Du’aa’s To Perform During Umrah

Umrah, which is commonly called the small pilgrimage, can be performed any time of the year. It's said to hold the same value as Hajj but it's not mandatory. It's a great opportunity for Muslims to strengthen their faith, repent for their mistakes and pray for their wants. 

 

Many of you will either have loved ones making Umrah or are lucky to be able to go soon on their own. With that in mind, we've put together an essential list of the du’aa’s to perform during Umrah.

 

Du'aa’ Before Leaving Home:

When you are leaving your temporary residence to perform the duties of Umrah make sure you're perfectly cleaned and have prayed all the obligatory prayers. Then read this dua- 

 

بِسْمِ اللَّهِ تَوَكَّلْتُ عَلَى اللَّهِ لاَ حَوْلَ وَلاَ قُوَّةَ إِلاَّ بِاللَّهِ 

Transliteration:

Bismillahi tawakkaltu alallahi la hawla wala quwwata illa billah

Translation:

“In the name of Allah, I trust in Allah; there is no might and no power but in Allah”

Du’aa’ For Travelling :

In Islam, we've beautiful du'as for every task of our daily life. For traveling, there's one as well. As this is not like any other traveling, you must recite this dua when you are traveling for performing one of the precious tasks of a Muslim's life.

اللهُ أكبَر ، اللهُ أكبَر ، اللهُ أكبَر، سُـبْحانَ الَّذي سَخَّـرَ لَنا هذا وَما كُنّا لَهُ مُقْـرِنين، وَإِنّا إِلى رَبِّنـا لَمُنْقَـلِبون، اللّهُـمَّ إِنّا نَسْـأَلُكَ في سَفَـرِنا هذا البِـرَّ وَالتَّـقْوى، وَمِنَ الْعَمَـلِ ما تَـرْضى، اللّهُـمَّ هَوِّنْ عَلَـينا سَفَرَنا هذا وَاطْوِ عَنّا بُعْـدَه، اللّهُـمَّ أَنْـتَ الصّـاحِبُ في السَّـفَر، وَالْخَلـيفَةُ في الأهـلِ، اللّهُـمَّ إِنّـي أَعـوذُبِكَ مِنْ وَعْـثاءِ السَّـفَر، وَكَآبَةِ الْمَنْـظَر، وَسوءِ الْمُنْـقَلَبِ في المـالِ وَالأَهْـل

Transliteration

Allaahu 'Akbar, Allaahu 'Akbar, Allaahu 'Akbar, Subhaanal-lathee sakhkhara lanaa haathaa wa maa kunnaa lahu muqrineen. Wa 'innaa 'ilaa Rabbinaa lamunqaliboon. 

 

Allaahumma 'innaa nas'alukan fee safarina haathal-birrawattaqwaa, waminal-'amalimaa tardhaa, Allaahumma hawwin 'alaynaa safaranaa haathaa watwi 'annaa bu'dahu, 

 

Allaahumma 'Antas-saahibu fis-safari, walkhaleefatu fil-'ahli, Allaahumma 'innee 'a'oothu bika min wa'thaa'is-safari, wa ka'aabanl-mandhari, wa soo'il-munqalabi fil-maaliwal'ahli.

Translation

Allah is the Greatest. Allah is the Greatest. Allah is the Greatest. Glory is to Him Who has provided this for us though we could never have had it by our efforts. Surely, unto our Lord, we are returning. 

 

O Allah, we ask You on this our journey for goodness and piety, and for works that are pleasing to You. O Allah, lighten this journey for us and make its distance easy for us. 

 

O Allah, You are our Companion on the road and the One in Whose care we leave our family. O Allah, I seek refuge in You from this journey's hardships, and from the wicked sights in store and from finding our family and property in misfortune upon returning.

Du’aa’ for Before Passing Miqat:

Before entering the designated Miqat, the pilgrim must reach this condition where his body is in a sacred state referred as Ihram. Then he must wear the specified attire and must make the goal in his mind. After you arrive at the Mīqāt or ahead of it assume the Ihram and recite:

لَـبَّـيْكَ ٱللّـهُـمَّ بِعُمْرَة

Transliteration

Labbayk Allahumma bi-Umrah.

Translation

O Allah, here I am to perform Umrah.



*If you are in fear of not completing the Umrah, then Recite:

اللَّهُمَّ مَحِلِّيْ حَيْثُ حَبَسْتَنِي

Transliteration:

Allahumma mahillee haithu habastani.

Translation:

O Allāh! my place is wherever You prevent me

 

Du'aa’ When Facing Qiblah:

We all know Allah is everywhere, but it's known to us as well that in Masjid-al-Haram the home of our lord exists. Hence we pray aiming to the west or Qiblah. When you're standing, facing the Qiblah at that moment recite:

 

اللَّهُمَّ هَذِهِ عُمْرَةٌ لاَ رِيَاءَ فِيْهَا وَلاَ سُمْعَة

Transliteration:

Allāhumma hādhihi ‘Umrah , lā riyā’a feehā wa lā sum'ah. 

Translation:

O Allāh this is an ‘Umrah, there being no showing-off in it nor seeking repute

Du’aa’ for Talbiya :

The Talbiyah is a sacramental prayer spoken by pilgrims during Hajj or Umrah after they have made the intention to enter Ihram. Often it is recited throughout the entire pilgrimage. Utter this Talbiyyah loud and often through to the Holy Mosque:

 

لَبَّيْكَ اللَّهُمَّ لَبَّيْكَ، لَبَّيْكَ لَا شَرِيكَ لَكَ لَبَّيْكَ، انَّالْحَمْدَ، وَالنِّعْمَةَ، لَكَ وَالْمُلْكَ، لا شَرِيكَ لَكَ

Labbayk Allaahumma labbayk, labbayk laa shareeka laka labbayk, 'innal-hamda, wanni'mata, laka walmulk, laa shareeka laka.

Ever at Your service, O Allah, every at Your service. Ever at Your Service, You have no partner, ever at Your service. Verily all praise, blessings and dominions are Yours. You have no partner.

 

*Also you need to recite:

لَـبَّـيْكَ إلَـهَ الْحَقّ

Transliteration:

Labbaika ilāhal haqq.

Translation:

Here I am, O God of Truth.

Du’aa’ for Tawaf:

There's no particular dua for tawaf but read as much as supplication praising Allah. When you enter the Masjid Al-Harām, step your right foot first and recite:

 

للَّهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ وَ سَلِّم، اللَّهُمَّ افْتَحْ لِي أبْوَابَ رَحْمَتِك 

 

Transliteration:

Allāhumma salli `alā Muhammadin wa sallim Allāhummaaftah-lee abwāba rahmatika.

 

Translation:

O Allāh, send prayers and peace upon Muhammad. O Allaah, open the doors of your mercy for me.

Recite at Al-Hajr Al-Aswad (The Black Stone):

You should start at the Black Stone. Always remember the right shoulder of men must be exposed by placing the Ihrām. Touch the Black Stone when starting each Tawāf circuit and if you can't, make a sign towards it with your right hand, and say:

 

اللَّه أكْبَر

Transliteration:

Allāhu akbar.

Translation:

"Allāh is the Greatest"

Recite from The Yamani Corner of The Black Stone :

Make seven Ka'bah Circuits. For the first three circuits men will walk around the Ka'bah quickly, then launch the fourth circuit at a regular walking speed. Recite at every circuit, between the Yemeni Corner and the Black Stone:

 

رَبَّنَا آتِنَا فِىْ الدُّنْيَا حَسَنَةً وَفِىْ الآخِرَةِ حَسَنَةً وَّقِنَا عَذَابَ النَّارِ

Transliteration:

Du’aa’ for Sa’ee:

Begin your Sa'ee (the walk) at Safā. At the foot of Safā recite this (only once):

 

إنَّ الصَّفَا وَالْمَرْوَةَ مِنْ شَعَآئِرِ اللَّهِ فَمَنْ حَجَّ الْبَيْتَ أوِ اعْتَمَرَ فَلاَ جُنَاحَ عَلَيْهِ

أنْ يَطَّوَّفَ بِهِمَا وَمَنْ تَطَوَّعَ خَيْراً فَإنَّ اللَّهَ شَاكِرٌ عَلِيْم ‐ نَبْدَأ

بِمَا بَدَأ اللَّهُ بِهِ

Transliteration:

Innas-Safā wal-Marwata min sha’ā’ irillāh faman hajjal- baita auwi’ tamara falā junāha ‘alaihi an yattawwafa

bihimā wa man tatawwa’a khairan fa innallāha shākirun ‘aleem. Nabda’u bimā bada’ Allāhu bihi. 

Translation:

Verily! As-Safā and Al-Marwah are from the signs of Allāh. So it is not a sin for him who performs Hajj or ‘Umrah of the House to perform the walk between them. And whoever does good voluntarily, then verily, Allāh is All-Recogniser, All- Knower.

Recite At The Tops Of Safa And Marwah:

Each time on the hill of Safā, face the Ka’bah and recite 3 times with your hands raised: 

 

اللَّهُ أكْبَرُ، اللَّهُ أكْبَرُ، اللَّهُ أكْبَرُ لاَ إلَهَ إلاَّ اللَّهُ وَحْدَهُ لاَ شَرِيْكَ لَهُ،

لَهُ الْمُلْكُ وَ لَهُ الْحَمْدُ يُحْيِي وَ يُمِيْتُ وَ هُوَ عَلَىكُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيْر؛

لاَ إلَهَ إلاَّ اللَّهُ وَحْدَهُ لاَ شَرِيْكَ لَه، أنْجَزَ وَعْدَهُ وَ نَصَرَ عَبْدَهُ وَ

هَزَمَ الأحْزَابَ وَ حْدَهُ

Transliteration:

Allāhu Akbar, Allāhu Akbar, Allāhu Akbar. Lā ilāha illallāh, wahdahu lā syarikalah, lahul mulk, wa lahul-hamd, yuhyi wa yumit, wa huwa ‘alā kulli shay’in qadeer. Lā ilāha illallāh wahdahu lā syarikalah, anjaza wahdahu, wa nasara ‘abdahu, wa hazamal ahzāba wahdah. 

Translation:

Allāh is the Greatest, Allāh is the Greatest, Allāh is the Greatest. There

is none worthy of worship except Allāh alone, without a partner. To Him belongs all sovereignty and all praise. He alone gives life and causes death, and He is All-Powerful over everything. There is none worthy of worship except Allāh alone, without a partner. He has fulfilled His promise, aided His slave and He alone has defeated the confederates.

 

*After the Sa'ee men are ordered to shave or trim their hair & women are ordered to cut their hair by the size of a finger tip.
