Umrah is a prestigious journey for Muslims. For many it is once in a lifetime journey because of financial constraints. Therefore, pilgrims should try to perform this sacred journey with sincerity and humbleness.
Every year thousands of Muslims gather around the Holy Kaabah to perform Hajj and Umrah. Umrah is a journey which can be performed at any time of the year. Many Muslims perform Umrah every year. But the real essence of this journey lies in the submission to Allah SWT. We should realize that we are here performing this journey being guests of Allah and we should be thankful as much as we can. Had Allah SWT not invited us we wouldn’t have been here performing Umrah or Hajj. Moreover, keeping in mind that we are travellers we must care about our fellow Muslim brothers and sisters who are traveling along.
