Question

 

What is a good month for Umrah?

 

بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيْم

In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful 

Answer:

 

The most virtuous month for performing Umrah in is the month of Ramadan.

The Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: “Performing Umrah in Ramadan is equivalent to performing Hajj.” [1]

In the narration of Sahih Muslim, it reads as “performing Hajj with me”, (i,e, with the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam)). [2]
