Umrah is known as a lesser form of pilgrimage than Hajj. It is not an obligatory or Fard act like Hajj but accompanies immense rewards and significance. Millions of Muslims from every corner of the world visit Kaaba to perform Umrah. Ramadan is the holiest month in the Islamic calendar and any good deed performed during this blessed month gets multiplied by seventy times. So just imagine how much reward Umrah holds in the month of Ramadan. It is considered to be the best time for Umrah and holds abundant blessings.
Ibn ‘Abbas, may Allah be pleased with him, narrated, “When the Prophet (PBUH) returned after performing Hajj, he asked Umm Sinaan Al-Ansaariyyah,“ Why did you not perform Hajj?” She replied, ‘The father of so-and-so [i.e., her husband] had two camels and he went on pilgrimage on one of them, and the second is used for the irrigation of our land.’ The Prophet (PBUH) said [to her]:‘An ‘Umrah in Ramadan is similar to Hajj with me [in terms of reward].’” [Al-Bukhari and Muslim]
Another narration goes this way – the Prophet (PBUH) said: “If Ramadan arrives, perform Umrah as [the reward for] it is equivalent to Hajj”.
With the arrival of Ramadan, there is a sense of festive feeling all over Makkah and Madinah and the population increases immensely with travellers wishing to perform Umrah. A sense of joy and unity is felt all over. It is a splendid sight where Muslims of every race, region and community from different parts of the world sit and break their fast together. The residents of the holy cities take great pride in their hospitality as they volunteer in helping and hosting pilgrims. The residents deliver food at Mosques for fasting people, offer good wishes and make pilgrims feel welcomed.

A visit to Makkah and Madinah in the month of Ramadan is truly an enriching experience and a blessing for every Muslim.
In the light of authentic Hadiths, below are some of the benefits of performing Umrah in the sacred month of Ramadan:
b) Ramadan is a month, which increases the reward of a single act to seventy times. If a Muslim performs a good deed, he/she will be rewarded seventy times of the actual deed.
c) A person’s focus remains in fasting and worshipping. He remains focused on remembering Allah and getting closer to Him through Ibadah during his Umrah visit.
d) It is a mesmerizing sight to witness thousands of Muslims, who hail from every corner of the world, coming to Makkah and getting together in remembering Allah and fulfilling His duties, offering Salah and breaking their fast.
e) Performing Umrah during Ramadan is a blessing which not only brings spiritual and mental relief but also carries greater reward in terms of blessings and acceptance by Allah (SWT).
f) When one visits Baitullah (the House of Allah), one becomes the guest of Allah. The Holy Prophet (SAW) stated, “The guests of Allah are three: The Ghazi (i.e. the warrior who fights in Jihad), the Haji (i.e. the pilgrim who performs Hajj) and the Mu’tamir (i.e. the pilgrim performing Umrah).” – Hadith No. 2626, Book of The Rites of Hajj, Sunan An-Nasa’i, Vol. 3.
g) Along with its many rewards, Umrah comes with another unexpected blessing that is the elimination of poverty.
It was reported by ‘Abdullaah ibn Mas‘ood (may Allah be pleased with him), that the Messenger of Allah(PBUH) said: "Perform Hajj and ‘Umrah repeatedly, for they remove poverty and sins in the same way as bellows remove the impurities of iron, gold, and silver.” [Ahmad and others]
