Umrah is Holy ritual, an act of worship where the Muslims look upon to travel to the sacred holy land of Saudi Arabia precisely Makkah where they perform this ritual by visiting Kaaba. Kaaba, the sacred and holy place which foundation was laid by Prophet Ibrahim (A.S). After the revolution of Islam and in the era of prophet Muhammad P.B.U.H. Hajj was set to be the fifth pillar of Islam and Umrah is as sacred as performing half of Hajj. In Arabic ‘Umrah’ is derived from Al-timar which means visit or “visit to kabbah.” Umrah is holly ritual and obligation for those who can afford. In Islam Umrah is considered as minor pilgrimage or “Hajj al-Asghar.”
Abu Hurairah reported that the Prophet (P.B.U.H) said: “From one Umrah to the next is atonement for any sins committed in between.” (Bukhari and Muslim)
Ramadan Umrah is considered more precious as per Holy Quran it brings countless and enormous blessings and virtues for Muslim pilgrims.
Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W.) said:
The warriors or fighters who fight in the way of Allah and against evil and the Muslims who perform Hajj and Umrah are Allah’s guests. Allah invites them and they accept and they ask for anything to Allah and almighty grants.
As it’s said that the best deeds one can perform when pleasing Allah is Umrah after Hajj. Allah loves to his pilgrims who strive and come to please him and bear all hardships and leave their daily desires behind in the path of Allah.
Ibn Umar (R.A) narrates that Prophet (S.A.W.) said,
‘The warrior in the cause of Allah, the pilgrim and the one who is performing Umrah are all the delegation of Allah. He called them and they responded and they will ask of His bestowals and He will give it to them.’ (Ibn Majah)
Umrah is known to cleanse one’s soul from past committed sins and Muslims all over the world perform this sacred obligation several times in a year as per their affordability. But still Umrah in Ramadan is considered more devotional and blessed among all the other Islamic months.It is advised to do Umrah more than once in your lifetime so that it can act as a washing of the sins from the last time one performed Umrah.
In the blessed month of Ramadan, the reward of performing Umrah in Ramadan is equal to that of performing Hajj with the Prophet (S.A.W.). On many different occasions, the Prophet (S.A.W.) has told his companions that performing Umrah in the blessed month of Ramadan has rewards which are equal to performing Hajj with the Prophet (S.A.W.) himself.
Performing Umrah in Ramadan is not only considered ecclesiastical and spiritual obligation but also protects one from poverty and other rooted evils and sins, since they are there solely for the sake of Allah spending their wealth and time in completing the deed.
Indeed the virtues of Umrah in Ramadan are priceless to any Muslims and it is therefore referred to as a minor Hajj.
