Why Booking Ramadan Umrah Packages in Advance is Essential

Posted by Safeena Rahman on March 18th, 2019

Ramadan is a holy month for Muslims all over the world and is observed by fasting from dawn until sunset. The month commemorates the first revelation of the Holy Quran to Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). Observing fast during this month is one of the five pillars of Islam and is an obligation for all the adult Muslims. All those who are travelling, suffering from illness, chronically ill, the elderly, menstruating women, diabetic patients, women in their pregnancy or mothers who need to breastfeed their children are exempted from fasting. However, those who observe the fast throughout the month definitely undergo self-purification and get spiritually rewarded.

Also spiritually rewarding is an Umrah in Ramadan, which is performed by many of the Muslims living in different corners of the world every year. The importance of the lesser pilgrimage performed in the holy month can be understood by an event narrated in the Islamic traditions. According to the narration, Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) had once stated that an Umrah performed in the month of Ramadan was like (in terms of rewards) performing the major pilgrimage of Hajj with him. This is, of course, not an obligation but a source of greater spiritual rewards for the pilgrim performing it.

The Ramadan Umrah packages offered by many of the tour operators in the United Kingdom give Muslims residing in the country the chance to fulfil their dream of accomplishing the lesser pilgrimage in the holy month. With any of these packages, they can get to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and perform their Umrah without any hassles. They would also get the chance to see millions of other Muslims get together in the holy city of Makkah to fulfil their sacred intention of Umrah. It would also be one of the most pleasant experiences to see the Muslims from different parts of the world break their fasts together after sunset.

For getting one of the best Ramadan Umrah packages to perform the lesser pilgrimage in the holy month, the booking has to be made well in advance. A big reason for this is the heavy rush for bookings, which begins several months earlier. Owing to the spiritual benefits associated with performing Umrah in the holy month of Ramadan, many Muslims residing in the UK try to book a package as soon as possible. Besides, the bookings made in advance also bring several benefits for Muslims of the UK.

Bookings that are made several months in advance reduce the cost of such packages to a great extent. Once the booking is done, they need not worry about the heavy rush for bookings that begin much before Ramadan. They can use the savings made while booking any of the packages during their time spent in Makkah for buying attractive souvenirs or to visit the important Islamic sites. These places can be reached from the hotel where their accommodation is arranged by their tour operator. Upon visiting these holy sites, they would feel truly blessed and would cherish the moments spent at such places.

There are many ways, by which, the UK Muslims can reduce their cost of Umrah packages and have more savings for their journey to Makkah.
