Duas for Hajj and Umrah


“In the name of Allaah.

I rely on Allaah. There is no power or might except from Allaah.”



“Allah is Greatest. Allaah is the Greatest. Allaah is the Greatest. All Praise is due to Allaah. Glory unto Him who controlled this for us whilst we were unable to control it. Surely our return is our Rabb.”


“O Allaah, this is the Haram- the Sacred precinct- of Your Nabi, thus make it a protection for me from the fire-of Jahanam and a safety from chastisement and harmful reckoning”


“O My Rabb, let my entry be the Gate of Truth and likewise my exit by the Gate of Truth, and grant me from Your Presence a helping power .O Allaah. open for me the doors of Your Mercy and grant me the honour of visiting Your Rasul as You granted it to Your saints and to Your obedient folk, and forgive my sins , and shower Your Mercy on me, O You best of all beseeched.”

“Make me disdainful towards unlawfulness through Your lawfulness and towards Your disobedience through Your obedience and towards whatever is there besides You through Your grace , and enlighten my heart and my grave. O Allaah I ask You for every good, the immediately approaching good and the delayed one whatever is in my knowledge and whatever I do not know. I beseech Your protection against all evils whatever is in my knowledge and whatever I do not know. O Allaah confer on me most of Your subsistence at the time of my old age near the end of my life; render the end of my age as the best of my life and the last act of mine as the best of all my actions and make the day of my meeting with You as the best of all my days.”


On entering the Masjid, read this Duaa:

“Oh my Rabb, forgive my sins, and open for me the doors of Your mercy.”


In the name of Allaah, O Allaah Shower Your Blessings on Muhammad. O Allaah I seek Your Boons (favours).


Salaam on you Yaa Rasulullaah. Salaam on you who is most superior of all Allaah’s Creation. Salaam on you O friend of Allaah. Salaam on you O chosen servant of Allaah. Durood and Salaam on you, O Allaah’s Nabi. Durood and Salaam on you O Allaah’s beloved. Durood and Salaam on you O interceder of the sinful one’s.Durood and Salaam on you, the one who Allaah has sent as a mercy for the entire Universe.

Salaat and Salaam on you the chief ( head ) of the Rasuls and Imaam of the pious and guide

of those whose hands and face will be illuminated on the Day of Qiyaaamah. Salaat and Salaam on you O head of all mankind. Salaat and Salaam on you O Last of all the Nabis. Salaat and Salaam on you O giver of glad tidings to the doer of good. Salaat and Salaam on all the Ambiyaaa and Rasuls and on all the closest ( nearest ) to Allaah ( i.e. angels ).Salaam on you and on your family members and household, and on the mothers of the Faithful and on all the Sahaabah ( companions ),and on all Allaah’s pious servants. Salaam on you O Nabi and Allaah’s Mercy and Blessings. O Rasulullaah , I testify that you are definitely Allaah’s servant and Rasul, and I testify that you definitely conveyed Allaah’s message completely and fulfilled the right of trust and advised the Ummat with complete good ( for their proper welfare ),and removed the darkness ( of Kufr ) and demolished the deception of Falsehood, and made Jihaad in Allaah’s path in the manner it ought to be done, and worshipped your Rabb until your demise”.

May Allaah, on behalf of us and our parents and the Millat ( nation ) of Islaam Grant you the best reward. I seek ( ask ) for you from Allaah Ta’aala the greatest of intercession and superiority and the high status ( Maqaam ) of Mahmood, and the Haudh-e-Kawther ( Pond ) on which your Ummat will descend, and for intercession on the Day of Testification. And we ask Allaah Ta’aala that He Forgives the sins of our forefathers and mothers and our near kith and kin. Most definitely He accepts prayers and is the Most Merciful of those who show Mercy.”


“O Rasul of Allaah! I beseech You Your intercession and I entreat Allaah through Your medium to (let me) die as a Muslim upon the Your Millat and Your Sunnat.”


If someone requested that you convey salaams on their behalf, then, taking the name of the person, say:

Instead of the word “Fulaan” say the name of the person on whose behalf you are presenting the Salaam.

When presenting salaams on behalf of many people, then say: “Salaam on you Allaah’s Rasul from me and from the one who has requested me to convey Salaams to you.”


After presenting Salaams to Nabi (S.A.W.),move two steps to the right and convey Salaams on the Nabi’s companion in the cave, the Truthful Friend and the First Khaliph, Hadhrat Abu Bakr Siddique (R.A.) with the following words:

“Salaam on you O our head ( chief, leader ) Abu Bakr(R.A.).Salaam on you O Rightful Khalif of Rasulullaah (S.A.W.),the second of the two who hid in the cave. Salaam on you O one who spent all his wealth for the sacrifice of Deen and for the love of Allaah and His Rasul (S.A.W.),until you were left with only one Jubbah ( garment ).May Allaah be pleased with you, and in the best way, and may Jannah be your resting place and your final abode. Salaam on you O first Khalif of Rasulullaah (S.A.W.) and crown of the Ulemaa, and father-in-law of the chosen Nabi and Allaah Ta’aalas Mercy and Blessings be on you.”

After sending Salaams to Hadhrat Abu Bakr (R.A.), move another two steps to the right and start presenting Salaams to Hadhrat Umar Farooq (R.A.).


On completing the Salaam, facing the Qibla, near the wall, pray to Allaah and seek whatever is closest to your heart with humility and lamentation.


“Peace be on you O Ameerul Mumineen, Peace be on you O Imaam of the Muslims, Peace be on you O Uthman, son of Affan, Peace be on you and the Blessing and Mercy of Allaah.”


Near Masjid-e-Nabawi, lies the famous graveyard of Madinah Munawwarah called Jannatul Baqee. Visit this place also and at the time of visiting, present Salaam in this manner:

“Salaam on those staying here who are Mo’mins and Muslims and Allaah’s Mercy be on those proceeding (us) and coming after (us) and if Allaah wills -Inshaa-Allaah we also will be definitely meeting you”.


Peace be on our Guide Hamzah, Peace be on you O Uncle of the Rasul of Allaah (Sallahu alahi wasllaam). Peace be on you O Lion of Allaah and Lion of His Rasul (Sallahu alahi wasllaam).

Peace be on you O Martyrs. O Blessed Ones. O Noble Ones. O People of Truth and Faithfulness. Peace be on you O Strivers in the path of Allaah. Peace be on you in return for that which you preserved. How excellent is (your) final abode. Peace be on all of you. O Martyrs of Uhud and Allaah’s Mercy and His Blessing (be on you).


It is praiseworthy to go Masjid-e-Quba on Saturday or any other day and to perform Salaat in it. At the end of whatever supplication you may read there, you should say:

O Responder of those who cry for succour, O the Helper of those who implore for help. O the Remover of the anxiety of those who are in anxiety, O the Responder to the call of those who are in affliction, bless Muhammad(Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) and his family, and remove any anxiety and grief as You removed the grief and anxiety of Your Rasul (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) at this place. [Accept my prayer], O Compassionate, O Generous!, O Doer of immense good and beneficence. O Bestower of perpetual favour, O the Most Merciful of those who show mercy. May Allaah bless and greet our Guide Muhammad(Sallallahu alayhi wasallam), his family and his companions perpetually and eternally. [Accept our prayer], O the Rabb of all the worlds, Aameen.


Hajj Only

If one intends for Hajj alone then say:

“Yaa Allaah ,I intend for Hajj, You make it easy for me and accept it.”

Umrah Only

If one intends for Umrah only then say:

“Yaa Allaah, I intend for Umrah, You make it easy for me and accept it.”


Hajj and Umrah

Sometimes the intention for Hajj and Umrah is made together. This is called Qiraan. The intention is:

“Yaa Allaah, I intend for Hajj and Umrah, You make both easy for me and accept it.”



After intention, say the words of the Talbiyaah. The Masnoon words of the Talbiyaah are:

“I am present, Oh Allaah, I am present. You have no partner, I am present. Definitely all Praise and Grace are Yours. The entire Universe is Yours, You have no partner.” Whenever reciting Talbiyaah, do so three times. Recite Durood Shareef after that. Then recite this Duaa:

“Yaa Allaah, I ask of You, Your Pleasure and Jannah, and through Your Mercy I seek (desire) protection from the punishment of the fire.”



It is Mustahab to enter Makkah from the cemetery of Makkah called Al Mualla. If it is possible to do so easily, or else one may enter from any side. It is also Masnoon to make ghusl before entry into Makkah. These days it is difficult due to the restrictions and the crowds. If it is possible to make ghusl easily then do so. When Makkah Mukarramah is sighted, read this Duaa:

Yaa Allaah, Who is the Rabb of the Seven Skies and of all things which are on it ,and the Rabb of Shaitaan and of all those whom shaitaan has misled, and the Rabb of the wind and of all that it blows. Thus, we seek from You good from this habitat and good from it’s populace, and we seek protection from the evil/bad of this habitat and from the evil of it’s populace.”

Some pious elders have recorded this Duaa:

“Yaa Allaah, definitely this Haram is Your Haram, and this city is Your city, and Your Security is true security, and this servant is Your servant. I have presented myself from far cities with many sins and bad deeds. I ask You an asking which is in desperation, and fearing Your punishment. I ask of you that solely due to Your Forgiveness, keep me in Your Haram and enter me into Your Jannah, full of boons from the wide Jannah. Yaa Allaah, definitely, this is Your Haram, thus make my meat and my bones Haraam on Jahannam. Yaa Allaah keep me safe from Your punishment on that Day when You resurrect Your servants from the graves.”

And the following Duaa as well:

“Yaa Allaah, make Makkah Mukarramah a resting place for me and bless me with halaal rizk (sustenance).”

After this, enter Makkah with utmost humility and meekness, keeping in mind the etiquettes, respect and dignity of the place one is entering. Keep your luggage at some safe place so that your heart is at ease, make wudhu and proceed quickly to the Masjid-e-Haram. The Masjid in which the Kaabah is situated is called the Masjid-e-Haram. The word “Haram” is used in a respectable sense.


“Yaa Allaah, raise the honour, dignity and virtue of this House and increase the dignity and respect of those that visit this House for Hajj or Umrah, and Your name is Peace and we can obtain Peace from You, thus keep us alive in Peace.”

Recite Durood Shareef after this and then, while standing, pray whatever you desire to pray, for Duaas are accepted easily during this time. Some pious eminent elders have said that one should ask for Jannah without accountability. Some have suggested the recital of the following Duaa at this juncture:

“I seek refuge from the Rabb of this House from debt , poverty and a small heart, and from the punishment of the grave.”

“O Allaah! You are Peace and from You comes peace ,so keep us alive, O Our Rabb, in Peace. O Rabb! increase this Your House in dignity, honour, nobleness and sacredness. And increase those who perform the Hajj or Umrah in honour, nobleness and righteousness.” After entering the Haram in the proper manner, the first thing to be done is to perform Tawaaf. For the person who came with the Ihraam of Umrah, the Tawaaf will be his Umrah Tawaaf which is Fardh. For the person who has come with the Ihraam of Hajj, the Tawaaf will be the Tawaaf-e-Qudoom, which is a Sunnat Tawaaf. If a person has entered the Haram at a time when Jamaat Salaat has just commenced, then he should first join the Imaam and make the Tawaaf later.


When facing the Hajr-e-Aswad, you should be on the left side of it. Standing in this position, make the intention for Tawaaf. To say the following verbally is good:

“Yaa Allaah, I intend performing Tawaaf of Your House, so make it easy for me and accept it (from me). Seven circuits for Allaah Taala , Who is Mighty and Dignified.”


After making intention, move a little to the right so that the Hajr-e-Aswad comes straight in front. Then raise the hands as one does in Salaat, to the ears and say:

“In the name of Allaah. Allaah is the greatest. No one but He is worthy of worship, and all Praise is especially for Him, and send Durood and Salaam on Rasulullaah (S.A.W.).Yaa Allaah, I believe in You, and I believe in Your Book, and complete Your Pact and follow Your Nabi Muhammad (S.A.W.)..”


When proceeding between the Hajr-e-Aswad and the Hateem , read:

“O Allaah! content me with that which You have given me, and give me more prosperity in it, and be my representative in the welfare of all those (family and children ) who are away from me. There is none worthy of worship save Allaah, He is Alone and has no associates. To Him alone belongs all authority, and to Him alone is all Praise due. And He has power over everything.”


Tawaaf is an Ibaadat in itself, and a great one. To be engaged in Zikr and Duaa whilst making Tawaaf, increases the reward of the Tawaaf. To read the third Kalimah in Tawaaf is proven from the Hadith.

BESIDES THESE, ONE MAY READ WHATEVER ONE WISHES. The best is to pray with sincerity from the heart. There are famous Duaas for every round of the Tawaaf. Amongst these are those which are proven from Rasulullaah (S.A.W.) BUT, none of them are proven specifically for Tawaaf or for any particular round of the Tawaaf. Because these Duaas are good and easy for the general public, some pious elders have gathered them together.

It should be remembered that one should read these Duaas with the knowledge that if one does not have a Duaa book, or has not read these Duaas in particular, then it does NOT affect the validity of one’s Tawaaf at all. To read these Duaas with the belief that it is masnoon or that one’s Tawaaf is not complete without them, is wrong.

Yaa Allaah, save us from the ignorance of sitting in the Masjid-e-Haram and not performing Tawaaf.


Allaah is Pure, and all Praise is for Him, and there is no one worthy of worship but Allaah. Allaah is the greatest, and from Allaah is the ability to refrain from sins, and to be inclined towards Ibaadah. Allaah is Lofty and Dignified, and Allaah’s Mercy and Salaam be on Rasulullaah (S.A.W.).O Allaah, I bring Faith in You and testify to Your words and complete my pledge with You and adhering to Your Nabi and Beloved,- I perform Tawaaf .Yaa Allaah, I ask of You, forgiveness– from sins and safety ( from every calamity ) and permanent protection ( from every difficulty ) in Deen, Dunyaa ( the world ) and in the Aakhirat ( hereafter ),and I ask for Jannah and seek salvation from Jahannam.Oh Great Lofty One, Oh Great Forgiving One, Oh Rabb of the entire universe.

Complete this Duaa on reaching Rukn-e-Yemaani, and when proceeding from here, read the following Duaa:

“Yaa Rabb, grant us good and blessings in this world and in the Aakhirat, and save us from the punishment of the fire, and enter us into Jannah with the pious ones. O Great Lofty One, O Great Forgiving One, O Rabb of the entire Universe.”


“Yaa Allaah, this House is definitely Your House, and this Haram is Your Haram. The Peace found here is the Peace given by You and every servant is Your servant, and I am only a servant, and this is the Place where one seeks refuge from the fire of Jahannam. Thus make our flesh and our skin Haraam for Jahannam.

Yaa Allaah, make Imaan beloved for us and beautify our hearts with it and remove Kufr and disobedience from our hearts and make us from amongst the guided ones.

Yaa Allaah, save us from the punishment on that Day when You will resurrect us. Yaa Allaah, enter us into Jannah without accountability.”


“Yaa Allaah, I seek Your refuge from doubt (in Your laws Your being and Your Qualities) , from Shirk and from Nifaaq (hypocrisy). and from evil conditions and from evil results in property and progeny.

Yaa Allaah, I beg from You, Your Pleasure and Jannah, and I seek protection from You from Your Wrath and from the fire.

Yaa Allaah, I seek refuge from the trials of the grave and from the calamities of life and death.”


“Ya Allah, make this Hajj an accepted one and be pleased with the effort and forgive the sins and make the actions good and accepted ones and grant me business without loss. O One who knows the inner recesses of the heart.Ya Allah, Move me from Darkness to Light (proper Imaan).Ya Allah, I seek (those actions )which make Your Mercy Waajib and (those actions) which make Your Forgiveness necessary ,and safety from every sin and (the ability to) benefit from every good, and to be rewarded with Jannah and freedom from the fire.

Ya Rabb, grant me contentment with whatever sustenance You have Provided for me, and grant barakat in whatever boons and favours You have granted me.”


“Yaa Allaah, grant me space in the shade on that Day when there will be no Shade except the shade of Your Throne, and when there will be nothing left besides Your Being, and make me drink from the pond of Your Nabi , Sayyidinah Muhammad (S.A.W.),such a pleasant and tasty mouthful, after which no thirst is felt.

Yaa Allaah, I ask of You those good things which Your Nabi, Sayyidinah Muhammad(S.A.W.) asked for, and I seek refuge from those evil things which Your Nabi, Sayyidinah Muhammad(S.A.W.) sought refuge ability to do such actions which will make Jannah nearer to me and I seek protection from those actions and words which take people near Jahannam”


“Yaa Allaah, on me are Your many rights in those things which are between me and You, and many rights in those things which are between me and Your creation. Yaa Allaah forgive me in all those things which are solely connected to You, and You become responsible for those things which are connected to Your creation.

Yaa Allaah Grant me Halaal Sustenance so that I can be independent from Haraam, and Grant me the ability to be obedient to You and Free me from disobedience and Bless me with Your Favours so that I am independent of others.

Yaa Allaah, definitely, Your House is the Most Dignified and Your Being is the Most Respectful, and Yaa Allaah, You are the Most Affectionate ,the Most Merciful One, and the Most Dignified One. You love Forgiveness, so Forgive my sins.”


“Yaa Allaah I ask of You Perfect Imaan and True Certainty and Abundant Sustenance and a Fearful ( humble) heart, and a tongue which makes Your Zikr, and Halaal and Pure earnings ( sustenance) and a heart which repents sincerely and truthfully and repentance before death and ease at the time of death, and Mercy after death, and Forgiveness at the time of accountability, and to be granted Jannah and to be granted Safety from Jahannam. (All this I ask ) through Your Mercy, O Dignified One, O Most Forgiving One, O my Rabb, increase me in knowledge and count me amongst the pious ones.”

Complete this Duaa on reaching Rukn-e-Yemaani, and when proceeding from here, read the following Duaa:



After the salaat of Tawaaf, go near the Maqaam-e-Ibraaheem and pray for whatever you desire. Some elders have recorded in the Ghuniyyatul Manaasik, that Hadhrat Adam (A.S.) prayed the following at this point:

“Yaa Allaah, You know all my external and internal conditions. I present an excuse, accept my excuse and fulfil my needs and what is in my heart, and forgive my sins. Yaa Allaah, I ask of you such Imaan which absorbs (fills) and penetrates my heart and ask for truthful certainty so that I know that only that which You have written for me, will reach me and whatever has been stipulated for me, I will be pleased with it.”


That portion which lay between the Hajr-e-Aswad and the doors of the Baitullaah is called the Multazam. Cling to this place and make Duaa with utmost sincerity of the heart. Spread your two hands above the head and attach your chest to the wall and place your cheek against it. This is a special place for the acceptance of Duaas. It has been experienced that Duaas are definitely accepted here. There is no specific Duaa for this particular place. However, for those who cannot focus on any Duaa, we have noted the following Duaa:

“Yaa Allaah, Oh Owner of this Ancient House, free our necks, and those of our fathers, forefathers, mothers and children. O Kind One, O Giver, O Doer of Good, Grant a good result in all affairs. Save us from the punishment of the Aakhirat and from the humiliation of this world. Yaa Allaah, I am Your servant, and the son of Your servant, standing under Your Holy Door, clinging to the threshold of Your Door, with humility, in front of You, Seeking Your Mercy, Fearing the punishment of Jahannam (fire).O Everlasting, Kind One, Oh Allaah, I ask of You, Remember me ,raise my remembrance, end my sins, make my actions correct, purify my heart, enlighten my grave, forgive my sins, I beg for a High position in Jannah.” (Ameen).


There is an abundance of zam-zam water to be found in the Haram to drink. Drink this water continuously and to one’s fill. Say Bismillah when beginning to drink and Alhamdulillah after drinking. Do not drink in less than three breaths. Then read this Duaa:

“Yaa Allaah, I ask of You, beneficial knowledge(Ilm),abundance of sustenance and protection from all ailments.” (Hisn-e-Haseen)


Sa’ee is Waajib for both Umrah and Hajj. It is essential that a Tawaaf is a made before Sa’ee. Sa’ee is not valid without Tawaaf being made before it.

To go back and forth between Safaa and Marwah is called Sa’ee. This is Waajib for Hajj and Umrah. It can be done after Tawaaf -e-Qudoom, for Hajj and also after Tawaaf-e-Ziyaarat, After the two rakaats of Tawaaf, first go to the Hajr-e-Aswad, make Istilaam , then go towards Safaa and begin the Sa’ee.


“Verily Safa and Marwa are of the signs of Allaah”.


“Yaa Allaah, I intend making Sa’ee between Safaa and Marwah, seven times, for Your pleasure. Make it easy for me and accept it from me”.

Then climb on Safaa to such a height from where the Kaabah is visible.(These days ,some part of the Kaabah becomes visible by climbing just a little bit. Facing the Kaabah, raise the hands as normal and recite ” Allaahu-Akbar “, three times. Mention the Tauheed of Allaah and recite the following:


“There is none worthy of worship besides Allaah. He is Alone. He has no partner .For Him is the Kingdom and for Him is the Praise and He is has Power (Control) over everything. There is none worthy of worship besides Allaah. He is Alone. He has fulfilled His promise and aided His servant and defeated the enemy side Alone.”

According to a narration Rasulullaah (SAW) repeated “Allahu Akbar” three times and thereafter recited the under-mentioned words once;

“There is none worthy of worship but Allaah alone. He is free from all associates. For Him alone is the sovereignty and to Him alone all Praise is due. And He is All-Powerful over everything.”

“O Allaah! You have said : “Call me, I shall respond to your call”, and You do not fail in Your promise. I beseech You that since You have guided me to Islaam, snatch it not away from me until You take me away while I am a Muslim.”


The following Duaa should be recited while running between the pillars:

“Ya Allaah, Forgive me and have Mercy You are the Most Lofty and the Most Affectionate One.”


On this day, the greatest rite of Hajj is carried out, that is the stay at Arafaat, or “Wuqoof-e-Arafaat”.Without this stay, the Hajj is invalid and will not be redeemed through penalty.

After sunrise, when the sun has spread a little, leave Mina and proceed to Arafaat. Arafaat is about six miles from Mina. Some elders have recorded the reading of the following Duaa when proceeding to Arafaat.

“Yaa Allaah, I turn towards You and rely on You ,and have intended to please You. Thus forgive my sins, and make my Hajj Mabroor (accepted),and have Mercy on me, and do not deprive me, and make my journey a blessed one, and fulfil my needs in Arafaat. Definitely, You have Power (control) over all things. Yaa Allaah, make my moving in this morning a cause for obtaining Your Pleasure and a means of removing Your Displeasure. I move towards You and rely on You and I have intended for Your Pleasure, so make me amongst those in front of whom You will boast, in front of those who are better and more superior than me. I ask of You ,permanent forgiveness and security in this world and in the Aakhirat, and send Durood on the best of creations, Muhammad and on his household and on his companions.”

On sighting the Jable Rahmat (which is a mountain in Arafaat) recite “Alhamdulillah, Subhaanallah, Allahu-Akbar.” and make whatever Duaa you desire, or else make the following Duaa.

“Yaa Allaah, I turn to You, and relied on You, and have intended to please You. Yaa Allaah, forgive me and accept my repentance, and fulfil my requests and wherever I turn let there be good. I mention Your Purity and All Praise is for Allaah ,and there is no One worthy of worship but Allaah and Allaah is the greatest.”

In Tirmidhi, it is written that Rasulullaah (S.A.W.) said that the best Duaa is the Duaa of the Day of Arafaat, and the best that I and the Ambiyaaa before me prayed is:

“There is no one worthy of worship but Allaah. He is Alone. He has no partner. For Him is the Kingdom and for Him is the Praise, and He has Power over all things.”

In Manasikh, Mulla Ali Qari (R.A.) reports from Tibrani that amongst the Duaas of Nabi (S.A.W.) during the time at Arafaat, is this one:
