Every Muslim who is sane and healthy and who can afford it should undertake the pilgrimage to Makkah at least once in his or her lifetime.

umrah 7

ALLAH Almighty says in verse 197 of Surah Al Baqarah of Holy Quran:

Hajj is [during] well-known months, so whoever has made Hajj obligatory upon himself therein [by entering the state of ihram], there is [to be for him] no sexual relations and no disobedience and no disputing during Hajj. And whatever good you do – ALLAH knows it. And take provisions, but indeed, the best provision is fear of ALLAH. And fear Me, O you of understanding.

People must perform the rituals of Hajj and Umrah with respect, worship, love and submission to the ALLAH Almighty, in a peaceful and dignified manner, following the ways of our beloved Prophet (PBUH). These great rituals must be filled with Dhikr (remembering ALLAH Almighty), takbeer (proclaiming greatness of ALLAH Almighty by saying ALLAHU akbar), Tasbeeh (glorifying ALLAH Almighty by saying Subhaan-ALLAH), Tahmeed (praising Allah by saying al-hamdu Lillaah) and Istighfaar (seeking Allah’s forgiveness by saying Astaghfir-ULLAH), because pilgrim is in a state of worship from the time he enters in Ihram until he exits it; Hajj and Umrah is not a time for idle talk or doing anything wrong or prohibited It is the time of actual devotion and increase of excellent deeds. The pilgrim and others must regularly observe the things that the ALLAH Almighty has enjoined such as praying (namaz) in congregation on time, and enjoining what is superior and forbidding what is evil.

The pilgrim must strive to benefit the Muslims and treat them gently by guiding them, helping them when they needed, and being sympathetic towards the weak, especially in places where such kindness is appropriate, such as in crowded places. The pilgrim must avoid obscenity, wickedness, sin and arguing that does not support the reality. He must avoid aggressively towards people or irritating them, so pilgrim must avoid backbiting, nasty gossip, cursing, hitting, swearing, and looking at non-mehram women, for these things are Haraam (forbidden) whether a person is in a state of Ihram or not, but it becomes even more Haraam when a person is in Ihram.

Pilgrim should avoid things that several people do, such as saying words that do not suit the rituals of Hajj and Umrah. For example, when stoning the Jamaraat, some of them say that we are stoning the Shaitaan and they may curse the site or start hitting it with shoes etc., which is completely contrary to the idea of humbleness and worship, and defeats the reason of stoning the Jamaraat, which is to carry out the commands of the ALLAH Almighty.
