Blessings of performing Umrah during the month of Ramadan

Hadith on Umrah during Ramadan

Al Bukhaari and Muslim narrated that Ibn ‘Abbaas said:

The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said to a woman from among the Ansaar – Ibn ‘Abbaas mentioned her name but I forgot it – “What kept you from performing Hajj with us?” She said: “We only have two camels and the father of her son and her son had gone for Hajj on one camel, and he left us the other camel so that we could carry water on it.”

He said: “When Ramadan comes, go for Umrah,  for Umrah in (that month) is equivalent to Hajj.”

As per this narration “Hadith” Umrah is best performed in Ramadan. As the rewards are equal to that of Hajj. When the pilgrim returns from Hajj, all his sins are omitted and he starts again with a clean slate. However, performing Umrah in Ramadan doesn’t discharge one of the Hajj obligations. Both become equivalent in rewards but not in fulfilling the duty. Umrah is not obligatory whereas Hajj is compulsory for every Muslim if the person is capable of performing it.

Greater rewards

Every good deed performed in Ramadan, including Umrah, is rewarded manifold as compared to other months. The spiritual heights attained during Umrah in this holy month are splendidly magnified.

Spiritual renewal

Both Ramadan and Umrah are powerful means of seeking forgiveness for sins and purifying the soul. Engaging in these sacred acts together intensifies this purification process.

Deeper connection

Going through the rituals of Umrah while fasting intensifies one’s consciousness of Allah, encouraging a deeper connection and devotion.

Unity and brotherhood

Performing Umrah in Ramadan also allows pilgrims to experience a sense of profound unity and brotherhood, as numerous Muslims from around the world converge at the holy sites.

Performing Umrah during Ramadan is undoubtedly a spiritually elevating journey that promises untold divine rewards. This sacred fusion instills a sense of tranquility and deepens one’s faith, serving as a beacon of spiritual growth.

Though the journey might pose certain challenges, the spiritual benefits and rewards vastly outweigh them, making every striving worthwhile. As you plan your Umrah journey, consider the holy month of Ramadan and experience the magnified spirituality it grants, In sha Allah.
