Posted by Ady Grewal on November 19th, 2019

Every Muslim fancy to visit the holy places of Makkah and Madinah to perform Hajj, at last, once in its life. Hajj is not only a sunnah but also the 5th pillar of Islam. However, not everyone is financially strong enough to fulfill the religious obligation that’s why Allah made Hajj compulsory for a Muslim if he/she is wealthy enough to bear the expenses of pilgrimage. Yet, almost all of the Muslims, manage to perform Umrah. Although it’s not a religious obligation but a ‘Nafli Ibadat’ but includes all the necessary rituals. Like, Visiting the holy sites for Ziarat, offering prayers in Makkah and Madinah and Doing Tawaaf and Sa’i. While on the other hand, it is affordable to a majority. A reason why every Muslim travel agency also offers umrah packages all-inclusive for the facilitation of Muslims all around the world.

How important the journey of Umrah really is for a Muslim? Let’s find out here.

It’s Sunnah.

Our beloved Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH) himself performed Umrah 4 times. This statement is independently sufficient enough to let the Muslims know about the importance of Umrah in Islam. As said earlier, Umrah is not a religious obligation but a sunnah of our beloved Prophet (PBUH). That’s how Umrah finds great significance in the life of Muslims.

Strengthens Imaan.

Umrah is the perfect opportunity for a Muslim to strengthen its Imaan. Engrossed completely in its busy life, when a Muslim begins the journey of Umrah, finds itself more spiritually strong and closer to the Almighty. Therefore, it’s a perfect place to seek forgiveness from Allah Almighty and pray for the blessings for one’s success in the Duniya and hereafter.

It offers the opportunity to experience the places where Islam Started.

The religion of truth and peace, Islam started from Makkah and Madinah. First-ever verses of the Holy Quran were also revealed to the Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH) on ‘Laylat-al-Qadr’ at the ‘Cave of Hira’ in Makkah. Therefore, both the cities hold a great spiritual and holy value for Muslims. Umrah enables you to go for Ziarat of such places.

Refreshes and Purifies one’s mind and body.

Umrah refreshes and purifies the heart, mind, soul, and body of a Muslim. Its importance can be estimated from the fact that when a Muslim return from umrah, Allah almighty forgives all the sins of that person. Therefore, umrah allows a Muslim to repent on its sins, do ‘Islaah’ and get a fresh start. A start of life where it instills in its personality gratitude, compassion, love, and forgiveness for the others.

Is rewarding both in Duniya and Akhirah:

Umrah provides a Muslim with countless benefits. Benefits that are rewarding both in Duniya and Akhirah. Allah Almighty blesses such a person to start over his life. One’s sins are also forgiven.
