Make Sure You Know the Rules of Ihram before reaching the House of Allah

Ihram is a sacred state of being that a Muslim must enter to present himself towards Allah swt before they perform the Umrah, as well as the Hajj pilgrimage. With this sacred state comes an array of rules that must be followed, otherwise it can make the pilgrimage redundant.

As such, it is important to make sure that you understand the rules of Ihram fully before you go on your Umrah trip because they are simple rules that people can violate without even knowing.

For example, you aren’t allowed to use scented soaps, so make sure that you pack yourself unscented soaps before you travel. Another rule that people tend to forget is that, if you are a man, you are not allowed to cover your head.

Therefore, even if it is sunny, make sure that you don’t wrap a scarf or towel around your head to protect yourself.

Here you can see how to find an Affordable Umrah Package.


Bring Things to Protect Yourself

While in the state of Ihram, you aren’t allowed to wear any seamed clothing. Which includes any underwear or any other form of protective clothing. Because of this, if you are a male, then it could lead to chafing, whether that is a small or excessive amount.

Therefore, it is important to bring things that can protect you from these types of issues, so things like Vaseline can be fantastic for these situations.
