Paying full attention and pondering over the verses is the key to attaining the hidden treasures of Allah’s Book. It is a book of secrets, worldly and hereafter treasures. It is a book that reveals the true meaning of life, the purpose and creation of mankind. Therefore, it has to be recited according to Sunnah i.e. with tarteel.

 

Reciting the Quran with tarteel and tajweed comes with reading it in a slow, measured and distinct manner helps the reader to understand and the pleasure of repeating the words that are spoken out by none other than Allah is priceless.

There are four pillars of Umrah, They are:

 

Ihraam, Tawaaf, Sa’y and Tahal –lul.

 

Ihram is assumed at the Meeqat. Tawaaf is performed by walking round the Ka’abah. Walking between As-safaa and Al-Marwah is called Sa’y. It consists of seven circuits. The last pillar of Islam is Tahal-lul in which the pilgrim comes out of his state of Ihraam.

Though, the situation was first changed fourteen hundred years ago when Islam came into view in the land of Arabia.
