UK Muslims Can Now Make Their Umrah Packages Cheaper

Posted by safeenarah on March 29th, 2019

Umrah is often referred to as the 'lesser pilgrimage', especially when compared to Hajj, which is a major pilgrimage in Islam and one of its five pillars. It is Prophet Muhammad's (peace be upon him) Sunnah and this is the reason why it has a special place in the hearts of Muslims across the world. This particular pilgrimage is not an obligation for a Muslim and can be performed at any time during the year. As it involves a lesser number of rituals compared to Hajj, Umrah can be performed within a few hours.

Muslims living in countries far from the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia have to make a long journey to the holy city of Makkah from their homes and this involves a certain amount of cost. This is the reason why many Muslims living in the United Kingdom had to keep postponing their plans of performing the lesser pilgrimage in the past. Over the years, many tour operators have come up in various parts of the country offering Umrah packages from UK at lower costs. Such packages have helped many of the Muslims residing in the UK to fulfil their dream of performing the lesser pilgrimage without worrying about the costs involved.

In recent times, almost all the tour operators offering the Islamic religious tours of Hajj and Umrah have their own websites. Today, these sites can be accessed easily using smartphones as the websites have been made mobile-friendly by employing the latest technologies. As the internet has become cheaper than ever before, the country’s Muslims can easily search for suitable Umrah packages online. Upon making detailed comparisons between these packages, they can choose the one that suits their budget. However, they must verify whether the tour operator providing the package has been authorised by Saudi Arabia’s Ministry of Hajj before booking.

Those looking out for cheaper packages can reduce the costs involved in making their journey from their place of residence in the UK to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia by booking the desired Umrah packages well in advance. Upon booking their chosen package much earlier, they can have greater savings to be utilised for their journey. Before they make their bookings in advance, the country’s Muslims must first decide their departure date. After deciding a suitable date of departure, they must decide their duration of stay in Makkah. Once they are certain about the dates, they can go ahead with their booking.

For those who are not concerned about budgets, there are high-end packages offered by tour operators that include flights of the leading airlines and accommodations arranged in one of the elegant 5-star hotels of Makkah. Most of these hotels are located extremely close to the Masjid al-Haram, which gives the pilgrims greater convenience in visiting the holy mosque and performing the rituals of Umrah with complete peace of mind. The excellent facilities offered in such hotels would make their stay in Makkah pleasant and memorable. They can also visit the nearby markets and places of importance from such hotels without any hassles.

The cheap Umrah deals offered by the tour operators also reduce the cost of packages to a great extent.
