Umrah Packages

Umrah

To many in Singapore’s small but vibrant Muslim community, performing a pilgrimage to the holy city of Mecca is central to our faith. It is often seen as a deeply spiritual and even sacred act, and must therefore be carried out with the utmost sincerity and conviction.

The Hajj, the annual pilgrimage performed in the final month of the Islamic calendar, is familiar to both Muslims and non-Muslims alike as one of the five pillars of Islam. Yet lesser-known is the Umrah, also called the “minor pilgrimage”, which shares many similarities with the Hajj but differs in certain customs and practices. If you are looking to learn more about this special form of pilgrimage, you have certainly come to the right place.

What is Umrah​

In the Arabic language, “Umrah” means “to visit a populated place”. Like the Hajj, the Umrah is a pilgrimage to the city of Mecca in Saudi Arabia, considered the holiest city in Islam. The Quran does not stipulate that the Umrah is compulsory, in contrast to the Hajj, which is more highly regarded as the “major pilgrimage”. However, all Muslims are nevertheless encouraged to perform Umrah if they are able, so as to bring themselves closer to their faith.

Umrah consists of four steps:

Why do we perform UMRAH?​

“Accomplish the Hajj and the Umrah for Allah.” — al-Baqarah, 196​

Although the Umrah is not compulsory, it is performed by many Muslims to purge oneself of sins and connect more deeply with our faith. It is one of the most deeply spiritual acts that any believer can perform, and is highly recommended as a way of supplementing the quality of our worship during the Hajj.

Additionally, due to the official Hajj quota set by Saudi Arabia’s Ministry of Haj and Umrah, only a limited number of Muslims may perform the Hajj each year. However, those who have yet to receive the opportunity need not worry, as the Umrah can also be used to fulfil our spiritual needs. Although every Muslim is still obligated to perform the Hajj at least once, performing the Umrah may serve as a way for more believers to increase their acts of worship to God.

Which month is best for Umrah?​

Unlike the Hajj, which must be performed on specific dates in the Islamic calendar, the Umrah may be performed at any time during the year. Most pilgrims choose to do it during the month of Ramadan, as it is the holiest month in Islam. Some also perform it immediately before or after the Hajj season in the final month of the Islamic calendar.

How many days do I need to perform Umrah?​

As the rites involved in Umrah are relatively simpler than those of the Hajj, one may complete them in just a few hours. But with our exciting Umrah packages, which include tours of Mecca and Medina along with five-star accommodation, you can spend up to two weeks taking in the sights and sounds of the incredible holy city.

We just came back from our very first umrah trip and we are so glad we picked Jalaluddin Travel to do this with. The services rendered from all staff right from the time we enquired, to the whole umrah trip until our return, has been nothing but excellent. Accompanied by Hj Jasni and Hanann who were both amazing throughout, all arrangements were up to mark. We were greeted with Jalaluddin representatives at every point of our journey. Besides Ustaz Johari, our wonderful mutawwif, the other Ustaz that led us at different junctures of our umrah journey were all equally amazing. Every aspect of the trip especially the obligatory ones was efficiently planned and executed. Hj Jasni gave very detailed instructions before each day and checked on everything for us, before, during and after this amazing adventure. Thank you Jalaluddin Travel for making this trip of a lifetime an outstanding reality!
