Ramadan: When it comes to the best time for Umrah, Ramadan holds a special significance and the greatest rewards. According to Hadith, Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said, “Perform Umrah in the month of Ramadan, as it’s (reward) is parallel to having a Hajj performed with me.” [Bukhari]
That is why most Muslims prefer to perform Umrah in Ramadan. Likewise, Muslims in UK rush to book Umrah packages from London and various parts of the country to get the best deals and offers.
Muharram & Saffar: Right after the end of Hajj season comes the month of Muharram and Saffar when the prices of hotel accommodation slash down, so these months are a great time for people interested in performing Umrah to book the packages for. It is also the beginning of the new Islamic year so your visa application will be fast-processed and the formalities will get completed within a short duration.
Mid-year Vacation: If you prefer to go on Umrah with your family or group then, go on Umrah during the mid-year vacation. Most people are busy with their studies or jobs the whole year except in the vacation. Therefore, mid-year vacation is a great time for the whole family to go on a holy expedition but book your tickets in advance because it is a busy time for Umrah.
Winter: The weather conditions in Saudi Arabia are extreme with scorching hot and humid days and cold nights. The temperature remains high during most months in Saudi Arabia except in winters (November to January). Therefore, winter time is good for Umrah as you are able to perform all rituals easily and without any hurdles. Contact our Umrah travel experts for the best Umrah packages for winters!
These are the main steps of Umrah;
2. Tawaf around the Kaabah
4. Saa’ee around the hills of Safa and Marwah
5. Coming out of Ihram
Five points around Makkah are used as Meekat for assuming Ihram. Men’s ihram consists of two plain and white sheets of cloth while women are permitted to wear normal clothes but they cannot cover their hands and face. After assuming Ihram, pilgrims are required to make intention for Umrah and recite Talbiyah until they reach Kaabah.
After entering Haram, lift your hand to the direction of the black stone (Hajri Aswad) and say Allah-hu-Akbar and start performing tawaf i.e. circumambulating the Kaabah seven times. Upon completion of tawaf offer Nafl at Maqam-e-Ibrahim. Afterwards, move to the hills of Safa and Marwah to perform Saa’ee. After completing Saa’ee i.e. the seven circuits, pilgrims are required to cut/trim their hair. This completes the Umrah.
For more information regarding how to do Umrah and important tips to perform Umrah, visit our Umrah Guide section.
Before reaching the Meeqat, it is recommended to take Ghusl, the bath of purity. After the ritual bath, men can put perfume and wear the two sheets of clothes of Ihram. The women are prohibited to use any fragrances during the Umrah and Hajj. After assuming Ihram, it is recommended to perform two raka’t nafl prayers after which, pilgrims are required to make intention for Umrah. The condition of Ihram clothing is different for women. They can wear their ordinary clothes which match the rules of Hijab. Once the pilgrims enter the state of Ihram, men pronounce Talbiyah loudly but the females have to keep their voices low. Both should keep reciting Talbiyah throughout their way to the Kaaba.

Women are also not allowed to perform Ramal or recite Talbiyah loudly. If there is a large crowd of men near the Kaabah, women should maintain a distance.
