, there is no harm in it.
After you have thrown the pebbles and shaved or cut some of your hair, the prohibitions of ihram are lifted, excepting the prohibition of sexual intercourse with your spouse. This the first tahallul, i.e. returning to one's normal state. You are now able to wear your usual clothes.
Then you go to Makkah and perform the tawaf al-ifadah (the tawaf is an essential part of the Hajj), and perform sa'ye, if required. After this, the prohibition of marital relations is also lifted and you return to a completely normal life.
After performing your tawaf al-ifadah on the day of Sacrifice, return to Mina and stay there the nights preceding the 11th, 12th and 13th days of Dhul-Hijjah (the three days following the Day of Sacrifice which are known as ayyamu-tashreeq. It is however, permissible to spend only two nights in Mina instead of three.
At any time in the afternoon of each of the two or three days of your stay in Mina, stone each of the three Pillars, starting with the first Pillar (i.e. the one which is farthest from Makkah), followed by the middle Pillar and lastly the Pillar of Aqabah. Throw seven pebbles, one by one, at each of these Pillars, saying "Allahu akbar" at each throw.
If you stay in Mina for only two days, you must leave Mina before the sun sets on the second day. If the sun should set before you are able to depart, remain in Mina for the third night and throw pebbles again the next day. In any case it is preferable to remain in Mina for three nights.
It is permissible for the sick and the weak to appoint a proxy to throw their pebbles. The proxy first throws his own pebbles, followed by the pebbles of the person he represents. They are thrown at the same pillar.
If you decide to return to your country after completing the rites of hajj, you perform the Farewell Tawaf (tawaf al-wida) before leaving Makkah. No one is excused from this except women who are menstruating or in the period of discharge following childbirth.

Dua’a

• O Allah, I have indeed oppressed my soul excessively and none can forgive sin except You, so give me forgiveness from Yourself and have mercy upon me. Surely, You are the Most-Forgiving, The Most-Merciful.
• O Allah, by Your knowledge of the unseen and Your power over creation, keep me alive as long as You know such life to be good for me and take me if You know death to be better for me.
• O Allah, make me fearful of You whether in secret or in public and I ask You to make me fair in speech, in times of pleasure and anger. I ask You to make me moderate in times of wealth and poverty and I ask You for ever lasting bliss and joy which will never cease. I ask You to make me pleased with what You have decreed and for easy life after death. I ask You for the sweetness of looking upon Your Face and a longing to encounter You in a manner which does not entail a calamity which will bring about harm nor a trial which will cause deviation.
• O Allah, beautify us with adornment of faith and make us of those who guide and are rightly guided.
• O Allah I ask you every goodness that Your Prophet Muhammad asked You and I seek refuge with You from every evil that Your Prophet Muhammad sought refuge with You from it, but is You on Whom we depend and seek help and there is no might nor power except with Allah.

• O Allah give us good in this world and good in the Hereafter, and guard us from the torment of Fire.

Umrah

Umrah is visiting the Holy Mosque in Makkah and performing certain rituals at a specified time of the year. It involves Twaaf (circumambulating around Kabbah) and Saai (going back and forth between Safaa and Marwah), and finally cutting or shortening your hair.

Umrah Plus

The idea of extending the Umrah visit into a long trip outside the cities of Makkah and Al-Madinah includes visiting other cities, friends and relatives, shopping and participation in different recreational and sports activities.
This program has seen an increasing number of people extend their stay in the Kingdom since it was started. In 1423.H/2002/2003.AD, more than 2.5 million Muslim from 170 different countries in the world came to perform Umrah and visit the Mosque of the Prophet, peace be upon him, in Al-Madinah. Future visitors should consider extending their stay

There are a lot of travel agencies now that provide this service and organize trips to Abah, Jeddah, Riyadh, Dammam, Khubar and Thahran. However, there are a number of procedures and rules to be followed in these trips.

For full information, please contact one of the Umrah agencies in your country.

Umrah Rituals

When you reach the prescribed Station (al-miqat), make ghusl (a shower or a full wash of the body), and then put on the two-piece garment of ihram (izar and rida). This applies to men only.

Labbayk, allahumma. Labbayk
Labbayk. La shareeka laka Labbayk
Innal-hamda wan-n'imata lak Walmulk.
(here I am at your service. Lord, here I am,Truly, the praise and the favor is Yours, and the dominion.No partner do You have.)
When you reach Makkah, make seven circuits (tawaf) around the K'abah, beginning at the Black Stone and ending each at the same place.After completing the seventh circuit, pray two rak'ats behind the Station of Ibrahim (Maqam Ibraheem) if it is possible, even though you may be a little far from it. Otherwise at any other place within the Sacred Mosque. You then go to as-safa and do the sa'ye of the Umrah seven times. Starting at as-safa ending at Marwah. After sa'ye end your Umrah by shaving or shortening your hair. After this the prohibitions pertaining to the state of irram are lifted and you may now resume your normal life.
