Umrah is a time for contemplation, worship, and introspection. For every Muslim, performing Umrah comes only second to Hajj. As you experience the powerful and holy vibrations of the Kaaba while circumambulating it, chose to stay with Shaza hotels that offer the perfect atmosphere to unwind after each day of your holy pilgrimage. Your Umrah is incomplete without visiting Madina, the second holiest site in Islam.
Umrah allows to begin a journey within that strengthens one’s faith. It is an occasion for joy and is followed by peace and satisfaction. A pilgrimage taken at will, it is imbibed with three meaningful rituals of Tawaf, Sa’ye, and Halq. It’s a time to let the white robes you adorn during ihram cleanse your soul of sins.
Each ritual during the Umrah holds a significance. The ritual of Tawaf, when the pilgrims circle around the Kaaba seven times, symbolises the unity of the pilgrims as they move in sync in a circle believing in one God with their hearts and souls focused on their faith in the oneness of Allah. The ritual of Sa’ye, when the pilgrims walk briskly or run between the Safa and Marwah at the Great Mosque of Makkah, marks the journey of the Hagar.
Hagar was the wife of Abraham, who took this journey to search for water for her infant. God answered her prayers. Her undying faith in God inspires every pilgrim who performs Umrah. Halq, the third ritual, is a rite performed by shaving one’s hair to portray the submission of a person’s will to God and triumph over physical appearances.
Umrah is known as a forgiveness for sins of a person and is incomplete without visiting Madina. Madina is where the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) established the Muslim community. It is where his tomb is also built. The city has its own pace that is not only calm but respectful in itself to Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) and the religion of Islam.
