What and When to Supplicate with whilst Performing Umrah

Compiled & Translated


Abbas Abu Yahya

1 – Making the Intention for Umrah:

لبيك اللهم بعمرة

Labbayk Allaahumma Umrah


2 – Saying the Talbeeyah:

Jabir -Radi Allaahu anhu- said:

The Messenger of Allaah sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam raised his voice with Tawheed: :

لَبَّيْكَ اللَّهُمَّ  لَبَّيْكَ،لَبَّيْكَ لاشَرِيكَ لَكَ لَبَّيْكَ، إِنَّ الْحَمْدَوَالنّعْمَةَ لَكَ وَالْمُلْكَ لاشَرِيكَ  لَكَ

 Labbaykallaahumma labbaika, labbaika laa shareeka laka labbaika-innal hamda wan ni’mata laka wal mulka-la shareeka lak

Here I am O Allaah, here I am, You have no partner, here I am, Verily all praise is for You, and every bounty is from You, and all dominion is Yours – You have no partner. [1]


3 – Making Dua’ When Seeing the Ka’abah

Shaykh Albaani said:

‘if one of you sees the Ka’abah he can raise his hands – due to this being established from Ibn ‘Abbas -Radi Allaahu anhu, but it is not established from the Prophet sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallamthat he made a specific Dua’ here – and he can make Dua’ with whatever is easy for him, and if he makes Dua’ with what Umar -Radi Allaahu anhu- did then that is good due to it being established from Umar -Radi Allaahu anhu:

اللَّهُمَّ أَنْتَ السَّلَامُ وَمِنْك السَّلَامُ فَحَيِّنَا رَبَّنَا بِالسَّلَامِ

‘Allaahumma Anta as-Sallaam, wa Minkka as-Sallam fahhay-yina Rabbana bis-Sallam’

‘O Allaah You are as-Sallam, and from You is peace and security, so grant us life O our Lord with peace and security.’ 2


4 – When beginning the Tawaf at the Hajr al-Aswad [The Black Stone]

Shaykh Albaani said:

‘It is the Sunnah to say Takbeer [Say: Allaahu Akbar (Allaah is the greatest)] at the Hajr al-Aswad on every circuit due to the hadeeth of Ibn Abbas

-Radi Allaahu anhu- who said: the Prophet sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam

made Tawaf of the House upon his camel, and every time he came to the Hajr al-Aswad corner, he would indicate to it with what he had with him in his hand and say Takbeer.

As for saying ‘Bismillaah’ (In the Name of Allaah), then it is authentic from Ibn Umar that he would point to the stone and say;

بسم الله والله أكبر

‘Bismillaah wa Allaahu Akbar’. 3


5 – The Dua’ between the Yemeni Corner & the Black Stone

From Abdullaah bin as-Saib -Radi Allaahu anhu- who said: I heard the Messenger of Allaah sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallamsay: between the two corners [the Yemeni corner & the black stone]:

 رَبَّنَا آتِنَا فِي الدُّنْيَا حَسَنَةً وَفِي الْآخِرَةِ حَسَنَةً وَقِنَا عَذَابَ النَّارِ

<<Our Lord! Give us in this world that which is good and in the Hereafter that which is good, and save us from the torment of the Fire!>> 4

6 – The Dua’ Upon Mount Safa & Marwa

From Jabir -Radi Allaahu anhu- who said: Then the Prophet sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam went out to Safa and when he came close to Safa he recited:


إِنَّ الصَّفَا وَالْمَرْوَةَ مِنْ شَعَائِرِ الله فَمَنْ حَجَّ الْبَيْتَ أَوِ اعْتَمَرَ فَلا جُنَاحَ عَلَيْهِ أَنْ يَطَّوَّفَ بِهِمَا وَمَنْ تَطَوَّعَ خَيْرًا فَإِنَّ الله شَاكِرٌ عَلِيمٌ


<<Verily! As-Safa and Al-Marwah  are of the Symbols of Allaah. So it is not a sin on him who perform Hajj or ‘Umrah of the House (the Ka’bah at Makkah) to perform the going between them (As-Safa and Al-Marwah). And whoever does good voluntarily, then verily, Allaah is All-Recogniser, All-Knower.>>

نَبْدَأُ بِمَا بَدَأَ اللَّهُ بِهِ

Nabda Bima Bada Allaahu Bihi, so he sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam began at Safa and climbed it until he could see the Ka’abah, and he faced the Qiblah [the Ka’abah], and he singled out Allaah and said the Takbeer three times الله أكبر الله أكبر الله أكبر

 [Allaahu Akbar, Allaahu Akbar, Allaahu Akbar]

Then he sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallamwould say

لَا إلَهَ إلَّا الله وَحْدَهُ لَا شَرِيكَ لَهُ لَهُ الْمُلْكُ ، وَلَهُ الْحَمْدُ وَهُوَ عَلَى كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيرٌ ، لَا إلَهَ إلَّا الله أَنْجَزَ وَعْدَهُ وَنَصَرَ عَبْدَهُ وَهَزَمَ الْأَحْزَابَ وَحْدَهُ

 ‘There is none worthy of worship in truth except Allaah Alone, He has no partners, to Him belongs the Dominion and for Him is all praise, and He is capable of all things. There is none worthy of worship in truth except Allaah, He kept His promise, and aided His slave, and He Alone defeated all the clans of (non-believers).’

La ilaha ‘illa Allaahu wahdahu la shareeka lahu, lahul mulku wa lahul hamdu wa huwa ala kulli shayin qadeer, La ilaha ‘illa Allaah Anjaza Waaddahu, wa nasra ‘abdahu wa Hazama al-Ahzaab Wahaddahu’

He sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallamwould say this three times and would make Dua’ between saying this. Then he sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallamwould do the same thing on Marwa as he did on Safa.’ 5


7 – The Dua’ during the Sa’ee between Safa & Marwa

Shaykh Albaani said:

‘And if he makes Dua’ in the Sa’ee by saying:

رَبِّ اغْفِرْ وَارْحَمْ ، إِنَّكَ أَنْتَ الأَعَزُّ الأَكْرَمُ

‘Rabb Ighfir warrham, innaka Anta al-‘Aa’azz al-Akram.’

‘O Lord forgive me and have mercy on me, Indeed You are the Most Honourable and the Most Generous.’

Then this is permissible to say due to it being established from a number of the Salaf.’ 6
