Ramadan is the best time to perform ‘Umrah


Q:Does performing ‘Umrah (lesser pilgrimage) during the months of Hajj have any particular virtue different from performing it in other months?

A: The best month to perform ‘Umrah is during Ramadan, for the Prophet (peace be upon him) said: ‘Umrah (performed) in Ramadan is equal to Hajj (in reward). (Agreed upon its authenticity by Imams Al-Bukhari and Muslim) According to another narration by Al-Bukhari: It is equivalent to performing Hajj with me. According to the narration by Muslim: It is equivalent to Hajj or Hajj performed with me (in reward). This means that it is equivalent to Hajj or (indicative of uncertainty on the part of the Hadith narrator) equivalent to Hajj performed with the Prophet (peace be upon him). Then, comes the ‘Umrah in Dhul-Qa‘dah, for all the ‘Umrahs which the Prophet (peace be upon him) performed took place in Dhul-Qa‘dah. Allah (Glorified be He) says: Indeed, in the Messenger of Allâh (Muhammad peace be upon him) you have a good example to follow.

May Allah grant us success!

About Umm Abdulazeez

"I am a Muslim who is upon the Qur'aan and the Sunnah and upon the methodology of the Salaf As-Saalih (Pious Predecessors). And that can be said in short by saying, 'I am a Salafee' " [Shaykh Al-Albaanee رحمه الله] ________ Sufyaan Ath-Thawree (rahimahullaah) said: “Indeed knowledge should only be learned for the purpose of fearing Allaah. Indeed, knowledge has been given virtue over other than it because with it Allaah is feared.” [Jaam'i Bayaan al-'Ilm wa Fadlihi by Imaam Ibn Abdil-Barr (rahimahullaah)]
