The Pilgrimage – What After Hajj?
Return from Mina to Makkah Mukarrama on 12th or 13th afternoon. Now your Hajj is complete. According to Hadis, whosoever performed Hajj solely for Allah and did not resort to any lewdness of abuse, he returns from Hajj as innovent and sinless as he was on the day he was born. All your past sins are forgiven and you are like a newly born baby. You are entering into a new phase of life. You should not forget the Benevolence of Allah, Who selected you from among the millions of Muslims and honoured you with the visit of His Holy House, the Abode of Prophets. You should not forget the promises made by you in Arafat to lead a pious life. Now you are will aware of your responsibilities. If yo will commit sins again, it will not only degrade you but also reflect on the whole society. After Hajj you should devote your maximum time to prayers in Makkah Mukarrama.
Nafl Umrah may be performed for your parents, relatives, teachers and offspring, dead or alive. In order to perform Nafl Umrah you have to perform Guls, then taking your Ahram you go to Masjid-e-Ayesha. There you put on the Ahram, offer two raka’at Nafl of Umrah and then come back to Haram Sharif and perform Tawaaf (with Iztibah and Ramal), Saee and Halaq. Make intention for Umrah in the flowing words:
AL-LAA-HUM-MA IN-NEE U-REE-DUL UM-RAH——–FA-YAS-SIR-HAA-LEE WA TA-QAB-BAL-HAA MIN-NEE——- WAA-IN-NEE A-LAI-HAA WA BAA-RIK-LEE FEE-HAA NAVAI-TUL UM-RA-TA WA AH-RAMTU BI-HAA LIL-LAA-HI TA-AA-LAA
O Allah! I have made the intention to perform Umrah, easen it for me and accept it from me and help me (to perform it) and make it full of blessings for me. I make the intention for Umrah and with it I have put on the Ahram for the sake of Allah Ta’ala.
Similarly, Nafl Tawaaf may be performed for them. At least one full recitation of Qur’aan may be completed during this period. Nafl Namaaz may also be offered for yourself. Be particular for five times Namaaz. (Do not forget that one Namaaz offered in Haram is equal to one hundred thousand Namaaz offered elsewhere).
