Our local Imam, Hafiz Abdal-Dayan, with whom we are going on Hajj with, runs Hajj classes at our local mosque. Due to work commitments attending the classes has been very difficult and so managed to attend a class yesterday. He started from the beginning and told us the 5 essentials of Ihram:
- to wear the Ihram
- to pray two raka’ahs of nawafil of Ihram
- to make intention for Umra that Allah accept it and make it easy for one’s self
- to make the talbiyya
- and to make a dua
