UK Muslims Can Now Get Affordable Umrah Packages in 2018by Safeena Rahman Travel Addict
Numerous Muslims around the world are looking forward to fulfilling their dream of performing Umrah in the year 2018, especially those who have not been able to accomplish it in the previous years. Umrah, also known as the ‘minor pilgrimage’ or the ‘lesser pilgrimage’, is not an obligation as compared to Hajj, which is among Islam’s five pillars. However, it is the Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) and has its own spiritual benefits for the pilgrim performing it. Unlike the major pilgrimage of Hajj, this particular pilgrimage can be undertaken at any time of the year.
Just like many of the Muslims around the world, the followers of Islam in the United Kingdom also dream of embarking on a memorable journey to the holy city of Makkah from their place of residence to perform the minor pilgrimage. The Umrah packages UK travel companies provide help them immensely in fulfilling one of their biggest dreams of visiting the holy city and accomplishing their lesser pilgrimage. It is no less than a blessing from The Almighty Allah that there are so many travel companies providing such packages for Muslims living in different parts of the country.
The presence of numerous travel companies has given UK Muslims the freedom to choose any of the suitable Umrah packages in 2018. With so many packages offered by different tour operators, they can easily make comparisons and pick the one best suited to their budgets and travel requirements. Many of these travel companies make certain packages available for Muslims living in the UK for advance bookings. This gives them the opportunity to have greater savings as such packages are often made available at reduced costs. Savings thus made can be utilised during their time spent in the holy city.
Muslims of the UK can also choose their Umrah packages in 2018 based on the location of their accommodation offered in Makkah. Some of the packages have accommodations arranged for the pilgrims in elegant hotels located close to the Masjid al-Haram. With stays close to the holy mosque, they can perform all the rituals of Umrah with complete peace of mind. Most of the hotels closer to the holy mosque of Makkah are equipped with the latest facilities, which make staying in them a pleasant experience for pilgrims.
Rapid advancements in technology have also changed the way bookings are done for Umrah. Earlier, the UK Muslims had to visit the offices of their nearest tour operator or travel company to book their journey to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Although visiting the travel company’s office would help them interact with the staff personally, many who do not have the time can get their bookings done online. As most of the travel companies today have an online presence in the form of user-friendly websites, booking the desired packages have become much easier. It also gives the UK Muslims sufficient time to go through the details of packages offered, make comparisons, and book the one that suits their requirements.
