Tenets and Obligations of Umrah

Tenets and Obligations (Wajibat) of Umrah

Last Updated: February 8, 2024By

Umrah is a sacred religious journey, which can be undertaken at any time of the year. A person who performs Umrah must know the rulings, obligation and steps to perform this Holy Journey. Likewise, a pilgrim must be aware of the fact that this journey is a call from Allah Almighty and it can be a new beginning of a sin free life. A person should seek guidance regarding components and obligations of Umrah.

Tenets of Umrah
1-      Ihram

Ihram is a state by which you make intention for Umrah. It comes in a Hadith that, ‘Actions depend upon intentions’.

2-      Tawaaf

Prophet (S.A.W.W) has mentioned in a Hadith, ‘Those of you who do not have means to perform sacrifice; they should do Tawaf and should perform Sa-ee of Safah and Marwah’.

3-      Sa-ee
And it comes in another Hadith about Sa-ee, ‘Peform Sa-ee, Allah has made it obligatory upon you’.

Wajibat of Umrah

1-      To enter into Ihram outside the boundaries of Haram

Prophet (S.A.W.W) told Hazrat Ayesha (R.A) to enter into Ihram for Umrah from Maqam-e-Taneem

2-      To shave your hair

Prophet (S.A.W.W) said, ‘the person who performs Hajj or Umrah should get his hair shaved off and should open his Ihram’.

If a person leaves any of the components of Umrah, his Umrah will not be completed without fulfilling that part. But if a person leaves any obligation of Umrah then it can compensated with the sacrifice of an animal (dam). And if a person does intercourse before haircut during Umrah, then he should perform the sacrifice of a camel or a goat as ransom. And if a person intercourses before Tawaf of Umrah and after Tawaf before Sa-ee between Safa and Marwah then his Umrah will be nullified utterly.

Now, inability to perform Umrah can be overcome with Cheap Umrah Packages. Those who lack means to perform Umrah are no longer left out they can now seek blessings of this Holy journey.
