just wanna share something i read from the Net..
In Arabic the word `Umrah is derived from I`timar which means a visit.
However, `Umrah technically means
paying a visit to Ka`bah,
performing Tawaf [Circumambulation] around it,
walking between Safa and Marwah seven times.
A performer of `Umrah puts off his Ihram by having his hair shaved or cut.
