Umrah and Hajj are the two worships that are performed in a sacred place of Islam known as Makkah. These two worships are most rewarding for the Muslim Ummah. Muslims always have a keen desire to perform these worships in the house of Allah Almighty by booking best travel packages for Hajj and Umrah by Umrah Experts. Muslims like to perform these two worships because these are performed in the places where our Holy Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH) used to perform worships. 


Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH) spent his whole life in Makkah and Madinah. He loved Makkah too much because Makkah was his birth place. When the enemies of Islam compelled him to leave Makkah and Allah ordered him to migrate to Madinah, he said to Makkah in these words that Makkah I love the most but people of Makkah are not letting me to stay here. They are compelling me to leave this place. From these words of Holy Prophet we guess the importance of Makkah in his life. He performed a single Hajj in his whole life. To see the places where Holy Prophet spent his life Muslims go to perform Hajj or Umrah in Makkah. 


Hajj and Umrah are the two different worships and they have some similar rituals. Rituals of Umrah are less than rituals of Hajj. Hajj is a big pilgrimage therefore pilgrims have to do some extra tasks in it. It has greater reward than Umrah but most of the Muslims like to perform Umrah because it can be performed in any month. While the Hajj has a specific time to be performed that is the month of Dhu al-Hajjah. In this month days are specific in which hajj is performed. Without these days Hajj cannot be performed. So Muslims choose to perform Umrah. 


On the other hand Umrah is cheaper than Hajj. Those Muslims who cannot perform Hajj due to insufficient money they choose to perform umrah because they wish to visit the sacred places of Islam. Umrah is more suitable for them as compared to Hajj. Hajj is expensive therefore most of the people cannot afford it. But it is compulsory for those who can afford its expenses and also support their family expenses when they are on a journey for Hajj. Umrah is not compulsory. 


Some tasks of Hajj are extra that are not in Umrah. These are: sacrificing the animal, throwing stones at Devil, going to Arafat, staying at Mina and Muzdalifah. These tasks are extra in Hajj. Umrah duration is shorter than Hajj. 


Although Umrah and Hajj both are different but they provide a chance to Muslims to see the most sacred places of Islam. It is the love of Makkah and Madinah that attracts Muslims to itself. Allah becomes happy when a Muslims visits the places that are most liked by Him in the whole world. 


Umrah is not compulsory on the other hand Hajj is compulsory. Those who have short incomes and have a desire to go to Makkah and Madinah but cannot afford Hajj, those can perform Umrah in lesser amount than Hajj. Most of the people book online tickets for cheap Hajj packages and Umrah through the companies like Islamic travel. These travel agencies provide you different kinds of packages. 


In Islam Muslims have been blessed with such worships that give them greater reward. The ummah’s before the Muslim Ummah used to perform the worships for many years and the reward for them was lesser. Their ages were long and they used to perform worships in their whole life. In this way they used to collect many blessing of Allah Almighty. But the ages of ummah of Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH) are very short therefore this Ummah is blessed with amazing blessings. Today Muslims perform Hajj and Umrah with Hajj Umrah travel agency that is great blessing. Importance of these two worships is explained here. It is the result of prayers of Holy Prophet for his Ummah. Many other worships are also blessings that have greater reward. 


Umrah is also one of those bigger worships. If seen deeply, every worship in Islam is the great worship. But performing Umrah provides greater reward to Muslims. During Umrah Muslims go to such places where Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH) lived his whole life and those places that have great importance in Islam. On the other hand Umrah has greater reward than other worships. It has great importance in the history of Muslims. Holy Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH) himself performed two Umrahs in his life. 


He showered the importance of Umrah upon Muslims. So Sahabas got ready to perform Umrah. Now many Muslims perform Umrah in every month. Hajj is performed in a specific time but Umrah has no specific time. It can be performed in any month. But if Umrah is performed in Ramadan it gives better reward. Many Muslims try to perform Umrah in Ramadan because Holy Prophet said that Umrah that is performed in Ramadan has a reward equal to Hajj. Choosing best package for your religious journey makes it secure. 


So to collect many extra blessings of Allah Almighty month of Ramadan is the best time to perform Umrah. The reward for Umrah multiplies in the month of Ramadan. Ramadan is considered as the season for collecting the blessings of Allah Almighty. One should go to perform Umrah in the month of Ramadan. But if you want to remain peaceful during whole process of Umrah you should choose the time after hajj. After performing Hajj there is no rush of people in Makkah and Madinah. 


One can easily perform Umrah in Muharram and Safar without facing any problem in worship. During other months there is rush of people. A person gets confused in rush of people. If you are with family and small children or old parents are with you, you should choose the time after Hajj for Umrah. In this way you will be able to kiss the black stone easily. No one will be there to disturb you or interpret your doings. And other thing you should keep in mind that you should book your Umrah packages two or three months before going for Umrah because you get a time to prepare yourself completely for Umrah.
