Umrah Backpacker Alternate Journey of Umroh

Umrah Backpacker Alternate Journey of Umroh

Umrah is sometimes known as the “lesser pilgrimage,” in comparison to the annual Hajj pilgrimage of Islam. It is a visit one makes to the Grand Mosque in Mecca, Saudi Arabia, outside of the designated Hajj pilgrimage dates.

A Website Page titled Umroh Backpacker offered a new style for Muslims to carry out Umrah pilgrimage journey. Through the social media, the organization invites Indonesian pilgrims especially those who are based in Indonesia, to make the travel in backpacking style.

Throughout Muhammad’s era the Muslims wanted to establish the right to perform Umrah and Hajj. During that time Mecca was occupied by Arab Pagans who used to worship idols inside Mecca. Muslims in Indonesia are also invited but they have to fly to Kuala Lumpur or Bangkok first and start the journey from there.

Umrah Murah

The travel is estimated to cost or Biaya Umroh each pilgrim around 12.000.000 IDR including costs on Visa Umroh, vaccination, Umrah authorization fee in Jeddah, Land Arrangement Arab Saudi, ihram (attire to do the Umrah ritual) and nine days accommodation and transportation in Mecca.

Added with tax and flight cost to Malaysia or Thailand, the travel costs 13.500.000 IDR in totals. Still a bit cheaper than regular costs of 17.000.000 IDR to 25.000.000 IDR when the pilgrims enrolled in a tour agency from Indonesia.

Umrah means to perform Tawaf round the Kaaba and Sa’i between Al-Safa and Al-Marwah, after assuming Ihram (a sacred state), either from a Miqat like Zu ‘l-Hulafa, Juhfa, Qarnu ‘l-Manāzil, Yalamlam, Zāt-i-‘Irq, IbrahÄ«m MursÄ«a, or a place in Hill. It is sometimes called the ‘minor pilgrimage’ or ‘lesser pilgrimage’, the Hajj being the ‘major’ pilgrimage and which is compulsory for every able-bodied Muslim who can afford it. The Umrah is not compulsory but highly recommended.

The government of Saudi Arabia manages the logistics of visitors coming for both Hajj and Umrah. The Umrah also requires a visa and travel arrangements through an authorized Hajj/Umrah service provider. There is no set time for Umrah; it can be done at any time of year. Several million Muslims prefer to do Umrah during the month of Ramadan each year.

The Saudi ministry in charge of religious pilgrimages has warned of tough penalties for hotels and tour companies that artificially inflate prices during the upcoming Umrah season. The Hajj and Umrah Ministry also warned businesses to keep their prices affordable for Umroh Murah.

The journey Umroh Hemat to fulfill the religious duty will be more exciting, plus, there is a chance to have a short visit to Malaysia or Thailand. However, this style of pilgrimage travel is not suitable for elderly.
