There are many preferred acts of ‘Umrah. Amongst the most important of them
are: trimming the nails, performing Ghusl, and perfuming the body BEFORE
Ihram. As for after Ihram, it is preferred to raise the voice in Talbiya (for men),
kissing the Black Stone as long as one does not harm himself or others in doing
so, Idtiba’(uncovering a man’s right shoulder during Tawaf), Ramal (power
walk/light jog during the first three rounds of Tawaf), utilize one’s time to do
Dhikr, make Dua’, connect with Allah (SWT), and to pray two Rak’at after Tawaf
behind Maqam Ibrahim as an act of Sunnah if that is feasible. It is also preferred
to walk briskly (without exceeding the pace of a light jog) in Sa’i in the area that is
outlined by the green lights and to occupy himself with Dhikr, Tasbeeh, sending
Praise upon Allah (SWT between Safa and Marwa.
