In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy

Narrated Safwaan bin Ya’laa bin Umayyah that his father said, “A man came to the Prophet [sallal laahu alayhi wasallam] while he was at Ji’raana. The man was wearing a cloak which had traces of khalooq of Sufra [a kind of perfume]. The man asked [the Prophet], ‘What do you order me to perform in my ‘Umrah?’ So, Allaah sent down revelation to the Prophet and he was screened by a piece 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 Allaah is inspiring him?’ I replied in the affirmative. ‘Umar lifted one corner of the cloth and I looked at the Prophet, [له غطيط – i.e. they heard a noise -from the Prophet-that was similar to that of a person snoring in his sleep]. When that state was over, the Prophet asked, “Where is the questioner who asked about ‘Umrah? Put off your cloak and wash away the traces of khalooq from your body and clean the Sufra [yellow colour] and perform in your ‘Umrah what you perform in your Hail [i.e., the Tawaaf round the Ka’bah and the Sa’ee (going) between As-Safaa and Al-Marwa].”
