Pillars of Umrah
Umrah consists of five pillars, namely, Ihram, Tawaf, Saie, shave or trim the hair and adherence to the order of the pillars of Umrah.
Tawaf is the act of circling the Ka’aba seven times in counter clockwise direction with each circle beginning and ending at the Hajarul Aswad.
Saie in Umrah refers to the act of walking back and forth seven times starting from Safa’ Hill and ending at Marwah Hill.
Shave or Trim Hair
Shaving the entire head or trimming the hair is the obligatory act that must be performed in order to leave the state of Ihram.
Adherence to the Appropriate Order
The pillars of Umrah must be performed in the correct order.
- Niyyah for Ihram must come first before the other pillars
- Tawaf must come before Saie
- Shaving and trimming the hair must be done after Tawaf and Saie
