02 February 2024

“When one door closes, another opens.”

That’s a beautiful reality of life that every person faces at least once or more than once in their lifetimes. Being a Muslim we have strong faith in the oneness of Allah, there's no supreme power other than His and we believe He protects us all and helps us in dire situations. People often wonder, how would they know that they are in good books of Almighty? It’s simple, we look for clues. Numerous events are happening at a time all around. Some are facing serious concerns while others are as happy as a newborn. Know this, every person is blessed uncountable times in their lifetimes. But when it comes to holy obligations we all want to perform Hajj and Umrah. This is like an Oscar for Muslims. The best opportunity to ask Allah for His forgiveness. And when Allah bestows his blessing you get to visit the holy place of Makkah and Medina. It's every Muslims’ dream come true. To pray, eat, sleep and spend their precious moments in Haram. There are many travel agencies offering exclusive Umrah packages to attract Muslim pilgrims. It’s our holy duty to perform Hajj and Umrah. Travel agencies help us achieve our goals.

Note: fake agents can easily con travellers, make sure to go by credible means.

  Muslims are allowed to perform Umrah at any time in year. It's best to avail Umrah packages when they are offering discounts! Performing Umrah offseason is the relatively best way to go for your first time as it won't be too much crowded like other time of the year.

Importance of Umrah

As you all know, Umrah is one of our holy duties we are obligated to perform, it guides us in a unique way. From a religious point of view Umrah as various benefits as well.

  1. Invitation by High Authority

No matter how rich or poor you are, it wouldn’t matter how much of an effort you are doing to perform Umrah, it won’t succeed as long as it’s not the right time for you. Look at it as a special invitation by the High Authority. You guess that right; Allah is the one granting us all the wishes than how come He will not accept our request for performing Umrah? Being a guest of Allah is once a lifetime experience for you and obviously, you should take full advantage of performing Umrah. You leave everything behind only to quench your thirst of being as near to Allah as possible. Only He can grant us this wish.

  1. No more Poverty

Every Muslim around the corners of the world want to perform Umrah at least once in their lifetimes. Sometimes the poor are more blessed when they see the boasting architecture of Kaaba being the sole Qibla for all Muslims, than the rich. Allah wills that performing Umrah extinguishes your poverty present in any form, be it a financial concern or a domestic one, it doesn’t matter. It will resolve all your problems and only leave calm water behind.

  1. Jihad and Umrah

Allah Almighty is most forgiving and most gracious of all. Islam entails high importance Jihad. Imagine what if will be like if Allah can forgive all your greatest sins and how much will he shower you with His blessing for those who fight in His name? However, jihad is not all about going to war. It can be done by pen (writing and pursuing the right guideline) and by the tongue (following right words of action in way of Allah). For weak, young (children) and for old age people, Umrah is a way of jihad too. leaving the curious belittling life and walking in Haram is equivalent to it all.

  1. Renewal of Faith

With our busy lives, revolving around our daily chores, somehow we forget about our duties towards Allah. It’s unfortunate, for any Muslim to forget. When you want inner peace, go into Saju’d and pray with all your heart. Might be the time your prayer for an invitation for Umrah is granted by Allah. Fulfilling obligations leads to a renewal of faith and your actual self. Our humane desires are the cages that take us far from our roots, but Umrah reminds us what we forgot and hence helps to move on with a fresh piece of mind ad soul, together. Keeping this importance of Umrah in mind travel agencies OFFER various Umrah packages. Either its UK or any other country they understand and respect the decision of their Muslim customers. If you want to travel via a travel agency, make sure to get your facts straight before jumping into the pool. Here are some tips to remember by when planning for Umrah: Visa validity – make sure you have enough time left on your visa before it gets expired.

It's prescribed to renew a visit (just precautionary measure) to avoid any last minute problem with Umrah authorities. Trackers app – use of tracking app can be a lot helpful than you originally can imagine. Your mobile phone is the best tracker device if allowed to use the app, it harbors a safe zone for the pilgrims, in case it gets too much crowded and you do get lost (hopefully not) then it can be helpful and locate your last location you inserted. Umrah packages – going offseason for Umrah is best and convenient. Choose Umrah packages with discount offers and if possible in a larger group (the more people means more reduction in charges/pp). Medical aid – keep a medical kit with you at all times. Small enough to fit inside your money belt, this precaution is the basic survival tip. Keep Vaseline, band-aids and essential medicines you feel you can come in need of. It's good to carefully pack before heading for Umrah. Advance bookings – when you get your discounted Umrah packages, make sure to discuss all the details with the travelling agency. Booking of hotels at a convenient distance is must, it will save your time and energy. Performing Umrah is not only a religious duty but also a choice we make for ourselves. Always remember to pray for everyone you encounter. Who knows which prayer may come true in an instant?
