Best Age To Perform Umrah

Recommended Posts

Just the thought of performing Umrah energizes the devotee, but one should bear in mind that performing Umrah is an arduous task. Many people wonder ‘What is the best age to perform Umrah’, the age at which an individual can make the most out of these spiritual journeys. Many Ulema believe that it is better to perform Hajj and Umrah in young age. Youth? Juggling between responsibilities, overburdened with studies, carefree about finances, religious affairs… so not ‘their thing’, how could young age be the best age to perform Umrah?

Depends on the individual.

 

If they are mature and have strong iman, then performing Umrah can be done pretty much from teenage years.

Personally me and my wife did it few years back now but I was 33.

 

As for Hajj, I think that takes alot more- one has to be mentally strong and I personally always felt that if I did it in my 'younger days' I may still not have the fulfilment it ought to bring (what with worldly challenges etc).

 

I have not done hajj to this day but it's more now due to the financial costs involved.

 

If Allah wills, I will love (and pray) I do it whilst still sound of mind and body. I would also want to do this journey with my wife.

      The history of the messengers: Moses
      The killing of the sons of Mosesnation
      The children of Israel carefully considered what had been said among themselves, generation after another, about Prophet Abraham (pbuh): that from his descendants there would emerge a boy who would cause the fall of the king of Egypt. This news was so well-known among the children of Israel that it reached the Pharaoh, after being mentioned to him by some of his princes. As a result and a precautionary measure, Pharaoh ordered that the sons of the children of Israel be killed to prevent such a boy from ever existing. Under the rule of Pharaoh, the children of Israel lived in oppression and injustice. {Verily, Fir’aun (Pharaoh) exalted himself in the land and made its people sects, weakening (oppressing) a group (i.e. Children of Israel) among them, killing their sons, and letting their females live. Verily, he was of the Mufsidûn (i.e. those who commit great sins and crimes, oppressors, tyrants, etc.).{ (Al-Qasas:4)
      Allah wanted to bless the besieged children of Israel. 5. And We wished to do a favour to those who were weak (and oppressed) in the land, and to make them rulers and to make them the inheritors, 6. And to establish them in the land, and We let Fir’aun (Pharaoh) and Hâmân and their hosts receive from them that which they feared.(Al-Qasas:5-6)
      The story of his birth and upbringing
      Pharaoh was extremely careful in ensuring that Moses would not be born, to the extent that he ordered his minions and midwives to circulate and ask pregnant women about their due dates; so the moment a male was born, he was immediately slaughtered by his butchers. However Allah wanted to show Pharaoh, Haman and their soldiers that which they feared, and when the mother of Moses gave birth to him, she knew she had to dispose of him or he would be slaughtered. {And We inspired the mother of Mûsa (Moses), (saying): “Suckle him [Mûsa (Moses)], but when you fear for him, then cast him into the river and fear not, nor grieve. Verily! We shall bring him back to you, and shall make him one of (Our) Messengers.”}(Al-Qasas:7)

      What is happiness?
      What, then, is this happiness, and how does one achieve happiness?!
      Happiness is the constant feeling of elation, tranquility, generosity and joy. This feeling of contentment comes as a result of always having three states: one’s self being in a good state, one’s life being good, and expecting that one’s final abode will be good.
      With regards to these three states, man starts by asking questions about the self. These questions grow larger as he grows older, and he does not find happiness until he answers the questions which come to his mind:
      • Who owns this universe and controls all its affairs?
      • Who created me and created this universe around me?
      • Who am I? Where do I come from? Why was I created?
      Where will my destiny take me?

      `Umrah is obligatory one time only during a person's life for the people of Makkah or others due to the general proofs for this.Performing Ihram for `Umrah for a person who is inside the sacred area should be from outside the sacred area such as Al-Tan`im, Al-Ji`ranah or the like.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
