Islamic pilgrimage Umrah is an act of worship of Allah that is a Sunnah deed. This is also called “minor pilgrimage”. Muslims can perform minor pilgrimage throughout the year. However, this pilgrimage is not obligatory like a Hajj, but it brings great rewards for the Muslims. The millions of Muslims gather in the Holy Kabba for achieving the closest to Allah (SWT). For the Muslims, Umrah is the pleasurable deed that makes them feel important in this life and afterlife. In Islam Umrah is the way to show love and respect for each other by stripping away all the signs of pride, wealth and social status. The pilgrims wear a simple and pure white dress that is called Ihram that Muslims carry during the Umrah pilgrimage. These acts of worship purify their souls and refresh their sense of purpose in the world. Therefore, Umrah has a great place in the life of every Muslim.
