    Essential Items for Umrah - Part 1

    In the Islamic month of Dhu al-Hijjah, the sacred Umrah pilgrimage takes place. Treating it with extreme respect and dedication is important, and you need to ensure that you are prepared for the trip and the pilgrimage itself.



    Clothing for the Trip

    During the Umrah, you will need enough clothing for the trip and for during the pilgrimage, to ensure that you feel comfortable. It’s easy to underestimate how much clothing you will need but don’t forget that the combination of the warm weather and the walking will make you sweat a lot. You might find that you underpacked, and washing your clothing every day might not be feasible.

    Being prepared with a few extra items is essential, as you might need to change clothes twice daily due to the heat.


    Unscented Shampoo

    As scented products aren’t permitted on either the Umrah or the Hajj pilgrimage, you will need unscented shampoo, soap, and shower gel. Keeping clean is important, especially during the Umrah. Choose reliable, unscented products you know will be easy to carry and to use.

    The heat will make you sweat, and dusting powder will help to keep the perspiration away. Stock up on essentials before leaving to make sure you don’t run out during the Umrah. Feeling at peace is vital, and guaranteeing that all small details are taken care of will ensure this.

    Hygienic Items

    Taking care of your hygiene is very important and, during the Umrah pilgrimage, having respect and making sure to have your hygiene as a top priority is vital. Don’t forget to pack a comb or a hairbrush, toothpaste and a toothbrush, and other items that ensure you properly take care of your hygiene.


    Other Essentials

    The Umrah pilgrimage is a very important time in your life, and you might want to buy a souvenir of the journey to keep with you forever. Travelling with a money belt or pouch will give you the necessary space for emergency money.

    And remember to pack an alarm clock to ensure you are on time for the morning prayers and rituals. The Umrah pilgrimage deserves its due respect, and you don’t want to miss any prayers.
