The Minister of Hajj and Umrah Dr. Tawfiq Al-Rabiah posts about the best times to perform Umrah, including the most peaceful days and time slots for a peaceful Umrah. 

Performing Umrah is a sacred journey that requires careful planning and timing. 

The Minister of Hajj and Umrah Dr. Tawfiq Al-Rabiah took to his X account to share some useful tips and disclosed the best times and days to perform Umrah, based on the level of the crowd.

Morning Times from 7:30 AM – 10:30 AM

If you are looking for a calm and chaos-free experience to perform Umrah, the morning is the perfect one for you. Dr. Al-Rabiah advises the time frame from 7:30 AM to 10:30 AM is the quietest window for Umrah, as there are fewer people and more space. With fewer people, you can complete your Tawaf and pray at the holy site with the utmost focus.

Night Times From 11:00 PM – 2:00 AM

If you prefer performing Tawaf under the moonlight, the evening is the ideal time for Umrah. Dr. Al-Rabiah recommends the period from 11:00 PM to 2:00 AM as the best time for Umrah, as the night sky adds a layer of spirituality and beauty. You can feel a stronger connection between yourself and the surroundings during this time.

Peaceful Days: Sunday, Tuesday, Wednesday

In his tips, Dr. Al-Rabiah also suggests the least crowded days for Umrah, making the journey more comfortable and focused. You can plan your Umrah on Sunday, Tuesday, or Wednesday, as these are the days with the lowest number of pilgrims. You can avoid the congestion and chaos of the peak days, and have a smoother and easier pilgrimage.

The minister’s tips come at a critical time when the Grand Mosque in Makkah is seeing an increase in Umrah performers from around the world. Dr. Al-Rabiah also notes that the current pleasant weather in Makkah creates a comfortable and relaxing environment for the pilgrims to complete their rituals.

By following the tips of Minister Dr. Tawfiq Al-Rabiah, you can enhance your Umrah experience and make it more meaningful and memorable. By picking the best days and time slots, you can have more time to relax and pray at the holy site and make your Umrah truly profound.
