Meaning of Umrah

What's the meaning of umrah is the question asked many, the Muslims and non-muslims. 

Umrah or Omra is an Arabic word. The direct translation is "to visit a populated place".

In Islam, Umrah is an act of worship. Umrah is performed at masjid al-haram in mecca. 

Unlike Hajj, which is a mandatory act for Muslim who can afford it, umrah is not a Farld. Umrah is a sunnah FArld means compulsory, and sunnah means an act of worship performed by the prophet (ﷺ).

The difference between umrah and haj is that. Haj is performed only in a specific month in the Islamic calendar. It is the month of Dhul haj.

Umrah can be performed throughout the year.
