Etiquette Of The Umrah2Hajj appeases the fifth and last pillar of Islam. Every Muslim who is healthy and sane and who can afford it must undertake the pilgrimage to Makkah at least once in his or her lifetime.

The Almighty says: The Hajj is the well-known months. So whosoever intends to perform Hajj therein (by assuming Ahram), then he should not have sexual relations, nor commit sin, nor dispute unjustly during the Hajj. And whatever good you do, (be sure) Allah knows it. And take a provision (with you) for the journey, but the best provision is At-Taqwa. So fear Me, O men of understanding! (Al-Baqarah 197)

The Talbiyah is deemed to be the heart of the Umrah. When the Muslim pronounces the Talbiyah, it is like making the calls to the Allah and reporting for his presence in His Honor. Making more and more supplications before Allah is highly appreciated during the Umrah and these supplications and all the acts of worship are accepted immediately, because pilgrim is in a state of worship from the moment he enters Ahram until he exits it.

For the Muslims, the pilgrim and others should regularly monitor the things that the Almighty has ordained for him, such as praying in congregation on time, and enjoining what is good and forbidding what is evil.

The pilgrim should exert to benefit the Muslims and treat them kindly by guiding, helping when needed, and being generous towards the weak, such as in crowded places. Being compassion to the people brings mercy from the Creator, for Allah shows mercy to those of His slaves who are merciful.
