Must-Visit Places When going for Umrah Trip

Posted by Ady on November 21st, 2019

Going for an Umrah trip is a desire of every Muslim. The major reason being, to perform the sunnah of our beloved Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH) and see the holy cities of Makkah and Madinah where Islam originated. The most sacred place in Makkah is obviously the Masjid-al-Haram, The Kaabah, and in Madinah, Masjid-al-Nabawi. Performing salah at both of these mosques is a compulsion when on an Umrah. However, there are a lot of other holy sites that also possess religious significance. People not only go there to fulfill and perform the rituals of Umrah but also for ZIyarath. Usually, all these Ziyarah are included in the umrah cost per person if you are going through a certified travel agency.

Here are some of the must-visit places when going for Umrah trip.


Masjid-al-Haram is located in Makkah and surrounds Kabbah. This is the place where Muslims start the journey of Umrah. They offer prayers here and do Tawaf.

Masjid-al-Nabawi is situated in Madinah. It’s the resting place of our beloved Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH). Not only, coming here and performing salah is a compulsion during umrah but also a dream of all the Muslims. To see the Roza-e-Rasool and send prayers to him by reciting Darood Sharif.

Jabal al-Nour.

The Cave of Thawr.

The cave of Thawr finds great importance in the heart of Muslims for its contribution to Islam. This is the cave where Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) took refuge in when he was being targeted and chased by the kufaar while coming to Madinah.

Jannat al-Mu'alla (Makkah) and Jannat ul-Baqi (Madinah).

These are the holy graveyards where the close companions of Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH) are resting in peace. The Sahabaas (RA), martyrs of Uhud, family members of Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH) and heroes of Islam are residing there.

Mount Arafat.

Mount Arfah holds huge importance in Islam. Located in Makkah, this is the mountain where Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH) stood and delivered the Farewell Sermon to the Muslims accompanying him during Hajj. It’s the place where Hazrat Adam (AS) and Hazrat Hawa (AS) reunited on Earth and where Adam (AS) was forgiven by Allah Almighty. It’s also the place where all the people would gather on the day of Qayamat.

Masjid Al Quba.

Masjid Al Quba is the mosque where Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH) stayed after his arrival in Madinah. Founded by the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) himself, the mosque indicated that Islam had been properly established in Madinah.
