Meaning of Umrah

Umrah is an Arabic word that means “to visit a populated place”. In Islam, it refers to a pilgrimage to the holy city of Makkah in Saudi Arabia, which can be performed at any time of the year. Although it is disliked to carry out the pilgrimage during the days of Hajj which take place between the 9th and 13th of Dhul Hijjah. The rites carried out during Umrah also form an integral part of Hajj itself. Unlike the obligatory pilgrimage of Hajj, which is one of the Five Pillars of Islam and must be performed once in a lifetime by every able-bodied and financially capable Muslim, Umrah is a voluntary act of worship. However, it is highly recommended in Islam and is believed to bring great blessings and rewards from Allah.

In terms of Shariah, Umrah comprises of passing the Miqat in the state of Ihram, performing Tawaf (circumambulation) around the Kaaba, doing Sa’i  (walking seven times between the hills of Safa and Marwah). and carrying out Halq (shaving) or Taqsir (shortening) of the hair.
