The ʿUmrah is a journey to Mecca, Saudi Arabia, performed by Muslims that can be attempted whenever of the year, as opposed to the Hajj. In Arabic, Umrah signifies “to visit a populated spot”. In the Sharia, Umrah intends to perform Tawaf round the Kaaba and Sa’i between Al-Safa and Al-Marwah, in the wake of expecting Ihram (a holy state), either from a Miqat like Zu ‘l-Hulafa, Juhfa, Qarnu ‘l-Manāzil, Yalamlam, Zāt-i-‘Irq, Ibrahīm Mursīa, or a spot in Slope. It is in some cases called the ‘minor journey’ or ‘lesser journey’, the Hajj being the “real” journey and which is obligatory for each healthy Muslim who can manage the cost of it. The Umrah is not necessary but rather exceedingly prescribed.
