In Islam, there are two most important rituals that are Hajj and Umrah. Have you known these two properly? So, let us discuss here.
Hajj becomes one of the necessary obligations in Islam for Muslims as it is also included in the pillars of Islam. It depends on the ability of a person, if he is financially strong then he is able to fulfil their Hajj obligation as soon as possible. Meanwhile, the Hajj pilgrimage makes their obligatory duties at the month of Dha-ul-hijjah. It’s about total five days are included in the Hajj duties.
On the other hand, those whose capacity level is not much as well as their pocket is not providing permission to fulfil the Hajj pilgrimage, they choose small pilgrimage. There are only a few differences, the procedures and implementations are almost the same. In Sunnah, Umrah and Hajj have its own values. The implementations of Umrah can be done any time of the year, instead of the month of Hajj. Performing Umrah also have the reasons of getting Allah’s attentions. Well, here are some benefits of Umrah.
Jihad For Women
Jihad is one of the best ways to get the attention of Allah Almighty. Those who are in the path of Jihad, Allah promise to provide heaven in return. Our beloved prophet (PBUH) said, the culmination of Islam is jihad. Meanwhile, in the jihad, every participant has its own role, whether it is male or female. Meanwhile, Hajj and Umrah is the jihad for a woman.
Erased Person Sins
Umrah has many benefits, whereas one of the benefits include raising the person’s sins. If a person performs Umrah then he will return like a newborn baby. Someone who perform Umrah with full intention than a few years, he performed Umrah again, his sins in days from the first Umrah to the second Umrah will be forgiven by Allah SWT. In one Hadith, it is said, an Umrah to another Umrah is the way of abolishing sin, and a person will get the reward of heaven.
Get The Reward Of Heaven
In connection with the first point, Umrah is a jihad of women. So Allah Almighty promises to anyone (both male and female) who runs the Umrah with sincerity of heart then he will get heaven in return. In one hadith, it is explained the same thing that the Umrah pilgrimage would be given the privilege of heaven’s reward.
Kept Away From Poverty
Some people delay performing Umrah because of high costs. Maybe the fear of saving money becomes depleted or still in doubt that many virtues are to distance poverty. Umrah does not make us destitute or poor. Precisely by performing Umrah, Allah will sustenance your money and flow smoothly. As the word of the Prophet (PBUH), Umrah pilgrimage eliminates poverty and sins as burning removes rust on iron, gold, and silver. While there is no reward for the hajj except heaven.
Getting The Peace Of Mind
In addition to gaining wealth and abundance of blessing, it’s essential to perform Umrah with full peace of mind. Someone, who fulfill the Umrah obligation with the purity of heart get more calm and sincerity from Allah. Meanwhile, Hajj and Umrah eliminate bad intentions with the realization of sufficient assets.
Get A Reward Of Prayers Greater Up To 1000 Thousand Times
Usually, we get one reward when we offer our five-time prayer. Unlike the prayer in the holy land during the Hajj or Umrah, the reward is multiplied. The reward of praying in the Masjid-e-Nabwi can be worth 1,000 times, while in the Haram Masjid 100,000 times. You can imagine, the extraordinary benefits in the primacy of prayer in the holy land. It’s quite challenging to collect such an instant reward. So, if you want to double or triple the compensation then perform Hajj and Umrah, once in your lifetime.
Get More Blessing From Allah
If the Umrah is carried out uniquely through purity of heart, then the worship can become devout worship. Allah will accept the religion that is kept with the purity of heart. So, perform Umrah because this act can double the intention for intense, get a hidden blessing from Allah, reward of heaven and removing sins.
Become A Special Guest Of Allah SWT
When someone visits to the house of Allah SWT in the holy land, he is considered a special guest of Allah. Don’t you think it is sweet? At one point it is said that Allah Almighty will grant what we ask, also forgive our sins and intercession for the asking. Therefore, before leaving there, let us purify our heart first. Through this, we can become the best guests of Allah Almighty.
Umrah In Ramadan Is Equal To Hajj
The Prophet (PBUH) said a person perform Umrah in Ramadan then the reward is equivalent to Hajj. Another hadith narrated, Indeed Umrah in the month of Ramadan is like a pilgrimage with me.
However, the pilgrimage cannot be replaced with an Umrah because the legal pilgrimage is obligatory for Muslims who can do it.
Teach The Meaning Of Being Patient
Another lesson that we can get from Umrah is increasing patience. As we know that performing Umrah is not easy, you have to fulfill some obligations. Additionally, you have to strong mentally as well as physically. When we are in the scared world, we meet millions of people.
Our worship becomes the worth of reward when you are patient.
Increase Faith Of A Person
Umrah becomes the priority because it increases faith and patients. Generally, someone who has visited the Masjid-e-Haram (the house of Allah), his faith and believe will increase automatically. A pilgrimage also seeks to improve his devotion by improving worship, such as prayer, fasting, and regarding behavior.
These are some specific benefits of Umrah, regarding religion, social, behavior and sustenance. If you want to perform Umrah then consider Rehman Tours and book your Umrah Package 2019 today. So your Umrah becomes the most rememberable worship.
