The Umrah pilgrimage is one that is sacred and needs to be treated with as much respect and dedication as the Hajj pilgrimage in the Islamic month of Dhu al-Hijjah. Because of this, it is important to ensure that you are fully prepared for your Umrah trip and to make sure that you haven’t forgotten anything that could be essential.
Unscented Shampoo, Shower Gel, and Dusting Power
You need shampoo and shower gel so that you can properly clean yourself, and then you’ll need the dusting powder to prevent any perspiration. However, the main quality of each of these items is that they must be unscented. Scented products are forbidden on the Umrah – and the Hajj – pilgrimage, so make sure that the products that you are planning to use have no scent.
Grooming essentials are also a standard item to take on your Umrah trip. These include toothbrushes, toothpaste and a hairbrush or comb. Staying hygienic on your Umrah trip is incredibly important, so it is vital to ensure that your hygiene is a top priority.
Travelling Money Pouch
A money pouch is a great item to carry when you are travelling. Even if you don’t spend the money while you are away, it is useful to have on hand in case of an emergency. For example, if you need some extra money for transport, you will have some to cover the extra cost. You can buy yourself a souvenir of your special Umrah pilgrimage so that you can remember it for years to come.
General Clothes and Undergarments
Even though you will be wearing the sacred clothes during the Umrah pilgrimage, you will need to make sure that you have some spare clothes for when you travel to and from the airport, to go to the shop for some items, etc.
An alarm clock is something that you should definitely take with you. Sometimes, if you are travelling from a country that is relatively far away, keeping track of time can be quite difficult. With an alarm clock, you can ensure that you are up and ready for the early morning prayers, as well as performing the important rituals of the Umrah pilgrimage.
Once you have got all the above items, as well as a couple of other essential items such as slippers and possibly some medical prescriptions if required, then you will be well and truly prepared for your Umrah pilgrimage.
