Umrah during the Ramadan

Umrah during the Ramadan.

Umrah during the Ramadan.
Umrah during the Ramadan has countless blessings and virtues. The holy month of Ramadan is immensely important to Muslims around the world who fast from morning to night and pray to Allah. Fasting in the month of Ramadan is one of the five pillars of Islam and is compulsory for all mature and healthy Muslims. Children, the elderly, and those suffering from illnesses, pregnant women, and nursing mothers are exempt from fasting. Muslims are also required to refrain from certain acts that displease Allah in seeking spiritual rewards.

Quran and Ramadan.

The Quran was also revealed in the month of Ramadan. It is undoubtedly the most important period of the year for any believing Muslim, during which every pious act or good deed is rewarded seventy times. The month of Ramadan is also the best time to make umrah. Let's discover together the advantages and benefits of the Umrah during the Ramadan.

1 Virtues of Umrah in the Month of Blessings.

Umrah, unlike Hajj, is not compulsory for Muslims, but nevertheless has major religious and spiritual significance. Indeed, it is an act of purification, one who performs Umrah with honest intention and a pure heart wins the greatest mercy of Allah. It is the highest form of Sunnah. It has been said that anyone who leaves his home with the intention of making an Umrah is a pilgrim until his return, and if he dies on the way, he will certainly enter in paradise.

2 The Importance of the Celebration.

Although it is not mandatory to perform Umrah, as it has countless blessings and virtues, most Muslims do not want to miss this opportunity. The focus remains on prayer, seeking blessings and forgiveness. Each bond or Sunnah is rewarded seventy times. Doing Umrah during Ramadan is truly a rewarding experience to see people from all over the world gathered to fast, to worship their creator.

3 Umrah is Equivalent to a Hajj with Prophet Muhammad.

عن ابن عباس رضي الله عنهما جاءت أم سليم إلى رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم فقالت: حج أبوطلحة وابنه وتركاني سلل عمرة في رمضان تعدل حجة معي
According to Ibn 'Abbas, Oum Souleym came to the Prophet (peace be upon him) and said: Abu Talha and are sons left to do hajj and they left me.
The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: “O Umm Souleym! An 'Umrah during the Ramadan is equivalent .to a hajj with me (*) ”.
That is to say that the person who makes an 'Umrah during the Ramadan obtains the same reward as a pilgrimage made with the Messenger of Allah (may the prayer of Allah and His salvation be upon him) but that does not mean that he will be exempt from making the pilgrimage which is the fifth pillar of Islam.
