The ancient house (al-bayt al-ateeq) 

All praise is due to Allah, Lord of the worlds, and blessings and peace be upon our Prophet and upon his followers and companions 

The honored Kabah is called “the Ancient House”. 

It is the focus of Muslim hearts in every corner of the globe.

Toward it are directed their faces and hearts, humbly reverent in prayer to Allah alone, five times a day Muslims have traveled to the Ancient House from every part of the earth to perform their religious rites and perform tawaf around the Ka’bah since the time it was built by Prophet Ibrahim (peace be upon him)

to be the first house for the worship of Allah – where Allah would be worshipped according to guidance and true vision with a pure belief free from superstition and erroneous concepts 

Allah, the Exalted, said: ” Indeed, the first house [of worship] established for mankind was that at Bakkah [i.e., Makkah), – blessed and a guidance for the worlds In it are clear signs (as) Maqam Ibrahim

And whoever enters it shall be safe And (due) to Allah from the people is a pilgrimage (Hajj) to the House – for whoever is able to find thereto a way But whoever disbelieves by refusal] – then indeed, Allah is free from need of the worlds” 


1. The pilgrim should intend his/her Hajj and Umrah for the approval of Allah, seeking nearness to Him, and not for worldly reasons, pride or position, or obtaining a title or reputation. 

2. It is desirable for the traveler to first write his will and state what he owes and what is owed to him. He should return any trusts in his possession to their owners or else obtain their permission to retain them, for our lives are in the Hand of Allah. 

3. One should repent from sins and disobedience to Allah, regretting what was past and determining not to return to such sins again. 

4. He must return any property taken unjustly if he had done so, and compensate people for wrongs done to them. If unable, he must ask them for their forgiveness

6. One should avoid all kinds of wrongdoing. He should not harm anyone by his tongue or his hand. He should not push and crowd other pilgrims in a way that will harm them.

He should not lie or say things about Allah of which he has no knowledge 

7. The pilgrim should learn and understand the rulings pertaining to Hajj and Umrah, 

8. The traveler should be attentive to all his duties, the greatest of which is prayer at its proper time in congregation.

He should increase his good deeds such as reciting the Qur’an, remembering and mentioning Allah, supplication, kindness to people through word and deed, helping those in need, giving sadaqah to the poor, ordering what is right and forbidding what is wrong. 

9. It is recommended that the traveler do his best to choose righteous companions. 

10. The traveler should have good morals and manners with people, including patience and forgiveness, gentleness and kindness, forbearance, modesty, generosity, justice, mercy, trustworthiness, truthfulness, loyalty, piety, etc. 

11. It is desirable that the traveler advise his family to be conscious of 

Allah, for that is what Allah has instructed the former and later peoples

Ihram is the first of the rites of Hajj and Umrah 

It means the intention (niyyah) to enter the state of consecration for Hajj or Umrah The time for performance of Umrah is any time throughout the year. The time for Hajj is during the Hajj months, which are: 

Shawwal, Dhul-Qa dah and the first ten days of Dhul-Hijjah. 

“Labbayk for Umrah”, if he intends only Umrah 

The duties of Hajj and Umrah begin with ihram at the meeqat (a point some distance from Makkah beyond which a pilgrim may not pass without ihram – When someone intending Hajj or Umrah reaches the meeqat on land by car or other transport, he should make ghusl (a complete bath) and use scent if it is easy for him, but there is no sin upon him if he does not bathe.

Then he wears two clean white ihram garments – one wrapped around his waist anc the other over his shoulders. There is no particular dress for a woman in ihram, but she wears whatever clothing adequately covers her body of any color, as long as it is not conspicuously decorative. 

“Labbayk for Umrah 

with release until Haj”, if he intends Hajj al-Tamattu* 

Then, he/she makes the intention of ihram for Umrah or Hajj, saying: 

“Labbayk for Umrah and Hajj”. 

if he intends Hajj al-Qiran 

With these words he has begun the talbiyah, announcing that he is now in the state of ihram, When the pilgrim comes by sea or by air, it has become customary for the captain or a crew member to announce approach to the meeqat sa that the pilgrims among the passengers can prepare themselves for ihram

Then when they reach the meegat, they begin the Hajj or Umrah It is allowable for the pilgrim to put on his ihram garments at home in his own country and begin the rites of Hajj or Umrah in the ship or plane with pronunciation of the talbiyah upon reaching the meeqat 

Men recite the talbiyah in a loud voice, and women quietly to themselves.
