Umrah is an extremely important Holy activity and if accepted
by Almighty Allah, it can bring countless blessings and benefits to the Muslim.
Keeping all these benefits in mind, Muslims from all over the world try their
level best to perform an Umrah as many times as possible in their life. The
reason behind this is simple, they are aware of the terrific benefits of
performing an Umrah and in order to get those benefits and to make Almighty
Allah happy, they always strive to maximize the total count of Umrah they have
performed in this limited life.
It is a fact that this life is not endless and it will come
to an end after a short while. Therefore in order to make your life hereafter peaceful
and free of trouble, it is extremely important to keep focusing on maximize the
number of good deeds you have performed in this world.
There is no doubt that an Umrah has unlimited rewards in
itself but it doesn't mean that the people going for an Umrah trip stop
offering prayers. Keep in mind that Salah or prayer is obligatory and whether
you are on an Umrah trip or even if you are doing Jahad in the path of Allah,
you are not allowed to skip or leave the prayer. It is an undeniable fact,
therefore you need to make sure that while on an Umrah trip, in addition to
performing an Umrah, you need to focus on making sure that you will be offering
the prayer 5 times a day. And it is not only for Umrah trip, throughout your
life you need to make it a routine to offer prayer 5 times a day because this
is something you have to do under all circumstances.
The goal of
Performing an Umrah
The basic purpose and goal of performing an Umrah are to make
Almighty Allah happy and to get forgiveness from God. If a person has performed
Umrah thousands of times but he or she is not offering prayer regularly, it is
unlikely that he or she will be able to make Almighty Allah happy. The reason
behind is that Almighty Allah has declared Salah obligatory and you may have to
face tough consequences as a result of leaving the prayer. Therefore in order to achieve the actual goal
of performing an Umrah, an individual needs to ensure that he or she is
offering prayer five times a day.
Unlikely To Make Almighty Allah Happy Without Salah
It is only after
strictly following the routine of offering prayers five times a day, you can
consider yourself in such a position that you have got very strong chance to be
forgiven in the life year after. Without offering prayer, it is unlikely that
you will be able to make Almighty Allah happy and get a huge reward in the life
hereafter. Therefore, before making a plan to go for an Umrah trip, the first
thing you need to do is to ensure that you are offering prayer regularly and
you must be committed to continuing this habit of offering prayer on a regular
basis throughout your life.
