Umrah is a non-mandatory pilgrimage to Makkah, which can be performed at any time of the year.
Umrah is comprised of a series of acts related to events that happened to Prophet Ibrahim (Abraham) and his second wife Hajer . It is also meant to provide a sense of solidarity between Muslims.
The pilgrimage is full of prayer to and remembrance of God .
Thursday, July 3 we left Riyadh for Makkah to do Umrah.
This was one of the best trips of my life.
It was beautiful,
it was fulfilling,
it was refreshing,
and it strengthened my faith.
In sha Allah ان شاء الله our Umrah is accepted.
I will make a second post with more details about the trip later on.
