Umrah is sometimes known as the “lesser pilgrimage,” in comparison to the annual Hajj packages of Islam. Qibla travel provides Economy Umrah Package. It is a visit one makes to the Grand Mosque in Makkah, outside of the designated Hajj pilgrimage dates. The word “umrah” means to visit an important place.

Some points of the same in Hajj and Umrah:

  • Wearing of the ihram
  • Tawaf – walking seven times around the Ka’aba
  • Sa’y – Running between the hills of Safa and Marwa
  • Shaving or clipping of the hair

However, the other steps of Hajj are not done during Umrah. Therefore, performing Umrah does not meet the requirements of Hajj and doesn’t replace one’s obligation to perform Hajj.

The Umrah also requires a visa and travel arrangements through an authorized Hajj / Umrah service provider. Several million Muslims prefer to do Umrah during the month of Ramadan Umrah packages each year.
