Photographer's Note

Allah Almighty says:
قل إن كنتم تحبون الله فاتبعوني يحببكم الله ويغفر لكن ذنوبكم Say if you love Allah, follow me, Allah will love you and forgive you your sins. (3:31) The best type of Hajj is the Tamattu' type. In Tamattu' Hajj the Pilgrim does not bring sacrificial animals with him. The Messenger of Allah (صلى الله عليه وسلم) has commanded his companions to do that. Tamattu' Hajj is to perform Umrah in the months of Hajj and to disengage from Umrah and then again enter into the state of Ihram for Hajj in the same year.

UMRAH
1- If you want to perform Umrah, first perform ghusl (total wash), if possible, as you do for Janabah. Next put on the Ihram cloths (Izar & Rida). A female Muslim can wear any decent clothes that does not expose her body and beauty. Then Pronounce the Talbiyah (i.e Labbaiyk which means: I am ready to obey and respond to your call).
2- When you reach Makkah, do Tawaf of the Ka`bah seven times for Umrah starting from ِِAl-Hajar Al-Aswad (Black stone) and finishing by it. Then perform two raka'hs behind Muqam Ibraheem, if it is possible, or any place (behind it).
3- After the performance of two raka'hs, go to Safa to perform Sa'i between Safa and Marwah seven times commencing from Safa and ending at Marwah.
4- After completion of Sa'i you may shorten your hair. By this, your Umrah is complete and you may disengage from Ihram clothes and put on normal clothes.
