The holy journey of Umrah

Indeed, as-Safa and al-Marwah are among the symbols of Allah. So whoever makes Hajj to the House or performs 'umrah - there is no blame upon him for walking between them. And whoever volunteers good - then indeed, Allah is Appreciative and Knowing. (Baqara,158)

It was narrated from (Bukhari, Muslim): Allah’s Messenger (peace be upon him) said, “One Umrah is an expiation for the sins committed between it and another Umrah.”

In Arabic, the word ‘Umrah is derived from I‘timaar which means a visit. It is sometimes called the minor pilgrimage, the Hajj being the major pilgrimage and which is compulsory for every Muslim who can afford it. It can be undertaken any time in the year, except for the five days of Hajj, in contrast to the Hajj. There are four pillars of Umrah which are Ihram, Tawaf, and Sa’i.

The Umrah is placed at a level of spiritual purity for the Muslims. It is neither directly or imperatively, an obligation for the Muslims, but it is a Sunnat-e-muwaqada for them. A holy act which the Prophet Mohammed (peace be upon him) performed twice in his lifetime. It apparently resembles the Hajj, which is because a prior Umrah accompanies every Hajj.

The rituals and blessings of the Umrah are endless for the Muslims. It is the act which purifies the spirit, the soul of the Muslim. The immense credit of the Umrah, drag the Muslims from the corners of the globe to Masjid al-Haram.
