Every year almost 1.7 million Pakistanis perform Umrah to clean their soul from their past sins and to seek Allah’s mercy and His refuge from the burdens of life. According to an estimate, 495,270 Pakistani Muslims spend their time and money to show their association and passionate love for their holy places.
Why do Muslims perform Umrah?
Umrah is a holy pilgrimage undertaken at any time in the whole year. While performing Umrah, Muslims visit Holy places in Makkah and Madinah Al Munawarah, complete Tawaf in Kaaba and Al-Safa and Al-Marwah, and offer Umrah dua along with their regular prayers. Muslims also perform an array of rituals as performed by Hazrat Ibrahim A.S and his wife Hazrat Hajira. Where Muslims perform Tawaf round the Kaaba seven times.
Muslims also perform Si’a which is an important ritual in which Muslims rapidly walk between Al Safa and Al Marwah. They do this seven times to live the story of the baby Ismail crying for water and the restless search of his mother Hazrat Hajira. Almighty Allah shower his grace and a source of water bounced out at the place where baby Ismail was hitting the ground with his foot. This source of water is known as the holy water named Zamzam.
Muslims perform Umrah to show their association and love to Allah Almighty and to get rid of their past sins. They perform it with a belief that Allah will shower his mercy and grace on them and will forgive their past sins and will show them the righteous path in the future.
