Books – Youssef Afifi:
The Saudi Ministry of Hajj and Umrah advised those wishing to perform the rituals of Umrah to follow a set of advice and physical preparation before performing the rituals of Umrah.
This comes days after Dr. Tawfiq bin Fawzan Al-Rabiah, the Saudi Minister of Hajj and Umrah, announced that any visitor to the Kingdom would be allowed to perform Umrah at any time of the year.
The Saudi Ministry of Hajj and Umrah said in an educational leaflet that the tips include:
1- The need to reduce food intake in general.
2- The need to stay away from heavy foods.
3- The need to drink an adequate amount of fluids.
4- Get used to lukewarm water.
5- Take a warm shower before coming to the Grand Mosque.
6- Walking in the days preceding the Umrah.
7- Take medical medications on time.
8- Moisturizing overweight areas to avoid skin rashes.
9- The time of arrival and the date of Umrah must be separated by hours of relaxation.
10- Take a sufficient amount of sleep the night before the Umrah.
