You can't do Hajj at ANYTIME except its specified due time in the 12th month of Dhu al-Hijjah. Umrah, on the other hand, is open ended; you can do it absolutely anytime. The best time for Umrah (the time when the Prophet (PBUH) did all of his 4 Umrahs) is the 11th Arabic month of Dhu al-Qa'dah.

'Umrah/'Omrah العمرة has no special time in the year you can do it whenever you want to. You even can perform or combine hajj and 'Omrah at the same time, however the period of hajj is limited and fixed by the qur'an (Why Quran use 'Months' for period of Hajj?)... of course if a person wants to perform 'Omrah during the period of hajj it is highly ...

All perfect praise be to Allah I will try be as short as possible. An-Nawawi may Allaah have mercy upon him said: 'If a person in a state of Ihraam (either for Hajj or 'Umrah) needs to cover his head, or wear any limb-fitting clothes for a sound reason like heat, cold or treatment, then it is permissible for him to cover but he is obliged to ...

In the name of Allah, the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful To be honest, I don’t know what its precise phrase is, but as far as I can remember, (according to Shia Islam) it is not Wajib to recite the exact phrase of the Salah. Actually, it could be sufficient if you know what you are saying prayer for. I mean it is enough if you know about the ...

It has been recorded that the Messenger of Allah (saws) performed a total of four Umrahs and one Hajj pilgrimage. Umrah 1: 6th Hijri, after the Treaty of Hudaibiya. Although he was not allowed to visit the Kaaba by the polytheists of Makkah to perform Umrah, it is still counted as an Umrah. He came out of the Ehram, shaved his head, and sacrificed his hadi (...

Allah the almighty says: Prohibited to you [for marriage] are ... your brother's daughters, your sister's daughters, ....

The very simple question has been complicatedly answered here, after Ramadan every year the Saudi government stop issuing Umra Visas until completion of the Hajj. And even after Hajj for reasons of a thorough clean-up and Hujjaj to return back to their respective homelands NO UMRA VISAS are issued until start of Safar. So technically the Umra season starts ...

Anything you would do with good intentions and in the way prescribed in Quran and Sunnah, either it is from the rights of Allah (Huqooq-ullah) or from the rights of his servants (Huqooq-al-Ibad), Allah(S.W.T) will be pleased with you.

It is not prescribed and is against the sunnah for women to run. عن عائشة أنها سئلت: على النساء رمل؟ فقالت: أليس لكن بنا أسوة؟ ليس عليكن رمل بالبيت، ولا بين الصفا والمروة Ayesha was asked: Should women do Raml? She said: Is our way not made an example for you? Not on you is Raml of the House (in tawaf), nor between Safa and Marwa. — مصنف ابن أبي شيبة

There's no such thing as a minimum amount of spotting. Once menses is recognized by its attributes it is menses no matter how few it is and all related rulings apply. And menses only ends when there's no trace of it. And one can go on with his worship after taking ghusl.

The hadith you refer to is qualified as weak (see for example here the doubt expressed by al-Hakim from Nishapur about one narrator who basically is truthful) or fabricated by some scholars others consider it sahih, but maybe the most correct view is that it reaches the level of hassan (due to the sum of narrations and reports containing similar information)...

haj is obligatory one time in a life if you have enough financial resources so it is better to perform first haj then umrah.

Umra is a religious pilgrimage but does not constitute to the five pillars of Islam. However, if one wants to do it then there is no prohibition either. If you can't afford umra becuase your baby is crying or financial constraints you may go home. God is not going to hold you accountable for things that are beyond your ability to control. Secondly, Sex in ...

Yes you can have a safety pin to hold your "Ahram" or "Ihram". But when i was going for Umrah, i bought a book. It was written that you cannot use stitched cloth to cover your body or on your body. Safety pins and the belt to keep safe your personal belongings are good to have so no problem in have that.


1

Is it just safety pins or belt you can use to keep your ihram izaar up? Some use nothing - pretty confident just in case.

When doing my haj the Malaysian authorities gave us big saftey pins to keep our top ihram from falling off. So yes you can use them.

wasalam, If you had decided to do umrah before traveling, and from the time you started your journey your intention was to do umrah, then you should enter ihram from the miqaat, because the intention to do umrah had already been formed. So, if you're landing in Jeddah and going straight to Mekkah, then you should be in state of ihram before landing in ...

Since you're already in Mekka, you have to go outside the sacred area and do ihram from there. I think the common place mekkans is a Masjid called Tanim, located beyond the haram of the city.

Performing Umrah (or Hajj) doesn't cleanse you of sins. The only way you can cleanse yourself of your sins is when you repent sincerely and decide not to repeat them. But if your sins are those where you have wronged someone, then unless you seek repentance from that person and compensate him for your wrong doings, you won't be able to cleanse yourself of ...

In the name of Allah, the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful According to my researches, it is not necessary for you to take trip to Mecca with Ihram (pilgrim's specific garb). In other words, Miqat is the place which Hojjaj wear their Ihrams (for Umrah Tamato’). It consists of five places (from the perspective of Shia Islam): 1: The mosque of ...

According to this fatwa from IslamWeb you are not allowed to enter Mecca unless you were a Muhrim (Made the Niyah earlier and wore the ihram). Those living there are an exception. If you just finished your Umrah. That's when you can go to Aisha's mosque (also called Tana'eem mosque) and redo your Ihram. Hence, if you are going directly to mecca, then you ...

You can make your repeated Umrah using the same cloth [2] but to catch the sunnah you should take shower [1] and differently you have to take off your cloth. But you don't want to do that so only make Niyyah. http://fatwa.islamweb.net/fatwa/index.php?page=showfatwa&Option=FatwaId&Id=159221 https://www.binbaz.org.sa/noor/9971 I hope my answer is ...

The simple answer is that God rewards what He loves howsoever He pleases. He has not placed upon us in the religion any difficulty, so why would you think that there's higher reward in more difficult actions? He loves those who purify themselves, He loves those who fear Him, He loves those who are steadfast, He loves those who rely upon Him, so why should ...

I want to travel from Germany to Jeddah and my wife and baby daughter of 16 months will also be traveling with me. I want to perform Umrah with my wife and daughter, but If I wear Ihram from Germany or on flight then it will be difficult for me to handle the luggage and my baby daughter. Will it be okay for me if I stay in a hotel in Makkah and then go to ...

Wa Alaikum Assalam. What you asked is not allowed, however there is an alternative. I was in a similar situation last year when I went to Ummrah with my family. It is an inconvenience to be in Ihram during flight, and at the airport once you land Jeddah. What I learnt from experience and what I would recommend every one, and what I will do Insha-Allah ...
