Do’s and Don’ts of Umrah

For many Muslims annually, the Umrah they move on are their first. However, it still needs plenty of planning and preparation. Here are a few do's and don'ts for those undergoing Umrah for the first time.

Do: Bring Novels

Not only can it improve the religious experience you have when you're there, it may also help while away the many hours you'll spend waiting in airports and hotels as you finish Umrah.

Don't: Socialize, Litter or Behave Anti-Socially

Umrah is a sacred time for everybody involved with the sacred pilgrimage, even if you aren't in a holy site or getting involved in the Umrah rites. For some individuals, especially the old or young, this might be the only time they get the opportunity to make the pilgrimage, and they shouldn't have it spoiled by careless behaviour. It's very important to follow the rules and traditions of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, and to act with the respect and appreciate that Muhammad (PBUH) showed.

Do: Plan Where to Pray

Even though it can be exciting and awe-inspiring to be as close as possible to a sacred site, or into a Mosque, as you can get, the majority of the places you will see have lots of space to accommodate the millions of Hajjis who visit each year. For the best comfort, it is much better to decide on a more out of the way place to your real prayers when you've viewed the website. It's more comfortable for you and allows other people to find the website without the threat of a lot of worshippers.

Do Not: Pack Light

While it's a fantastic idea to get as little as possible with you once you're actually seeing the Sacred sites, you need to have a hotel room that's well stocked with clothing and provisions to create your Umrah as comfortable as you can. Ensure you've got loads of wet wipes, bags, water, and many different veils and shawls to make certain you have appropriate clothes for all weather conditions and events.
