According to Islamic terminology, the word Umrah essentially means visiting the Kaaba. This holy pilgrimage can be made anytime during the year whenever convenient. The Umrah pilgrimage involves a procedure that is followed by devotees.
The pillars of Umrah include:-
The pilgrims are expected to enter into a state of Ihraam which is assumed at the Meeqaat, then Tawaaf which is (circumambulation) around the house, later do Sa’y which involves walking between As-Safaa and Al-Marwah and finally Tahal-lul that means coming out of the state of Ihraam.
People all over the world irrespective of nationality, color or gender come together as one community united in Allah to acknowledge and worship HIM. The holy Kaaba in Mecca is considered as one of the most important pillars of the Islamic faith because it is the birthplace of Prophet, Hazrat Muhammad PBUH.
As part of the journey, the first location on the Umrah journey is arriving at Meeqaat, here is where both men and women take a bath. However, there is no compulsion for them to do so. The next location is a visit to the most sacred mosque in Makkah. People are supposed to perform Tawaf around the Kaaba while consistently praying and narrating ‘“Bismil-laahi wa Allahu Akbar”. The next stage is climbing mount Safaa and praying at the mount facing the Kaaba with focus.
It is the desire of every Muslim to perform Umrah atleast once in their lifetime. Certain rites of Umrah have been instructed by Prophet Hazrat Muhammad PBUH. For them that consistently seek HIS grace, Umrah is a good place to start.
