Umrah Obligations | Minimum days for Umrah:
There are four obligations while performing Umrah; Ihram, Tawaf, Sa’ee and Qasar/ Halaq. Suppose if your flight lands at Jeddah Airport, it will take your much time in check out at the airport, then in travel from Jeddah to your hotel, then you will need food and rest because of long travels. You can start Umrah on the next day. So, on next day you will have to go to Haram after wearing/ having Ihram. It doesn’t take so long. After it, you will perform Tawaf.
Tawaf means you circle around Ka’bah 7 times during Umrah/ Hajj. Tawaf in Umrah takes almost 2 hours if there is no big crowd. If there is a large crowd Tawaf duration can be done in 3 to 4 hours. Now you will move to the 3rd obligation of Umrah i.e. Sa’ee (walking between Safa and Marwah). Sa’ee also takes 2 hours if the crowd is not so long.
