Umrah and Hajj are important Ibadahs. They are probably a bit difficult to do than the others but the difficulty never hinders the way of practicing Muslims. They keep on trying their best to get the opportunity of performing Umrah or Hajj at least once in their lives. The most important thing to consider is that the people who are the ones getting the opportunity of performing Umrah or Hajj are those chosen by Allah (SWT). Therefore, it all depends on the will of Allah (SWT). Those who are chosen get a dramatic and positive change in their lives. Umrah has a lot of effects on the lives of the Muslims.
Exposure Is A Very Important Thing
When you are not a Muslim who has ever been to the holy city, you are sure to get a lot of experience when you go there. This experience is more like the religious experience making you get to know about the feeling that the Muslims have when they go to please and the get the blessings of Allah (SWT). Exposure is the religious and spiritual maintenance and the rewards thereof which a Muslim cannot get if they have not gone to this sacred site. This way it is important to know the real meaning and have the real experience of the religious acts of worship done with effort.
Makes You Learn The Lesson Of Sacrifice
The gathering of the holy city of Makkah is the best example of the sacrifice that a man must apply in their casual lives. The people over there are of all the ages and physical state. The spirit of sacrifice makes you help them out in case of any problem. This happens when you see the people around you doing this. This makes you learn a lot from these small but in actual the bigger deeds. These deeds help you in life after death where you are going to get a complete and fair reward for them.
You Get United
When you get united with the Muslim community of the entire world, you feel a sense of unity. This makes this spirit stronger and this is what we need. In the recent scenario, unity is something that we direly need. For this to happen, Muslims must perform and get the lesson from such Ibadahs. The rituals are performed together and in the specified sequence. This makes the huge crowd united by the beliefs of the beautiful religion.
You Develop Sympathy And Empathy
The feelings of sympathy and empathy are also developed in this Ibadah. It is also developed when Muslims gather in one place and see people having a physical problem. A problem occurring with you makes you feel that of the others around you. This positive attitude is developed when you perform Umrah and Hajj also. This empathizing feeling must be made a permanent part of your attitude for practicing it in day-to-day life. This can make your life beautiful full of blessings.
