Plan your best Umrah Tour 2023

Many people view Umrah as the "minor pilgrimage," but Hajj is seen as the "main pilgrimage." As evidenced by the Hadith narrated by Abu Hurairah (may Allah be pleased with him), wherein the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) states: "The performance of 'Umrah is an expiation for the sins committed between it and the previous ones," it is a sunnah and Muslims are advised to strive to perform it not once, but for as many times as they are able during their lifetime. The only reward for performing the Hajj Mabrur (the pilgrimage approved by Allah) is paradise. [Al-Bukhari]

If you do have plans to conduct the best Umrah Tour in 2023, then make sure to check out these points to know more about the things that you do need to avoid during the sacred journey of your life. 

Things to avoid during Umrah journey: Check out these facts 

Except for the days of Hajj, Umrah can be conducted at any time of the year, however Muslims are strongly encouraged to perform it during Ramadan, the holiest month of the year. In an important hadith, Ibn Abbas reports that the Prophet (peace be upon him) said, “Umrah performed in the month of Ramadan will equal (in rewards) to that of Hajj or Hajj performed with me.” [Bukhari, Muslim]

Check out these mistakes that you need to avoid in 2023-

1. Kissing the Black Stone during Tawaf:

'Kissing' the Black Stone from afar and pausing during Tawaf to do so. Kissing the Black Stone is a lovely Sunnah and is a great honour for the one who can perform it. But the bulk of people are unable to get there because of the huge throng. So many people attempt to "kiss" it from a distance. When they are in line with the Black Stone, they halt in place during Tawaf, turn to face it, raise both arms over their heads and 'kiss' it in the air as if it were right there in front of them.

2. Doing Tawaf on behalf of someone else:

One of the common mistakes that pilgrims often do is conducting Tawaf on the behalf of someone else. This error is frequently made. Seven laps around the Ka'bah is all that they accomplish, after which they give the Tawaf reward to loved ones, departed family members, or deceased relatives. Additionally, family members and friends expressly request that they "perform one Tawaf on their behalf" when someone travels for Hajj or Umrah. This is not true, and there is no proof that it is okay.

Only Hajj and Umrah can be done on others’ behalf, but Tawaf individually cannot be done for someone else. Sheikh Bin Baz said, “Tawaf around the Ka’bah cannot be done by proxy, so no one can do Tawaf on behalf of someone else, unless he is doing Hajj or Umrah on his behalf, in which case he may do it on his behalf along with the rest of Hajj or Umrah.” [Fatawa Bin Baz]

3. Considering the Jamarat to be demons:

Some people mistakenly believe they are going to stone the devils when they go to stone the Jamarat. They actually believe they are stoning Iblees! This practice is even referred to as "stoning the Shaitan." This is untrue. They are not devils, the Jamarat. All we do when we stone these Jamarat is an act of remembering Allah, following the Messenger of Allah ? as an act of worship. That’s it. No need to get emotional, no need to cuss at the Jamarat, no need to push and shove. Baz]

4. Touching or wiping the Ka'bah:

Some people believe there is blessing when they touch the Ka'bah or Maqam Ibrahim. Additionally, people touch and clean their hands on the pillars of the Grand Mosque or the Mosque of the Prophet before wiping their hands over themselves in the belief that this is beneficial. Another act that has no support from Islamic law is this one. None of this was carried out by the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). He would have done so if it had been nice.

5. Believing that it is required to offer 40 prayers in Madina:

For some, doing 40 prayers in the mosque of the Prophet is a requirement for performing the Hajj. It isn't. This is supported by a dubious Hadith. Both visiting Madina and doing 40 prayers there are optional for the Hajj. It is indeed beneficial to spend as much time as possible in Madina and to offer as many prayers as you can at the Prophet's Mosque (PBUH), however it is incorrect to believe that one must offer 40 prayers there.

Sheikh Bin Baz said, “The widespread idea that the visitor should stay for eight days so that he can offer 40 prayers in the mosque is wrong. Although it says in some Ahadith that “whoever offers 40 prayers therein Allah will decree that he is safe from the Fire and free from hypocrisy,” it must be known that this Hadith is Da’eef (weak) according to the scholars and cannot be taken as proof or relied upon. There is no set limit for visiting the Prophet’s Mosque. If a person visits for an hour or two, or a day or two, or for more than that, there is nothing wrong with that.” [Fatawa Bin Baz]
