Advantages of Ramadan Umrah
Ramadan is the most blessed month of the year that multiplies rewards for any worship done to please Allah (SWT). Performing the Umrah during Ramadan is an incredible opportunity and it reaps multiple Benefits, but before that lets just take a few minutes and reflect on the purpose of Ramadan Umrah.
Umrah is a way to purify the soul and mind of an individual, and to deepen faith. It cleanses the soul of the believer from all the negative thoughts and revives the Imaan of the believer.
The Umrah is a Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad (SAW). It is a physical and spiritual journey undertaken by millions of Muslims every year. Our beloved Prophet (SAW) quoted, “to perform one Umrah in the month of Ramadan is equal in reward of a Hajj in my company’ , likewise, it was reported by Ummu Ma‘aqil, (may Allah be pleased with her), that the Prophet Mohammed (Peace be upon him) said to her:“Perform Umrah in Ramadan, as it is equal to Hajj.” [Abu Dawud]
The sentence that “Ramzaan Umrah is equivalent to Hajj”, proves that Prophet Mohammed (Peace be upon him) was actually encouraging her to perform a voluntary Hajj ( Ramadan Umrah), as the whole Ummah (Muslim nation) has unanimously agreed that an Umrah can never be a substitute for the obligatory Hajj. Moreover, what he meant is that they are like each other in reward, but virtues cannot truly be perceived through analogy; and Allah (The Almighty) bestows His Bounty upon whom He Wills.”
1. Becoming a guest of Allah (SWT) – Advantages of Ramadan Umrah
The Holy Prophet (SAW) stated, “The guests of Allah are three: The Ghazi (i.e. the warrior who fights in Jihad), the Haji (i.e. the pilgrim who performs Hajj) and the Mu’tamir (i.e. the pilgrim performing Umrah)”. It is said that when an individual steps out with the pure intention to perform Umrah, he/she is considered to be a pilgrim until his return and so becomes a guest of Allah.
2. Eradication of poverty
Along with its many rewards, the Umrah comes with another unexpected reward which is the elimination of poverty. Performing Umrah protects the individuals from the misery of life, and poverty. Our beloved Prophet S.A.W once stated that following up with Hajj and Umrah can certainly keep the individuals from poverty and sins. They are separated just as the fire separates the impurities from iron, gold, and silver.
3. Atonement of past sins
With the performance of the Umrah, Allah forgives our all past sins. Allah encourages us to seek the rewards of performing Umrah eagerly. Every time you visit The Holy Kaaba, you shall seek atonement for your past sins. So make the best use of this chance and repent and earn your rewards by supplicating to the Almighty.
4. Get the chance to do Jihad
The Prophet (SAW) stated, “Jihad of the elderly, the young, the weak and the women, is Hajj and Umrah.” By performing Umrah, Allah gives us hope and the opportunity for those who cannot perform Jihad to receive its rewards in just few simple rituals .
