Ritual 148

Five matters must be observed in Umrat-ut-Tamatu’:

1. ihram must be worn at one of the Meqats which will be discussed later;

2. tawaf round the Ka’ba;

3. prayer (salah) after the tawaf;

4. sa’y between Safa and Marwah;

5. taqseer, that is, to remove some hair of the head, beard or moustache. On completion of these five acts, one is out of the state of ihram and all that which is forbidden during ihram becomes lawful.
