During Ihram, women are not permitted to cover their faces, while men are not permitted to cover their heads. Sandals should not cover the heel and ankle in the case of men.
Make Niyyah (intention) in any language at Miqat or close to it as you travel in its direction.

O Allah, I intend to perform Umrah, so accept it from me and make it easy for me.
Recite Talbiyah until you reach Masjid al-Haram. Women should recite Talbiyah in slow volume, while men should recite it loudly.
لَبَّيْكَ اللهُمَّ لَبَّيْكَ – لَبَّيْكَ لَا شَرِيْكَ لَكَ لَبَّيْكَ – إِنَّ الْحَمْدَ وَالنِّعْمَةَ لَكَ وَالْمُلْكَ – لَا شَرِيْكَ لَكَ –
At Your service, Allah, at Your service. At Your service, You have no partner, at Your service. Truly all praise, favour and sovereignty are Yours. You have no partner.
Reaching Masjid Al- Haram:
Always step through with your right foot while entering Masjid Al-Haram (Sacred Mosque) in Makkah and recite the following duas;
اَللَّهُمَّ هَذَا حَرَمُكَ وَأَمْنُكَ فَحَرِّمْنِي عَلَى النَّارِ، وَأَمِنِّي مِنْ عَذَابِكَ يَوْمَ تَبْعَثُ عِبَادَكَ، وَاجْعَلْنِي مِنْ أَوْلِيَائِكَ وَأَهْلِ طَاعَتِكَ.
Allah, this is Your sanctuary and security, so make me unlawful to Hell-Fire, make me safe from Your punishment on the day You resurrect Your servants; and make me one of Your friends and one of the people who obey You.
.بِسْمِ اللهِ، اللَّهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ. اللَّهُمَّ اغْفِرْ لِي وَافْتَحْ لِي أَبْوَابَ رَحْمَتِك
In the name of Allah, send blessings upon Muhammad ﷺ. O Allah, open for me the doors of Your Bounty.
أَعُوذُ بِاللهِ الْعَظِيمِ، وَبِوَجْهِهِ الْكَرِيمِ، وَسُلْطَانِهِ الْقَدِيمِ، مِنَ الشَّيْطَانِ الرَّجِيمِ
I seek protection in Allah the Tremendous, His Noble Countenance, and His pre-eternal Sovereign Might from Shaytan the rejected.
First Glimpse of the Kaaba:
When you first view the Kaaba, lift your hands and make Dua with absolute respect and devotion, as this is one of the sites where prayers are answered. When performing Dua, remember to recite Salawat upon the Prophet ﷺ. Ziyarat Places to Visit During Umrah

Raise your hands and make the following dua:
اَللَّهُمَّ زِدْ أَهْلَ هَذَا الْبَيْتَ تَشْرِيفاً وَتَعْظِيماً وَتَكْرِيماً وَمَهَابَةً، وَزِدْ مَنْ شَرَّفَهُ وَكَرَّمَهُ مِمَّنْ حَجَّهُ أَوْ اعْتَمَرَهُ تَشْرِيفاً وَتَكْرِيماً وَتَعْظِيماً وَبِرّاً.
Allah, increase this House in honour, esteem, respect and reverence. And increase those who honour and respect it—of those who perform Hajj or ‘Umrah—in honour, respect, esteem and piety.

Circling the Kaaba seven times is known as Tawaf. Before starting Tawaf, men should uncover their right shoulder by placing Ihram underneath the right armpit known as Idtiba.
Starting point of Tawaf:
The beginning of Tawaf is indicated by a green light on the Masjid wall facing the Kaaba, which indicates the location of Hajar Al Aswad (the black stone). Ensure the Hajar al-Aswad is on your right as you approach this starting location.
As you begin each circuit, point your right hand towar Hajar Al Aswad and recite:
Allah is the Greatest.
Make the following intention:
اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّيْ أُرِيْدُ طَوَافَ بَيْتِكَ الْحَرَامِ فَيَسِّرْهُ لِيْ وَتَقَبَّلْهُ مِنِّيْ
Allah, I intend to perform Tawaf of the Sacred Mosque, so accept it from me and make it easy for me.
Dua of Ali ,said in each circle, may be recited upon coming parallel to Hajar al-Aswad:
سْمِ اللَّهِ وَاللّٰهُ أَكْبَرُ، اللَّهُمَّ إِيْمَاناً بِكَ وَتَصْدِيْقاً بِكِتَابِكَ، وَوَفَاءً بِعَهْدِكَ، وَاتِّبَاعاً لِسُنَّةِ نَبِيِّكَ مُحَمَّدْ
In the name of Allah, Allah is the greatest. O Allah, out of faith in You, conviction in Your book, in fulfilment of Your covenant and in emulation of Your Prophet’s Sunnah ﷺ.
Proceed the Tawaf:
Turn right and begin the first round of your Tawaf, keeping the Kaaba on your left. Avoid walking through the Hijr Ismail by going counter-clockwise. We have the best packages for you so now you can book umrah packages in shawal.
Men should walk briskly during the first three circuits called Raml. At the same time, he can perform the rest of the four circuits at an average pace.
Dua’s for Tawaf:
There is no specific Dua during Tawaf. You can make dua of your choice in your language, and duas are always accepted during Tawaf.
It is sunnah, so always recite the following dua when going between Rukn Al-Yamani (Yemeni corner) and Hajar al-Aswad:
رَبَّنَا آتِنَا فِي الدُّنْيَا حَسَنَةً وَفِي الْآخِرَةِ حَسَنَةً وَقِنَا عَذَابَ النَّارِ
O our Lord, grant us the good of this world, the good of the Hereafter, and save us from the punishment of the fire.
[Surah Al-Baqarah, 2:201]
After Tawaf pray 2 Rakats anywhere behind the Station of Ibrahim (Maqam e Ibrahim) or anywhere in the Haram.
The following is intended to be recited aloud while walking to the location where you will be performing the two Rakats:
وَاتَّخِذُوا مِنْ مَقَامِ إِبْرَاهِيمَ مُصَلًّى
And take the Maqam Ibrahim as a place of Salah.
[Surah al-Baqarah, 2:125]
Recite Surah Al-Kafirun in the first Rakat and Surah Al-Ikhlas in the second Rakat.
Then make dua and drink Zamzam water. After drinking water, recite the following dua:
اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَسْأَلُكَ عِلْمًا نَافِعًا وَ رِزْقًا وَاسِعًا وَ شِفَاءً مِنْ كُلِّ دَاءٍ
