Common mistakes that people do in Hajj and Umrah

by Ady Grewal Content writer
Many of you would be interested to get Umrah packages from the UK but before you proceed with such things, you need to be clear about a very important thing. There are many people who make some common mistakes while performing Hajj and Umrah. Hence, you should be aware of all those mistakes beforehand so that you would not be committing the same acts intentionally or unintentionally. 

Common mistakes in Hajj and Umrah:

The following are the common mistakes or you can say the misconceptions about Hajj and Umrah:

Misconception about Dua:

There are many people who have a misconception about the acceptance of Dua. You will have heard from many people that your Duas are accepted at first glance at the Holy Kaaba. Although there is a big reward to see the holy Kaaba and you feel very peaceful to see it but there is no evidence in the Holy Quran regarding the concept that Duas are accepted at the first glance at the holy Kaaba. 

Kissing the black stone from Far Away:

The black stone that is also called Hajr-e-Aswad is of great importance in Islam.  A very common mistake that many people do is to kiss the black stone from far away, in the air or even to stop during Tawaf for the sake of kissing this stone. If there is a big crowd of people there and you are creating disturbance by doing so then such an act is not liked by Allah Almighty. If it is easy for you to kiss black stone, then you must do or try to touch it with your hand and then kiss your hand. Even if this is not possible then it is not just to do so, you should point to it from far away and just say, “Allahu Akbar”. 

Shouting out Duas:

You must not shout out Duas during Tawaf of the Holy Kaaba. During Tawaf, all the Muslims follow a leader who uses to say Dua loudly so that others can hear him and follow him but the purpose is not to induce others to shout as well. If the whole crowd will start shouting out Duas then it will cause a big disturbance and some people who have weak listening skills will not be able to hear the leader. 

To do Tawaf on behalf of someone else:

Another common mistake that has been observed is that many Muslims do Tawaf of the holy Kaaba on behalf of any of his family member especially for those who have passed away. Such an act is not valid in the light of Islam. You can perform Hajj and Umrah on their behalf but only Tawaf on behalf of others is not valid. 

If you think that you are not having enough funds to perform Hajj then you should plan about performing the minor pilgrimage, Umrah. You can get cheap Umrah packages from UK but if you make a proper research. You can find many travel agents in the UK who are dealing in Umrah packages but you should look for an authorized agent so that you will be able to get the best facilities in your Umrah package.
