‘Umrah is a minor Hajj and  al-Mu‘ttamer assumes Ihram from the Miqat, performs the Tawaf of al-‘Umrah then performs Sa‘ee and releases his state of Ihram either by hair shaving or hair shortening.

Hazarat Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) narrated that Allah’s Messenger (peace be upon him) said: “The ‘Umrah to the following ‘Umrah is an atonement for what is between them, and the accepted Hajj is not rewarded except by paradise”.

Hazarat Jaber (May Allah be pleased with him)narrated that Allah’s Messenger (peace be upon him) said: “The pilgrims and those performing ‘Umrah are the delegation of Allah, when they beseech Him He will grant them their quest, and when they seek His forgiveness, He will forgive them”.

He who wants to perform another ‘Umrah he should go out to Al-Tan‘eem (the Mosque of lady ‘Aisha may Allah be pleased with her) for Ihram then return to Makkah to perform Tawaf and Sa‘y.
