Haj Pilgrims Performing Umrah

After the intending pilgrims had their dinner and rest, they proceeded to perform the umrah. The intending haj pilgrims were led by mutawiff or haj guide appointed by the SCA.

The pillars of umrah are declaring the intention, tawaf or circumbulation of the Ka'bah, Sa'ie or walking between the hills of Safaa and Marwah, shaving part of the hair and performing them in an orderly manner, while the obligatory acts of umrah include declaring the intention and beginning the ihram from miqat or station and leaving behind forbidden acts while in ihram. After the umrah, the intending haj pilgrims will wait to perform wukuf in Arafah, in less than two weeks.
