Umrah Checklists

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Assalamu Alaikum.

Going for Umrah and all confused about what you need to do?

It happens. To absolutely everyone.

So, what can you do?

Well, you could buy a nice book on Umrah that details all the steps that you need to take.

One book that I would advise is “The Ultimate Guide to Umrah” (this one) by Abu Muneer Ismail Davids who authored “Getting the Best out of Hajj”.

The two books have similar contents but the former is solely geared towards Umrah. It also has two additional chapters (one on Umrah in Ramadan and the other one on visiting Madinah).

Is the book online? Well, parts of it can be found on Google Books.

One of the good aspects of the book is the checklists that it provides at the end. These are really useful for those who have never been to Umrah (and Hajj as well).

For those of you who are unable to get the book, I’ve scanned the checklists for you.

You may download them here.

Please excuse my terrible scanning skills. I hope that the checklists will be of some benefit though, insha-Allah.

Lecture Series: Getting the Best out of Hajj

Assalamu Alaikum.

If you’re in a hurry to learn about Hajj and you’re running out of time, I would highly advise you to listen to the following series, even if you listen to nothing else.

There are loads of practical tips here. The brother has also written the following two books:

1) Getting the Best out of Al-Hajj (It looks like this.)

2) The Ultimate Guide to Umrah (It looks like this. A bit of it is available on Google Books.)

Both of them can be purchased from Dasrussalam.

If you’re going for Hajj, you NEED to get this book.  If you are unable to find it, then at least try to get your hands on the Umrah book.

What if you can’t get your hands on either of them? Well then, just try to stick to the seminar below. (You might need to watch it more than once.)
