Reaching Mecca To Perform Hajj And Umrah -nlite

Travel-and-Leisure Islam has five pillars which include belief in one God, prayer, fasting, raising alms (if affordable) and Hajj at least once in lifetime (if affordable). These are the five obligatory tasks that every Muslim man and woman must do or have faith in, in order to be a Muslim. One of the five pillars, Hajj is the act of uniting in the sacred city of Mecca, Saudi Arabia and joining the processions along with hundreds and thousands of other Muslims. It involves a number of rituals over a number of days beginning on any of the dates from 8th till 12th of the Islamic month of Dhu al-Hajj. Thousands of tour operators all around the world offer Hajj and Umrah packages in order to aide people get there and perform pilgrimage. Umrah is a non-obligatory pilgrimage that is also performed in the city of Mecca but only requires less than half the duties of Hajj. Where Hajj is based on tawaf which is a counter clockwise movement around Kaaba, running between the hills of al-Safa and al-Marwah, drinking water from the Well of Zamzam, sanding on Mount Arafat, stoning the Devil and shaving the head, Umrah only requires tawaf, walking between the hills of al-Safa and al-Marwa and cutting of hair. Millions of Muslims live in UK along with many other parts of the world such as Australia and North America. Tour operators have made Hajj Umrah from UK easy like never before. Each year, millions of Muslims from all parts of the globe try their level best to get there and be the lucky ones to have performed Hajj and/or Umrah but many of them do not get chances to get Hajj and Umrah packages. This is mainly because the ac.modation at Mecca be.es limited, although it is extensive, it can ac.modate as much as millions. Moreover, the places where the rituals of Hajj and Umrah are performed are also not so extensive. Due to increasing number of people, many people used to die each year especially while walking between the hills of al-Safa and al-Marwaha and tawaf. Hence, Saudi government has now made arrangements which have worked out well and made Hajj and Umrah safe for everyone. A part of these arrangements is limiting the number of pilgrims. However, since pilgrimage is held in high regards amongst the Islamic society, many people try their luck each year but many remain unsuccessful. Tour operators around the globe, especially in the UK, have however, greatly eased pilgrimage and people are now able to perform Hajj Umrah from UK and elsewhere like never before.
