Umrah in Ramadan Has Become Easier with Affordable Packagesby Safeena Rahman Travel Addict
The importance of performing Umrah, the lesser pilgrimage, in Ramadan can be understood from what Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) had once said. He had mentioned that an Umrah performed in the holy month was just like going on Hajj with him. The feelings that a Muslim goes through while performing the lesser pilgrimage during the holy month is something that cannot be described in words. It would be a great experience for the pilgrim being at the Masjid al-Haram during this time of the year to accomplish the dream of performing Umrah.
Many of the Muslims residing in the United Kingdom also perform Umrah in Ramadan to get the spiritual benefits associated with it. There was a time in the past when they had to depend on the local travel agents to have their journey to the holy city arranged. Over the years, many tour operators offering the Islamic religious tours of Hajj and Umrah have come up in various parts of the country. This has given them wider choices in terms of packages for performing the lesser pilgrimage and the ones providing them. Muslims living in the UK can now get their desired package for performing Umrah in the holy month by making comparisons between these packages.
In recent times, getting suitable Ramadan Umrah packages according to one's available budget has become easier than ever before. Almost all the tour operators in the UK now have their own websites and their online presence has helped Muslims of the country to get their preferred package booked without any hassles. They just need to search online for packages and make detailed comparisons between all the available ones that suit their budget.

While the opportunities for Umrah Ramadan month brings for the UK Muslims are tremendous, the packages can be made affordable by booking online. They can be made even more cost-effective by booking well in advance. However, before Muslims of the UK book their desired package several months earlier, they must first decide the departure date and the amount of time they would like to spend in the holy city after performing their Umrah. Once they are confident about their dates, they can go ahead and make their booking. The savings made upon booking months in advance can be utilised for visiting the sacred sites in Makkah or to buy souvenirs or gifts from the markets nearby.

Most of these hotels are located close to the Masjid al-Haram and are equipped with the latest facilities designed to make their stay pleasant and memorable.
