If you are commencing your journey for Umrah, I would firstly like to congratulate you. I believe, there is nothing more peaceful for a Muslim to visit the Holy Kaaba and surrender to The Almighty. Rest assured that this experience is going to purify every inch of your being and refresh your mind and soul to the core. As I mentioned in my previous blog (Things to pack for Umrah – Women’s Edition), it is absolutely crucial for one to mentally prepare oneself before assembling other materials. I went an extra mile to delete all my social media apps from my phone and it only benefited me to not get derailed from my Ibaadah. 11 days of Social Media Detox turned out to be more relaxing than I expected. Umrah has been truly an experience of a lifetime for my husband and I, hence I want to save you some time and help you gear up for this wonderful Imaan-boosting journey.
Umrah, the soul-refreshing journey, is a dream to many Muslims. My latest trip to Mecca for my first ever Umrah has been truly life-changing for me. I have come back a different person, a person I am happier to be. This piece is for those who are willing to embark upon this journey of a lifetime in the near future. I really hope it helps you to get a clearer idea of how to prepare yourself for Umrah!
