Umrah during the Easter Holidays from Abdul Maaz's blog

In Islam, there is no specific time that is prescribed to the believers for the performance of Umrah rituals. Performing Umrah with full of your attention can benefit you with great rewards from Allah Almighty and many great memories to talk about once you get back home. If you are a resident of a Muslim-majority country, holidays from work or school can easily be obtained by citing Umrah's performance as the reason. However, for Muslims living in western countries, it’s quite difficult to travel for umrah according to their desired time i.e. it depends on whether or not the employer approves the request for holidays.

For this reason, Easter holidays are regarded as the best chance for Umrah performance as you will not have any work or study intentions in your mind. Here are some of the reasons to perform Umrah during the Easter holidays, especially if you are living in western countries.

Saudi Climate during the Spring Season:

During the spring season, the daytime temperature of Saudi Arabia averages out at 26 Degrees Celsius which is quite normal compared to the summer months. Nighttime temperature, on the other hand, experiences a considerable drop.  All in all, neither the weather is too hot during the day nor too cold during the night i.e. just perfect for your family. Despite this, you will not have to worry about sunburns, dehydration, and rashes that are a common thing when performing umrah rituals in hot summer days.

The number of people traveling for Umrah:

Since most of the Muslims prefer going to Makkah during the month of Ramadan or winter months; springtime is quite relaxed in Saudia Arabia. The number of pilgrims arriving in the kingdom is comparatively less. Due to which, there’s isn’t a huge crowd in Haramain. Hence, making it peaceful and easy for pilgrims to offer their holy rituals in a more relaxed way.

Official Holidays:

Since Easter holidays are official holidays given by the government, you will not have to worry about your professional or study life. While everyone else is busy in the Easter preparation, you have the perfect opportunity to perform Umrah rituals with your loved ones and ask for forgiveness from Allah Almighty.

Affordable travel and accommodation in the kingdom:

Due to the lesser number of people traveling for the minor pilgrimage in the Easter holidays, travel and accommodation costs also become quite affordable. Various sorts of discounts and promotional deals are available. As a result of which its significantly convenient to find Cheap Hajj and Umrah packages

Additionally, you can have accommodation in the most luxurious hotels and flights in the most premium class on a surprisingly discounted price quote!

So, if you are a resident of a non-Muslim country i.e. Europe or America, Easter holidays are the best time to travel for umrah performance with family or even alone.
