About this episode

Shaykh Yasir Qadhi delivers an amazing lecture on the Fiqhs of Umrah.

What is Umrah? The explanation given is a beautiful one. Umrah gets rid of sins and poverty just like a furnace gets rid of impurity from iron.  Next, the Shaykh discusses the rewards and benefits of Umrah, followed by the Fiqh rulings and most common issues pertaining to Umrah to the house of Allah.  

The Prophet ﷺ performed four Umrahs in his lifetime - An Umrah during Dhul-Qa'dah; the Umrah of Al-Hudaibiyah, an Umrah with his Hajj, and an Umrah from Al-Ji'ranah when he divided up the war spoils of Hunain.

Benefits of Umrah:

  • Expiation of sins
  • Eradication of poverty and attainment of wealth in your life.
  • Jihad of weak people such as elderly and women.
  • Mutamir are the guests of Allah - if they ask, then Allah will give them.
  • Increase the acceptance of Dua

Basics of the Fiqh of Umrah:

  • Arkan of Umrah - Ihram, Tawaf, Saee
  • Wajibat of Umrah - entering into Ihram at Meeqat, shaving or trimming of the hair.
  • Sunnah of Umrah

What is the Meeqat? What is Ihram from a Fiqhi perspective? The concept of Talbiyah is also pondered upon. It should be said incessantly when in Ihram until one arrives at the Bait al Haram.

What should not be done in Ihram?

  • No shaving or cutting hair
  • No cutting nails
  • No perfume
  • No stitched garments for men
  • No garment covering head for men and no wearing Niqab and gloves for women
  • No acts of intimacy

What is Tawaf and Saee? Shaykh Yasir Qadhi answers explicitly and also some Hadiths are shared relating to Zamzam. Zamzam is drunk between Tawaf and Saee.

Can we do multiple Umrahs? Various positions of Imams are shared and we get a clear opinion on the same.
