Umrah is an Islamic pilgrimage to Mecca that can be undertaken at any time of the year, unlike Hajj, which has specific dates in the Islamic calendar. While Hajj is one of the five pillars of Islam and is compulsory for every able-bodied Muslim who can afford it, Umrah is a recommended but non-mandatory pilgrimage.
Umrah involves performing a set of religious rituals, including Tawaf (circumambulation) around the Kaaba in the Grand Mosque of Mecca, as well as Sa’i (walking) between the hills of Safa and Marwah. The pilgrimage can be completed in a few hours compared to Hajj, which takes several days and has more specific rituals.
Many Muslims undertake Umrah to seek spiritual rewards and blessings, aiming to cleanse themselves from sin and seek closeness to Allah. It is considered a significant act of worship in Islam. Those who embark on the journey often enter a state of Ihram (a sacred state) and observe certain restrictions and practices during the pilgrimage.
Umrah can be performed at any time of the year, and it is not obligatory, but it holds spiritual significance for those who undertake it.
