Booking Umrah Packages in UK Online Has Become Easier Todayby Safeena Rahman Travel Addict
Umrah is undertaken by numerous Muslims living in different corners of the world every year. This sacred journey requires them to travel from their place of residence to Makkah, the holy city located in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. This 'lesser pilgrimage' or 'minor pilgrimage' is not compulsory when compared to Hajj, which is among Islam's five pillars. However, since it is the Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him), it is considered to be of great importance. This pilgrimage involves lesser rituals and is usually accomplished within a few hours. Another aspect that differentiates the lesser pilgrimage from Hajj is that it can be performed at any time during the year.
Muslims who reside in the United Kingdom have to travel a long distance from their home in the country to the holy city of Makkah. This journey involves a considerable amount of cost, which is reduced by the Umrah packages UK tour operators or travel companies provide. As these companies have tie-ups with the major hotels and airlines, they include cheaper flights and hotel stays in their packages. This has come as a great benefit to many of the Muslims living in the UK, who used to postpone their plans of pilgrimage owing to their limited budgets.
In recent times, booking umrah packages has become much easier than before, as most of the travel companies or tour operators in the UK have their own websites. These attractive and user-friendly sites have the packages arranged in various categories based on their costs and the months of the year, for which, they can be booked. The use of smartphones and other handheld devices have become common and the websites are now mobile-compatible. As a result, the UK Muslims can easily browse through the packages and book the most suitable among them based on their budgets
The Muslims of the UK can reduce the cost of Umrah packages even more if they book the desired package several months in advance. Before booking, they must first decide the date of departure and the number of days they plan to spend in the holy city. Once they have decided the dates, they can go ahead and book the desired package. The savings made on booking in advance can be utilised effectively during their time spent in Makkah. They can use the amount saved to buy attractive souvenirs from the local markets or they can utilise their savings while visiting the popular places in the holy city.
Some of the UK Muslims may not have any budget concerns and can book the high-end packages that allow them to have a comfortable stay while in Makkah. These packages are usually offered by most of the tour operators or travel companies in the category of 5-star packages on their websites. Such packages have accommodations arranged in any of the elegant 5-star hotels in the holy city located close to the Masjid al-Haram. A stay in any of such hotels would provide greater convenience for the pilgrims in getting to the holy mosque and performing their Umrah rituals.
You can also consider booking any of the packages of Umrah Easter holidays bring for UK Muslims.
