Muslim children practically grow up looking forward to the time when they too can finally head to the holy sites of Makkah and Medina and see with their very own eyes the places where some of the most important historic and religious events occurred. Many children are often taken along with their parents for umrah and while the experience can be memorable, a child cannot fully understand the significance of each and every rite that they have to undergo in Hajj or Umrah. No matter how much we hear of the place and the experience from others, nothing can prepare us for the moment when we finally set our eyes upon the Kaabah.
Importance of a guide
This intensely unique experience of performing umrah, alongside the religious significance of it and the many benefits that we get is what makes Muslims from all over the globe flock to Makkah and Medina all year round. The first time that we perform umrah very well becomes a memory that we cherish and look back upon till the end of our days – that is, if all goes well. While we might look forward to performing umrah most of our lives, if we aren’t guided by someone we might end up feeling too overwhelmed and might not be able to perform the rites as we should. Every act of the umrah needs to be done in a specific way and in a specific order, so those who are on their first-ever umrah need to make sure they have someone who can guide them.
Difficulties in arranging umrah
Another factor that can be pretty difficult for first-timers can be arranging for the umrah itself. This can be even more difficult than planning an elaborate vacation because we need to make sure that we can fulfill the purpose for which we came. From applying for a special umrah visa to booking the nearest hotels, car rides, food and so much more, we can have our hands full before we have even reached our destination. The simple solution to all these issues can be to let an umrah tour company plan our entire trip so that we don’t have to worry about anything and can focus all our energies on worshipping and praying to Allah.
Having a smooth journey with umrah packages
With some good Ramadan umrah packages, we can make sure that we make the most of our umrah, and let it go as smoothly as possible. When compared to cheap umrah packages offered by tour companies, a do it yourself umrah can seem quite redundant, unless we want to spend extra money and time on hotels, food, and transport. An umrah package can let us embark on a journey that we will only remember for the positives and one that will let us feel immensely close of Allah.
