Umrah is a pilgrimage to Makkah and Medina and this pilgrimage can be undertaken at any time of the year. These are religious sites allied with the life of Muhammad hence every Muslims will pay out a salat near Kaaba atleast once in their lifetime.
The vibes of umrah pull devotees out of their environment and put them amongst new environment. Umrah, on the other hand, is a completely different journey than these two because it is solely undertaken to please Almighty Allah.
From over decades, Muslims are performing this holy pilgrimage, as it is one of the most favorite deeds of Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala and his last Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him). It gives them an alternate stride, to set apart by both calming and hysterical ritual.
Let’s observe the spiritual divine feelings of devotees performing umrah near the Kaaba where they groove themselves into the claim.
1. A walk towards purification of soul
“Those who are merciful will be shown mercy by the Merciful. Be merciful to those on the earth and the One above the heavens will have forgiveness on you.” – Prophet Muhammad (PBUH)
To whip up for the eventual goal for Umrah, leave behind the vexatious intentions and practices. With an objective to accomplish the consent of Allah the Almighty and exploit the Divine favors, we should earnestly plan to play out our journey.We must make a special promise to Allah SWT that we will purify our souls and abandon our selfish yearnings.
2. Dedicating Yourself to almighty Allah
“He will indeed be successful who purifies it [his soul]” (al-Shams 91; 9)
While evacuating common dress to put Ihram, one should likewise expel everything other than Allah SWT from heart. One of the indications of giving our promise to the Almighty Allah and making earnest goal for the satisfaction of journey just for Allah SWT is to discard an extensive variety of interests in our heart like desire for wealth, acclaim, and rank.
3. To be physically and spiritually cleansed
Imparting the eventual outcomes of honest deeds performed during Umrah Prophet Muhammad PBUH expressed the reason for this sacred demonstration of worship as takes after:
“Combine the performance of Umrah (minor pilgrimage) and Hajj (major pilgrimage) , for they eliminate the sins just as the bellows eliminate rust from iron”.
(Nasai, Manasik, 6; Ibn Majah, Manasik, 3)
In Islam, the soul purification is the epitome of Islamic rituals and narrations that has given high importance by Allah Almighty. Hajj and Umrah is one such pillar of Islam that Muslim seeks merely for Allah’s pleasure to atone his sins and to acquire the desired level of purification that Allah wants for his followers to be distinguished at Resurrection day.
4. Throwing stones at the Devil and Satan inside us
You feel an emotional release. It is something that is not recreated anywhere else in the world. Throwing stones at the Devil initiates with stoning satan inside us. We must always ask questions to ourselves how much we are stoning our hesitations, mistakes, and doubts. The wonderful, satisfying and humbling experience will felt. You feel obedient to Allah!
Revive your belief and trust in Allah and the Last Prophet:Muhammed (PBUH) With 15 days Umrah packages, every Muslim can fulfill his dream of paying a visit to Mecca and Medina.
