The Concept of Umrah in Islam

An insight to Umrah

Umrah is an Arabic word that implies visit, which in Islamic terms implies visiting the place of God. This visit can be played out throughout the entire year instead of Hajj, which must be acted in the Holy month of Ramadan and is known as the more meaningful journey. The procedure of Umrah comprises of four columns, which incorporate ihram, tawaf, sayi, and tahalul.

The procedure incorporates showing up in Meeqat and wear the ihram for men and making the intention of Umrah for ladies as they would as of now be in niqaab, at that point do the tawaf of the place of God, Kaabah where if pioneers can, they can touch the black stone. On the off chance that travelers cannot touch the black stone, they should face it and point towards it. Additionally, the Kaabah ought to consistently be on the left of the pilgrim when playing out the tawaf. From that point onward, the traveler ought to go to Safa's hill and travel towards the hill of Marwa and complete seven circuits of this excursion. From that point forward, both the people trim their hair; nonetheless, shaving of heads is favored for men, though trimming a couple of strands of hair for ladies is liked. The Umrah is presently finished, and the men can remove their ihram.

Understanding the need for travel agents

All things considered, it is justifiable that Muslims from everywhere throughout the world go to these holy urban communities to play out this holy journey; in this way, consistent arranging and sorting out must be performed to ensure the trip flows smoothly. That being said, disarray may emerge even then. For example, hotel bookings might not come through and might result in chaos at the last minute; there may be confusion regarding tickets, etc.

It is a direct result of this that many travel agencies have begun offering cheap Umrah packages for clients to benefit from. These Umrah bundles contain all the appointments and transportation prerequisites that a pilgrim would require when playing out the journey. Most bundles incorporate return tickets, an Umrah visa, lodging appointments, and courses of action in terms of transport.

The Umrah visa process

Travel agencies and their cheap Umrah packages have more or less reduced the worry related to traveling; however, obtaining an Umrah visa is still essential for the pilgrim to follow through. The best approach is to acquire it through a travel agent. Simply fill out and sign the visa form, which attaches a recent and colorized passport-sized picture of the pilgrim in front of a white background, facing forward and at a right angle. Also, the applicant should have a valid passport with at least six months left to expire. Lastly, the airline tickets should also be attached with the form. 

The Umrah visa will remain valid for 14 days; the applicant must perform the Umrah and leave Saudi Arabia within these fourteen days.
