Umrah is valid if any of the compulsory rite and action not executed, but need to pay penalty (Dam) and can be considered a sinful act

The Umrah journey from home country will take between 12 days to 14 days including travelling time,  with 4 days stay in Madinah and 6/7 days in Makkah. The average time taken to perform umrah will take 4 to 6 hours depending on the physical capability.

After the first obligatory umrah performed, several voluntary umrah can be undertaken from Makkah through the ‘Miqats’ of Hudaibiyah and Tana’eim. Umrah for our late parents or other relatives can also be undertaken, but the statement of intention need to be accordingly.

Take the opportunities to ‘zairah’ (visit) the various historical sites while in Makkah and Madinah. Further references must be attained through the book of rituals (manasik).
