Umrah and Hajj both are included as a pilgrimage; however, many practices are held before performing Umrah and Hajj journey. Meanwhile, both are not considering as its same meaning, there is a quiet difference. If you don’t understand the hidden meaning first you need proper knowledge.

In Islam, what is the value level of Hajj?

The Hajj comes at the top level of the five pillars of Islam. For every Muslims to perform Hajj, it is obligated to do Hajj once in their lifetime, as it is a compulsory pillar for those who are financially and physically fit. Hajj has a specific month, means you cannot perform the hajj at any time. Hajj have a specific month according to the Islamic calendar.

The Hajj pilgrims have to perform their duties in some specific places of Mecca in the month of Dhul-Hajjah. When the eight of Dhul-Hajjah comes, the formal duties of Hajj are stated over. On the ninth of Dhul-Hajjah, pilgrims spend the whole day on the place of Arafat and on the ten of Dhul-Hajjah, the Hajj is officially performed.

What is the basic meaning of Umrah?

Umrah is included in the non-mandatory pilgrim, means it is not compulsory pilgrim for Muslims to perform Umrah, with the intention to remove sins and purify their soul. The main aspects of Umrah are as follow:

  1. Tawaf
  2. Ihraam
