    This stage includes the process of performing Umrah from the beginning to the end of the religious ritual, including the process of Ihram.

    You will begin by entering the state of Ihram, which takes place during the following situations: 

    1. Miqat Qarn Al Manazil, also known as Al Sayl Al Kabeer, for the people of Najd and surrounding areas.  
    2. Miqat Abyar Ali, also known as Miqat Dhul Hulaifa, for the people of Madinah and surrounding areas.  
    3. Miqat Al Juhfah, for people from Al Sham and surrounding areas. 
    4. Miqat Yalamlam, for the people of Yemen and surrounding areas. 
    5. Miqat Dhat Irq, for the people of Iraq and surrounding areas. 
    6. Miqat Al Tan’im or Miqat Al Jaaranah, for the people of Makkah. 
    7. Entering the state of Ihram takes place when travelling by land or when it is possible after getting off the plane. However, in the case of air travel, it is not permissible to delay the stage of Ihram, the Ihram must be worn before boarding the airplane or on the airplane. 
    8. It is recommended to wash and purify yourself at the time of Ihram, either before the miqat, at the miqat, or upon arrival in Makkah. It is also recommended for men to apply a perfume.
    9. Start with the intention of performing the ritual by reciting, “O Allah, here I am to perform Umrah”. In case you are concern that you might not be able to perform the rituals due to illness or personal circumstances, you could recite, “If He imprisoned me, then my home is where You locked me up".
    10. Avoid the prohibitions of Ihram, such as cutting of the nails and hair, applying perfume, covering of the head and wearing sewn clothes (for men), covering the face except when passing foreign men (for women), hunting, entering into marriage, and other prohibitions of Ihram until the completion of the ritual Umrah.  
    11. Recite, “I am at Your service, O Allah, I am at Your service. You have no partner. I am at Your service. Praise and blessings belong to You, and the Kingdom. You have no partner", during your walk around the Ka’aba or when seeing the Kaaba. 
    12. You will then perform circumambulation (Tawaf) around the Ka’aba. You can use the Tawaf service for guidance and further explanation of the rituals by clicking here. 
    13. You will then walk between the mountains of Safa and Marwa. 
    14. You exit the state of ihram by shaving the hair (for men) and shortening the hair (for women) by an amount equivalent to a fingertip, or less, or more. Barber shops for men can be found around the Grand Mosque. You may ask the employees of the mosque to assist you with locating them.
