Difference Between Hajj And Umrah Umrah and Hajj are both the pilgrims in the religion of Islam and Muslims from all over the world travel to Saudi Arab to perform these two pilgrims. However, a person who hasn’t performed Umrah and hajj himself will not usually find out the much of the difference between both practices but actually, there is a lot of difference, to describe it clearly follow the content down below and you will understand the real difference,


In terms of significance: Hajj is the obligatory pilgrimage at least once in a life for all those who are able to travel to Saudi Arb for the pilgrimage purpose and that requires both money and health and Hajj has a lot more significance than umrah but in the case of Umrah, the practice is not so


In terms of Rituals: The rituals in Umrah are, the ihram (the practice to be in the state of purification), circling the holy Kabah(Tawaf), Sae ( walk between the Safa and the Marwah), Zamzam water drinking ritual, and also shaving the hair for men and cutting the hair for women. However, as compared to the rituals of Umrah, Hajj includes more rituals to perform for the completion of it, such as to spend days and the nights in the neighboring places/areas of Makkah that are Mina, Muzdalifah and Arafat), hitting the devil with stones, and at the end slaughtering an animal or more in the name of Allah after the Completion of Haajj. Most of the rituals that must be performed in Hajj aren't necessary to perform in Umrah. In terms of performing the pilgrimage Another major difference between Umrah and Hajj is that Hajj must be strictly performed and specifically in the assigned months of Shawwal, Dhul-Hijjah (Zul Hijjah), and Dhul-Qadah only, however, Umrah pilgrimage can be performed any time in the year. That’s the reason why umrah is called as mini-hajj and Hajj is the real deal.


The bottom line of the differences between Hajj and Umrah The main difference in Hajj and Umrah is described by the significance both pilgrimages in the first paragraph Hajj is the real/major pilgrimage and it involves a whole lot more rituals than Umrah. Hajj is obligatory for once in a lifetime for a Mulsim while Umrah is not, umrah will be more of Like Sunnah. hajj must be performed in the assigned months from the religion Islam and no other than that, however, you can perform Umrah anytime Hajj can only be performed with the fellow pilgrims, while Umrah rituals turn out to be very individualized rituals. This is a major one that will clear out all the difference of importance and obligation, "Hajj is among the five pillars of Islam but the Umrah is not in the list�, which gives Hajj a tremendous amount of difference and significance as compared Umrah. Despite all such difference mentioned in the article, both of the rituals have very much similarities, one similarity is that both are performed in the love of Allah and his Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W).
