The Best Umrah Package Deals Can Be Booked Onlineby Safeena Rahman Travel Addict
Umrah is the Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) and has its own special place in Islam, although not an obligation for Muslims when compared to the major pilgrimage of Hajj. Also called the ‘minor pilgrimage’, Umrah can be accomplished at any time of the year and involves fewer rituals. It is highly recommended for every Muslim who is financially capable and physically fit to undertake the journey from his place of residence to the holy city of Makkah. Muslims across the world perform the minor pilgrimage for the immense spiritual benefits that it carries.
For Muslims residing in the United Kingdom (UK), the journey from their respective homes to Makkah in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is made easier with Umrah packages UK travel companies provide. In the past few years, many of these companies have come up with their own websites, making it extremely convenient for the prospective pilgrims to book the packages online. As all the details are provided in the description of these packages on the website, they can go through the benefits offered in a particular package and make the booking if it satisfies all their requirements for Umrah.
Muslims living in the UK are provided several benefits in such packages, but they greatly differ according to the travel company they are booking their desired package with. Some offer flights from the leading airports of the UK to King Abdulaziz International Airport located near Jeddah in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Others provide accommodations in hotels that are located close to the Masjid al-Haram in the holy city of Makkah in addition to flights. Upon staying in any of these hotels, the pilgrims can have greater convenience in visiting the holy mosque and performing all the rituals with complete peace of mind.
Today, there are Umrah package deals available with various travel companies in the UK for some specific seasons of the year. Such seasons are the times of the year when schoolchildren and working professionals have their holidays. Muslims working in organisations across the UK can perform their minor pilgrimage by planning their journey to the holy city of Makkah during these seasons. During the Christmas season, the weather in Makkah is extremely pleasant for UK Muslims and can be a wonderful time to fulfil their dream of Umrah. As Easter falls between March and April, the climate in Makkah would be extremely hot. However, the pilgrims can get some good deals on their packages if they make their bookings well in advance.
As there is no prescribed time for performing Umrah, Muslims living in the UK can also plan their minor pilgrimage during a time which is convenient for them. Besides the seasonal packages, they can get some good Umrah deals on packages that are classified according to certain months of the year, such as January, February, March, and May. The UK Muslims can have more savings for their journey if they plan their dates several months in advance and book their desired packages.
