Umrah is a lesser form of Hajj pilgrimage and remains one of the most delightful Sunnah of our beloved Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (SAWW). Every year, millions of Muslims gather in the holy city of Makkah to perform Umrah. Since Umrah’s performance does not have any specific time; one can perform it all around the year.
Umrah is a spiritual voyage towards Allah Almighty and he surely gives great rewards to the people who perform it with pure intentions and great zeal. Here are some of the rewards of performing Umrah.
Guest of Allah Almighty.
The thought of being a guest of the creator of this whole universe; Allah Almighty who is the Supreme, gives shivers. Nonetheless, it is the most beautiful feeling in the world that one could ever feel on a spiritual level. One can hardly imagine the blessings of Allah Almighty when he/she becomes His guest. Indeed, he is the best host. Hence, Allah Almighty surely rewards the pilgrims with whatever they desire. As narrated in the Hadith of Hazrat Muhammad (SAWW);
(description) The guests of Allah are three; The Ghazi i.e. the warrior who fights in Jihad, the Hajji i.e. the pilgrim performing Hajj, and the Mu’tamir i.e. the pilgrim performing Umrah.
Equivalent Reward of Jihad.
In Islam, the importance of Jihad and the amazing rewards it holds for believers have been told plenty of times. Jihad has infinitely many types and the reward of Jihad is martyrdom; an act of devotion and great love. It can be your fight against cruelty by hand, by ink, by speech, or even by your behavior. The same is the case with the performance of Umrah. As narrated in the hadith of Hazrat Muhammad (SAWW);
(description) Jihad of the elderly people, the young, the weak, and the women is the performance of Hajj and Umrah.
Removal of Poverty and Sins.
Though Umrah’s performance isn’t obligatory for any believer of Islam, it’s considered superior if one performs it with true intentions and passion. For every Muslim who is financially, mentally as well as physically capable of it, it’s advised to perform hajj and then at least an Umrah in its lifetime. Why? Because umrah is a sunnah ibadah but the bounties that it holds for pilgrims are no less than that of Fardh Hajj.
In other words, when a person spends from its wealth in the righteous path in order to please Allah Almighty, he surely rewards with Barakah in wealth, health, and life. As narrated in the Hadith of Hazrat Muhammad (SAWW);
(description) One must perform Hajj and Umrah consecutively because they remove poverty and sins for a person just like hollers remove impurity from iron.
