In accordance to Sharia law, as for both pilgrimages, a Muslim must first assume Ihram , a state of purification achieved by completing cleansing rituals , wearing the prescribed attire , and abstaining from certain actions. Different conditions exist for air travelers, who must observe Ihram once entering a specific perimeter in the city. Umrah requires Muslims to perform two key rituals, Tawaf and Sa'i. For men, it is recommended to do the first three circuits in a hurried pace, followed by four rounds of a more leisurely pace. This is followed by Sa'i between Safa and Marwah in the Great Mosque of Mecca , a walk to commemorate Hagar 's search for water for her son and God's mercy in answering prayers. Pilgrims conclude the pilgrimage with Halq , a partial or complete shortening of the hair. Umrah is sometimes considered the "lesser pilgrimage", in that it is not compulsory, but is still highly recommended.
