Excellence of `Umrah (Hadith No. 1524)


Kitaab-ul-`Umrah [Book of Minor Pilgrimage] starts today.

Volume 3, Book 27, Number 1:

Narrated Abu Huraira (radiallaahu `anhu):

Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said, “(The performance of) ‘Umra is an expiation for the sins committed (between it and the previous one). And the reward of Hajj Mabrur (the one accepted by Allah) is nothing except Paradise.”

This Hadith is the best news I’ve received in a long time! Makes me want to go back to Saudi again. :(

We sin every hour of the day. Salah expiates those sins. And we sin repeatedly throughout the days and months. InshaAllah, when Allah gives us the tawfeeq to do (multiple) `Umrah(s), those sins shall also be forgiven. Such a blessing of Allah! Alhamdulillah. How can one ever despair of His Mercy?
May Allah invite me and you (the reader), and all the Muslims to visit His House often. And may He accept the visits from us then. Ameen.

Here’s an image to make you feel the same longing as I’m feeling right now:

Having said (and done) that, there’s a side question: what’s the ruling on `Umrah? Is it an obligation upon all Muslims, or recommended? Read the detailed answer with all the proofs here.
