When Abdullah bin Umar set out for Mecca intending to perform Umra, at the time of afflictions, he said, ''If I should be prevented from reaching the Kaba, then I would do the same as Allah's Apostle did, so I assume the lhram for Umra as Allah's Apostle assumed the Ihram for Umra in the year of Hudaibiya.''

And they assign a portion of that which We have given them unto what they know not. By Allah! but ye will indeed be asked concerning all that ye used to invent.
I was with Ibn Umar on the way to Mecca, and he got the news that Safiya bint Abu Ubaid was seriously ill. So, he hastened his pace, and when the twilight disappeared, he dismounted and offered the Maghrib and Isha' prayers together. Then he said, ''I saw that whenever the Prophet had to hasten when traveling, he would delay the Maghrib prayer and join them together (i.e. offer the Maghrib and the Isha prayers together).''

The Prophet said, ''Traveling is a kind of torture as it prevents one from eating, drinking and sleeping properly. So, when one's needs are fulfilled, one should return quickly to one's family.''

And afterward, when He hath rid you of the misfortune, behold! a set of you attribute partners to their Lord,
I heard Al-Bara' saying, ''The above Verse was revealed regarding us, for the Ansar on returning from Hajj never entered their houses through the proper doors but from behind. One of the Ansar came and entered through the door and he was taunted for it. Therefore, the following was revealed: – ''It is not righteousness That you enter the houses from the back, But the righteous man is He who fears Allah, Obeys His order and keeps away from What He has forbidden So, enter houses through the proper doors.'' (2.189)

As above, but mentioned ''the walls of Medina'' instead of ''the high places of Medina. Al-Harith bin Umar agrees with Anas.

Unto Him belongeth whatsoever is in the heavens and the earth, and religion is His for ever. Will ye then fear any other than Allah?
Anas said, ''Whenever Allah's Apostle returned from a journey, he, on seeing the high places of Medina, would make his she-camel proceed faster; and if it were another animal, even then he used to make it proceed faster.'' Narrated Humaid that the Prophet used to make it proceed faster out of his love for Medina.

Whenever Allah's Apostle left for Mecca, he used to pray in the mosque of Ash-Shajra, and when he returned (to Medina), he used to pray in the middle of the valley of Dhul-Hulaifa and used to pass the night there till morning.
Jul 22, 2016
When the Prophet arrived at Mecca, some boys of the tribe of Bani Abdul Muttalib went to receive him, and the Prophet made one of them ride in front of him and the other behind him.
Jul 21, 2016
Whenever Allah's Apostle returned from a Ghazwa, Hajj or Umra, he used to say Takbir thrice at every elevation of the ground and then would say, ''None has the right to be worshipped but Allah; He is One and has no partner. All the kingdoms is for Him, and all the praises are for Him, and He is Omnipotent. We are returning with repentance, worshipping, prostrating, and praising our Lord. He has kept up His promise and made His slave victorious, and He Alone defeated all the clans of (non-believers).''

Abdullah the slave of Asma bint Abu Bakr, told me that he used to hear Asma', whenever she passed by Al-Hajun, saying, ''May Allah bless His Apostle Muhammad. Once we dismounted here with him, and at that time we were traveling with light luggage; we had a few riding animals and a little food ration. I, my sister, Aisha, Az-Zubair and such and such persons performed Umra, and when we had passed our hands over the Ka'ba (i.e. performed Tawaf round the Ka'ba and between As-Safa and Al-Marwa) we finished our lhram. Later on we assumed Ihram for Hajj the same evening.''
Jul 19, 2016
I came to the Prophet at Al-Batha' while his camel was kneeling down and he asked me, ''Have you intended to perform the Hajj?'' I replied in the affirmative. He asked me, With what intention have you assumed Ihram?'' I replied, ''I have assumed Ihram with the same intention as that of the Prophet. He said, ''You have done well. Perform the Tawaf of the Ka'ba and (the Sai) between As-safa and Al-Marwa and then finish the Ihram.'' So, I performed the Tawaf around the Ka'ba and the Sai) between As-Safa and Al-Marwa and then went to a woman of the tribe of Qais who cleaned my head from lice. Later I assumed the Ihram for Hajj. I used to give the verdict of doing the same till the caliphate of Umar who said, ''If you follow the Holy Book then it orders you to remain in the state of Ihram till you finish from Hajj, if you follow the Prophet then he did not finish his Ihram till the Hadi (sacrifice) had reached its place of slaughtering (Hajj-al-Qiran).''

With clear proofs and writings; and We have revealed unto thee the Remembrance that thou mayst explain to mankind that which hath been revealed for them, and that haply they may reflect.
We asked Ibn Umar whether a man who had performed the Tawaf of the Ka'ba but had not performed the Tawaf between As-Safa and Al-Marwa yet, was permitted to have sexual relation with his wife. He replied, ''The Prophet arrived (at Mecca) and circumambulated the Ka'ba seven times and then offered a two Rak'at prayer behind Maqam-lbrahim and then performed the going (Tawaf) between As-Safa and Al-Marwa (seven times) (and verily, in Allah's Apostle you have a good example.'' And we asked Jabir bin Abdullah (the same question) and he replied, ''He should not go near her till he has finished the going (Tawaf) between As-Safa and Al-Marwa.''

And We sent not as Our messengers before thee other than men whom We inspired - Ask the followers of the Remembrance if ye know not! -
Abdullah bin Abu Aufa said: ''Allah's Apostle performed Umra and we too performed Umra along with him. When he entered Mecca he performed the Tawaf (of Ka'ba) and we too performed it along with him, and then he came to the As-Safa and Al-Marwa (i.e. performed the Sai) and we also came to them along with him. We were shielding him from the people of Mecca lest they may hit him with an arrow.'' A friend of his asked him (i.e. Abdullah bin Aufa), ''Did the Prophet enter the Ka'ba (during that Umra)?'' He replied in the negative. Then he said, ''What did he (the Prophet ) say about Khadija?'' He (Abdullah bin Aufa) said, ''(He said) Give Khadija the good tidings that she will have a palace made of Qasab in Paradise and there will be neither noise nor any trouble in it.''

While I was a youngster, I asked Aisha the wife of the Prophet. ''What about the meaning of the Statement of Allah; ''Verily! (the mountains) As-Safa and Al Marwa, are among the symbols of Allah. So, it is not harmful if those who perform Hajj or Umra of the House (Ka'ba at Mecca) to perform the going (Tawaf) between them? (2.158) I understand (from that) that there is no harm if somebody does not perform the Tawaf between them.'' Aisha replied, ''No, for if it were as you are saying, then the recitation would have been like this: It is not harmful not to perform Tawaf between them.' This verse was revealed in connection with the Ansar who used to assume the Ihram for the idol Manat which was put beside a place called Qudaid and those people thought it not right to perform the Tawaf of As-Safa and Al-Marwa. When Islam came, they asked Allah's Apostle about that, and Allah revealed:– ''Verily! (the mountains) As-Safa and Al-Marwa Are among the symbols of Allah. So, it is not harmful of those who perform Hajj or Umra of the House (Ka'ba at Mecca) to perform the going (Tawaf) between them.'' (2.158) Sufyan and Abu Muawiya added from Hisham (from Aisha): ''The Hajj or Umra of the person who does not perform the going (Tawaf) between As-Safa and Al-Marwa is incomplete in Allah's sight.

''A man came to the Prophet while he was at Ji'rana. The man was wearing a cloak which had traces of Khaluq or Sufra (a kind of perfume). The man asked (the Prophet ), What do you order me to perform in my Umra?' So, Allah inspired the Prophet divinely and he was screened by a place of cloth. I wished to see the Prophet being divinely inspired. Umar said to me, Come! Will you be pleased to look at the Prophet while Allah is inspiring him?' I replied in the affirmative. Umar lifted one corner of the cloth and I looked at the Prophet who was snoring. (The sub-narrator thought that he said: The snoring was like that of a camel). When that state was over, the Prophet asked, ''Where is the questioner who asked about Umra? Put off your cloak and wash away the traces of Khaluq from your body and clean the Sufra (yellow color) and perform in your Umra what you perform in your Hajj (i.e. the Tawaf round the Ka'ba and the Sa'i between Safa and Marwa). ''
And those who became fugitives for the cause of Allah after they had been oppressed, We verily shall give them goodly lodging in the world, and surely the reward of the Hereafter is greater, if they but knew;

And Our word unto a thing, when We intend it, is only that We say unto it: Be! and it is.
We set out assuming the Ihram for Hajj in the months of Hajj towards the sacred precincts of Hajj. We dismounted at Sarif and the Prophet said to his companions, ''Whoever has not got the Hadi with him and likes to make it as Umra, he should do it, but he who has got the Hadi with him should not do it.'' The Prophet and some of his wealthy companions had the Hadi with them, so they did not finish Ihram after performing the Umra. The Prophet came to me while I was weeping. He asked me the reason for it. I replied, ''I have heard of what you have said to your companions and I cannot do the Umra.'' He asked me, ''What is the matter with you?'' I replied, ''I am not praying.'' He said, ''There is no harm in it as you are one of the daughters of Adam and the same is written for you as for others. So, you should perform Hajj and I hope that Allah will enable you to perform the Umra as well.'' So, I carried on till we departed from Mina and halted at Al-Mahassab. The Prophet called Abdur-Rahman and said, ''Go out of the sanctuary with your sister and let her assume Ihram for Umra, and after both of you have finished the Tawaf I will be waiting for you at this place.'' We came back at mid-night and the Prophet asked us, ''Have you finished?'' I replied in the affirmative. He announced the departure and the people set out for the journey and some of them had performed the Tawaf of the Ka'ba before the morning prayer, and after that the Prophet set out for Medina.

That Aisha said, ''O Allah's Apostle! The people are returning after performing the two Nusuks (i.e. Hajj and Umra) but I am returning with one only?'' He said, ''Wait till you become clean from your menses and then go to At-Tan'im, assume Ihram (and after performing Umra) join us at such-and-such a place. But it (i.e. the reward if Umra) is according to your expenses or the hardship (which you will undergo while performing it).''

And they swear by Allah their most binding oaths that Allah will not raise up him who dieth. Nay, but it is a promise binding upon Him in truth, but most of mankind know not,
We set out with Allah's Apostle shortly before the appearance of the new moon of Dhi-l-Hiija and he said, ''Whoever wants to assume Ihram for Umra may do so, and whoever wants to assume Ihram for Hajj may do so. Had not I brought the Hadi with me, I would have assumed Ihram for Umra.'' Some of the people assumed Ihram for Umra while others for Hajj. I was amongst those who had assumed Ihram for Umra. I got my menses before entering Mecca, and was menstruating till the day of Arafat. I complained to Allah's Apostle about it, he said, ''Abandon your Umra, undo and comb your hair, and assume Ihram for Hajj.'' So, I did that accordingly. When it was the night of Hasba (day of departure from Mina), the Prophet sent Abdur Rahman with me to At-Tanim. The sub-narrator adds: He ('AbdurRahman) let her ride behind him. And she assumed Ihram for Umra in lieu of the abandoned one. Aisha completed her Hajj and Umra, and no Hadi, Sadaqa (charity), or fasting was obligatory for her.

Even if thou O Muhammad desirest their right guidance, still Allah assuredly will not guide him who misleadeth. Such have no helpers.
The Prophet and his companions assumed Ihram for Hajj and none except the Prophet and Talha had the Hadi with them. Ali had come from Yemen and he had the Hadi with him. He ('Ali) said, ''I have assumed Ihram with an intention like that of Allah's Apostle has assumed it.'' The Prophet ordered his companions to intend the Ihram with which they had come for Umra, to perform the Tawaf of the Ka'ba (and between Safa and Marwa), to get their hair cut short and then to finish their Ihram with the exception of those who had the Hadi with them. They asked, ''Shall we go to Mina and the private organs of some of us are dribbling (if we finish Ihram and have sexual relations with our wives)?'' The Prophet heard that and said, ''Had I known what I know now, I would not have brought the Hadi. If I did not have the Hadi with me I would have finished my Ihram.'' Aisha got her menses and performed all the ceremonies (of Hajj) except the Tawaf . So when she became clean from her menses, and she had performed the Tawaf of the Ka'ba, she said, ''O Allah's Apostle! You (people) are returning with both Hajj and Umra and I am returning only with Hajj!'' So, he ordered Abdur Rahman bin Abu Bakr to go with her to At-Tan'im. Thus she performed Umra after the Hajj in the month of Dhi-l-Hijja. Suraqa bin Malik bin Ju'sham met the Prophet at Al-'Aqaba (Jamrat-ul Aqaba) while the latter was stoning it and said, ''O Allah's Apostle! Is this permissible only for you?'' The Prophet replied, ''No, it is for ever (i.e. it is permissible for all Muslims to perform Umra before Hajj.''

And verily We have raised in every nation a messenger, proclaiming: Serve Allah and shun false gods. Then some of them there were whom Allah guided, and some of them there were upon whom error had just hold. Do but travel in the land and see the nature of the consequence for the deniers!

And the idolaters say: Had Allah willed, we had not worshipped aught beside Him, we and our fathers, nor had we forbidden aught without command from Him. Even so did those before them. Are the messengers charged with aught save plain conveyance of the message?
We set out along with Allah's Apostle shortly before the appearance of the new moon (crescent) of the month of Dhi-l-Hijja and he said to us, ''Whoever wants to assume Ihram for Hajj may do so; and whoever wants to assume Ihram for Umra may do so. Hadn't I brought the Hadi (animal for sacrificing) (with me), I would have assumed Ihram for Umra.'' ('Aisha added,): So some of us assumed Ihram for Umra while the others for Hajj. I was amongst those who assumed Ihram for Umra. The day of Arafat approached and I was still menstruating. I complained to the Prophet (about that) and he said, ''Abandon your Umra, undo and comb your hair, and assume Ihram for Hajj;.'' When it was the night of Hasba, he sent Abdur Rahman with me to At-Tan'im and I assumed Ihram for Umra (and performed it) in lieu of my missed Umra.

So that the evil of what they did smote them, and that which they used to mock surrounded them.
I heard Ibn Abbas saying, ''Allah's Apostle asked an Ansari woman (Ibn Abbas named her but Ata' forgot her name), What prevented you from performing Hajj with us?' She replied, We have a camel and the father of so-and-so and his son (i.e. her husband and her son) rode it and left one camel for us to use for irrigation.' He said (to her), Perform Umra when Ramadan comes, for Umra in Ramadan is equal to Hajj (in reward),' or said something similar.''

Await they aught say that the angels should come unto them or thy Lord's command should come to pass? Even so did those before them. Allah wronged them not, but they did wrong themselves,
I asked Masruq, Ata' and Mujahid (about the Umra of Allah's Apostle). They said, ''Allah's Apostle had performed Umra in Dhi-l-Qa'da before he performed Hajj.'' I heard Al-Bara' bin Azib saying, ''Allah's Apostle had performed Umra in Dhi-l-Qa'da twice before he performed Hajj.''

Those whom the angels cause to die when they are good. They say: Peace be unto you! Enter the Garden because of what ye used to do.
The Prophet performed four Umra (three) in Dhi-l-Qa'da except the (one) Umra which he performed with his Hajj: His Umra from Al-hudaibiya, and the one of the following year, and the one from Al-Jr'rana where he distributed the booty (of the battle) of Hunain, and another Umra with his Hajj.

Gardens of Eden which they enter, underneath which rivers flow, wherein they have what they will. Thus Allah repayeth those who ward off evil,
I asked Anas (about the Prophet's Umra) and he replied, ''The Prophet performed Umra when the pagans made him return, and Umra of al-Hudaibiya (the next year), and another Umra in Dhi-l-Qa'da, and another Umra in combination with his Hajj.''
Jul 4, 2016
And it is said unto those who ward off evil: What hath your Lord revealed? They say: Good. For those who do good in this world there is a good reward and the home of the Hereafter will be better. Pleasant indeed will be the home of those who ward off evil -
I asked Anas how many times the Prophet had performed Umra. He replied, ''Four times. 1. Umra of Hudaibiya in Dhi-l-Qa'da when the pagans hindered him; 2. Umra in the following year in Dhi-l-Qa'da after the peace treaty with them (the pagans); 3. Umra from Al-Jr'rana where he distributed the war booty.'' I think he meant the booty (of the battle) of Hunain. I asked, ''How many times did he perform Hajj?'' He (Anas) replied, ''Once. ''

Ursa bin AzZubair and I entered the Mosque (of the Prophet) and saw Abdullah bin Umar sitting near the dwelling place of Aisha and some people were offering the Duha prayer. We asked him about their prayer and he replied that it was a heresy. He (Ursa) then asked him how many times the Prophet had performed Umra. He replied, Four times; one of them was in the month of Rajab.'' We disliked to contradict him. Then we heard Aisha, the Mother of faithful believers cleaning her teeth with Siwak in the dwelling place. Ursa said, ''O Mother! O Mother of the believers! Don't you hear what Abu Abdur Rahman is saying?'' She said, ''What does he say?'' Ursa said, ''He says that Allah's Apostle performed four Umra and one of them was in the month of Rajab.'' Aisha said, ''May Allah be merciful to Abu Abdur Rahman! The Prophet did not perform any Umra except that he was with him, and he never performed any Umra in Rajab.''
Whom the angels cause to die while they are wronging themselves. Then will they make full submission saying: We used not to do any wrong. Nay! Surely Allah is Knower of what ye used to do.
