Get Umrah Packages at Lower Costs by Booking Earlyby Safeena Rahman Travel Addict
It is a dream of many Muslims across the globe to visit the city of Makkah in Saudi Arabia to accomplish their Umrah. As compared to the major pilgrimage of Hajj, performing Umrah is not an obligation for them; but, as the lesser pilgrimage is the Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him), it has its own importance in Islam. Upon performing this pilgrimage, the pilgrim can also benefit from the spiritual rewards associated with it. Umrah involves lesser rituals as compared to Hajj and can be performed at any time during the year. As there are lesser rituals in the pilgrimage, Umrah can be performed in less than a few hours.
Muslims living in the United Kingdom have to endure a long journey from their place of residence in the UK to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in order to perform the minor pilgrimage. There are many in the country who cannot afford the costs involved in such journeys and are always looking for Umrah deals that can make their journey to the holy city truly affordable. Today, there are several tour operators in different corners of the UK offering such deals on most of the bookings that are made several months in advance.
There are certain times in the year when Muslims of the UK can make their journey to Makkah and perform their lesser pilgrimage. One of them is the Easter weekend, which has now become a popular time for booking Umrah packages among the Muslims of the country. As the schools and offices of the UK are closed for the Easter weekend, it can be a wonderful opportunity to visit the holy city for accomplishing the minor pilgrimage. Some of the pilgrims might be concerned about the extreme heat in Makkah during this season, but they can deal with it by wearing lighter clothes once they are in the holy city.
Another great time to visit the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia for performing Umrah is the last week of December. The offices and educational institutions in the country are closed for Christmas celebrations in this week. This gives ample time for Muslims of the country to perform their lesser pilgrimage with the help of Umrah packages from UK booked in advance. Pilgrims from Northern parts of Europe arriving in Makkah during this time of the year can perform Umrah comfortably in the presence of a pleasant weather of the city.
Muslims from the UK who intend to perform their minor pilgrimage must plan their dates several months in advance for getting the best deals on the packages for Umrah. Those who have not planned much earlier can also book their packages at reduced costs with the help of last-minute deals. Such deals are usually given by the tour operators on packages that are still remaining to be sold despite the fast-approaching departure dates. This is done by them to avoid the possibility of losses that might be incurred as a result of the packages remaining unsold.
