Umrah is Sunnat-e-Mu’akidah, Umrah is neither imperative nor obligatory, but for Muslims performing the Umrah at least once in a life time is Sunnat Mu’akidah. Once or more than once, whenever it is performed, it carries great rewards. There is no fixed time day and month for the performance of Umrah as it is for Hajj, it can be performed any time one desires. Performing Umrah is quite easier now by the help of Umrah Packages from UK. You can take a Cheap Umrah Package also if you feel that’s convenient for you. The station of Ahram (Miqat) for Umrah for the residents of Mecca and the people of Hill, is Hill. The area between the five appointed Miqats of Hajj and the bounds of the Haram of Mecca is called Hill. The outsiders who come to Mecca for Hajj and Umrah should already be in Ahram before entering into Mecca. However, for subsequent Umrahs, even they have to go to Hill to put on Ahram. For this purpose, buses outside Bab Abdul Aziz of al-Haram take pilgrims to Masjid Aai’sha which is in Hill on Madinah Road at Tan’eem, not far from Mecca. The Umrah packages 2015 from UK have already been offered by many travel agents and companies as well. They give you a complete guide to your Holy destination.
The only rites of Umrah are: Entering the state of Ihram, Tawaf of Ka’bah, Sa’yee between the hills of Safa and Marwah and Shaving or clipping of the hair. In Umrah, pilgrims do not go to Mina, Arafat and Muzdalifa or throw pebbles on the Jamrahs (stone pillars representing devils) or offer animal sacrifice. These rites are performed during Hajj.
