It is possible to do all of the Umrah rites in a week if you travel with Umrah packages from United Kingdom. Most Muslims agree that a week is the minimum amount of time needed to complete the Umrah. Umrah Can also be done in few hours but Muslims book at least three or four nights Umrah Packages to perform Umrah in a convenient manner.
In addition to the required Umrah rites, you’ll have a full week to see the country and partake in various forms of worship throughout your Umrah pilgrimage.
Your typical day during a weeklong Umrah trip will look like this.
Day 1; Arrival in Mecca.
If you’re flying into Jeddah,
- Stop in Makkah city, where you can catch a taxi or other local transportation.
- Check into the hotel or other lodgings you’ve reserved in Makkah.
- Reach the boundary of Meeqat, stop for some relaxation and enter the spiritual condition of Ihram.
- Stop and think about it for a while.
- Make your Niyyah for Umrah and put on your Ihram garments in preparation for the upcoming religious rites.
Day 2; Tawaf and Sa’i rituals.
- Start your tawaf and Sayee in the Grand Mosque of Makkah (Masjid-al-Haram), the holiest site in Islam.
- The tawaf rituals require a circumambulation of the Holy Kaabah seven times, performed counterclockwise. Remember that the corner of Hajar-al-Aswad, also known as the Black Stone, marks the beginning and finish of each Tawaf circuit.
- Perform the Sayee after the Tawaf ceremony has been completed. Seven times around the hills of Safa and Marwa, symbolizing Hajar’s journey in quest of water. In such a way that the first round heads from Safah to Marwah and the seventh round returns to Safah again at its conclusion.
Pilgrims should get their hair cut (for women) or shaved (for men) after completing Sayee rites. Halq and Taqsir are two names for it. After this, the Umrah pilgrimage is complete, and one can renounce the Ihram state.
