Even though Umrah is not compulsory like the Hajj visit, it is highly recommend that every able Muslim must perform Umrah. Known as the minor “Hajj”, Umrah is a journey that enriches soul and cleanses one’s soul from past committed sins.
Unlike Hajj, Umrah can be performed any time of the year except for the five days of Hajj, in which it is not considered suitable to perform Umrah. When you start a journey for Umrah, you will be considered as pilgrim till you reach your home. It is a soulful journey that requires the pilgrim to perform Tawaf round the Kaaba and Sa'i between Al-Safa and Al-Marwah, after assuming Ihram (a sacred state), either from a Miqat like Zu 'l-Hulafa, Juhfa, Qarnu 'l-Manāzil, Yalamlam, Zāt-i-'Irq, Ibrahīm Mursīa,.
It is recommended that Umrah should be performed multiple times in a life. Since, it can be performed anytime of the year, it is vital that you take some time out to do something as pure as Umrah.
