A Guide to Umrah Visa

Rituals and Attire: How to perform umrah?

While Hajj holds its place as a mandatory pillar of Islam, Umrah is Sunnah. It is a spiritual journey by all Muslims regardless of gender, age, or cultural background. It is a sign of their devotion to Allah.

Performing Umrah involves specific duas for Umrah and a series of sacred rituals including Ihram, Tawaf, Sa'i, and Halq or Taqsir. Men wear the Ihram, two white unsewn clothes, while women wear modest, loose-fitting clothing covering all but the hands and face.

MUDI HajjUmra Services offers updated Umrah guidelines and travel resources to help you plan a smooth and fulfilling pilgrimage.

Umrah Guidelines: 

  • Ihram: Start at the Miqat. Wear Ihram clothing and make Niyyah (intention).
  • Tawaf: Circumambulate the Kaaba seven times, starting at the Black Stone.
  • Sa’i: Walk between Safa and Marwah seven times, commemorating Hagar's search for water.
  • Halq or Taqsir: Conclude Umrah by shaving (for men) or trimming (for women) the hair.
