Importance Sacred City Makkah And Cheap Umrah Packages

Umrah

In addition to prayer, a pilgrimage to Makkah is required of every able Muslim who can afford it as one of the Five Pillars of the belief. Every year about three million of people gathered for the major pilgrimage, or Hajj, during the Muslim month of Zil-Hijjah, and many more perform the minor or lesser pilgrimage Umrah, at various times throughout the whole year.

Few non-Muslims have ever seen the rituals and rites of the Hajj, as non-Muslims are strictly forbidden from entering city Makkah and Madina. Roadblocks are stationed along roads leading to the city.

The focal point of Makkah is the Holy Kaaba, the “House of ALLAH Almighty” believed by Muslims to have been built by Hazrat Ibraheem (AS) and His son Hazrat Ismaeel (AS), and which is covered in a gold-embroidered black coloured fabric. Pilgrims circle the Holy Kaaba seven times called tawaaf and may also try to kiss or touch its cornerstone, the Hajr-e-Aswad (Black Stone). Pilgrims may drink Zamzam water from the well of Zamzam. Its water of Zamzam is believed to have extraordinary and special properties. Pilgrims return from the Hajj or Umrah with a large plastic bottle of Zamzam water. During the Hajj pilgrims travel to Mina a little village, where the Devil (shaitaan), symbolised by 3 stone columns, is ritually stoned. They then proceed to the hill of Arafat (sometimes well known as mountain, but with a height of only 70 m), a place for prayers, where Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) is believed to have delivered His final sermon.

The Masjid al Haram (Sacred Mosque) is for Muslims the holiest masjid on Earth. Both the masjid and the city itself are strictly off limits to non-Muslims.

Verse 3:96 of Holy Quran,

Indeed, the first House [of worship] established for mankind was that at Makkah – blessed and a guidance for the worlds.

Makkah is the sacred city which is the most beloved land in the sight of ALLAH Almighty and the selected location of His House. It was here that the final prophet and guide of the entire of mankind, Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of ALLAH be on him), was born and commenced His Prophethood.

In the time of the Prophet (peace and blessings of ALLAH be on him), camel caravans were a most important part of Makkah’s busy economy. Alliances were struck between the merchants in city Makkah and the local travelling tribes, who would bring goods livestock, leather and metals mined in the local mountains to city Makkah to be loaded on the caravans and carried to cities in Iraq and Syria. Historical accounts also provide several indications that goods from other continents may also have flowed through sacred city Makkah.

Umrah

Every year millions of Muslims from around the world visit Makkah for performing sacred pilgrimage Hajj and Umrah. Muslim do tawaaf (circumambulation) most sacred site of Islam, the cube shaped Holy Kaaba located in the city Makkah of Saudi Arabia, and all pilgrims together take part in a series of prescribed rites and rituals with intention to bring about greater unity and humility among all pilgrims.

Umrah is not obligatory to perform but in religion Islam performing umrah has great importance, the Hajj is obligatory to perform and this is also the pillar of Islam, all able-bodied Muslims who are financially and physically afford to perform minor or major pilgrimage are required to perform at least once in their whole life. Pilgrimages are great opportunity to wipe out and clean past committed sins and start new life by spending life in righteous way. With pilgrimages Muslims deepen their faith, and start living virtuous life.

Hajj and Umrah both required lots of physical efforts and challenges but Hajj requires more effort than Umrah. Going to Makkah and perform pilgrimage is a dream of every Muslim, many people are financially able to afford pilgrimage more than once and other save their salary and earnings throughout their life to make the sacred journey. Muslims believe that the faith of Hazrat Ibraheem (AS) and Pilgrims trace the path of Wife of Hazrat Ibraheem (AS) Bibi Hajra, who ran between two hills of Safa and Marwa seven times for searching some water for her infant baby Hazrat Ismaeel (AS).

Islamic tradition holds that ALLAH Almighty then provided Her with a spring that runs till now. That blessed water, known as the Zamzam water and that well is well of Zamzam. Water of zamzam is blessed water and it is believed that it possesses great healing powers and when pilgrims return back to their homes after performing pilgrimage they bring with bottles filled with zamzam water as gifts for their friends, family members, relatives and their closed ones.

Islamic tradition tells us that the Holy Kaaba was built by Hazrat Ibraheem (AS) and His Son Hazrat Ismaeel (AS), The House of ALLAH Almighty.

Some advices to carry during pilgrimage:

  • Pilgrims are advised to cover their mouth and nose by using tissue paper while sneezing or coughing
  • Do not touch your eyes, mouth and nose and without washing your hands because there is danger to be attacked by germs and bacteria
  • Wash your hand before eating anything

FORMS OF CHARITY

Form Charity

Charity has great importance in religion Islam, charity is an act of giving out to the people in their need and also the whole society at large. Charity can be done in the form of goods, money, food or even simple act of passing smile and spending time with those people who are in need your guidance in any form. Life is uncertain and never offers equal opportunities for everyone; but charity is something through which we can share our blessings with those people who are less fortunate and thus we bring balance in the society.

Islam is the religion of Peace that strongly advocates Charity (Sadaqah or Zakaat). ALLAH Almighty has made Zakaat an obligation on every financial able Muslim. Holy Quran and Sunnah put emphasis greatly on charity through many verses in Holy Quran and Hadith. The Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) presented many examples of giving charity in His lifetime and thus it is compulsory on every able Muslims to follow the path.

It is said that charity should not be done for the purpose of show off but rather it must be kept secret that no one should be aware of the charity you giving even your left hand should not be aware of the charity that you are giving out with your right hand. Secrecy is the basic element and it should be kept when doing charity for two reasons. Firstly, charity is done only for ALLAH Almighty and not to show off to the world your good deeds and wealth, and secondly to not hurt the honour and respect of the person being given the charity.

Zakaat is an obligatory charity that is done in the month of Holy Ramadan but Sadaqah is voluntary act of charity. Sadaqah does not necessarily mean giving money or wealth but it is any simple act of Kindness towards others those human or even animal benefits from. Sadaqah in way of ALLAH Almighty removes difficulty from someone’s life or path as well as it is considered Sadaqah to just pass smile at someone or just offering a Salaam. Being kind and generous to animals and taking care is also a charity.

Offering water to any thirsty person or to help anyone in their need all are considered Sadaqah and all these small acts are rewarded by ALLAH Almighty. Giving anything in way of ALLAH Almighty is considered as Charity. We can conclude easily now that charity is essence of religion Islam and that is why it has great importance in lives of Muslim. It helps building a very strong society where the flow of wealth among the members of society is equal and basic human rights and needs are met.

For Muslims, religion Islam is a complete belief system with practical and moral laws that are described in the Holy Quran for all human beings. The Holy Quran, for all the Muslim living in any corner of the world, is the irrefutable, inimitable Word of ALLAH Almighty.

It was revealed by ALLAH Almighty on Prophet Muhammad (peace be Upon Him) through angel Hazrat Jibraeel (AS). The Holy Quran was revealed in Arabic language on Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) over a time period of twenty-three years. It is composed in a very unique style, The Holy Quran is inimitable; it can not be copied or simulated, and it can’t be changed or edited because ALLAH Almighty Himself took the responsibility of securing Holy Quran.

Social Guidelines:

In Holy Quran, there are instructions about all the aspects of social system. Holy Quran tells us the way a perfect Muslim society should be like, how should all the members of the society behave and treat with each other, what are the rights of the relatives and neighbours, why should every Muslim show humbleness and kindness to all the members of society and how they should exhibit and make unity among themselves to face hard times and stand strong in the face of adversity.

Economic Guidelines:

In Holy Quran there are all sorts of knowledge and instructions regarding economic system. It speaks about abhorrence and prohibition of usury, it gives the clear concept of Zakat, it talks about paying charity to poor and needy, it tells us about the importance of being honest, truthful and right in measuring goods and honouring and respecting the commitment and so on. Ergo, when a Muslim ponders over the understanding the meanings of the words he recites, he or she finds proper economic guidelines and assistance on the basis of which a new economic system could be developed for the well being of all the peoples.

Political Guidelines:

In Holy Quran, there are also instructions and indications about the political system of a good society as well as the responsibility of the government of state and how a government should develop and adopt a political system in society, which works completely for the well being of the all members of the society.

PUNISHMENT FOR CHEATER AND LIAR IN ISLAM

Punishment in Islam

Verse 24:8 of Holy Quran,
But it will prevent punishment from her if she gives four testimonies [swearing] by ALLAH that indeed, he is of the liars.

Deception and Cheating and are wicked characteristics that can devalue decent person.  Intentionally hide the truth just to mislead other peoples contradicts the values of honesty which requires behaviour of sincerity, straightforwardness, truthfulness and fairness that leaves no space for cheating, fraud, lying, deceit or trickery.  There are many verses from the Holy Quran conveying the message that cheating, fraud whether the target be non-Muslims or Muslims is completely forbidden.

Accepting the guidance of religion Islam leads a person to righteousness, truthfulness, which means every person should completely, avoids cheating, fraud and back-stabbing etc. Muslim community is based on purity of love, feeling, sincerity towards all Muslim, and fulfilment of promises to every single member of society.  Muslim community members are endowed with faithfulness, truthfulness and piety. Deception and Cheating are evil characters in contrast to the noble character.  In Islam there is no room in it for double crossers, swindlers, tricksters, or traitors.

Verse 11:85 of Holy Quran,
And O my people, give full measure and weight in justice and do not deprive the people of their due and do not commit abuse on the earth, spreading corruption.

According to the Islamic views about cheating and deception, these are wicked sins and a source of shame for the person who commits them both in this world and also hereafter.  The shame of traitors either men or women will be huge.  Those people who thought that their betrayal and fraud had been forgotten it is not true but his fraud soon or later exposed for the whole world. A person should clear of all the various forms of deceit and deception that are present in today’s society.

Cheating is the most commonly found in every society in the face of examinations, business transactions, and even between loved ones, siblings and spouses.  Placing a label on any domestically-made products to make and show that it is imported product is also a kind of fraud.  Some people give wrong and bad advice when their council is needed. Therefore, a true Muslim who has real Islamic sensitivities and values must avoids deceit, cheating, fraud, treachery, and lying no matter what profits or benefits.

Verse 7:85 of Holy Quran,
And to [the people of] Madyan [We sent] their brother Shu’ayb. He said, “O my people, worship ALLAH; you have no deity other than Him. There has come to you clear evidence from your Lord. So fulfil the measure and weight and do not deprive people of their due and cause not corruption upon the earth after its reformation. That is better for you, if you should be believers.
