    I cant go with an agency cuz they require me to have covid vaccine and i dont have (nor do i want to have) so i have to do everything alone.I am an EU citizen and i dont speak arabic.

    What do i need to know? Any help is appreciated

    Please read at least 4-5 of these books:

    https://www.bookdepository.com/searc...arch=Find+book

    You need to get vaccines even if you are going alone.

    I would recommend going with a well respected agency as they will guide you a lot on the way and it will be more interesting and less time consuming so you would be able to pray more.

    Plan as you come to spend the more you can in the masjid. Eat a little and pray and ask duas during night, at tahajjud time.

    I would recommend you to start right now the regimen of daily tasbeehs, like: subhanallahi walhamdulillahi wa la ilaha illallahu wallahu akbar wa la hawla wa la quwwattw illa billahil aliyyil adheem, estegfar: astagfirullah al adheem alladhee la ilaha illa huwal hayyul qayyumu wa atubu ilayh, salawat, like ibrahimi or: Allahumma salli ala Muhammadin wa ala ali Muhammadin wa barik wa sallim, gratitude: shukrulillah, praying for others: Allahummagfirli warhamni wahdini wa lil momonina wal mominate, this tasbeh: la ilaha illallahu wajdahu la shatika lah lahul mulku wa lahil hamdu wa huwa ala kulli shayin qadeer, asma: ya hayyu ya qayyumu, ya dhal jalaali wal ikram and other, surah ikhlas.
    Please find in Arabic and start consistantly to do these great rewarding good deeds and build up their numbers.

    Try fasting nawafils, like 10 days of dhul hijah, and increasing the above adhkaar as much as you can and praying during the night.

    Please be wise and lawful. You can get arrested and spend years in prison in KSA.

    As umrah is ibadah it has its obligations that you must learn and follow.

    Do not play as there are other perspectives you do not know now.

    Without sincere learning/reading until you grasp the fards/wajibs/sunnahs and preparations better do not go.

    And of course:

    Know the meaning of tawakkaltu alallah in English. Bismillahi tawakkaltu alallahi lahaula walakuata illabillah is a Dua before leaving home....

    And how do you know i dont grasp the fard/wajib/sunnas? You know nothing about me.
    You can tell me the obligations of umrah and the perspectives that i dont know instead of giving me dhikr and duaa when one lives the house. I mean jzk khair but im asking for ssmth else and you say smth else

    I have noticed that in nearly every thread you post in, your posts end with a long list of Nawafil actions that people should do, similar to the above. Whilst Nawafil actions are very virtuous and important, we also need to remember that people are of different levels and we need to be careful of overburdening them. Some people might be struggling with the obligations, so to tell them to do numerous daily voluntary worship might push them away. When people would come to the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم, he would give advice specific to the type of person and their situation. It is like a doctor giving patients different medication to treat their differing illnesses. If you give the same medication to every person, in some cases it can cause harm.

    In addition, we need to take a gradual approach to self-development, not overwhelming ourselves with everything at once. The Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم started by calling people to monotheism, then he started telling them other things gradually as the Qur'an was being revealed during a period of 23 years. In the well-known Hadith regarding the manner in which a servant draws closer to Allah, it first mentions the obligations then it moves on to mention the Nawafil. We also learn in Islam the importance of moderation. In one Hadith we are taught that the best deeds are those done regularly even if they are few.

    From what I have observed through the reactions of some members, I don't think this approach of yours is having the desired effect, rather the opposite - this thread being an example. Please reflect on this and advise people in a way that is relevant and beneficial to them. May Allah forgive us for our shortcomings and help us all to draw nearer to Him, Aameen.

    Walaikum asalaam,

    If the agency requires it, it's because it's a mandate from the saudi gov't. From what I know there are military checks to ensure you are vaccinated before entering the haram (or that used to be the case a few months ago), and before you board your flight you will need to prove vaccination and have your umrah visa or you'll be denied entry. There's no way around it really.

    However, covid measures have gotten much better recently so inshallah this vaccine mandate will be removed soon.
