Wearing of Ihram refers to wearing an unstitched seamless sheet of cloth over the body once one is at Miqat and makes the intention of performing Hajj. Once one wears Ihram one has to also stay away and refrain from all the things that are prescribed as unlawful in the state of Ihram.

There are a few differences between the Ihram worn by men and the Ihram worn by women. The differences are:

  1. Women can wear sewn clothes as Ihram compared to men who have to wear unstitched clothes
  2. Compared to men, women can also cover their head with some cloth when in state of Ihram
  3. Women cannot such a veil in the state of Ihram that touches their face
  4. Women can also wear socks and gloves in the state of Ihram
  5. The things that are unlawful for a man are also unlawful for a woman in the state of Ihram

The performance of Hajj requires a variety of activities to be undertaken by the pilgrim in a specific order. The order and the activities that need to be performed are as follows:

  1. When a pilgrim reaches the point of Miqat in Macca from there it becomes obligatory upon him or her to enter into the state of Ihram whilst fulfilling all its conditions.
  2. Upon reaching Macca the pilgrims to visit the Grand Mosque that is around the Kaba. There they perform the optional Tawaf which is also known as Tawaf-al-Qudoom.
  3. On the day of 8th of Dul-Hijja the pilgrims to Mina which is about 3 miles from Mecca. They have to reach their before the Duhr Adhan and spend the whole night of 9th of Dul-Hijja there as well.
  4. After the Fajr prayer on the 9th of Dul Hijja the pilgrims move towards Arafat which is at a distance of about 7miles from Macca. During their journey the pilgrims also try to stay and take rest in the area of Mauqaf that is situated around the Jabl-e-Rahmat and there they remember Allah.
  5. On the evening of 9th of Dul-Hijja the pilgrims leave Mauqaf and move towards Muzdalifa which is a place between Mina and Arafat. There the pilgrims offer Maghrib and Isha prayer.
  6. The pilgrims spend the night of 10th of Dul-Hijja at Muzdalifa and for the morning prayers they move to Mina. In their moving to Mina they make sure to carry 49 pebbles which they are to cast upon the pillars of Satan.
  7. On the day of 10th of Dul-Hijjah the pilgrims cast stones on each of the pillars of Satan.
  8. Once the stones are casted, the pilgrims give sacrifice of an animal. After the sacrifice the men shave off their head while the women must cut at least an inch of their hair.
  9. Once the hair are cut, the pilgrims now leave the state of Ihram and move towards Macca where they once again have to perform the Tawaf and after which they have to offer two Rakat Sunnah prayer.
  10. After Tawaf and Sunnah prayer the pilgrims have to perform Sa’ee.
  11. Afterwards the pilgrims then go back to Mina on the night of 11th of Dul-Hijja.
  12. On 11th and 12th of Dul-Hijja, once the mid-day is passed the pilgrims again move towards the pillars of Satan and cast stones on all seven of them whilst reciting special supplication.
  13. The pilgrims then return to Macca on the 12th of Dul-Hijja where they offer Dhur prayer. After that those who are to leave for their country perform a farewell Tawaf of Kabah and then set out for their destinations.
