- Exit the Masjid with your left foot and recite the Dua for leaving the mosque.
- To leave the state of Ihram and complete your Umrah, you must have you head shaved (Halq) or trimmed by at least an inch (Taqsir).
- Women may only have their hair trimmed.
- There are a number of men’s barber shops outside the Haram.
As you leave Masjid al-Haram, step out with your left foot and recite the following Dua, as was the Sunnah of the Prophet ﷺ when leaving the mosque:
بِسْمِ اللهِ وَالصَّلَاةُ وَالسَّلَّامُ عَلَى رَسُولِ اللهِ، اللَّهُمَّ إَنِّي أَسْأَلُكَ مِنْ فَضْلِكَ
After Sa’i, you must have your hair shaved (Halq) or trimmed by at least an inch (Taqsir) in order to leave the state of Ihram and complete your Umrah. It is more virtuous for a man to have the head shaved completely.
Women may only have their hair trimmed.
Congratulations on your Umrah!
You are now free from the restrictions of Ihram and you may change into regular clothing. If you plan on performing another Umrah, you must travel to the boundary of the Haram in order to once again enter into Ihram. Most pilgrims choose to enter into Ihram at Masjid Aisha which is the nearest and most convenient location from Masjid al-Haram. Transportation to get there is available near the mosque.
