Nafal Salah.

If the time is not undesirable (Makruh), men offer two rakahs of nafl for ihram in the Haram Sharif by covering their heads, while women can offer these Nafils at home.

Intention and Talbiyah

Now uncover your head and declare your intention Saying “O Allah! I intend to perform Hajj. Please make it easy for me and accept it from me. Amen.” After that immediately Talbiya three times and as often possible which men should say in loud voice but women should say in subdued tone. Once ihram is worn all the prohibitions will be applicable.
