Ihram

Ihram refers to the sacred state a pilgrim must enter before carrying out the rites of Hajj and Umrah. The pilgrim must enter into this state after cleansing the body, wearing the prescribed attire and making the intention, before crossing the designated Miqat.

  • When to Enter into Ihram

Ihram must be assumed before crossing the Miqat boundary. If the Miqat is crossed without having entered into the state of Ihram, a penalty will be due in atonement, although the Hajj will remain valid.

  • Miqat

Miqat refers to the boundary where it becomes necessary for pilgrims to adorn the Ihram garments and impermissible to pass except in the state of Ihram. Those who cross the boundary without having entered into the state of Ihram must perform an animal sacrifice as expiation.

  • Ihram Preparation

Prior to wearing the Ihram attire, you should be in a state of physical purity and take care of your personal hygiene at home, as instructed by the Prophet ﷺ. Abu Hurayrah I narrates

I heard the Prophet ﷺ saying: ‘Five things are part of nature: circumcision, removing the pubic hair, trimming the moustache, clipping the nails and removing the hair under the armpit.

If you haven’t done so already, you should ensure you

  • Clip your finger and toe nails.
  • Remove the hair under the armpits.
  • Remove the hair under the navel.
  • Trim the moustache.

You should then perform Ghusl, a highly recommended act for those intending to assume Ihram. It is Sunnah for every man, woman and child, including those women experiencing menses or post-natal bleeding, to bathe prior to donning the Ihram garments. A woman experiencing menstruation may fulfill all the rituals of Hajj except Tawaf of the Kaaba and the two Rakahs of Nafl accompanying it.

  • Ihram for Men

Ihram garments for men consists of two, normally white, clean seamless pieces of cloth. The sheet which wraps around the waist covering the lower body is known as the Izar and the sheet that is draped over the upper body like a shawl is known as the Rida. Sandals shouldn’t cover the heel and ankle. Ensure you put on your Ihram attire before crossing the designated Miqat.

  • Ihram for Women

Women aren’t required to conform to a specific dress code. Clothing should be normal modest Islamic dress with a head covering of any color. Hands and faces must remain exposed although socks may be worn.

  • Salah al-Ihram

It’s Sunnah to perform two Rakahs of Salah before entering into the state of Ihram. This can be performed after getting changed at the airport or in-flight before crossing the Miqat providing there are prayer facilities on-board. Observe the prayer with the intention of performing two Rakahs Nafl for Ihram.



Intentions

Niyyah is translated as “intention” and is an essential prerequisite for the performance of any type of Ibadah. Niyyah does not need to be uttered by the tongue, rather it should be made from the heart. Once you have entered into Ihram with a specific Niyyah, you can’t change that intention to perform another type of Hajj.

  • Niyyah for Hajj

This Niyyah is to be made if you’re performing Hajj al-Tamattu (after Umrah has been completed) or Hajj al-Ifrad (only Hajj).

لَبَّيْكَ اللَّهُمَّ حَجًّا

Labbayk Allahumma Hajj.

O Allah, here I am to perform Hajj.


اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّيْ أُرِيْدُ الْحَجَّ

Allahumma Innee Ureedul Hajj.

O Allah, I intend to perform Hajj.


اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّيْ أُرِيْدُ الْحَجَّ فَيَسِّرْهُ لِيْ وَتَقَبَّلْهُ مِنِّيْ

Allahumma Innee Ureedul Hajja fa Yassir-hu lee wa Taqabbal-hu Minnee.

O Allah, I intend to perform Hajj, so make it easy for me and accept it from me.


  • Niyyah for Umrah and Hajj

This Niyyah is to be made if you’re performing Hajj al-Qiran (Umrah and Hajj together).

لَبَّيْكَ اللَّهُمَّ عُمْرَةً وَ حَجًّا

Labbayk Allahumma Umratan wa Hajj.

O Allah, here I am to perform Umrah and Hajj.


اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّيْ أُرِيْدُ الْعُمْرَةَ وَ الْحَجَّ

Allahumma Innee Ureedul Umrataw-wa Hajj.

O Allah, I intend to perform Umrah and Hajj.


اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّيْ أُرِيْدُ الْعُمْرَةَ وَ الْحَجَّ فَيَسِّرْهُمَا لِيْ وَتَقَبَّلْهُمَا مِنِّيْ

Allahumma Innee Ureedul Hajja fa Yassir-hu lee wa Taqabbal-hu Minnee.

O Allah, I intend to perform Umrah and Hajj, so make them easy for me and accept them from me.


  • Niyyah with a Stipulation (Ishtirat)

If you feel that something may potentially hinder the performance of your Hajj or Umrah, such as illness, you can add the following stipulation to your Niyyah

اللَّهُمَّ مَحِلِّي حَيْثُ حَبَسْتَنِي

Allāhumma maḥilli ḥaithu ḥabastani.

O Allah, I will exit Ihram from the point You have prevented me.


  • Niyyah for Others

If you are performing Hajj on behalf of someone else, such as your mother or your father, the Niyyah would be as follows

بَّيْكَ اللَّهُمَّ حَجًّا عَنْ ……. بِنْ / بِنْت

Labbayka llāhumma ḥajjan ‘an ……….. bin / bint

O Allah, I intend to perform Hajj for ……….. son / daughter of



Mina

  • Leaving for Mina

It is a Sunnah to leave for Mina on the 8th of Dhul Hijjah after sunrise as was the practice of the Holy Prophet ﷺ. Recite Talbiyah frequently during this journey.

  • Walking

You may also walk from Makkah to Mina if you wish to do so.

  • The walk begins from the pedestrian tunnels which are located between Safa and Marwah, taking you directly to the Jamarat in Mina.
  • Arrival

When you arrive in Mina, you will be struck by the fact that everything looks the same, so you must be careful not to get lost.

  • In Mina
  • You will stay in Mina for the full day and part of the following day (9th of Dhul Hijjah).
  • You will perform Dhuhr, Asr, Maghrib and Isha prayers in Qasr form i.e. you will shorten the prayers as if you were a traveller.
  • You will spend the night of the 8th of Dhul Hijjah in Mina.
  • With this, your first day of Hajj has been completed.


Talbiyat

The Talbiyah is a devotional prayer uttered by pilgrims during Hajj after making the intention to enter into the state of Ihram. It is recited frequently throughout the pilgrimage. After making your Niyyah, you must recite the Talbiyah to validate your intention and enter into the state of Ihram. The utterance of the Talbiyah is Wajib according to the Hanafi and Maliki schools of thought. The Shafi’i and Hanbali schools consider it a Sunnah.

  • Method of Recital

The Sunnah method of reciting the Talbiyah is to briefly pause at four places, indicated by the dashes. The prayer is as follows

لَبَّيْكَ اللهُمَّ لَبَّيْكَ – لَبَّيْكَ لَا شَرِيْكَ لَكَ لَبَّيْكَ – إِنَّ الْحَمْدَ وَالنِّعْمَةَ لَكَ وَالْمُلْكَ – لَا شَرِيْكَ لَكَ –

After uttering the Talbiyah, you will now be in a state of Ihram and be known as a Muhrim.

  • When to Recite

Talbiyah should be recited as much as possible throughout Hajj and Umrah. It is recommended to read it in all conditions including while standing, sitting, walking, travelling in a vehicle, laying down, in a state of minor or major impurity or during menstruation.

It is recommended to repeat the Talbiyah three or more times.

It should not be read during Tawaf or Sa’i.

Hajj pilgrims should continue to recite the Talbiyah until the stoning of Jamarah al-Aqaba takes place on the 10th of Dhul Hijjah, or just before performing Tawaf al-Ziyarah if that is performed first.

  • Legal Status

The recitation of the Talbiyah is considered to be Wajib by Hanafis and Malikis so neglecting it would render the Hajj invalid according to these schools.

From the Shafi’i and Hanbali perspectives, it is a Sunnah to recite the Talbiyah so if a person leaves it out, the pilgrimage would still remain valid.
