Lots of rituals and Mustahab acts for “Hajj” and “Umrah” has been mentioned in the word of great Faqihs (Allah’s heaven be upon them) that we bring a considerable part of it exactly here.
But it is better to perform them with the intention of “Rija’”, which means hoping for the goodness of the act in the eyes of religion and having benefits and blessings, because some of them have not enough proofs (and we do not consider the principle of tolerance correct in the proof of traditions and Mustahab acts).
“Another important point” is that performing some of those Mustahab acts today and with that congestion of crowds in there is impossible for lots of people; therefore they perform anything which is possible, and if Hajji wants to perform an act which it is not possible to perform and have the intention of performing that, Allah will give him/her the reward according to his/her intention as it has been mentioned in cabbalas of Ma’soomin (a.s.).
Mustahab acts of travel: It is Mustahab for a person who intends to travel to Mecca or other places to ask Allah for goodness of the travel and prepare his/her will and pay alms in order to buy his/her health with that alms and it is Mustahab to perform four Rak’ats prayer in the home when he/she is preparing for travel and recites Hamd and “قل هو الله” Suras in each Rak'at and says:
اللَّهُمَّ إنّی أتَقَرَّبُ إلَیْکَ بهِنَّ، فَاجْعَلْهُنَّ خَلیفَتی فی أهْلِی وَ مَالی .
And it is Mustahab to stand at the door of his/her house and recites Hamd Sura three times in front, right side and left side also Ayat al-Kursi (verse 255 of Baqara Sura) three times in the same way and says after that:
اَللَّهُمَّ احفَظْنى وَ احْفَظْ مَا مَعىَ وَ سَلِّمْنی وَ سَلِّم مَا مَعِىَ وَ بَلِّغْنی وَ بَلِّغْ مَا مَعِىَ ببَلاغِکَ الحَسَنِ الجَمیلِ.
