Umrah is one of the pilgrimages that Muslims perform by visiting the holy city of Makkah in Saudi Arabia. The major pilgrimage and one of the five pillars of Islam is Hajj, which is accomplished in Dhu al-Hijjah, the last month in the Islamic calendar. When compared to it, Umrah is called the 'lesser pilgrimage' or the 'minor pilgrimage'. Umrah can be performed at any time of the year by Muslims who are physically and financially capable for making the journey. Unlike Hajj, which is an obligation for all Muslims, Umrah is not compulsory. However, it is the Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) and carries immense spiritual rewards for the pilgrim who performs it.
