Basic Umrah Duas
Umrah Duas rights consist of the first Tawaaf of circumambulation around the Kaabah, Sai’y between Safa and Marwa hills, standing vigil on the plains of Mount Arafat, then stopping at Muzdalifa to accumulate pebbles and performing Ramay Al-Jamarat at Mina.
These reenactments recommend that to understand the Umrah pilgrims must supplant technicality with imagination. Some may perform the rights mechanically yet the very nature of the rituals seeks to shake the pilgrims out of their indifference and help them conceptualize a period and reality other than their own. The rights associate Muslims to a primordial monotheism and assist them to remember their agreement with their Lord: that they will venerate and obey Him. The message is evident- Islam is and always has been. At its core, it won’t change!
