Umrah has been derived from I‘timaar, meaning a visit. According to Islam, ‘Umrah relates to paying a visit to Ka’bah and perform Tawaaf (circumambulation) around it, walking between Safaa and Marwah seven times. A performer of ‘Umrah has to put off his Ihraam for a complete hair-cut. ‘Umrah can be performed along with Hajj or during any time of the year.
During ‘Umrah, pilgrims do not go to Minaa, ‘Arafaat and Muzdalifah or throw pebbles on the Jamrahs (stone pillars representing devils) or offer animal sacrifice. These rites are only performed during Haj. But do not forget to supplicate to Allah, do it from the depth of your heart and you will be rewarded.
The first step for any pilgrim wishing to perform Haj is to enter in a state of Ihram, believed to be a special state of spiritual purity which prohibits many acts such as cutting of hair, nails, killing animals, uprooting plants or trees not sown by pilgrims in the boundary of the grand mosque. Men must put on a two piece cloth of white and unsown outfit.don a distinctive outfit consisting of two pieces of white, unsown, cloth. One of the pieces is wrapped around his midriff to cover his lower body, while the other is draped around his shoulders. Women must cover their bodies in a loose fitting outfit and cover their hair. However, they are not permitted to cover their faces.
