Have More Benefits by Booking January Umrah Packages
Posted: Aug 10, 2018
The climate of Makkah is of the hot desert type, which means that the city is characterised by scorching temperatures during the summers that often go beyond the 40-Degree Celsius mark. The winters are relatively pleasant in this part of the world with rainfall occurring between the months of November and January. It is during this time of the year that most of the Muslims living in the countries of Northern Europe prefer to make their journey to the holy city of Makkah for their Umrah. This Islamic pilgrimage is also known among many of the Muslims across the world as the 'minor pilgrimage' or the 'lesser pilgrimage'.
For many of the Muslims, the opportunities for Umrah January month presents are tremendous, largely because of the pleasant climate of Makkah during this time of the year. It gives them greater convenience to perform all the rituals associated with the minor pilgrimage. The rituals involved in Umrah are lesser when compared to the major pilgrimage of Hajj and this is the reason why it is often accomplished within a few hours. Numerous Muslims residing in the United Kingdom also prefer to visit the holy city for performing their lesser pilgrimage in the month of January.
Muslims living in the UK can book any of the January Umrah packages to make their journey of Umrah comfortable and cost-effective. Over the years, many travel companies or tour operators offering the religious tours of Hajj and Umrah have come up in various parts of the country. This has given UK Muslims various choices in terms of tour operators and the number of packages. An increase in the number of tour operators has also resulted in reduced costs of the packages owing to competition. However, before booking their packages, the UK Muslims must make sure that the company they are booking their packages with are reliable and have a good track record in customer satisfaction.
An Umrah in January makes the stay of pilgrims arriving from the UK in the holy city of Makkah extremely pleasant and comfortable. It also gives them the chance to escape the harsh weather of their home country and experience a pleasant winter in this part of Saudi Arabia. As there is a considerable amount of bookings for the packages offered for this month, it is advisable for Muslims living in the UK to make their bookings several months in advance. This, of course, requires them to make a great deal of planning a few months early and decide the suitable dates for their lesser pilgrimage.
Booking in advance also has many advantages for Muslims of the UK. The very first benefit is that they get their desired package at a lesser cost.
