The Fundamentals of Haj Tamattui

The sequence of events done in Haj Tammatui (which counts for Haj and
Umrah) is as follows:

1. Entering into Ihram from Miqat

Before wearing the Ihram, one should take the opportunity to shower
and clean one's self. One must then wear the Ihram, which consists of
a loincloth and an apparel, with the head uncovered for men, whereas
women are to wear their Islamic custom, wearing neither face cover nor
gloves. However, a woman may cover her face with a slight veil only if
her beauty is tempting enough to cause seduction. Then the intention
is declared which is: "Labbayka-Allahumma-Hajjan"

After taking these steps it is prohibited for the pilgrims to wear
sewn clothes, remove or pluck hairs, clip nails, cover their heads,
use perfume, hunt, enter into marriage contracts, have sexual
intercourse, or cut the trees of the Sacred Precinct.

When the sacred precinct (miqat) is reached the talbiyah should be
chanted by men rasing their voice and saying:
"Labbayka-Allahumma-Labbayk. Labbayka La Sharika Laka Labbayk. Inna
Al-Hamda Wan-Ni`mata Laka Wal-Mulk. Laa Sharika Lak." However women
should let their voice be audible only to themselves.

2. Arrival Tawaf

Stop chanting Labbayk and go around the Ka`bah for seven circles.
Begin the Tawaf from the Black Stone. One must hasten during the first
three rounds of Tawaf and walk during the other four. On starting
Tawaf from the Black Stone say: "In the Name of Allah; Allah is

3. Sa`y (Going Between Safa and Marwah)

One must ascend Mount-Safa and recite the Quranic verse which goes,
"Behold! Safa and Marwa are among the Symbols of Allah. So if those
who visit the House in the Season or at other times, should compass
them round, it is no sin in them. And if any one obeyeth his own
impulse to good,- be sure that Allah is He Who recogniseth and knoweth."
(Al-Baqarah: 157)

Then one must face the Ka`bah and raise one's hands for supplication

fulfilled His Promise, gave victory to His servant, and defeated the

Safa to Marwah is reckoned as one circuit and coming back from Marwah
to Safa is another circuit.
