What is a good month for Umrah?


بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيْم

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



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]
